Where do we go to ask questions?
Email is the best way, either directly to one of the people listed on the
Developers page or join the
We'd prefer the mailing list since it gets archived for the public.
What open standards are supported by TUCAN?
TUCAN supports CORBA, and right now on the backend supports POP email, and
future support for iCal calendaring is planned. Instant messaging has been
discussed, such as AIM, Yahoo etc, but right now the focus is on basic services
like email, calendar, fax, voice mail and addressbook. Everything is dependent
on the servant side of things, so we can easily add in many types of messaging
to the system.
What CORBA compliance do you have? What ORBs have you tested on?
Currently, all of our software is built on top of the omniORB3 CORBA
implementation. We have not actually done tucan testing with other orbs
but there has been a good deal of testing between omniORB3 and other ORBS
so tucan should work accross orbs just the same as omniORB3 does.
Hopefully once we get things more stable we can sit down and do more
distributed testing accross multiple orbs. You could check the omniORB3
site for more info on this ...
I am interested in porting to Some Platform; is anyone else doing so?
Right now our only supported system is linux, but we'd love to see TUCAN get
ported to others, let us know if you do get it working on another platform and
we will list it on the website.
