The infozone project is an
open initiative for the creation of an open
source, Java and XML based framework of components that allows programmers to create

Enterprise Information Portals
Enterprise Information Portals are applications that integrate all kind of
data sources and provide users a single gateway to personalized information

are combined to build actual applications. EIP software has to be a toolset
of software components and technologies that fit into a central framework.
