Tapestry promoted to Apache top level

Howard Lewis Shipp, developer of Jakarta Tapestry and Jakarta HiveMind, writes in his Tapestry and HiveMind blog this week that the Apache Board unanimously voted to promote the Tapestry project to the top level.

"We've only just received notice of the vote, but very soon now, there will be," Shipp says. "This isn't so much about Tapestry as it is about Jakarta, representing the fact that Jakarta is re-organizing into more of a 'meta-incubator,' with the goal of all successful projects (outside of commons) moving up to the top level."

Tapestry, which has been released under the Apache software license, is a framework intended to enable open-source developers to create dynamic and scalable Java Web apps.
