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
