Welcome to Apache Wookie ========================= Apache Wookie is a Java server application that allows you to upload and deploy widgets for your applications; widgets can not only include all the usual kinds of mini-applications, badges, and gadgets, but also fully-collaborative applications such as chats, quizzes, and games. Wookie is based on the W3C Widgets specification, but widgets can also be included that use extended APIs such as Google Wave Gadgets and OpenSocial. Administrators can upload Widgets packaged according to the W3C Widgets specification, and makes these available to applications using a REST API. Applications typically have a plugin that implements this REST API, and enables users to pick widgets from a gallery of those available to add to their pages. There is a Connector Framework included in Wookie for many different programming languages that simplifies the process of writing plugins. Crypto Notice ============== This distribution includes cryptographic software. The country in which you currently reside may have restrictions on the import, possession, use, and/or re-export to another country, of encryption software. BEFORE using any encryption software, please check your country's laws, regulations and policies concerning the import, possession, or use, and re-export of encryption software, to see if this is permitted. See <http://www.wassenaar.org/> for more information. The U.S. Government Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has classified this software as Export Commodity Control Number (ECCN) 5D002.C.1, which includes information security software using or performing cryptographic functions with asymmetric algorithms. The form and manner of this Apache Software Foundation distribution makes it eligible for export under the License Exception ENC Technology Software Unrestricted (TSU) exception (see the BIS Export Administration Regulations, Section 740.13) for both object code and source code. The following provides more details on the included cryptographic software: Apache Santuario : http://santuario.apache.org/ Getting Started =============== For a source distribution, please read BUILDING for instructions on building Apache Wookie. Apache Wookie is made available in a standalone binary distribution, which means that once you download it, you should be able to run wookie 'out of the box' without having to download and configure any other components * Please read STANDALONE_BUILD_NOTES for this (Available if you have the standalone build only) Additionally a WAR archive binary distribution is also made available for Wookie. This is designed for users who wish to use/integrate Wookie into their existing server environment - an existing Tomcat instance for example. * Please read WAR_BUILD_NOTES for this (Available If you have the WAR build only) You may also want to refer to RELEASE_NOTES for the list of changes in this release; this also contains information about any known issues.
