Subject Re: Jt Pattern Oriented Framework (looking for champion/mentors)
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2008 07:41:07 GMT
Hi Ed,

Judging from, there is one active person on
the project, and now discussion or other signs of community
whatshowever. Wouldn't it be a good idea to start building up a
community on that site first?

on design patterns.

objects should be able to interchange information and perform computations by sending, receiving
and processing messages. A messaging API provides strong encapsulation and loose coupling;
framework components can be easily plugged into complex framework applications using a "lego/messaging"
architecture. The framework should take full advantage of the power and simplicity of the
messaging design pattern.

components: remote framework objects should be treated as local objects. Design patterns implemented
by the framework (adapters, remote proxies and facades) should make this posible by hiding
the complexities associated with remote APIs.

adapters, proxies and the implementation of related design patterns. These technologies include
BPM, DAO implementations, MVC implementations, EJBs, JMS, XML and Web Services.

(low overhead).

efforts. There should be a tight correspondence between UML design diagrams and the framework
messaging based applications and components needed for the implementation. Ideally, the framework
should provide wizards and automated capabilities for generating framework applications. Framework
components should be easily added to BPM process diagrams. In future versions of the framework,
it should be possible for applications to be generated directly from the UML design diagrams.
> G) The framework messaging architecture should facilitate testing and debugging efforts.
The framework should provide capabilities for testing components independently (each component
as a unit) by sending messages and verifying the reply (output) messages.

with open source IDEs.
