Sonic to Start an ESB Project at Apache

Gavin Clarke announced in the Register that Sonic will start an ESB project at Apache.

Over 1 year ago, ObjectWeb started an "ESB initiative" to foster the advent of open source ESB technologies. Some vendors, including Iona, joined this initiative. Iona announced Celtix in June.

Interestingly enough, ObjectWeb met Sonic in September 2004 to talk about the ESBi. Met David A. Chappell, who did not sound so convinced about open source at this time. Sonic did an interesting presentation at the ESBi launch event, in Paris. Jonathan Airey (Software AG) gave a presentation there too.

    How often are you changing the content of you original post? Why?

    Changing the content of my blog: whenever I feel so (it's my blog, isn't it?); also when I find typos, when I'm informed of inaccurate content, when I have extra time to add details, etc.

    Hi, Fran├žois,
    I don't want to seem to advertise for my blog, but maybe you and your readers could read what Iona has to say on this topic, here :
    Looking forward to meet you in Brussels.
