Scout is a framework to build state of the art business applications.

In February 2010 Scout was published as an Eclipse Project Proposal. There is a Forum and we’re also using Twitter.

The three driving values behind Scout are stability, flexibility, and simplicity:

  • Stability: Ensure the Scout runtime runs stable in every environment.
  • Flexibility: Ensure possibilities to extend Scout and Scout SDK (Tooling for Scout) by providing Eclipse compliant extension points.
  • Simplicity: Evaluate every additional layer and abstraction carefully of its usefulness to keep the framework as light and simple as possible.
