Oracle Enterprise Business Objects Contributed to OAGi 

We are very pleased to announce that Oracle has contributed their Enterprise Business Objects (EBOs) and associated IP to OAGi!

The Oracle EBOs are based on OAGIS BODs from a past release and no longer supported by Oracle so they contributed them to us to harmonize with the current version of OAGIS and preserve a technology path for EBO customers.

This also gives OAGi an opportunity to further improve OAGIS content and scope.

I take this as proof of Oracle's commitment to Open Standards and plan to say so in a press release.  I personally thank Oracle for this commitment.

Scott Nieman of Land O'Lakes will be presenting his Project Definition to begin the process of harmonization on Friday, June 3, at 11 AM EDT at the Next meeting which, as members, you are all invited. Please let me know if you don't have an invitation and I will forward it to you.

Please join me in thanking Oracle and also please try to engage in our harmonization process to improve OAGIS.
