The purpose of the Blitz project is to further the use of JavaSpaces
and JINITM through the provision of essential
resources such as:
- Pattern library - these patterns should be available
both code and document forms and will provide users with solutions to
common (and hopefully more advanced) issues.
- Openly available implementations of various services,
and frameworks - developed and refined over time, based on the
experience of people using them in anger.
- Deployment examples - reference information
ways in which JavaSpaces and JINI technologies have been applied in the
real world. These will be useful to both architects and administrators.
We believe that the best way to achieve the above is in
open, co-operative manner thus Blitz is an OpenSource
project. Until recently, SUN's approach to JINI licensing made things difficult,
but JINI is now licensed under ALv2.
Many thanks to all those people who have contributed to
project in various ways so far.
