Project Description
Fluent JDF contains everything you need to quickly add JDF capabilities to any .NET client application. It includes powerful tools that allow you to easily author, parse and send JDF and JMF.  If you are familiar with JDF terminology, Fluent JDF has everything you need to build a JDF agent.  Additionally, It includes support for sending JMF, processing JMF responses and interpreting JDF that would be useful in JDF devices and controllers.  

Our team is also working on a complete JDF controller/device framework called the JDF workflow foundation that we plan to release in the near future under a more commercial licensing model.  It will be free to use in development and free to deploy for small, in-house, single-server environments.  It utilizes Fluent JDF internally and adds complete plumbing for building scalable, reliable JDF controllers and devices.  All you have to do is provide your application logic.  We plan to have a preview release of JMF available soon.  We will announce it here when it becomes available.
