I'm interested on this paper. We've build a full SDI over free software
(geonetwork, mapserver, geoserver, mysql and gvsig),
and had done some presentations too, and I'm interested in contrast
prespectives. It's your paper available?

Well, the point of my group was to prove the maturity of free GIS
solutions to build a reald world solution.
Another point for us was to use free (and not only open source) tools.
Our proposal was presente at GisPlanet on
Lisbon (Workshop 09 on wednesday, june 1: An Open Source Solution for
the GI World)

I agree with Jan-Oliver Wagner than maybe you'll have an easy path to
yor goal tryin to integrate free GIS
pieces into a 'enterprise' integrated solution. It may be, and has be done.

Look at the literature from the main free servers: Mapserver, GeoServer,
Deegree, GeoNetwork. Look too at
the GSDI Cookbook, and as client tools you can try QGis, uDIG. gvSIG by
now has his docs only in spanish and
the current version available for download only has WMS conectivity.
