The Bits are Over the Wall!

I am excited to announce that we have shipped the early access release of the ActiveGrid Grid Application Server and ActiveGrid Application Builder, which are shipping under the Apache 2 license. It took almost two years to get here, and we feel that the early access is a solid foundation on which we can evolve ActiveGrid's technology. The early access release is focused on the development and deployment of basic database-oriented web applications. We will be shipping regular releases through our 1.0 release which is targeted for the June/July timeframe. The 1.0 release will include CSS style editors, DHTML and JavaScript support, a full BPEL editor, and full web services integration.

We have made a concerted effort to ensure that (at least on Windows) downloading the ActiveGrid Application Builder and getting started is a simple and painless experience. It should take no more than 15 minutes to install the Application Builder, run the included demos and start building applications that tie into your existing backends.
