How do I get OpenII?
You can download an executable zip file and/or the entire codebase from the OpenII page on SourceForge
Why is MITRE spearheading an open source information integration toolkit?
MITRE is a not-for-profit corporation chartered in the public interest; we frequently support U.S. state, local, and federal government agencies (e.g., the FAA, the Army, the IRS, local first responders). Because information integration is a huge challenge for these agencies, it has been a high priority area for MITRE research investment over the years. Providing the OpenII software free with the very forgiving Apache license helps promote adoption of this technology in ways that will benefit our sponsors.
How can I contribute my cool integration technology?
The first step is to contact the project administrators. Let us know what you're interested in contributing, what it does, what assumptions it makes, and its level of maturity. Before contacting us, make sure you'd be comfortable with the Apache 2.0 license that we use for all OpenII code.
Can I work on OpenII for my Master Thesis project?
You bet! We have have plenty of ideas for tools that would be great to add to the tool suite. And, improving OpenII has a widespread benefit and gives you marketable skills. Please contact us if you are interested.
