Matthias Fischer, who is writing the Ontopia/Liferay integration, did a presentation of his work at the internal BouvetOne conference here at Bouvet. The slides show what he’s doing in a bit more detail and also show some screenshots, which give a more in-depth impression of what this is going to look like.
We will follow up with more information once we have progressed a bit further.
Bouvet now offers commercial high-quality support on the Ontopia product following a new price model adapted to the open source license of the product. For the OKS support prices were a percentage of the license price, but as Ontopia licenses are free this model was clearly not going to work any more.
In the new support model there are three different levels of support, as described in the table below.
Note that “optimization” here is understood to mean help with performance issues. This is only available on the Platinum level, and is limited even there, simply because issues of this kind are generally time-consuming to deal with.
If you are interested in purchasing Ontopia support, please contact Lars Marius Garshol (user larsga, domain bouvet.no).
Baard H. Rehn Johansen and Stig Lau, both Bouvet employees, have joined the project as committers. Their main goal initially is to add Maven2 support, add Ontopia to be distributed via Maven repositories, and generally lower the bar for working with Ontopia for new developers.
