Hi Uli,

That would be very cool.  I've been working on a Wicket integration, as my post below says, which is coming on very nicely.   So I think a Tapestry integration would equally work well.  Especially since - I imagine - you presumably have Tapestry experience whereas I am learning Wicket as I go...

Why don't you subscribe to the current NOF committers mailing list and we'll take it offline in terms of getting you involved?  Details are at the bottom left of the http://nakedobjects.org/ home page.


PS: You might also help us review our Apache project proposal before we post it here?

I'm especially interested in a Tapestry integration ;). You might want to consider me as a committer...

brief posting here would be a good first step.

So: the Apache Isis (?) project will provide the ability to rapidly
develop domain-driven applications. Built on the Naked Objects framework
(http://nakedobjects.org) and a number of related sister projects
(http://starobjects.org), it allows full stack apps to be built just by
writing pojo domain objects. Technically, it's somewhat akin to an ORM,
but rather than just automatically persisting your objects, it
automatically provides all the other necessary layers. This means that
the development goes very very quickly, focusing on the bit that really
matters; the business application.

One particularly important aspect is the ability to customise the
generated UIs. The framework supports pluggable viewers running either
as webapps and RIA, and uses existing libraries such as Apache Wicket to
support customisation. The framework as a whole is customisable and
provides a plugin architecture to allow the other components to be

For some time Naked Objects, the framework, has elicited interest from
"early adopters", but our community remains small. We're hoping that
Apache will provide a platform by which we can grow our community into
the "early majority". We can demonstrate the commitment to do this (two
books have been written on Naked Objects). Until recently there were
just two main committers, both freelancer developers based in the UK.
Since then we have picked up three new committers (in Sweden, USA and
South Africa), two directly attributable to the publication of the
second of these books in Dec 2009.

 From our understanding of the Apache process, our proposal will need
some mentors and a sponsor. Vincent Massol (Maven) has already offered,
as has James Carman (Wicket). We're hoping that this post might interest
a few more, in which case we'll post a formal project proposal.

Thanks for reading this, looking forward to your replies.
