Orbeon at ObjectWebCon 06

We are glad to announce that we will be present at ObjectWebCon 06, the 5th edition of the ObjectWeb annual conference, which takes place in Paris from January 31 to February 2, 2006.

This edition will feature several parallel tracks: "Using Open Source Middleware for...", "In the business of Open Source Middleware...", and "Focus on ObjectWeb projects". All the details are available here. We are looking forward to meeting you in Paris!


  1. Last ObjectWeb conference was a good place to meet you, Erik. I hope you will present OPS in some sessions as OPS fits well into the landscape. The match is better and better everyday (e.g. since yesterday, Firefox 1.5 is out, and the XForms extension, even if not already final, is said to work rather well). I have blogued a little about it (

  2. Same here, it was nice to meet you! We have submitted a proposal, but there is always competition for presentations so we will see. We plan to talk mainly about the incredible role XForms can play for the presentation layer in service-oriented architectures.

  3. Erik, what you have written about XForms let me think about OPS potential as a RAD/high-level tool for building surveys. Look this survey questionnaire ( linked into the JOnAS page ( Zoomerang ( is providing survey softwares and even hosting capabilities. So far, I dont think full OPS potential has been achieved. The best is still to come :-)
    What do you think about this OPS use ?

  4. I think that could be a quite good idea. In fact, many users or potential usres are looking into tools to automatically generate user interfaces for forms such as insurance or healthcare forms. Also with XForms, building a UI to build such surveys should not be too difficult!
