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
implementation as J2EE compliant. This is an ambitious goal and will
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
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
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
making it possible to achieve certification. In addition, our flexible
unrestrictive licensing makes it possible for a wide variety of
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 out more about this project or if you would like to become

    On behalf of the Apache Geronimo Team,

    Greg Stein,
    Chairman of the Apache Software Foundation
