POSSL is an enterprise application development environment that simplifies the building of transactional, component-based Web applications. The POSSL technology is based on Panther, a proven development environment used by Fortune 500 companies around the globe to build enterprise-level, mission-critical applications. The Panther software, including an Enterprise JavaBean (EJB) component builder, is most widely recognized as a development environment for IBM WebSphere Application Server. POSSL's source code license is modeled after the BSD license; it allows unrestricted use of the POSSL code in both open source and proprietary software.

CollabNet is providing its SourceCast collaborative development environment for the site and is working to establish as an open source virtual community.
