I wanted to make the W3C community aware of the recently announced Open
Integration Suite project, an  open source (LGPL) effort chartered to
build and maintain enterprise-grade Web development and integration
software using XML technologies. Orbeon Inc is a W3C member.

The project is being sponsored by Orbeon Inc. through a contribution of
the OXF XML Server product line -- you can get more information from the

http://www.orbeon.com/company/pr-oss-announcement or on

Given this group's strong interest in XForms, I thought I would share
this exciting news. The Orbeon Presentation Server (part of OIS and
formerly known as OXF) is a strong server-side XForms implementation.
All free and open source now!

Best regards,


P.S.> Here's the highlight:

The Open Integration Suite (OIS) is an open source project (LGPL) with a
charter to develop and maintain enterprise-grade  integration software.
The OIS is a modular suite where each component can be used
independently or in conjunction with other suite components.  The OIS
consists of the following five components:

     * Presentation Server (formerly OXF) is a J2EE-based MVC framework
for building web applications that present and capture XML using XForms,
XSLT, and Web Services.
     * XML Server to provide performant, pipeline-based XML processing
using XPL, XSLT, XQuery, and XPath.
     * BPEL Server to orchestrate long-running processes using Web
Services and BPEL (in partnership with other open source projects).
     * ESB to provide a connection back-bone for routing information
between loosely coupled services (in partnership with other open source
     * Studio is an Eclipse plugin for Presentation Server developers
building composite web applications.

The project is hosted on Sourceforge at http://orbeon.sourceforge.net
