Decibel[Open communication desktop interface -- concluded on 2007/09/01]
Decibel (formerly known as "OpenCDI") provides a generic infrastructure, which integrates existing communication protocols --like any plugin based solution would do-- without the need for an application which presents everything in one user interface. It creates components and services, each optimized for a special task (or role). When a component realizes user interaction, the service will provide the technology. A service-based architecture will interconnect components to fulfill a given task.
