SubversionJ (SVNJ) to provide a Java API to leverage Subversion

SubversionJ, or SVNJ for the Subversion open source project will today be presented at SubConf 2009. SVNJ will provide a rich server-side Java API that will leverage Subversion’s established code base written in the C programming language.

This will allow the Subversion community to reach out to millions of JAVA developers and enable the same expansion and enrichment of Subversion functionality on the server-side that has been seen on the client-side due to the rich set of APIs for JAVA, Python and Perl that are available.
SubversionJ’s goals are to:
Reach out to millions of JAVA developers who may become contributors.
Reuse the existing Subversion code base wherever possible.
Provide a server-side SVN/DAV implementation that will deploy in any standard J2EE container.
Provide a simple, pluggable API for custom authentication and authorization implementations.
Provide an API for a wide range of database back ends to offer deployment options beyond FSFS.
