Welcome to the OW2 AspireRFID Wiki

Executive Summary

The AspireRFID project aims at developing and promoting an free, open source, lightweight, standards-compliant, scalable, privacy-friendly, and integrated middleware along with several tools to ease the development, the deployment and the management of RFID-based applications and sensor-based applications. It implements several specifications from consortiums such as EPC Global, NFC Forum, JCP and OSGi Alliance.

AspireRFID provides also a set of tools enabling RFID consultants to deploy RFID solutions without a need for tedious low-level programming. AspireRFID allows the specification of RFID enabled processes. Accordingly, the tools generate all the RFID artifacts required to deploy these solutions over the AspireRfid middleware.
