Emersion Platform Project
Welcome to the Emersion Platform project. Emersion is an Open Source (LGPL) Java based integrated platform to run server-side applications (web sites, but not only :).
The project aim is to create universal integrated platform to "host, run and service" components as part of a single server-side background application.
The idea is inspired by Eclipse Platform as a Development Tools Integration Platform. Similar, Emersion is "the same" but for server applications integration. The Platform is organized as a set of plug-ins (like Eclipse). Several plug-ins form "Platform core" and are quite general purpose. Some plug-ins provide "standard services" for other, "application level" plug-ins. Using those "base" plug-ins makes possible to develop and deploy web sites, web services and other server-side software in very short time. Platform architecture designed to be highly extensible but consistent and easy maintainable.
The background plug-ins infrastructure is provided by Java Plug-in Framework (JPF) - Open Source library to build highly modular applications.
Currently the Platform is in the "base architecture design" and "alpha development" stage. It's source code is available from project CVS.
