Hi to all,

I'm Davide Savazzi, I'm an Italian developer and student.
I've been accepted in the Google Summer of Code program, thanks to
Craig's proposal on 'adding support for Neo4j graph database in
Geotools and uDig'.

Few months ago I've started working in my spare time on the Neo4j
Spatial project (http://github.com/neo4j/neo4j-spatial), I've created
a service for storing layers of geometries, indexed by an rtree, and a
shapefile importer.

The simplified roadmap for this project is:
- adding a network / routing service (needed for GSOC)
- adding a topology storage service (not needed right now)

In the Community Bonding Period I've read all the uDig training
materials, tried the examples and I've read also some other
documentation on Eclipse and SWT.
I've also completed a prototype of a read-only DataStore (tested with
GeoTools JMapFrame).

I've just downloaded uDig 1.2-RC3 SDK and this week I'll try to insert
this DataStore in uDig, maybe using the new Generic DataStore support.
Then the next steps could be:
- optimize this DataStore, adding Query support
- add Write operations support

I'll write a report on my activity every Monday.

Best regards,
Davide Savazzi
