I hear this alot, "I can't believe this is open source." by billm

It happened again today.   Someone said to me, "I cannot believe this software is open source.  This XAware software is just a powerful as software for which IBM, Oracle, Tibco and the like charge $50,000 plus per processor.  XAware gives it away under the open source GPLv2 license.  Hard to believe." 

 Believe it.  You can use the most powerful composite data services middleware for free under the GPLv2 license.  For a small fraction of what the others charge for a license, you can buy support, a commercial license, and/or enterprise class certification and mangement. 

Frankly, we can't believe that IBM, Oracle, Tibco and the like charge so much for their software that most of the potential users who need it are forced to write their own code our use much less capable software.  With more than 120,000 downloads of XAware software so far, we know that there are a lot of happy users out there who appreciate what we are doing to make the most powerful composite data services middleware easier to get and use.  Our mission is to become the world's most popular way to connect data with applications, so we will keep doing it.  If you appreciate such easy access to such powerful software, jump in and help, see "How to Contribute to the Project ".
