Where We Are and Where We Need to Be With SOA?

The success of SOA runs two ways. SOA serves as the catalyst for organizational change, yet an organization must be ready to embrace these new dimensions opened up by SOA. The latest survey data shows most organizations are just starting on their SOA journeys. Why do enterprises set out to build a Service Oriented Architecture, but end up with a "Service Averse Architecture"? There are many promises being made about the potential of SOA these days, followed by disillusionment as these promises don't pan out. However, SOA is more than a single IT project or even a series of implementations. Rather, SOA represents a long-term change in thinking and management of all aspects of the enterprise. SOA not only decomposes technology into loosely coupled systems, but also decomposes organizations into "loosely coupled businesses." This session will look at the latest survey d... (more)

Service Oriented Unified Process

Service orientation is one of the most popular trends of these recent years, but there are not any metrics on it. Hence you can not consume SOA in a project with a specific measuring. On the other side, Unified Process (especially RUP) has powerful abilities on such developments. In our discussion Chris Shayan is going to demonstrate that we can combine SOA and RUP with each other and finally make a Service Oriented Unified Process. Speaker Bio: Chris Shayan has authored three books which are on Flash ActionScript, UML and RUP. In addition, he has developed two open source frameworks which are Paradise RAD and AOJF. Also, Chris has participated in various open source projects such as hibernate, struts, liferay and etc. He has been a Java EE architect for about 3 years and right now he is CTO of ASHNA Samane Company.

AJAX & Flash Based RTView 5.0 Released

SL Corporation, a provider of real-time monitoring, analytics, and visualization software, today announced the availability of RTView version 5.0. This latest release allows users to mix and match a variety of Web 2.0 technologies – including AJAX and Flash – to deliver the most efficient real-time visibility applications for their needs, without requiring any technical knowledge of the Web 2.0 technologies.  RTView version 5.0 offers a hybrid approach that allows users to choose whichever Web 2.0 technology is most efficient to handle the rendering of Web pages and objects. The ability to mix and match Web 2.0 technologies means that some graphics can be images pushed out from the server, while others are rendered on the client. Further, because RTView handles all of the underlying Web 2.0 programming, the way each graphic is rendered and presented can ... (more)

EPTS4: The Future, from the Vendors

EPTS4 day 2 started with a a keynote by Susan Urban of Texas Tech Uni on a Roadmap for Research Directions. Susan comes from the active database world and was talking about fun stuff like distributed event processing agents and so forth. Susan emphasized “intelligence” as the ultimate goal (and hence of course CEP’s use for “operational intelligence”). Susan mentioned for example her baggage being routed to arrive ahead of her as an example of this (which, coincidentally, is also a TIBCO CEP use case for one of our airline customers). Future research directions include things like formalizing the semantics of the event cloud, modelling validation and correctness, and future visualizations in dashboards. Susan’s best quote for me was “you need an event processing language that embeds SQL, not the other way round”. This directly mirrors our thinking with TIBCO Busine... (more)

Map/Reduce, Twitter, RabbitMQ, and CEP – A More Realistic Example (part 1.5)

Progress Update I’ve updated all of my RabbitMQ installations to 1.7.1 and started to clear the Eclipse cobwebs out of my head and have found out that I do actually remember enough Java to be dangerous. Twitter OnRamp I’ve modified the gist Twitter Client into what I refer to as an OnRamp – we use OnRamps to get messages/event onto the information Super Highway.  In the Twitter OnRamp, I’ve subscribed to the samples.json feed and am publishing “jsonObject.getString(“text”)” to the RabbitMQ bus.  Before we talk about particulars regarding the AMQP specifics, I’d like to briefly touch upon load balancing, especially since we’re going to deploy the example in EC2 when we’re done here. The Picture on the Whiteboard Let’s paint a virtual whiteboard picture – on the left side of the board, you’ve got the Twitter OnRamp.  The Twitter OnRamp is publishing tweets onto the... (more)
