While the world economy suffered in 2009, mobile open source projects experienced robust growth, according to an analysis by Black Duck Software that reflects the relative health of the mobile industry and growing interest in applications developed on open source software (OSS) platforms. Black Duck Software is the leading global provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software.
