> As you may have heard by now, the Apache Software Foundation has initiated a
> project to develop an open source, Apache-licensed implementation of the
> J2EE specification. In addition, the project is committed to certifying the
> implementation as J2EE compliant. This is an ambitious goal and will present
> a formidable challenge for the people involved, given the wide range of
> technologies covered by the specification.
> The project (tentatively named "Apache Geronimo") builds upon the many Java
> projects at the Apache Software Foundation. In addition, the project is
> bringing together leading members of the Castor, JBoss, MX4J and OpenEJB
> communities. We would like to extend an open invitation to everyone involved
> in the J2EE space, both commercial entities and talented individuals, to
> join the community and build a world-class J2EE implementation.
> The Apache Software Foundation is in a unique position to build a J2EE
> compliant platform. Our non-profit, charity status, and our relationship
> with Sun Microsystems, provides the Foundation with access to the J2EE TCKs,
> making it possible to achieve certification. In addition, our flexible and
> unrestrictive licensing makes it possible for a wide variety of participants
> to assist in the development of Apache Geronimo, and to build their own
> solutions upon the platform.
> Apache Geronimo has been launched within the Apache Incubator. You can find
> more information about the Incubator at To
