ercato (en)

ercato is an on-going effort for a better XML-based solution for thing-oriented programming including object-oriented programming. ercato is different from a framework as it does propose its own programming model which goes beyond pure object-oriented modelling and is more effective than J2EE's EJB model.

ercatoJ has been derived as a product from this project. Version 1.1 of 2003, October 1 is the first publicely available release. The previous version 1.0 has been in use with great success at Henkel KGaA, Düsseldorf and at selected partner sites.

ercato (de)

ercato ist ein laufendes Projekt zur Schaffung eines besseren Programmieransatzes, welcher das dingorientierte und objektorientierte Programmieren direkt auf der XML-Ebene ermöglicht. Im Unterschied zu Frameworks stellt ercato ein eigenes Programmiermodell zur Verfügung, welches zudem effektiver und mächtiger ist als das der EJBs von J2EE.

ercatoJ ist als Produkt aus dem ercato-Projekt abgeleitet und seit 1.10.2003 in der Version 1.1 allgemein verfügbar. Zuvor wurde die Version 1.0 mit großem Erfolg bei Henkel in Düsseldorf und von ausgewählten Partnern eingesetzt.


Further information

We believe that no middleware project in general, and no J2EE project in particular should proceed without taking the options offered by ercato into account. However, access to information has been very restricted in the past. This situation is now improving rapidly.

The following information material is available online (please, check the download area, too):
