IBM, Cisco, and OSGi

Quite a week for OSGi! IBM and Cisco just announced a platform based on OSGi known as the "unified communications and collaboration Client Platform ", although UC2 (or should that be UC²?) is less of a mouthful.

There were some hints inside IBM earlier this week that some interesting OSGi news was about to break, but I had no idea what it was.

UC2 is based on a subset of the Lotus Sametime 7.5 product that is popular for instant messaging (at least inside IBM). It aims to handle IM, voice, and video.

All of UC^2 is really built on top of Lotus Expeditor, the foundation for Sametime, Notes... etc...

Thanks Chris. To be honest, I wasn't sure whether Expeditor was just an internal codename. After seeing your comment, I found an official description.

As for planet eclipse, please sindicate away! :-)
