The OpenESB community was originally founded by the users of OpenESB, Glassfish ESB and Java CAPS. The community’s objectives are mainly to support and improve OpenESB and set it up for new features and platforms. The community provides a complete stack of services for OpenESB. Any company who wants to start with OpenESB will find professional and skilled partners in the community.
The first community event took place in Brussels in October 2010. At that time, Sun Microsystems which designed and developed the first OpenESB versions had just merged with Oracle. For understandable reasons, Oracle decided not to support the OpenESB project as Sun Microsystems did. Very quickly after this decision, OpenESB teams were spread out and OpenESB knowledge, code and skill were close to disappear. At Brussels, we decided to create a community, save OpenESB’s code and fork it on new servers. Five years later, the community members are involved and reliable. India, Russia, EU and US are the main development centres around the world. Since Sun Microsystems does not exist anymore, our community is not ruled by one creator, company or shareholder but it is more of a collaborative community where active members make the decisions. If you want to influence on OpenESB future and Community organization, you have to be active and demonstrate your ability to improve OpenESB features and behavior or/and promote community works.
