Working on Apache Karaf Cookbook

The last couple of month I spent a lot of my private time on writing. Not so much on writing blog posts, but writing articles and a cookbook. The articles are about what’s new with Karaf 3.0, building an enterprise application with Karaf I and II.  These articles where and are going to be published in the german JavaMagazin (yeah sorry it’s all in german)

The other big thing I currently work on during my private time is the Apache Karaf Cookbook. This book is written by Jamie Goodyear, Johan Edstrom, Heith Kesler (all of them authors of „Learning Apache Karaf“) and me. It will covering Apache Karaf and tries to give some ideas on how to:

More then 350.000 downloads for Pax Web

Now this is pretty amazing, just checked the recent download statistics at oss.sonatype and I have to say it’s pretty impressive.


Just within one year the downloads jumped from less then 150.000 to more then 350.000 downloads. That’s more then 200.000 more within the year for all org.ops4j.pax.web downloadable artifacts.

The same increase over the year can be found for the pax-web-jetty bundle. From about 20.000 downloads in November 2012 (I already thought of being pretty impressive), increased to more then 60.000 downloads in November 2013.

Pax Web breaks the 200.000 downloads barrier

Pax Web breaks the 200.000 downloads barrier

just today I checked the latest download numbers from the central statistics for the pax-web project. It’s been good that I’ve been sitting already, cause a increase from 125.000 to more then 200.000 downloads, that’s quite impressive.

Thanks to all the people using Pax-Web, this number gives me faith in beeing on the right track with Pax-Web.

Bellow are just some graphics from the download statistics, as usual the three most important. All Artefacts downloaded (which is 200.000), all pax-web-jetty bundles (> 35.000) and all pax-web-jetty-bundles (the prebundled pax-web including jetty with around 4.000).
