FAQ
It is with great pleasure that I get to announce that the Cayenne PMC
has voted to make Robert Zeigler a committer of the Apache Cayenne
project. Robert has been a longtime member of the Cayenne community,
offering help on the user list, issues in JIRA, and patches for
various issues. He is also one of the primary authors of the third
party Tapestry5-Cayenne integration module. His experience with using
Cayenne in various capacities should bring a lot to the project.

Robert, welcome to the team. If you don't have an ICLA on file yet,
please visit the following page:

and read up on your new role:

http://www.apache.org/dev/new-committers-guide.html


Andrus, would you mind filing an infra request to set up Robert's
account? If not, I can try to do so . . . you're just a bit more
versed in this procedure than me.

Once again, congratulations.

    Congrats Robert, and welcome to the team as a committer! :-)

    I can take care of the account setup. Robert, please email me
    privately a couple of unix ids for your account, in the order of
    preference.

    Thanks,
    Andrus

    Thanks for the vote of confidence.
    I've enjoyed using cayenne for the last 4-5 years. I came to cayenne
    looking for alternatives to hibernate. Although hibernate was
    powerful, it also seemed grossly complicated and opaque. I've
    thoroughly enjoyed cayenne's focus on the /developer/ experience, ease
    of use, and transparency of the framework. As a committer, some of my
    interests are:

    1) To improve the usability and learnability of the framework
    Recent experiences in teaching new users the ins and outs of the
    framework have highlighted a few fringe cases that can be frustrating,
    including:
    a) Differences in handling between relationships vs. properties,
    particularly in the context of transient vs. non-transient objects
    b) Difficulties in providing a satisfactory solution to the problem
    of dirty state being potentially perpetuated and preventing clean
    commits
    * This relates to a, particularly in relation to web-development
    * More details later

    2) To expand the feature-set to be more competitive with other ORM
    tools out there, while maintaining the simplicity and transparency
    that is cayenne.

    3) To continue integration efforts
    * As Kevin mentioned, I've worked considerably on integrating
    Tapestry 5 and Cayenne; I would like to improve that integration,
    whether the project eventually winds up as a subject project of
    cayenne, tapestry, or neither.

    My thanks, as well, to the cayenne community who has always been
    considerate, helpful, and intelligent.

    Welcome aboard Robert! I hope to look at the Cayenne+Tapestry stuff
    more in the near future and can hopefully contribute a bit.
