Ext-Scripting is an extension framework for the Apache MyFaces project, its goal is to provide scripting language support and dynamic recompilation and reloading (hotplugging) within JSF.
The long term goal of Ext-Scripting is to have support for most major frameworks which have hooks into Ext-Scripting.
The near term goal is Spring and CDI.
While spring support is being worked for in the inofficial 1.1 branch,
CDI is an open issue, which might be resolvable in the GSOC 2010.
The goal would be to support both implementations within our Ext-Scripting infrastructure.
Following goals have to be reached:
a) Determine which extension points in the implementations can be used to hook ext-scripting in, and provide a prototype for a simple reload
of a single class within those extensions (by using a throw away classloader, but without recompile)
b) Provide a neutral easy to use APIs for framework extensions (that would be a separate issue outside of what should be done within GSOC since it has to be done before summer) for 1.1
c) Implement one of those extensions for at least one implemtation, if time allows for both
