Earlier this week, the Apache Software Foundation's Infrastructure Team launched a new status service that displays a ton of information about the health of the Apache infrastructure and activity within its projects. Daniel Gruno, infrastructure architect at the ASF, explains how the service came to be and where it's headed....
The ASF is made up of nearly 150 top level projects which cover a wide range of technologies. Chances are if you are looking for a rewarding experience in Open Source, you are going to find it here.
Apache Deltacloud provides common front-end APIs to abstract differences between cloud providers.
Deltacloud contains a cloud abstraction API - whether the Deltacloud classic API, the DMTF CIMI API or even the EC2 API. Each abstraction API works as a wrapper around a large number of clouds, shielding users from their differences. For every cloud provider there is a driver "speaking" that cloud provider's native API, freeing you from dealing with the particulars of each cloud's API.
Xerces-C++ is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of C++.
Xerces-C++ is a validating XML parser written in a portable subset of C++. Xerces-C++ makes it easy to give your application the ability to read and write XML data. A shared library is provided for parsing, generating, manipulating, and validating XML documents. Xerces-C++ is faithful to the XML 1.0 and 1.1 recommendations and many associated standards. The parser provides high performance, modularity, and scalability. Source code, samples and API documentation are provided with the parser. For portability, care has been taken to make minimal use of templates, no RTTI, and minimal use of #ifdefs.
