  2. This is an exercise in Interoperability Flak-catching, while Microsoft continues to fall grieviously short on the major issues

    Hello Jacques,

    Thank you for commenting, I do not agree that project Tango or the Web Services initiatives and standards that Microsoft is leading and/or participating in can be written off as Flak-catching. The overwhelming majority of the Java One attendees were very interested and appreciative of the efforts being made by Sun and Microsoft as well as other vendors to improve interoperability between technologies.

    I spent the last ten years of my life architecting large and complex Java based solutions and am also very aware of the interoperability issues that exsist within implementations by various Java vendors and even within the implementation by the same vendor, however, I am optimistic about the interop developments in the last few years and and believe that the industry has turned a corner in terms of interoperability between .NET and Java and in terms of interoperability between Java implementations by various vendors. In my humble opinion project Tango is an important initiative in a growing movement towards imporved inter-op

    Best regards,


  4. Hi Mohammad,

    Thanks for the invite to your June 8th MSN/Java event, I’ve passed it on to our development team.  

    I’d also like to introduce ourselves to your readers, we’re looking for ways to encourage participation in our project and perhaps they’ll have ideas.  

    The CAISI Project was founded in response to the critical community issue of chronic homelessness, and to create new ways to combat the problems with current solutions. Working with homeless clients, agencies, shelters, hospitals and other advocates, the CAISI open source system is used to integrate and enhance care, and prevent people who are homeless from slipping through cracks in the system caused by incompatible databases.

    Building on the Ministry of Health approved OSCAR platform ensures security and privacy, while further enabling clients to control access to their records by other agencies. With current funding we provide the software for free or at cost to our partners in Southern Ontario, and eventually hope to see independent versions of CAISI in use across Canada and around the World.

    For those interested in open source development, the biggest challenge will be the integrator that connects various groups. Previous failed attempts were turnkey solutions that tried to force unwilling parties to accomodate, and ignored many factors involved. That’s why CAISI has a release early and often approach, and the steady stream of feedback from clients and the community helps create regular point-releases. Various independent modules are always in need of work, and new ideas are welcome.

    Please see our "How Can I Get Involved?" page at:”>

    While everyone is invited to contribute in any way they can, web-designers and developers who know Java (J2EE), Spring, Hibernate, Struts, Ant, Eclipse and MySQL are the most needed at the moment. If you have any suggestions or want to use the software please contact us, we look forward to hearing from you.

    Best regards,
