Description:The ADempiere project was created in September 2006 after a long running disagreement between ComPiere Inc., the developers of Compiere(TM), and the community that formed around that project. The community believed Compiere Inc. placed too much emphasis on the open source nature of the project, rather than the community nature of the project, and after an impassioned discussion decided to split from Compiere(TM) giving birth to the ADempiere project.The project name comes from the Italian word meaning 'to fulfill' but with additional context of "to complete, reach, practice, perform the duties of, or free (discharge), it also means to honor and respect", which was felt was very appropriate to what the project wished to achieve.
