eXo Platform is an open source, standard-based, Enterprise Social Platform[1] written in Java and distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License. The platform is sold and distributed by eXo Inc., a global company with U.S. headquarters in San Francisco, California, global headquarters in France, and offices in Tunisia and Vietnam.[2]


eXo Platform started in 2002 as an implementation of the JSR168 - Portlet API specification. Several introduction articles were then published between 2003 and 2005 on TheServerSide Java news website.[3][4] As a side effect, the eXo Platform Project grew into a company - eXo - in 2003, as a response to a customer demand, the U.S. Department of Defense (United States Joint Forces Command).[5]

Late 2005, eXo Platform v2 was released.[6][7] In 2006 eXo introduced the WebOS concept where an Enterprise Portal Layout could reproduce a Desktop UI.[8][9]

In 2009, eXo and Red Hat partnered to create GateIn Portal Framework[10] a portal framework. GateIn is used in eXo Platform since version 3.0.[11][12]

In 2010, eXo raised 4MEUR to create an Open Source Social Platform and grow internationally.[13][14]

In February 2013, eXo made a Spin Off - Codenvy - to target the Cloud IDE market.[15]

In May 2013, the 4th and current version of eXo Platform was introduced with a strong focus on Social Network and Social Integration capabilities.[16][17] Gartner, Lecko and other analyst firms have written about the software.[18][19][20] By December 2013, eXo went further in its evolution to a social enterprise platform and launched a cloud based intranet offer.[21]

In July 2014, eXo was selected as Project of the Month by Sourceforge.[22]
