FLEXSTOR.org announces that two project members are participating on panels at the Global Society for Asset Management (G-SAM) 03 conference. Joseph Mullen is going to participate in the "Thorny Issues: DAM In Flux" panel and Gary Bollinger is on the " Development Approaches to DAM: To Build Or Not To Build" panel. The two bring the open source perspective. The conference is November 10 - 11 in New York. Both panels are on November 11.
G-SAM is an user driven organization founded to support DAM users. They can be found on the web at http://www.g-sam.org. We encourage everyone to check them out and be a part of an organization driven by users, for users. Tell them FLEXSTOR sent you.
We would love to meet you and discuss open source at the conference. Bring a thorny issue for Joe or an implementation question for Gary. We hope to stir up the waters.

FLEXSTOR.org announces the availability of the binary release of FLEX-db the enterprise Digital Asset Manager (DAM) version 126.96.36.199. FLEX-db was contributed to the open source community by FLEXSTOR with the goal of building a community around a standard DAM platform for the access, storage and processing of digital computer file based information.
Developers and users worldwide now have an open source standard J2EE DAM platform to embed into workflows requiring access to and processing of digital files. The availability of this piece of infrastructure software opens up the possibilities for users seeking to create innovative integrated solutions across their organization.
"As we promised last April, FLEXSTOR has worked with the other founding members of FLEXSTOR.org to deliver FLEX-db to the open source community," said Joe Mullen CTO of FLEXSTOR and Administrator of FLEXSTOR.org. "With over 1700 java classes, this represents a significant contribution to the open source community. We see this as the starting point for the creation of a vibrant new open source community which fills a hole in the open source software landscape."
The open source release of FLEX-db is based on FLEXSTOR's leading DAM technology, version 188.8.131.52.17. The technology represents a full-featured cross platform DAM solution including a JSP client interface accessing EJB and Java backend layers for metadata management and file input/output processing respectively. The code was refactored, repackaged and new installation procedures created for the initial open source release. The software can be downloaded from http://www.flexstor.org/.
