[ANN] New committer - Jörg Rade

Hi folks,

I'm delighted to announce that Jörg Rade has been voted in as a committer for Apache Isis, and also as a member of the Apache Isis PMC.  The first gives Jörg the right to commit changes directly to Isis' codebase, the second gives him the right to be involved in future votes.

Jörg has been active in the community for more than five years, and has been actively been developing a new viewer for the framework, called "Kroviz" .  This runs against the REST API provided by the Restful Objects viewer, and is implemented in Kotlin (running in the browser as KotlinJS).  I'm delighted to say that Jörg will be donating this codebase to the framework and will continue to develop it within our new "incubator".

Jörg is also very visible on our new Slack channel (he's been sharing the status on Kroviz there for quite a while) so if you want to ping him and ask him questions about this new viewer, I'm sure he'd be very willing 

I'm looking forward to continue working with Jörg in the future; another great addition to Isis' committers.

InfoQ article introducing Restful Objects (implemented by Apache Isis)

Just to say that InfoQ have posted an article [1] that introduces the Restful Objects spec [2], and its two implementations, Apache Isis [3] being one of them.

Restful Objects is all about providing a hypermedia API from a domain model.  In the case of Isis, this is done automatically, leveraging its internal metamodel.  

Because Restful Objects is a spec, it also opens up possibilities for independently developed clients (eg Javascript) and server implementations; indeed this is already happening and has brought some "new blood" into our community.  

Anyway, if the idea of marrying up REST and domain models sounds of interest, check out the article.
