Early last year, I blogged about why I thought JSR 286 was irrelevant. I also speculated that what makes sense was an enterprise version of OpenSocial, which I called OpenEnterprise.
Today, I am pretty surprised to see that OpenSocial is indeed moving in that direction. Opensocial.org has published a whitepaper titled "Enterprise OpenSocial". I am yet to read the whitepaper, but this seems to be very similar to what I had in mind when I wrote my previous post.
Does this means that we'll finally get to see a decent component platform for enterprise portals ? Of course, OpenSocial is far from being perfect. They still have a lot of technical as well as non-technical issues to fix (I'll take that up in a future blog post). But it's probably better then JSRs that take years to materialize. What I find most interesting is that this spec will extend way beyond the Java world, much like what the Facebook and OpenSocial platforms are today.
Have you read the whitepaper ? What's your take on Enterprise OpenSocial ? What next - Enterprise Facebook :-) ?
