A CORBA Server.

This proposal outlines the creation of a Geronimo sub-project within the Apache Software Foundation.


The current Apache Geronimo project ( is in great need of a CORBA
ORB that is not tied into a particular vendor's JVM and version.

This proposal is to build a compliant OMG CORBA server.

A set of leading vendors in this space are joining together to contribute code and developer
resources for this project. We expect it to be a major success.


IONA and TriFork will contribute core pieces of the source.

The developer community will take that code as input and produce the best possible CORBA server.

== Orphaned products: ==

The CORBA Server will be a part of Geronimo and under heavy active development.

== Inexperience with open source: ==

Many of the current committers have experience working with open source projects and communities
and the leaders of this project are long time ASF contributors. We do not expect any difficulty
in executing under normal meritocracy rules.

== Homogenous developers: ==

There are developers from various companies: Chutnoon, IBM, IONA, LogicBlaze, TriFork, and
Simula Labs.

== No ties to other Apache products: ==

The CORBA server intends to be a sub-project of Geronimo.  Other Apache projects such as Harmony
could also use the ORB.

== A fascination with the Apache brand: ==

A CORBA ORB that is not tied to a particular vendor's JVM is critical for the Geronimo project.

The contributors are leading vendors in this space. There is no risk of any of the usual warning
signs of orphaned or abandoned code.
