I'm not going to drag this announcement out, as I've been waiting far too long to bring something like this to the Jive Developer community!
What is Jive-Fu?
Jive-Fu is a reference plugin that I have put together with the assistance of some of my fellow Jivers, such as Ryan King, and even some of our community developers, such as it2000 In this plugin, I have taken a stab at wiring together all the files and configurations to help clarify the steps needed to implement a feature in the plugin framework.
Goal: Illustrate connectivity between elements of the plugin framework. It is functional for educational purposes; however,
IT IS NOT FOR USE IN PRODUCTION ENVIRONMENTS!
Where can I get Jive-Fu?
Note: This plugin is currently built for Jive 5.0.2.x.
This plugin hasn't been fully tested (yet), there are most certainly bugs as a result of me bringing examples from the various sources; however, the patterns and connectivity are sound between the required elements in the plugin framework. I hope to have the plugin fully vetted in the coming months, but even in its current state, I believe it is extremely valuable.
Here are a list of some of the initial implementations that are provided in this first installment,
- Web Services - CXF/Spring
- JAX-WS (SOAP)
- JAX-RS (REST)
- DAO - Spring JDBC Templates
- Jive Features
Stay Tuned for more updates on the Jive-Fu front. In the mean time, give it a look and feel free to share your thoughts and updates if you are so inclined.
