Documentation » Core Documentation

The core documentation of the OpenEAI Project consists of seven documents that serve as an aggregation of the state of research and implementation of the departments of the OpenEAI Project. Six of these documents correlate roughly to the six departments of the project, but there is some overlap to make the documentation suite more logical and useful. The remaining document is a guide to getting started with OpenEAI. The departments generate a significant amount of research and interim documentation on their own. This documentation can be found on the OpenEAI departmental sites and in the OpenEAI CVS repository. However, periodically the entire project takes a checkpoint of its status and serializes the state of its best thinking in these seven core documents. These periodic checkpoints naturally tend to coincide with new releases of the OpenEAI Application Foundation and Message Object APIs. The seven core documents are:
