Lauren Fournier Company News Leave a Comment

The Keyhole team is proud to announce the release of the khsSherpa framework, a JSON Endpoint Open Source Framework for Mobile and HTML5 Support. This framework is now publicly available on gitHub, and version 1.1 is available in the Maven Public Central Repository.

Technical Description: khsSherpa is a lightweight framework that enables remote Java classes resident in a JEE WAR component accessed via HTTP. The intent of the khsSherpa framework is to invoke service side Java classes and execute methods that are members of this endpoint. Member method execution can accept parameters via an HTTP request or return object values serialized as JSON objects. The framework utilizes the Jackson JSON framework to serialize result objects. Features of the framework include annotation-based configuration, authentication, session support, pluggable user activity logging, and the ability to work with any JEE Application Server.

The Keyhole Software team is a proponent of the benefits of open source software. We often encourage our clients to consider open source solutions as a cost-effective, equal-quality alternative to proprietary software. Our team members frequently contribute to open source projects, as well as commit our own projects to open source repositories like gitHub.

“We are happy to have created khsSherpa,” Project Lead David Pitt said, “and we hope other developers will find this framework useful.”
