Apache Shale moved into the Attic in May 2009. Shale was a web application framework, fundamentally based on JavaServer Faces. This blog entry from Kito Mann is an excellent discussion of Shale's retirement: http://blogs.jsfcentral.com/editorsdesk/entry/shale_in_the_attic.

Discussion on the mailing list indicated that Seam and MyFaces were the natural successors to Shale.

As with any project in the Attic - if you should choose to fork Shale outside of Apache, please let us know so we can link to your project.

The Shale Test code has been forked into the MyFaces project - http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/myfaces/test/trunk/.
