Technology Access Center -- Ruple "Ruple provides a foundation for applications to collaborate transparently and independently by selectively and securely sharing documents over the existing Internet infrastructure and technology. By leveraging a simple, SOAP-based interface for reading and writing documents to and from the space, implementing reads based on content instead of physical address, and building on document-level security, Ruple is a first step in fulfilling the great promise of the Internet for collaborative business applications." Ruple is a Linda space (the same thing as Java Spaces implements), but which works with XML technology and XML queries. It is a commercial technology from Rogue Wave.
