Subject: Invitation to participate in Apache J2EE efforts

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

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

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 find out more about this project or if
you would like to become involved, please send email to the incubator
mailing list:
