"OpenAvenue, the leading Open-Source Service Provider (OSP) and multi-platform collaborative development hosting site, announced today its support for Sun Microsystems' Forte for Java Portal. Developers will be able to use the Forte for Java development environment within OpenAvenue's OAsis (OpenAvenue Source Infrastructure System), an integrated tool set for Web-based collaborative development. This integration will provide key add-on capability for users of Forte for Java who desire to work effectively via the Web on collaborative development projects, and provide a large community of open source developers easy access to the technology for use on projects hosted on OAsis at OpenAvenue.com. OpenAvenue will also redistribute the binary code for Forte for Java Community Edition, to registered users from OpenAvenue's Web site."

"In addition, OpenAvenue's CodeCatalog, a unique search engine for indexing and browsing open source code, has been integrated with the Forte for Java IDE, allowing users to access the tool's intelligent indexing capability as a menu item from within the IDE."

"Collaborative development teams will be able to use this powerful search engine technology to index their own components built using Forte for Java, in order to facilitate code reuse and sharing," said Bill Guilmart, OpenAvenue's executive vice president, Global Collaboration. "The add-in code implementing this integration has, itself, been open sourced for the benefit of the community, and is hosted as a project at OpenAvenue.com." The NetBeans(TM) source code (on which the Forte for Java product is based) will also be indexed within CodeCatalog, and be cross-referenced against other popular open source projects. OpenAvenue's participation in this framework extension program showcases the open source foundation of the Forte for Java Portal."
