Etch - a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent
framework for building and consuming network services.
</p>
<p>
Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent
framework for building and consuming network services. The Etch
toolset includes a network service description language, a compiler,
and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages. Etch is
also transport-independent, allowing for a variety of different
transports to used based on need and circumstance. The goal of Etch is
to make it simple to define small, focused services that can be easily
accessed, combined, and deployed in a similar manner. Ultimately with
Etch, service development and consumption becomes no more difficult
than library development and consumption.

Prior to acceptance there was a great deal of discussion whether
Apache Etch would interfere with the Debian Etch distribution. The
sceptics meant that Debian Etch is extremely well-known name and
should be avoided. The team defended the position by pointing out
that by the time Apache Etch graduates, Debian Lenny has taken
over the world and another year or two the Debian Etch is just a
distant memory.
