Cloudy with a Chance of Bundles (and non Java Components)
Track: OSGi Track #2Location:Abstract:
Maintainable, adaptive Systems must be modular in nature. Hence OSGi, the open industry standard for modularity, provides the ideal foundations upon which the next generation of lightweight, adaptive public and private Cloud platforms and hosted applications can be built.
The talk will explore some of the current OSGi Alliance activities with respect to distributed computing, Cloud runtimes and the extension of OSGi concepts to more traditional software artifacts; specifically dynamic resolution, requirements and capabilities, remote services and semantic versioning. Consideration will be given to the Operational benefits that can be derived from from adopting a modular approach to Cloud rather than the typical virtual machine based solutions that do nothing to address the complexity and technical debt that has been accrued over the years.
The talk will conclude with a demonstration of the Service Fabric, the industries first distributed OSGi cloud runtime, where the above concepts will be demonstrated.
