June 2008 Newsletter
June 2008 Newsletter[OW2 Newsletter - June 2008 - From the OW2 Management Office] Dear OW2 Members, You want to follow what is going on at your favorite open source middleware consortium but, of course, like everyone, you do not always think of, nor feel like checking the OW2 home page (www.ow2.org). This is why we now offer instead to push news to you through this newsletter. Another newsletter ?!? The truth is that it was not entirely our idea but also a request from members themselves. This is information, not communication. No noise, no spam. We only want to keep you posted and keep it short. So without further ado, here they are: Projects updates and Community events. Cedric Thomas
