The subject of this topic describes the most likely outcome now that the subproject lead has moved on. Since nobody has stepped in to volunteer to lead the Gemini Management subproject it will be terminated/sit in hibernation, with no development, maintenance or support.

If you use Gemini Management and/or are interested in becoming the lead please make it known ASAP either by replying to this post or by emailing the common Gemini dev mailing list (gemini-dev@eclipse.org). No experience is necessary, but either a knowledge of, or willingness to learn about the project is obviously going to help! The time commitment depends upon the volunteer, but a couple of hours a week is an estimated minimum.

Thank you.
-Mike Keith
Gemini parent project lead

PS Note that Gemini DBAccess, Gemini JPA, Gemini Web and Gemini Naming are still very much active projects with project leads and committers.

Hi,

To anyone thinking about stepping up, the time required is even less than Mike has suggested. The project simply provides an implementation of the OSGi enterprise JMX spec. There should be no major work required unless the spec changes or you feel like improving the test coverage. The code base isn't very big and no bugs have been raised in quite some time. I'm not disappearing off the internet and I'm more than happy to provide any help wanted to someone stepping up.

Thanks, Chris.

As Management, Virgo is without a project leader too, and on risky to be shutdown too!

Hi,

Fear not, Florian Waibel from Eclispe source has stepped up to take on the leadership of Gemini Management. The paperwork is in progress at the moment. We are still looking for someone to take on Virgo, if you or your company are using Virgo why not see if a little extra commitment to the project would be acceptable and step up to take the lead.

Chris.

Hi Chris Frost! Good news!!

Unfortunatelly, about Virgo, I'm not work on any company right now. I'm trying to open one, and I'm developing a new product to do that, and I have a contract with a small company of some friends, to fit my basic needs in this time.
To make things harder, I'm just an user of Virgo. I'm not a OSGi specialist, and I dont know Virgo internals. My knowledge is very far from any Virgo commiters Sad.

Hi Chris!

I'm working on a project of a production automation system. We are developing Hardware and Software.

The management software is a Web product, and is directed to administrative tasks, including, setup of the automation production parameters of products. In true, each product of each company can use several equipments to be produced, like mixers, liquid valves, etc. Eeach hardware haves its own ways to operate. So, for each hardware parameters implementation, I have a small specialist bundle, that provide services for the web application. Latter, this parameters and production orders is delivered to a desktop application that do the hard work Smile.
This management application runs with Virgo Tomcat and Vaadin.

The desktop application:
To control the hardware, we have another application, a desktop one, that runs with JavaFX 2 and Virgo Kernel, that effectivelly manage the production sending commands to our hardware that manages the eletric and eletronic stuff. Each device protocol is implemented as bundles, because each customer and their factorys have different ones.

And it's not only it. We have bundles to integrate to other systems, or to do customer specific tasks, without changing the general core, etc.

It will be mutch harder to develop this, without OSGi!
