CA takes Ingres out in the 'open'

Computer Associates International has made a major commitment to open-source software development. It plans to 'open' its Ingres database and has outlined partnerships with other open-source projects.

CA will now make the source code for its Ingres database on Linux available for download. The company will also offer an open-source license called the CA Trusted Open Source License (CA-TOSL). The new license, which CA expects will gain certification from the Open Source Initiative, will provide the legal protections demanded by corporate customers.

The company also outlined plans to collaborate with existing open-source projects and the software they create, including Java server software from Jboss, the Zope Web content management system, and thePlone document management software.

The open-source version of Ingres on Linux will join a number of other open-source databases now available, like MySQL and PostgreSQL.
