The OW2 Open Source Software Community Announces Best Project Awards 2012

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Paris, France (PRWEB) December 08, 2012 OW2, the global community for open source infrastructure software, announces the winners of the OW2 Best Project Awards 2012. Organized for the first time this year, the OW2 Best Project Awards recognize OW2 projects for their outstanding contribution in four categories: innovation, community development, market performance and the Technology Council Special Prize.

The winners of the first ever OW2 Best Project Awards are:    •  Innovation Award: Shelbie (award presented to Peergreen Co-Founder and Software Architect Guillaume Sauthier). OW2 Shelbie provides both an advanced programming model for building commands on top of Apache Felix Gogo and Apache Felix iPOJO and also a JLine based frontend. Shelbie innovates by allowing on-the-fly installation of commands at run-time, thereby enhancing the already modular and dynamlic OSGi platform.

   •  Community Award: EasyBeans (award presented to Peergreen Co-Founder and Software Architect Guillaume Sauthier). EasyBeans is an open source implementation by OW2 of the EJB3 container specification. It is embedded in the Java EE 5 certified OW2 JOnAS application server. This award recognizes outstanding representation of the OW2 spirit which consists in protecting, sharing and re-using the community code.

   •  Market Award: Bonita Open Solution (award presented to BonitaSoft Marketing Director Jeremy Lipp). Bonita Open Solution is an intuitive and powerful solution to build process based applications at optimum cost. BonitaSoft was recognized for the clarity of its strategy and the excellence of its execution which translated into the outstanding growth of its installed base of professional customers;    •  Technology Council Special Prize: ProActive-CLIF-Fractal integration (award presented to ActiveEon CEO Denis Caromel and Bruno Dillenseger, Engineer at Orange). The technology Council wanted to recognize the examplarity of the community and standardisation efforts deployed for the successful integration of these three projects.

“We are extremely proud of our Best Project Awards 2012 winners,” says OW2 CEO Cedric Thomas “Their achievements reflect the growing momentum of the OW2 open source software community,” he adds.

The OW2 Best Project Awards afford OW2 members, project leaders and their teams great recognition within the community as well as many opportunities in terms of visibility. The award ceremony took place at OW2con'12, the annual conference of the OW2 community, on 28 November, at Orange Labs' Innovation Garden, in Paris Issy-les-Moulineaux.

All projects were invited to compete for one of the four awards: Innovation Award, Community Award, Market Award and Technology Council Special Prize. The winners were selected by a jury of project leaders from the technology Council and members of the OW2 Management Office.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
