Aircraft Manufacturer Dassault Joins ObjectWeb

ObjectWeb writes "Dassault Aviation, leading civil/military aircraft manufacturer, joins ObjectWeb, a consortium producing advanced components for distributed software infrastructures.

Jacques Pellas, Dassault Aviation Senior Vice-President of the Information System Division: "an airplane has a typical lifecycle of several decades and for this reason, we need to build our information system on perennial software components. As an alternative to fast-evolving proprietary solutions, Open-Source software puts us in control of our level of dependency on the vendors' software and hardware products. By joining ObjectWeb, we will contribute to make Open-Source solutions, which often come from university origins, better comply to industrial requirements."
