somFree - Portable implementation of SOM
« on: January 12, 2013, 05:26:51 pm »
"A portable clean-room implementation of IBM's SOM. Includes DSOM capabilities with CORBA IDL and IIOP."
http://sourceforge.net/projects/somfree/

I'm not sure for how long was this project on SourceForge. But it looks it had been some activity recently (2013-01)

I don't know much about it, but I hope it can also help us to have a open source clone of SOM on our platform. The compiled files are only available for some *nix flavours, but maybe it can help us on the future.

It is an open source project under the LGPL V3 license.

UPDATE: I noticed the project was registered 4 days ago.  And the source code it says is from "Roger Brown's Toolkit"(LGPLv3)

Nice. Roger added a "Completeness" page to see the progress of the project:
https://sourceforge.net/p/somfree/wiki/complete/

A windows port of it was released too.
