BSI to open source Scout framework
In May, Swiss company Business Systems Integration AG (BSI) will release its Scout business application framework to the open source community. A first look at the Scout project's source code will be available to attendees at this year's EclipseCon conference, taking place from the 22nd to the 25th of March, 2010 in Santa Clara, California.
The Scout framework is the foundation for a number of BSI's products, such as BSI CRM. It consists of an application model, a reference implementation, an SDK (Scout Development Toolkit) and a number of development tools. Its primary goal is to reduce development time for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) compliant business solutions.
According to Andreas Hoegger, Eclipse Scout project co-leader and System Architect for BSI, opening up the framework is the next logical step. During EclipseCon 2010, Hoegger and BSI project manager Matthias Zimmermann will present a two hour tutorial on Eclipse Scout.
BSI joined the Ecilpse Foundation in May of last year as an Eclipse Solutions Member. Eclipse Scout is currently at the project proposal status. The Scout source code to be released in May will be made publicly available under an Eclipse license.
