(Internal-) Open Source in large (or any size) organisations
March 30, 2007
JPMorgan has an (Eclipse-based) RCP application called OneBench that won the Best Deployment of Eclipse technology in an enterprise Eclipse community award recently. What is really interesting is the fact that they have the development of OneBench set up as an Internal Open Source project, with wiki’s, forums and instant messaging. I was not at Jey Burrows talk, so it’s not clear to me whether they have a committer / contributor separation. Either way, it is another good example of how Open Source best practices are becoming the norm in software development, irrespective of where it takes place.
