Multilingual Open source Applications and the Spring Framework
Portal in Corporate America. Recently, I have been spending time with EJBCA which is a 100% open source certificate authority platform built on J2EE. For enterprises that need to establish an internal PKI infrastructure, this is more than worthy of attention from enterprise architects.
I have found that any time I blog on the evils of outsourcing, folks from India come out of the woodwork. Hopefully, instead of throwing daggers, I may persuade one or two of them to consider joining both Liferay and EJBCA as both projects are in need of additional language support. If you can write Arabic (I can speak but not yet write), Tamil, Hindi, Tagalog, Farsi, Hebrew or Portuguese, they could use your assistance.
Maybe developers from Wipro, Cognizant, Infosys or even Accenture would volunteer a couple of hours to help in this goal? Likewise, if you happen to have knowledge of the Spring Framework and wouldn't mind contributing time such that EJBCA can work without EJBs, then you will definetely be doing the world a great service...
