I’ve recently discovered Hackystat, an impressive project that has announced its decision to use Restlet as the foundation for of its version 8. Apparently, the first steps in the Restlet waters went well!

“Hackystat is an open source framework for automated collection and analysis of software engineering process and product metrics. Hackystat users attach software “sensors” to their development tools, which unobtrusively collect and send raw data about development to a Hackystat web application for analysis and display.”The project is led by Philip Johnson, helped by his team of students of the Collaborative Software Development Laboratory, part of University of Hawaii. There are now active members of the Restlet community and will be a great public reference for Restlet when their version 8 is released!
