The Apache Software Foundation recently announced that Apache Olingo has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become a Top-Level Project, thus signifying that the project’s community and products have been well-governed under the ASF’s meritocratic process and principles.
Apache Olingo serves client and server aspects of OData 2.0, and will serve as a code base for OData 4.0, the OASIS standard of the protocol (OASIS OData TC). It is used by browser-based user interfaces to query data residing on servers. It is also used to synchronize data to mobile devices, and exchange data between server systems, and is part of the technical foundation of SAP NetWeaver Gateway technology, among other enterprise solutions.
Apache Olingo software is released under the Apache License v2.0, and is overseen by a self-selected team of active contributors to the project. A Project Management Committee (PMC) guides the Project’s day-to-day operations, including community development and product releases.
