Informa : RSS Library for Java

Informa Project

What is Informa?

The goal of the Informa Project is to provide a
news aggregation library based on the Java Platform.
The idea was born by the authors of two Java news reader
applications (HotSheet and Risotto). We
intended to unify the common parts into a library which can be used by
any developer who needs to address those issues in their

With Informa we enable you with a harmonised view on a news
channel object model. Both channels and news items do have
metadata assigned, it does not make any difference from which
channel format they were originally retrieved (RSS 0.9x, RSS
1.0 / RDF, RSS 2.0, Atom 0.3 and Atom 1.0).

To ease finding relevant news items an integration
with the full-text search
engine (Jakarta's Lucene)
may be used optionally.
