eXo and JBoss combine portal technologies
A strategic partnership between Red Hat and eXo, the French open source developer, aims to create a new open source portal solution within the JBoss community, the JBoss Community Portal. The project will be jointly lead by eXo and Red Hat, with the eXo Portal being moved to JBoss.org for community development and combined with the JBoss Portal. eXo has also contributed eXo JCR, a robust and cluster ready version of a JSR 170 compliant Java Content Repository.
Red Hat's JBoss division will concentrate, within the project, on the supporting infrastructure and container performance, and also work on security and rich application integration. eXo plans to bring their expertise in user interface and administrative functions to the project. The new project will be licensed under the GNU LGPL which will, according to eXo, "encourage broader adoption", while eXo's other products will remain under the Affero GPL (AGPL).
