Project Beehive

This article was originally published in VSJ, which is now part of Developer Fusion.
BEA and Apache Software Foundation have announced the acceptance of Project Beehive as an open-source project in the Apache community. Based on the runtime application framework in BEA WebLogic Workshop, Apache Beehive is intended to be the industry’s first, easy-to-use, open source foundation for building enterprise Java and service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications. It builds on a number of Apache projects with which BEA has had either direct or indirect involvement, such as XMLBeans, Tomcat, Struts, and Axis.

Beehive will be based on technology from WebLogic Workshop, including Java annotations, Java Controls, Java Web services and Java Page Flows. Project Beehive also uses WebLogic Workshop’s Controls, reusable meta-data driven software components based on drag-and-drop technology that can integrate into BEA and other software platforms.

Beehive should be available this summer for free under the Apache 2.0 licence.
