WHAT IS RETIC ?
Retic is an EAI Server.
The aim is to permit applications to communicate, even if they
don't speak the same language (which means transport protocols
as well as data structures).
This is done by building adaptors. An adaptor is composed of :
- One source
- Several pipes (process data transformations)
- Several sinks (destination of data)
- Several loggers (using log4j)
- Preprocessors (executed only once before adaptor execution - for
example => drop/create a table through a SQL query)
- Postprocessors (executed only once after adaptor execution - for
example => creation of an index on a table through a SQL query)
It is written in Jython and works 100% fine with only Java 1.3+ installed
(although some libs like cocoon.jar and poi-block.jar might only work on
Java 1.4, delete them in case you can't upgrade) on your system (jython 2.1
is embedded in the releases).
It provides connectivity with : JMS, HTTP, SOAP, UDDI, FTP, Xindice, JDBC,
Jabber, SMTP and more...
