2001-02-07 Today, the members of "Res Medicinae" agreed upon joining their efforts with the "OpenEMed" developers. Both projects were following quite similar aims in that they want to develop many CORBAmed modules, mainly using Java, to create a prototype useable in practice within one to two years (2002/2003).
Also, the GEHR kernel as another standard will possibly be implemented. Another aim is to strongly work together with related projects such as OIO/ FreePM/ LittleFish and Tkfp who want to provide CORBAmed interfaces as well.
Please check for further details!
2001-01-25 Interested people who would like to contribute to the project, can sign our mailing list to be always up to date.
