Forget Sun and Google - say hello to Open Document Fellowship

While the press goes back and forth over whether Google and Sun will go beyond making the “Google Toolbar an option in Sun's consumer downloads of the Java Runtime Environment” and the meaning of the “commitment” between the two companies to “explore opportunities to promote and enhance Sun technologies, like the Java Runtime Environment and … OpenOffice.org,” a group of open source community members have formed an organization to promote the functionality that has the potential to make a standard of the Open Document file format upon which OpenOffice.org is based. The organization, called the Open Document Fellowship, aims to provide a coherent understanding of the role that “clean” XML plays in enabling service-oriented architectures, which is basically a way to enable disparate computer systems to exchange data seamlessly through a common functional layer.

Open source for the enterprise, part 2

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Oct 12, 2005 7:30 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
Continuing where we left off yesterday -- careful assessment of integration and customization costs in many ways is the key to avoiding an open source nightmare. Unlike commercial products, open source projects are not usually created with the modern IT infrastructure environment in mind. Integration with single sign-on or support for monitoring protocols such as SNMP might not exist. Support for databases might be narrow and limited to a few choices or to one database. Support for standards might be lacking.

Linux: Error Detection and Correction

Alan Cox [interview] submitted a pair of patches to add error detection and correction (EDAC) logic to the 2.6 kernel. He noted, "I don't think its yet merge ready but getting there so I'd appreciate other folks comments and views on what else needs fixing before generating a submission for Andrew." Alan has submitted a subset of thebluesmoke kernel module which "is mainly concerned with reporting ECC, PCI, machine check, cache, hypertransport, thermal throttling and related events." This version of the patch is only for the 2.6 kernel, and was renamed from bluesmoke to EDAC.

Memory error checking used to be accomplised with a parity checking bit that was attached to each byte of memory. The parity bit was calculated when each byte of memory was written, and then verified when each byte of memory was read. If the stored parity bit didn't match the calculated parity bit on a read, that byte of memory was known to have changed. Parity checking was a reasonably effective method for detecting a one bit change in a byte of memory. ECC expanded upon this idea with the use of a hashing algorithm that calculates a checksum for multiple bytes of memory. This checksum can be used to detect when one or more bits has changed. On single bit errors, it can also restore the memory to its intended state, actually correcting the error.
