The Technology

TradeNet has deployed the working prototype online using a mix of open-source software (linux/mysql) and a proprietary web application technology (coldfusion). During 2005, the goal is to port the application to an open-source foundation, using PHP. Our goal is to create an application that can be extended and modified by other developers using a plugin technology where they can incorporate new modules.

The MySQL database server is the world's most popular open source database. Over five million installations use MySQL to power high-volume Web sites and other critical business systems — including industry-leaders like The Associated Press, Google, NASA, Sabre Holdings and Suzuki. MySQL is an attractive alternative to higher-cost, more complex database technology. Its award-winning speed, scalability and reliability make it the right choice for corporate IT departments, Web developers and packaged software vendors.

In use at 75 of the Fortune 100 companies and at more than 10,000 other companies worldwide, ColdFusion MX is one of the most widely adopted proprietary web technologies in the industry. With ColdFusion MX, it's possible to deploy powerful web applications and web services quickly. Tradenet has been rapidly proto-typed using ColdFusion, and during 2005 we will port the application to PHP.
PHP is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded into HTML. It is open-source and has an extremely large base of developers around the world.

The Fedora Project is a Red-Hat-sponsored and community-supported open source project. The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from free software. Development will be done in a public forum. The Red Hat engineering team continues to participate in the building of Fedora Core and invites and encourages more outside participation than was possible in Red Hat Linux. By using this more open process, the hope is to provide an operating system that uses free software development practices and is more appealing to the open source community.
