Quick thoughts on the StreamBase Component Exchange

Streambase is announcing something called the StreamBase Component Exchange, for developers to exchange components to be used with the StreamBase engine, presumably on an open source basis. I simultaneously think:

For reasons why, let me quote an email I just sent to an inquiring reporter:

    Who is going to indemnify downloading firms against negligence and intellectual property issues?

    Downloading firms would, I imagine, be ones that commonly use lots of other open source software, so I fail to see how this is different from a problem they’ve already overcome.

    These are good points. There is a lot of use of open source software in our core customer base, and StreamBase itself benefits from leveraging open source. And in our experience, contributing to projects pays off in both improved relationships with core developers and in better software.

    Contributing back is something that individual developers are often excited about, but for which many organizations don’t yet have patterns and processes. One of the goals of the component exchange is to facilitate these contributions by StreamBase developers, to help them work through logistical and organizational concerns.

    It’s a tall order, but like many controversial concepts StreamBase has advocated in the capital markets (visual programming, agile development, unit testing) I think the time is right. Use of and contribution to community provided components can be a helpful part of any development project.

    In addition to the samples shipped with TIBCO StreamBase, you can install and run components from the TIBCO StreamBase Component Exchange. The Component Exchange is an online repository of StreamBase applications, libraries, and utilities, created by StreamBase users and members of the TIBCO StreamBase team, made freely available to all users of TIBCO StreamBase.
