Apache Droids - an intelligent standalone robot framework
In the session we give an introduction into Apache Droids, Droids aims to be an intelligent standalone robot framework that allows to create and extend existing droids (robots). In the future it will offer an administration application to manage and control the different droids. Apache Droids is not designed for a special usecase, it is a framework: Take what you need, do what you want. Droids makes it very easy to extend existing robots or write a new one from scratch, which can automatically seek out relevant online information based on the user's specifications and invoke arbitrary business logic. If a project needs special processing for a crawled url the developer can easily write different kind of plugins to implement the functionality. The project started as an Apache Labs project and entered the Apache Incubator with Apache HttpComponents and Apache Lucene as mentoring project.
