ObjectWeb Architecture meeting -- Day 3

Pr Wang presented Orientware, a consortium of Chinese companies who work on middleware development. Orientware middleware, which is not open source, relie on open standards (OMG, W3C, JCP). Their solutions include J2EE AS, portal, CCM, SOAP engine. Main contributors include Beihang university, Chinese academy of Science. Dr Bin Zhou presented a CORBA based WS engine. The presented mechanism (StarWebService) basically offers a way to expose objects in a CORBA domain as web services. It is an extension to Axis 1.0. They are university member of OMG, and also got involved in the open source movement one year ago (www.starmiddleware.net).

I missed a presentation from representatives of Unifor.
