RSS/Atom Publishing Made Easy

leave a comment »

Rome is an easy to use and configure Java library for creating RSS and Atom feeds. As with all such libraries, Rome lets developers write feeds using a simple object model. Rome is responsible for producing the feed compliant XML. The product supports several flavours of RSS and Atom.
While Rome works well as a servlet, large web properties are probably better off producing feeds as a scheduled batch or background thread and saving them to the local file system for a web server to handle. This allows the application server to focus on what it does best (serve dynamic requests) while delegating the serving of static content to web servers.
