The Eclipse Lyo project is focused on providing an SDK to enable adoption of OSLC specifications. OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration: http://open-services.net) is an open community dedicated to reducing barriers for lifecycle tool integration. The community authors specifications for exposing lifecycle artifacts through uniform (REST) interfaces and relying on Internet and Linked Data standards.
Eclipse Lyo project is a companion to the continuing specification efforts of the OSLC community. Its main purpose is to expand adoption of OSLC specifications and to enable the Eclipse community to easily build OSLC compliant tools.
This is the fourth release of Lyo components as an Eclipse project. The goals are to continue to build an Eclipse community around Lyo by providing enhancements to the Java SDK for OSLC (OSLC4J), an update to the OSLC assessment test suite and code samples of OSLC provider and consumer implementations.
2.1.0 is an incremental release with several enhancements:
- A sample OSLC Automation provider for Hudson written as a plugin
- OSLC test suites driven by resource shapes, greatly reducing the amount of configuration
- New user interfaces for change management, quality management, and automation OSLC reference implementations
