This page contains the project plans for the Eclipse Lyo project. The first part of the plan describes the various components of Lyo and the currently planned enhancements to functionality. These are categorized as MUST, SHOULD or MAY items based on how the project participants have ranked them. This plan is subject to changes based on community participation and the importance of proposed functionality to the community - we encourage anyone interested to participate. The planning process will be as open as possible and this plan will be updated as it changes. Please provide feedback on the mailing list.

Lyo Components


  • Documentation
  • Constant strings for OSLC namespaces and providers
  • POJO model for OSLC resources
  • RDF parser and serializer
  • JSON parser and serializer

Test suite for OSLC

The test suite for OSLC is currently available on the Lyo project. See the Lyo test suite page for details. Currently planned enhancements are

  • Add reporting capabilities
  • Improve Change Management MUST and SHOULD requirement coverage
  • Improve Requirements and Change Management MUST coverage
  • Improved query tests
  • Improved Oauth tests

  * Soliciting contributions for other domains
  • M2 (Q1 2011) - theme is initial Java SDK and refactored reference implementations
  * Initial Java provider and client SDK
  * Example reference implementations based on the SDK
  * Additional test suite enhancements to support apps written with the SDK
  • M3/Beta (Q2 2011)
  * Full Java provider and client SDKs
  * Reference implementation completely refactored to take advantage of SDK 
  * Reference implementation can use pluggable RDF/application server providers
  * Documentation
  • Release candidates and 1.0 (Q3 2011)
  * Stretch items based on community participation
     * non-Java language SDKs
