Third Day of JAX London
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.’
