Hi all,

I'd first like to congratulate on your project proposal. We saw it a few
days ago on the Eclipse website and believe it has great potential and
will hopefully attract a large community soon.

In your proposal, however, you write that you "are not aware of any
other efforts to build an open-source platform for constructing
financial applications". We therefore would like to call your attention
to the project JFire <http://jfire.org>, which is an open-source
platform for ERP applications. It comprises many financial aspects and
being a modular platform, there is plenty of room for creating
additional highly-specialised financial modules.

JFire overlaps with a lot of goals/visions stated in the OFMP:
* Both build on the Eclipse RCP.
* Componentization: Both platforms address the same issues.
* Both use BIRT as reporting engine.
* Many services & tools described in the "scope"
section already exist in JFire.

We believe it is worth considering to use JFire as basic platform
beneath the OFMP and a cooperation might save both projects a lot of
time. In order to introduce JFire in detail and discuss possible ways of
cooperation we'd like to take part in the OFMP symposium at Eclipse
Summit Europe.

Best regards,

Marco Schulze
JFire team
