Introduction

This page has been created to reorganize the Geotools modules, in particular to establish:

  • which modules have been abandoned, and should be removed from the codebase
  • which unmantained modules can get a new mantainer, which ones should be moved to unsupported land

Modules table

This table reports module maintainers that I know are still active and part of the
project. If a module reports of being maintained by James McGill, Martin Desruisseaux,
Cory Horner, David Zwiers or Brent Owens I just marked the module as unmaintained
(whoever will take up that module will fix the pom, if the module is to be dropped,
no need to clean its pom up to start with).

Module

Current/Proposed maintaner

Notes, suggested action

build/dummy/jaxb

none

aa: remove?
sg: remove

build/maven/archetype

none

aa: remove?
mb: broken for a while I think and most new users seem to find it just as easy to hack the geotools essentials into the quickstart archetype
sg: remove

build/maven/archetype/src/main/resources/archetype-resources

none

aa: remove?
sg: remove

build/maven/archetype/target/classes/archetype-resources

none

aa: remove
sg: remove
(error) jg: done

build/maven/build-configs

none

Contains Jalopy license, which does not seem to work.
aa: remove
sg: remove

build/maven/jar-collector

none

aa: can it be replaced with the standard "dependency" module?
sg: I am not sure they do exactly the same work. This one should be a bit smarter. To check

build/maven/javadoc

none

Contains custom taglet to show the source of a file and a tool to add such a taglet to existing files.
aa: remove and replace with a custom doclet instead? Find less maintenance heavy ways to locate a file inside the GeoTools sources?

build/maven/javamaker

none

Used for integration with OpenOffice
aa: remove
sg: remove

build/maven/jjtree-javacc

none

aa: check if this can be replaced with the Mojo plugin: http://mojo.codehaus.org/javacc-maven-plugin/, if so, remove
sg: +1

none

RMI compiler plugin.

depends on unsupported code

sg: remove

demo/libraryJTS

none

Old Adrian JTS demo
aa: jgarnett said he would merge this into demo/example

demo/mappane-use

demo/svgsupport

none

Single small class... maybe merge with the example module?
sg: +1

demo/example

jgarnett

demo/xml-po

jdeolive

Not in the build right now. Time to move it back or... to remove it?

modules/unsupported/jts-wrapper

bnordgren

modules/unsupported/mappane

none

aa: M. Bedward is working on this in a branch, will move to demo?
jg: it will eventually move to extension; possibly with whatever I like for swing-widgets
mb: current hacking is happening in the 2.6.x_JMapPane_move branch

scolebourne

aa: dead since a long time. Remove?
jg: remove
sg: remove

modules/unsupported/ogc/net.opengis.ows

none

aa: actually, I think the maintainer is jdeolive. Move to extension?
jd: yup, i am the maintainer, and yes, we should move it to extension
jg: we have waited on this to pass QA checks; and we do not have a clear location for "models" such as this; they are required by some of the plugins and thus are not an extension

modules/unsupported/ogc/net.opengis.wcs

none

aa: actually, I think the maintainer is jdeolive. Move to extension?
sg: alessio?

modules/unsupported/ogc/net.opengis.wfs

jg: think this is a workaround while they hack

modules/unsupported/temporal

none

sg: daniele
dr: ok. Assign it to me

modules/unsupported/tile

jgarnett

aa: has this a future?
jg: the code was picked up and made good in uDig 1.2 - leave it for the SOC student to harvest from and then we can kill it. I may consider backporting into the wms modules along with wms-c support

none

aa: no development in years too. Remove?
sg: remove

modules/unsupported/widgets-swing-pending

jgarnett

will combine with widgets-swing as an unsupported module
