Eclipse Ozark provides an implementation for Model View Controller API (MVC 1.0), starting from the specification defined by Java Community Process JSR-371.
The MVC API and TCK are being proposed as part of the Eclipse Project for MVC.
Eclipse Ozark is an implementation of action-based MVC specifiec by MVC 1.0 (JSR-371). It builds on top of JAX-RS and currently contains support for RESTEasy, Jersey and CXF with a well-defined SPI for other imlementations.
The top level EE4J project was created consistent with the direction described in The Eclipse Enterprise for Java Project Top Level Project Charter (https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/ee4j/charter). This project is created under the top level EE4J project as one of technologies originally targeted for Java EE 8. It makes sense to follow the other technologies transfered by Oracle.
During the transfer from Oracle to Ivar Grimstad in 2017 all artifacts were checked for licensing issues, so everything should be in order.
Ozark is currently licensed under the Apache License, Version 2.0
An initial contribution will be made in Q1 2018. This will be based on the milestone release associated with the Public Review of JSR-371. A 1.0 release is expected to be ready during Q2 2018 in conjunction with the final release of JSR 371.
Development of Ozark is expected to track the development of the to-be-created Eclipse Project for MVC (based on current JSR-371).
