Any update on this one? Hope it's still on the roadmap?
We are planning to release a new plugin based on Active Objects when the marketplace is ready, but I'm not sure if it makes sense as long as Active Objects in Confluence is still a development preview.
I've been getting productive with AO in JIRA, switching to Confluence to do a bunch of refresh releases and pretty much expecting it to be there in the 4.2beta, but no. And its still marked as a developer preview - https://developer.atlassian.com/display/AO/Installing+Active+Objects
IMO not having AO support in Confluence is a severe impediment to plugin development, XML serialisation is a PITA but the current only option.
Please raise over coffee sometime, perhaps it will get on someone's radar. Out of interest, what's the blocker in getting AO along the release roadmap?
I've heard that one blocker is the missing support for DB2 databases. Confluence supports DB2, but Active Objects only supports MySQL, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, HSQLDB and Derby. JIRA never supported DB2.
It looks like they plan to ship it in Confluence 4.3 as beta and then to release it officially in Confluence 4.4.
That's just what I've heard, not sure if this is true though.
As of Confluence 4.3 - ActiveObjects is now in and fully supported for plugin developers! Woooooooohoooo!
Atlassian doesn't provide dates for new features or releases, so we can't really say when that will be included.
Adding ActiveObjects to Confluence seems to be the only way to get those modules added for the moment, but as the little info-box says:
"Ultimately Active Objects should be integrated and bundled in each Atlassian product so that this step is no longer necessary. Until then you will have to configure your project so that libraries are added to your product when developing."
are there any updates on this yet?
Btw: We've noticed that the ActiveObjects plugin 0.19.x is not compatible with hsql 2.2.4, which is shipped with Confluence. If we run our unit tests against 184.108.40.206 it works.
