ObjectsOnClouds.org – An Open Source Project Initiative

The ObjectsOnClouds Open Source Project Initiative (ObjectsOnClouds Project) is a worldwide collaborative effort to develop a set of technologies interworking together as a cloud computing platform. The ObjectsOnClouds Cloud Applications Computing Platform (ObjectsOnClouds Platform) consists of a Java-based server component (The Ionosphere Server), IDEs for building cloud applications (Aurora), platform-native desktop cloud application clients (Gravity), as well as AJAX/web-based cloud applications.

Highlights of some of the select features the ObjectsOnClouds Platform are – real-time multi-user collaborative multi-language content editing, version control with instant push notifications upon content changes, fine-grained permission control for secure access to contents, and much more.

The ObjectsOnClouds Platform is also a complete cloud applications development environment. It features many innovative ideas including a free-form “natural” database which abstracts the complexity of traditional relationship databases. This allows even non-technical people to easily create the next generation of cloud applications very quickly and easily.

The Ionosphere Server – Java-based server component
The Ionoshephere Server is a Java EE/GlassFish-based server component that is central to the ObjectsOnClouds Platform. The RESTful-based Web Services API is built-in for fully connected cloud computing with both the platform-native desktop clients and AJAX/web clients. A Web Server API is also included to serve validated HTML pages for deploying dynamic websites that are fully optimized for search engines.

Aurora for Mac and Windows – IDEs for building cloud applications Aurora is an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for building cloud applications. As a native application for Mac and Windows, Aurora is designed to take advantage of the platform’s speed and efficiency.

Gravity for Mac, Windows and iPhone – the platform-native clients for cloud applications
Gravity is a technology which allows developers to create platform-native applications – for Mac, Windows and iPhone – all without programming! Cloud developers use Aurora to specify the application elements – menus, windows, content display areas, etc. – and Gravity connects to the cloud to load, assemble and launch the live cloud application as a native platform application. This gives users more choices for cloud computing and even has the potential to make AJAX/web technologies irrelevant.

AJAX/web-based cloud applications IDEs and clients
Advanced AJAX/web programming tools and libraries, web browser-based cloud applications can take advantage of the innovative features that the ObjectsOnClouds Platform has to offer.

Anyone – worldwide – can Join and Participate in this Exciting Project!
The ObjectsOnClouds Project is looking for both professionals and students who have the skills and dedication to open source software development to become involved in creating the next cloud applications platform. Developer membership is free and volunteers can gain worldwide recognition in the forefront of the cloud computing revolution. If you possess skills in project management or have development expertise in Java EE, AJAX, GWT, Mac (including iPhone; using Objective-C and the Cocoa framework) or Windows (using C# and .NET framework), we invite you to become part of this exciting project!

About the ObjectsOnClouds Project
The ObjectsOnClouds Project is an open source initiative to create a set of technologies interworking together as a cloud computing platform. The computing industry is in an exciting revolution moving f r o m desktop-based computing where data are stored on the local computer’s hard drive, to cloud computing where all data and contents are stored on cloud servers. The ObjectsOnClouds Project aims to accelerate this revolution by delivering a complete cloud applications development and computing platform. For more information, please visit the ObjectOnClouds.org website.

Zimplit Enables You To Create Professional Websites, Without Being A Web Developer Or Hiring One

Zimplit.org has released Zimplit, an Open Source web-based content management system (CMS) that drastically changes the way people create and manage their websites. Unlike other CMS applications that require advanced technical skills, Zimplit enables you to create professional websites, without being a web developer or hiring one.

There are three main reasons that make Zimplit very different from available competitors.

First of all, editing your website is extremely easy, thanks to our “On-site” editor. When you use a normal CMS, you edit your website from the admin area, where you cannot see the real results of the webpage. With Zimplit, the user is on the website like an ordinary visitor, except that on every editable page, user has a small toolbar which makes possible creating pages, changing texts, adding pictures, galleries and videos.

Secondly, you can use any css/html template (design) you wish. Zimplit uses HTML pages as templates and this gives user an opportunity to use thousands of free templates or to choose thousands from design banks.

Thirdly, the installation of Zimplit is easy. Unlike other Content Management Systems, you do not need to install Zimplit. You just have to upload the software on your Internet Service Provider’s (ISP’s) web server and it’s working.

Zimplit is flexible enough to be used by anyone who wants to build a website. Many entrepreneurs are reluctant to create websites because they believe that site creation and maintenance require a lot of knowledge and effort. With Zimplit, business people can create a professionally designed, multiple-page websites. Teachers can encourage their students to create personal websites and home users can create family websites in minutes.

Zimplit is currently in beta testing, with new functionality being added every day. Later this year, the software will include the ability to add HTML tables, forms, and online gadgets. In addition, Zimplit will provide a hosted version of its CMS, allowing users to run their websites from Zimplit’s web servers.

Zimplit is available without charge for home and business use. Business owners who wish to eliminate the online display of the Zimplit legal notices can get a lifetime Zimplit license for $49(US). For more information, or to sign up for an account, visithttp://www.zimplit.org.

About Zimplit:
Zimplit is the creation of Krabi & Mask, one of the oldest design agencies in Estonia. Since 1998, Krabi & Mask has been offering web solutions, print design, and digital media solutions for European businesses.
