Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to OpenACS/ArsDigita software distinction?

Posted by Roberto Mello on
OpenACS is based on the toolking originally developed at ArsDigita. The project forked from the ArsDigita code-base a long time ago. OpenACS has heavily modified and enhanced the original code-base.

ArsDigita then went on to develop a Java version of the toolkit, which is incompatible with the GPL, so we're not porting it.
