Hi, our company currently research Tuscany to use as core for our SOA product implementation. We don't have clear picture about Tuscany users/developers community. Can you answer on couple question regarding this:

How large is the developer community? Which companies are the main drivers behind it?

Which commercial or open source products are based on Tuscany? I saw several on http://tuscany.apache.org/projects-using-tuscany.html.
Your answers can help us a lot. Thanks

Several vendors are working on the SCA Specification at OASIS Open CSA.

Tuscany implements these specifications and has had contributions from various members from different companies, educational institution or independent contributors.

As for products based on Tuscany, the page you mentioned (projects-using-tuscany.html) has a small list of users that is using Tuscany in production environment and provided feedback about their experience. Also, from the link below [2] IBM also have a support for SCA based on Tuscany SCA Implementation.

Please let us know if you have other questions.
