VIENNA, Austria - October 27, 2009 - Reaffirming its increasing commitment to proven and broadly used open source technologies, SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) joins a number of projects at the Apache Software Foundation, an independent foundation focused on open-source software projects. Working together with the Apache community of developers and users, SAP plans to further support the development and use of open solutions to drive industry standards and empower the developer community with the tools they need to be successful. The announcement was made at SAP® TechEd 2009, the company's largest ecosystem education event, being held October 27-29 in Vienna, Austria.
The Apache Software Foundation is an independent organization encouraging developers, users and technology vendors to contribute to its collaborative, consensus-based development process that strives to deliver high quality, freely available software products that attract large communities of users. SAP intends to contribute to several additional projects, including the Maven, VXQuery, Tomcat, OpenEJB and ActiveMQ projects, in an effort to enhance these technologies for use in future releases of the SAP NetWeaver® Application Server component.
Went through this interesting article “How To Ask Questions The Smart Way”, while a bit old (2006), it is full of very good advices for asking questions the smart way (and also sometimes finding an answer on your own).
In the world of hackers, the kind of answers you get to your technical questions depends as much on the way you ask the questions as on the difficulty of developing the answer. This guide will teach you how to ask questions in a way more likely to get you a satisfactory answer.
Now that use of open source has become widespread, you can often get as good answers from other, more experienced users as from hackers. This is a Good Thing; users tend to be just a little bit more tolerant of the kind of failures newbie's often have. Still, treating experienced users like hackers in the ways we recommend here will generally be the most effective way to get useful answers out of them, too.
The first thing to understand is that hackers actually like hard problems and good, thought-provoking questions about them. If we didn't, we wouldn't be here. If you give us an interesting question to chew on we'll be grateful to you; good questions are a stimulus and a gift. Good questions help us develop our understanding, and often reveal problems we might not have noticed or thought about otherwise. Among hackers, “Good question!” is a strong and sincere compliment.

"The Apache Software Foundation provides support for the Apache community of open-source software projects. The Apache projects are characterized by a collaborative, consensus based development process, an open and pragmatic software license, and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field. We consider ourselves not simply a group of projects sharing a server, but rather a community of developers and users."
