A consortium of technology companies announced the creation of the Open Mashup Alliance, an organization dedicated to the successful use of Enterprise Mashup technologies and adoption of an open language that promotes Enterprise Mashup interoperability and portability.
The Open Mashup Alliance (OMA) founding members includes software vendors, consulting companies, technology service providers and industry representatives that share a common interest in promoting the open, free-to-use Enterprise Mashup Markup Language (EMML) for the development, interoperability and compatibility of Enterprise Mashup offerings. The charter members of the OMA include Adobe, Bank of America, Capgemini, Hinchcliffe & Company, HP, Intel, JackBe, Kapow Technologies, ProgrammableWeb, Synteractive, and Xignite.
The EMML specification will be governed under the Creative Commons License and supported by a free-to-use EMML reference runtime engine. The Open Mashup Alliance will steward and enhance the EMML v1.0 specification for future contribution to a standards body.
"We are very excited to be a founding member of Open Mashup Alliance and to foster mashup interoperability and portability through an open language. EMML was designed specifically to address the needs of Enterprise Mashup developers. We are proud to contribute this industry-proven language to the mashup community," said Deepak Alur, Vice President of Engineering at JackBe and co-author of "Core J2EE Patterns."
Membership in the Open Mashup Alliance is open to all organizations or individuals with an interest in the advancement of EMML and Enterprise Mashup interoperability and compatibility.
