The Linux Foundation has announced a number of one-year project milestones for the OpenMAMA project that include important new code contributions, a fully open source software stack and the first commercial offering to result from the project.
OpenMAMA is an open source Middleware Agnostic Messaging API that provides an interface for passing data between high volume, low latency messaging applications.
The project was announced almost a year ago and it's part of the Linux Foundation Labs, which includes a lot of highprofile contributors such as Bank of America Merrill Lynch, IBM, EMC, Exegy, Fixnetix, J.P. Morgan and NYSE Technologies, just to name a few.
“The OpenMAMA project represents how collaborative development can advance technology innovation for an entire industry,” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation.
The OpenMAMA software stack has gone completely open source, including a specific API for market data called OpenMAMDA and language support for C, C++, Java, and .Net.
