The first release of rPlan can be downloaded from RubyForge!
I will be pleased about your comments!
rPlan is a project task planning tool that can be used for every project. It is independent of the project model (RUP, XP, Scrum etc). Tasks can be assigned to developers and they can report their work.
rPlan will provide several reports for project controlling.
Since yesterday evening the first version of jBatchEngine can be downloaded at SourceForge:
On weekend I started a new opensorce project:
jBatchEngine is a kind of Batch Spooler. But it is event driven. It triggers entries in a database tabelle and later of a message queue.
It can start any batch program written in any langugage.
Currently I’m porting the server part of jTrackAndField from Java, Servlet, Hibernate to Ruby on Rails and Webservices.
Thus I can use the same code for master data administration AND remoting of jTrackAndField! jTrackAndField will be more DRY!
I will document my experience with Ruby on Rails and Webservices here.
The domainmodel is no longer a pure datacontainer, but it contains the businesslogic as in the early years of OO.
For many datadriven applications there will be an advantage that you can ommit an unnecessairy layering. Thus the logic for one entity will be in this entity and you can avoid codeduplication. Your will be more DRY (don’t repeat yourself).
I’m wondering how you think about this trend and if anybody has allready implemented any bigger project in this meaning.
