Project Zero an IBM incubator project is an extension of the Eclipse open source Java programming IDE. It allows Java programmers to use a familiar development environment to create dynamic Web applications. While the project is supported by a “community,” much like open source efforts, the aim of Project Zero is commercial, with IBM counting on getting feedback from developers in the mean time.
Project Zero users can create Web 2.0 applications based on a service-oriented architecture, with a special emphasis on simplicity and ease of use. A Project Zero white paper describes this concept as “Web-oriented architecture,” aiming to improve interactions at the browser or client level.
