Subject Empire-db release 2.0.2 ready for incubation
Date Mon, 07 Jul 2008 08:23:48 GMT

Before we (hopefully) enter the Apache Incubator we have completed pending development tasks
on Empire-db and Empire-Struts2-Extentsions which are now available on with
release 2.0.2 (Empire-db) respectively release 1.0.2 (Empire-Struts2-Extentsions).

The most significant improvement is the provision of new classes for accessing non-relational
data like e.g. from WebServices of flat files through Empire-db's data and metadata interfaces.
This provides uniform client level access for JavaBean or other data objects and tabular data
alike. The new classes can be found in the package.

The tag and input control definitions of the Empire-Struts2-Extentions have been changed accordingly
to work solely with the interfaces and a new class BeanActionSupport assists with form input

Besides its flexible, high-performance relational database access features one of Empire-db's
biggest advantages are its metadata management capabilities which can significantly reduce
redundancies in the presentation and business layers as well as allow a much better separation
of model and view. The Empire-Struts2-Extentions project gives a good example how this can
be achieved.

We would like to encourage other developers to provide solutions for other presentation layer
frameworks - for both web and rich-client applications. If anyone's interested please let
us know and we're happy to give our support.
