Presentation Slides: Talk Synopsis:OSGi V4 R4.2 introduced the Remote Services specifications which, for the first time, gave a standard way to describe the distribution of OSGiservices. The design took a simple 'light touch' approach which meant that Remote Services implementations could embrace a wide variety of existing distribution technologies. In parallel, OASIS has been developing the Service Component Architecture (SCA) specifications. SCA provides a heterogeneous SOA programming model which spans an extensible number of implementation technologies (EJB, BPEL, C++, COBOL), bindings (Web services, JMS, IIOP, etc.) and policy languages (WS-Policy, etc). With SCA, you can assemble and re-assemble existing applications and assets, and mix in new implementation assets, improving re-use and flexibility to changing business needs. This presentation will give an introduction to the OSGi Remote Services and Service Component Architecture technologies. It will describe how the two can be combined allowing OSGi applications using Remote Services to exploit the variety of SCA implementation technologies, bindings and the policy framework. It will then give a demonstration of the combination in practice using a number of open source project, including Apache Aries and Apache Tuscany.Speaker Bio:Graham is a Senior Technical Staff Member at IBM's Hursley development laboratory in the UK.
