Hewlett Packard just released the E-Speak object broker under the GNU GPL

E-speak breaks the tight linkage that constrains applications to specific
hardware or operating system environments, dynamically virtualizing the
entire e-services environment. The e-speak core software consists of two
elements: universal e-services APIs and a run-time e-services engine.
E-speak run-time software is installed on each computing device or
information appliance that connects to the virtual services environment.
The run-time software then provides basic infrastructure capabilities like
messaging, mediation, security, naming, and monitoring for the e-speak
e-services hosted on, or accessed by, these devices. Through the
consistent e-speak services interface (APIs), developers can design and
create any e-service using a set of elegant, simple e-services programming


We can add that to the list of brokers, which includes CORBA, XML-RPC,
SOAP, and of course PAOS.
