The SCOPE Alliance published a new white paper “Mapping Java Platform Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and SAForum: A NEP Perspective” in support of SCOPE’s mission of enabling and promoting the availability and interoperability of open Carrier Grade Base Platforms (CGBP) based on Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) building blocks. An emerging requirement of NEPs is the ability to develop and integrate Java EE technology-based applications into the CGBP.
