We’'re starting up a new incubator project to provide improved scalability in Jive Messenger. There are a few parts to this project:
Create connection manager/core router implementations. The connection managers are simple slave servers to the core router that have many client connections that get aggregated to a single connection for the core router.
Document an improved component protocol that allows for connection managers.
More information can be found in the following message:
One of the first steps in this project is choosing a great name. So, I’'m proposing the following contest:
Choose a theme for jivesoftware.org code names. Themes make it easier to choose new names and make all the projects feel like they are related. Note, this are code names and not actual product names. As an example, Sun uses animals as code names for new Java releases. Kestrel, Tiger, Dolphin, etc.
Choose a specific name for this project using the theme you came up with.
The winner will be sent a Jive tshirt. Ideas will be collected in this thread. If there are a few community favorites, we’'ll post a poll to decide the final winner.
