Not for free.

It should be noted that Apple considers NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP products to be competition for their Mac OS X business.

So even though WebObjects for Mac OS X/Mac OS X Server may be "free", you still have to buy a Mac and use either Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server (so they are still making money on WebObjects).

WebObjects for OPENSTEP is still a completely viable product... and Apple knows this. Consequently, Apple doesn't want to see WebObjects 3.x floating around the net for free.


As for buying a copy... I haven't seen one around for a while.

This isn't surprising. The original price of WebObjects back then meant that anyone who was using it was very serious in their use. Those types of clients would keep older versions of WebObjects on hand as important software for accessing their past works.

I know of a couple places off hand for WebObjects 4.5 for Rhapsody/Windows NT, but 3.x is very rare.

Ok, I see. But when WO 5.x is released as open source, wouldn't it be possible to port it to gnustep somehow (I'm not familiar with gnustep, so I don't know)?

Maybe. WO is slowly becoming nothing but a J2EE container.

Winfried,

GNUstep has WebObjects, in a few forms.

First is part of GNUstep, GSWeb

Then there is SOPE Skyrix Object Publishing Environment.

There is also a java version of of SOPE called JOPE on the same page.

Then there is a groupware suite built on SOPE, OpenGroupware (OGo)

SOPE, JOPE and OGo use libFoundation instead of gnustep-base, and can run on a system without GNUstep installed on it, or can be configured to integrate with GNUstep.

For any further information on these, please contact the developers at the urls above.
Re GNUstep itself, try the main website GNUstep or the wiki, GNUstep wiki or IRC irc.freenode.net /join #gnustep.

I hope this helps.

Tenzin
