ActiveODMA is a software portfolio that extends usability of the AIIM Open Document Management API
(ODMA) and middleware. ActiveODMA provides configuration confirmation and
troubleshooting tools. The provisions for using the ODMA API will then be
extended to support Java and .NET integration. New ODMA fixtures, documentation, and sample code
make ODMA Visual Basic- and script-friendly.
ActiveODMA is in an early bootstrapping phase. Initial
software is being developed in the ODMdev ODMA Development Framework section of this site.
As the work on ODMJNI continues, source code will be moved to the
All ActiveODMA software and related materials are provided under open-source
- 2007-09-29: ODMJNI 0.59 Public Transition Candidate Defined
Definition of the 0.59beta Public Transition Candidate is complete and
work has begun on the second of five stages that will be integrated for the
release. This will provide the first look at a working version of
those ODMJNI 1.0 API elements that are expected to be stable and preserved
from release 0.60 and beyond. The
provides links to additional materials that reflect the development and
results of the four remaining stages.
- 2007-09-16: ODMJNI 0.59 beta candidate being defined
The 0.59 roll-up will identify interface elements that are deprecated
for removal in the 0.60 public beta. The 0.59 release will also
include their replacements intended for use hereafter. Both forms are
available for use in transitioning existing code using 0.59. This also
applies to the confirmation and regression tests, which will be provided in
Definition of 0.59 is now available for review and planning of
adjustment to the changes.
- 2007-07-28: ODMJNI Public Beta Preview Available
ODMJNI 1.0 Java-ODMA Integration Kit
is now available for
Public Beta Preview. This initial ActiveODMA
offering is being provided as a starter stage for development of the ODMA
Development Framework first proposed at the end of 2005. More
information is in the ODMdev section of
the ODMA Interoperability Exchange site.

- 2005-10-06: Material Trickling Out
The work on the ODMdev kit was side-tracked to take a look at the
participation history of ODMA and what personae the new work should be
accessible to. There's an incomplete sketch. In addition, in preparing for some code
examples and experiments, there's initial material on what software to use. The next step is to
populate the ODMdev area with supporting material
and provide a sketch of how this will be built out. To simplify
tracking and limit this page to more-substantial milestones, further
tracking reports and progress statements will be made on the ActiveODMA
distribution list. See the contact page
for information about using the list.
