Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) can deliver tremendous value in flexibility, adaptability and cost savings. But SOA environments are complex by definition, with lots of loosely coupled components and a potentially vast combination of platforms, software, databases, applications and networks. One of the biggest challenges inherent in realizing the benefits of SOA is effectively managing all of these diverse components to ensure the high availability and performance of the applications running in them to meet crucial Service Level Agreements (SLAs). This session will explore Complex Event Processing (CEP) engines and offer practical insights into how CEP can be leveraged to enable rapid real-time problem correction and predictive problem prevention that is vital to successful SOA implementations. Speaker Bio: Rich Schreiber has over 30 years experience selling and... (more)

Turning Service-Oriented Events into Business Insight

The quest for agility has spurred the recent rise of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the face of modern IT integration architecture is changing. Technology stovepipes of the past are now being connected by Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) technology, which provides the backbone for the networking, communication, mediation, and service container management needed to support an SOA. Every integration software vendor provides some form of ESB in its products and the ESB has risen to the status of a de facto standard for SOA integrating. But what's the next step in the evolution of the IT integration fabric? The next step is a new class of software called event-stream processing, or ESP. ESP has been hailed as the "next big thing" by both software vendors and analysts because it helps an SOA integration fabric become intelligent and responsive. ESP empowers a busin... (more)

Making Sense of the BPM & SOA Standards Alphabet Soup

What is BPEL? What is XPDL? How are they different? What is the best use for each? What is BPMN and why should I care? Which of these are primarily designed to help IT at a technical level, and which help an organization at a business level? Amongst the flurry of BPM and Web services standards that appear to overlap at times, there is a central core of important ones. This session, led by Keith Swenson, Fujitsu's Chief Architect and Co-Chair of the Workflow Management Coalition Technical Committee (WfMC), is aimed at lending clarity to the fuzzy world of BPM and Web services standards and at explaining the benefits of investing in standards-driven solutions. Speaker Bio: Keith Swenson is Vice President of Research and Development at Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation for the Interstage family of products. He is known for having been a pioneer in web services, and h... (more)

Turbo-Charging Applications with Mid-Tier Distributed Caching

Today's applications require faster and more frequent access to data at the mid-tier than ever before. This is due to a number of factors, including massive growth of data volumes and the extreme processing requirements that accompany such growth, the pressure from ever-changing business requirements, and the adoption of architectural approaches and frameworks such as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web 2.0 and the resulting demands that these frameworks make on data. The requirements of accessing and modifying this data quickly using many different forms such as batch, OLTP, and online access are stretching back-end data stores to the limit. Much of this overload is caused by the classic mismatch between the object and relational worlds and the massive overhead required to convert data between the two different formats. The problem is compounded further when... (more)

The Role of Event-Driven Architecture in Business Applications

Three-letter acronyms (TLAs) are hardly new in Information Technology: EAI, ESB, SOA, BPM, BAM, ETL, MDM; the list goes on and on. This article is about yet another three-letter acronym, EDA, which stands for Event-Driven Architecture. EDA is not a brand new technology, but rather a proven paradigm in system-level programs, war and military simulator applications, gaming, and other areas. EDA has started to shape how general-purpose business applications are architected. This article explores the relationship between EDA and business applications, explains the technical background, and provides implementation details of a sample use case. Business Applications and EDA Despite efforts to simplify the IT infrastructure for medium and large enterprises, this area often becomes fragmented and disparate. This problem is prevalent in fast-growing business environments, as... (more)

Colin Clark Launches CEP Topic on Ulitzer

CEP on Ulitzer Colin Clark launched on Wednesday "CEP Complex Event Processing" topic on Ulitzer. "I was recently introduced to Ulitzer. And I like it a lot. You can check out my contributions on Ulitzer by clicking here," he recently wrote in his blog. Colin has been processing events in event processing for over 20 years and has both founded a couple of companies and held executive positions at others in the space. You can follow Colin on Twitter at http:\\twitter.com\CCEPLLC and send topic suggestions to colin@colinclarkeventprocessing.com. "Complex event processing, or CEP, is primarily an event processing concept that deals with the task of processing multiple events with the goal of identifying the meaningful events within the event cloud. CEP employs techniques such as detection of complex patterns of many events, event correlation and abstraction, event hi... (more)

Java Basics: Processing GUI Events

Various events may happen to a running program: a user clicks on a button in a window, the Web browser decides to re-paint the window, and so on. I'm sure, you've tried to click on the buttons of the calculator from the lesson on Swing Basics, but these buttons were not ready to respond to your actions yet. This time, let's teach window components to react on such actions. Each window component can listen to and process a number of events, and your program has to register window components with Java classes called listeners. You should make components listen to only those events they are interested in. For example, when a person moves the mouse cursor over the calculator button, it's not important where exactly the mouse pointer at the click-moment as long as it was right above the button. That's why you do not need to register the button with Java's MouseMotionListen... (more)

AjaxWord: An Open Source Web Word Processor

AjaxWord (www.ajaxword.com) is an open source Web-based word processor. It closely mimics Microsoft Word in both look-and-feel and functionality. The application was initially written between 1997 and 1999 using JavaScript/DHTML on the client side with ASP on the server side. It was released on the Web in 2000. In 2005, the application's server-side logic was migrated to Java and released as open source code. On the client side, the application looks and feels like a typical desktop application, e.g., Microsoft Word. The design features the kind of rich graphical user interface that Microsoft Word users are familiar with, such as hierarchical menus, toolbars, wizards, file dialogs, and a multiple document interface (MDI). (Figure 1) On the server side, the application is a typical Java-based Web application. It features: User authentication and authorization. User-... (more)
