Fudge Messaging: A new open source encoding for messaging

,----[ Quote ]
| Kirk Wylie and the OpenGamma team have 
| announced the Fudge Messaging Project, an 
| open source message encoding protocol. 
| Fudge (Fast Unstructured Data Generic 
| Encoding) is designed to be a self-
| describing, type-safe, binary hierarchical 
| encoding suitable for use in messaging 
| layers in middleware. The project is in its 
| early days, but already has Java and C# 
| reference implementations. The Java 
| implementation is in daily use at OpenGamma 
| and is, according to Wylie, "rock-solid in 
| stability and very good in performance". 
| What is still to come is "polished 
| releases" says Wylie, but the developers 
| wanted to get the code out as soon as they 
| reasonably could.
