Under the terms of a deal signed with Orientware, a Chinese software group formed to commercialize middleware components developed by China’s High-Tech R&D Program (HTRDP), a government-driven initiative run by China’s Ministry of Science and Technology.
Orientware is now expected to release some of its middleware components as open-source code.
ObjectWeb is a non-profit open source organization was formed in 2002 by France Telecom, Groupe Bull and France’s National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control (INRIA). It has 50 members who are collaborating on several dozen open source projects.
Earlier last week ObjectWeb announced it is adding business intelligence to its growing middleware stack through one of its members’ Spago J2EE framework.
