CECID H2O ebMS - Community Site Launched

The Center for E-Commerce Infrastructure Development (CECID) at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) have announced the launch of Hermes Messaging Gateway v2.0 (H2O) Community Website to enhance support services to users.

In just two months since its release the H2O messaging system has already been downloaded and adopted by developers and users from over 40 economies around the world.

In response to such overwhelming support CECID has launched a new Community Site to channel the valuable feedback received daily via the mailing list cecid-hermes2@googlegroups.com into a formal resource center for adopters.

The Community Site provides technical information and articles covering everything from configuration hints and tips, fixes and patches, through to general usage of H2O on different platforms.

The first version of Hermes was released in 2002 and has since become a popular and award-winning open source solution for organizations to exchange information in ebXML Messaging (ebMS) or Applicability Specification 2 (AS2) formats with their business partners. The latest version, H2O (H-two-oh), replaces two predecessors (H2CE and H2EE) with additional tools and a full set of documentation to make configuration and administration easy.

H2O and its source code (http://community.cecid.hku.hk/index.php/product/download/download_h2o/) are released under GNU General Public License Version 2.

CECID’s VARs offer professional support services. For more information, requests can be sent to enquiry@cecid.hku.hk.
