When the DD4T Java version is released, will there be a Java version of the STRI?
Yes, there will be.
We had a lot of work putting this one together (more than initially expected, and more than we needed for .NET) and actually there's already a lot of that work surfacing in the DD4T 2.0 project.
Right now we're at a stage where we're nearly dev complete, but QA and Documentation is still missing. I am aiming (hoping?) for an April/May release.
Yes there will be a Java version of STRI, we actually have written all (or maybe I should be safe and say most) of the code already.
But there are a few things holding us back from releasing it to the community at this point. It is not waiting for DD4T 2.0 to be released, but we will try to include DD4T 2.0 if that comes out before we can release.
As soon as the hurdles are taken there will be a Java version, which is architecturally similar to the .NET release.
