Java library for handling Atom 1.0

02 February, 2006

Rome 0.8 came out this morning, and now has support for Atom 1.0, rather timely given my current work! You can download it from the Rome releases page.

As far as I’m aware, this is the first Java library for creating and reading Atom 1.0 feeds, and very easy to use it is too.

Hi Phil,

We’re not the first, but AFAIK we’re the most active… and Atom 1.0 support is a big differentiator at the moment.

Have fun with ROME, and if you get stuck, don’t hesitate to join the mailing lists and ask for help.

Thanks guys.

It says a lot for the ease of use that I was able to get started reading, parsing and creating Atom 1.0 feeds with a pre-0.8 CVS version of ROME, without any documentation.

There are a couple of nicities I’d like to see, but what’s already there is great!
