ESTIMA Project (SAFIPA), Product Progress

Hellelujah, there is a Reed House Systems B7 Server running on my laptop. It is an Equinox 3.6.0 container running:
  • Spring 3.0.5.RELEASE
  • Spring DM 2.0.0.M1
  • Jetty Web Server 6.1.19
  • CXF 1.2
  • Active MQ 5.4.1
  • Hibernate 3.6
This is our multi-purpose middleware, on which we will be developing a new breed of technologies for rural eService access.

Am currently testing a Twitter app for the platform, which will allow Village Scribes to post their thoughts about using the software in real-time and hear what others who are using the software are saying. Of course, I am not employed as a programmer, so why the effort? Well, I am trying to figure out whether the architecture we are using to connect the Javascript based web browser front-ends (using GWT) are efficiently connected to the middleware and the data objects available there. As you may know, GWT-RPC limits the kinds of Java Objects one can pass between these layers. The result is the use of DTO's that shadow the original data objects.

TeleWeaver is as yet not locked into GWT. We also have Swing interfaces. GWT is itself fast evolving as Google tries to integrate it into Android and then on the other hand there is the solution for our version 2.0: Spring Roo. Spring Roo is a very young technology, which I can see us embracing fully. This year is going to be fun!

A lot of our functionality is duplicated in JBoss, especially with their new loading method, which is so similar to OSGi, and of course the SEAM servlet building technology. I wonder who will have the smaller and more efficient footprint by the end of the project, 15 Nov 2011?

TeleWeaver at SEWF2011

At this point in time, it is looking very much like Ron Wertlen is going to be giving sneak previews of TeleWeaver at the World Cafe at SEWF2011. All interested persons are invited to come by to the WorldCafe gatherings at lunch time and see what this future rural access software offers!!
