About OW2

Founded in January 2007 as a result of the merger of ObjectWeb and OrientWare communities, OW2 is an independent industry consortium dedicated to developing open source code middleware and to fostering a vibrant community and business ecosystem. Building on the legacy of ObjectWeb and OrientWare, OW2 federates more than one hundred organizations and 6000 IT Professionals in Europe, Asia and the Americas. OW2 hosts over one hundred technology Projects, including Acceleo, ASM, Bonita, eXo Platorm, Funambol, JOnAS, Lomboz, Orbeon Forms, PetALS, SpagoBI and XWiki. Several of these projects are combined into market-driven Initiatives, such as the ESB/SOA Initiative, and the Business Intelligence Initiative, which facilitate their implementations into business solutions by systems integrators, OEMs and end-users. A typical global open-source organization, OW2 aims to bring together grassroots communities across all continents through Local Chapters (Europe, China and Brazil).
