JAX London Welcomes OSGi Alliance a Conference Partners

Third Day of JAX London

Jessica Thornsby

JAX London attendees get an introduction to concurrent code, BIRT, and architecturing – the martial arts way!

For the third day of JAX London, we welcomed the OSGi Alliance
as our conference partners, with a full OSGi DevCon program running
in parallel to JAX London sessions.

JAX speaker Thilo Frotscher went beyond the WS-Security standard
and introduced session attendees to Secure Token Service, and
single sign-on for services and standards such as
WS-SecureConversation. Afterwards, Dierk König delivered a session
on the tools that are available to the Java developer who wishes to
start their journey with concurrent code. Meanwhile, Ted Neward
introduced us to the concept of katas – an ancient tradition with
roots in the martial arts – and how these can be applied to turn an
architect newbie, into a great architect.

The OSGi Alliance presented several case studies on building
home networking services on home gateway, in Takefumi Yamazaki’s
‘Case Study Report on i-House experiments using intermediate
service platform based on OSGi technology’ and conference attendees
were introduced to the Bndtools Eclipse-based development
environment in the ‘Rapid Bundle Development with Bndtools for
Eclipse’ session.

Later on today, JAX speaker Mica Block will run a double-whammy
of sessions for BIRT fans, with a twenty-minute BIRT overview,
before diving into a live demo session in ‘Interactivity: Giving
Your Users What They Want.’
