It has been a while since I last sent out an update on the development
progress, so here is an update ;).
0.3 is very close to release (within the week). The focus of 0.3 was

robust framework. I started working with Jgroups but it did not fit my
strategy of send-side filtering. So, I found a gem of a project from
Apache called MINA.

MINA (Multipurpose Infrastructure for Network Applications) is a network
application framework which helps users develop high performance and
high scalability network applications easily.
I'm not going to go over MINA's architecture in this e-mail but I

I have also been implementing the concurrency strategy that will allow
multiple threads to utilize one FederateAmbassador in a truly concurrent

I'm almost done with the Ownership Management test case (just have to
test requesting divestiture). When that test case is complete, I will
Below is the roadmap for OHLA releases. Hopefully one will come every
3-4 weeks or so.
- re-architect to use Apache MINA
- ownerhsip management
- time management
- MOM support
- C++ API
- optimize message encoding/decoding
