Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Apache OpenMeetings incubator for Web Conferencing
Date Wed, 28 Oct 2009 07:11:38 GMT
Hello Paul,
Thanks for a good question!

Openmeetings is red5 application which is very close to ordinary web
application. AFAIU, the last change by Sebastian makes them even
closer by implementing ".war" deployment. The code of the projects
does not overlap in any way, and projects are connected via dynamic
linking. AFAIK, dynamic linking of separate modules is permitted by

Digging this deeper, most dynamic linking is with a web server (i.e.
Tomcat or Jetty) embedded into Red5, which is Apache licensed. To the
best of my knowledge openmeetings communicate with a media server
mostly using sockets, so some distribution re-packs may eliminate even
dynamic linking.
