The Apache Software Foundation recently announced that Apache Stanbol is moving on up in the project status. Stanbol is an open source Java stack designed to interface with a content management system enhanced with semantic information.

This interesting information was found on The H Open blog in their post, “Apache Stanbol graduates to Top-Level Project.” The CMS adapter allows the system to connect to content management systems where it can extract data to use in evaluating and developing rules and annotations.

One of the greatest advantages in contributing to open source is the ability to collaborate with a diverse, enthusiastic community. Apache has achieved that as well.
