ObjectWeb is an European initiative to promote high quality open source middleware. The vision of ObjectWeb is that of a set of components which can be assembled to offer high quality. We are member of this consortium, and Fractal Explorer, GoTM, JAC, and OpenCCM are projects hosted by the consortium.
OSMOSE stands for 'Open Source Middleware for Open Systems in Europe'. It is an ITEA project. The project groups 16 European industrials and 7 public labs. The goal is to give up an European dimension for the ObjectWeb consortium. The OSMOSE project wants to federate high quality components from European labs, and to produce applications for the great European industrial domains.
S4ALL ('Services-for-All') is an ITEA project whose partners are Alcatel CIT, Bull, Capricode, Fraunhofer Fokus, HIIT, INRIA, Instituto de Telecomunicaçoes, INT, mCENTRIC, Nokia, PT Inovaçao, Schneider Electric, Thales, Université Joseph Fourier, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, University of Kassel, Vodafone, and Xquark/Odonata. The main vision is to build ``A world of user-centric services that are easy to create, share and use''. Our contribution in this project is to design and build a model driven infrastructure to automatically deploy J2EE components, OSGi services, and Web services for building distributed applications.
AOSD-Europe is an ongoing proposal to set up a Network of Excellence (NoE) on aspect-oriented software development within IST-FP6. The proposal brings together 11 research groups and among them members of the Jacquard project and other members from OBASCO, Pop-Art and Triskell INRIA projects. The proposal is led by Lancaster University, Darmstadt University and University of Twente. The goal of the NoE is to harmonise, integrate and strengthen European research activities on all issues related to aspect orientation: analysis, design, development, formalization, applications, empirical studies.
