Subject How to start a new workflow project on ASF
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 08:33:25 GMT

Dear all,

we are hosting Enhydra Shark workflow engine project on ObjectWeb
( and would like to move it to Apache.
We would like to start an incubator project at ASF. How should we proceed?
As we read, the candidate project should be approved by a sponsor to enter
the incubator.

A little bit about Enhydra Shark:
It is the most popular open-source java workflow engine completely based on
WfMC standards.
It uses XPDL1.0 as its native workflow process definition language.
It can be embedded into other Java applications (Swing, Console, ...) or can
be used as a server through WebService, EJB, CORBA, ...

Shark's modular, plug-in architecture makes shark suitable for integration
into different kind of projects.

It is a mature project started 5years ago, has a significant community and
more than 100000 downloads on ObjectWeb. It is widely used all around the
world in production, typically integrated into different kind of
applications, from DocumentManagement and government applications up to
applications for special purposes like bank services, HR, Help desk, ... and
in many, many others

We would take out the core engine's functionality and WebService wrappers
from existing Shark project and would continue development on Apache.
The goal of the Shark project on Apache would be to support XPDL2.1.

How do we proceed? Thanks for any input.
