OrientWare and ObjectWeb Cooperation

Due to the highly fragmented market the potential of Europe and China depend on its capability to collaborate efficiently. R&D is required in new models for co-operation in software development taking advantage of the European and Chinese strong position in education level, middleware technology and open source development.

The overall technical goal of the cooperation between ObjectWeb and Orientware is to develop a common open source platform for next generation middleware focusing on the development and enhancement of a comprehensive set of open source adaptable middleware components.

The overall roadmap includes the set up of joint projects on topics of common interest such as component-based architecure, SOA/web services, workflow, transactions, J2EE, autonomous management, CCM and Grid computing.
Common contributions will be released as open source under LGPL licence.
