OSGI AND THE ENTERPRISE
OSGi is one of the most talked about topic within Enterprise Java at the moment; major organisations are repositioning their development efforts to take advantage of OSGi.  There is substantial mystery and strong claims regarding capability, methods for use and the benefits to the developer and the business.  Ben will review the present state of the OSGi landscape providing a personal insight into both what OSGi can achieve and the issues that will be encountered trying to get there.

Eclipse Verticals - From Open Source Consumption to Creation

Open Source Software is commonly understood as free and easy to access commodity. But we see an increasing trend in vertical industries such as banking, insurance and systems engineering to use the Open Source community paradigm to collaboratively develop, maintain and distribute software.

In the talk, we want to use the Eclipse Open Source project as an example to describe how Open Source Foundations, licenses and governance models and an open architecture can support these groups and consortia. We will also give
a brief overview over the development and IP processes that the Eclipse Foundation has put into place to make it easier for enterprises to capture the value provided
by the Eclipse Open Source Project.

Leveraging Eclipse For Desktop Applications - Case Study
While Eclipse is generally regarded as the leading IDE for Java developers, it can also be used as a platform for writing scalable, enterprise quailty applications. We will present the frameworks we have used from the Eclipse community to develop our desktop applications and show how Eclipse can be leveraged as sensible architectural choice for the future.

SPRING INTEGRATION - LATEST DEVELOPMENTS
Spring Integration framework provides a simple model for creating message-driven systems by encapsulating the internal complexities of the systems. That way the business components of a system can be declaratively configured without knowledge of the integration infrastructure. Then Spring Integration delivers Inversion of Control principles to the run-time arena.  SpringSource CEO Rod Johnson has said that “Spring Integration represents a key direction for Spring developers who are looking to build service-oriented, message-driven applications.”

SOA In Practice


Service-Oriented Architecture is an approach to developing complexdistributed software projects that can be of real help to businesseswith medium and large scale IT requirements as they try to reduceup-front costs of developing for growth.

With a number of real-world examples and case studies, this talk isintended to introduce SOA and to show that judicious application of its tenets brings real value to the process of developing systems.

The Future of Java for Rich Internet Applications

Last year, Sun announced a new group of technologies called JavaFX. The idea behind this was to take the strengths of the Java platform as a robust, secure environment and deliver exciting new ways for developers to quickly and easily create and deploy visually appealiing internet
applications.

Since then a lot of work has been done culminating in the launch of the preview release of the JavaFX SDK at the end of July.

This session will look at what JavaFX really is, the new compiler and tools available in the SDK and how to get started building applications.
We'll also look at the forthcoming Java SE 6 update 10 release of the JDK and JRE which includes some exciting new developments for simplifying the deployment of the Java environment to large numbers of
desktops.
