OpenEAI Software Foundation Opens Project Web Site
OpenEAI Project Web Site, Software, and Documentation Available
Champaign, IL, USA. January 31, 2003.
The OpenEAI Software Foundation today made publicly available for the first time the OpenEAI Project web site, http://www.OpenEAI.org. This site describes in detail the OpenEAI open source project and the OpenEAI Software Foundation, and allows download of, under specified open source licenses, the first release of the project's core documentation suite, release 3.0 beta 2 of the OpenEAI foundational APIs and corresponding API documentation, example implementations of message-aware applications and application gateways, and reference implementations of OpenEAI messaging infrastructure applications.
The OpenEAI Project is an open source Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) initiative that collaboratively develops standards-based integration technologies. The OpenEAI Project investigates and documents the controlling dynamics, principles and practices of enterprise application integration and presents, implements and promotes these findings. The OpenEAI Project presents findings in the form of the OpenEAI integration methodology and OpenEAI integration software and documentation. Java and XML are native to OpenEAI; many non-Java technologies can also be exposed or made message-aware using OpenEAI concepts and foundational APIs.
The OpenEAI Project is characterized by:
- collaborative research and development
- clear understanding and documentation of the principles of EAI
- creation of high-quality software that leads the way in the field
- open software licenses that allow embedding OpenEAI software in proprietary products
The OpenEAI Project is comprised of six distinct, closely-related departments, which address OpenEAI methodology, application foundation APIs, message object APIs, message definitions, reference implementations, and deployment and administration.
On the OpenEAI web site, interested parties can subscribe to an OpenEAI e-mail announcements list and find out more about becoming involved with the project and its departments.
The OpenEAI Software Foundation, an Illinois not-for-profit corporation, guides the OpenEAI Project, and provides organizational, legal and financial support to the project. Foundation members are individuals who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to the OpenEAI Project and made significant contributions in the form of EAI research and open source software development.
