Welcome to Apache ESME  <>

Enterprise Social Messaging Experiment (ESME) is a secure and highly 
scalable microsharing and micromessaging platform that allows people to 
discover and meet one another and get controlled access to other sources 
of information, all in a business process context.   

Building ESME

Please note that ESME currently only works with JDK 1.6. We are hopeful
that JDK 1.5 will soon be supported.

You can build the ESME sources using the Maven 2 build system. Execute the
following command in the ESME source directory to build the sources and
to start the application via jetty:

    mvn jetty:run

See the Maven web site at for more instructions
and the latest Maven downloads.
