In 2008 the Eclipse Foundation created the new top-level project called the Eclipse runtime project with the goal to foster, promote and house runtime efforts in the Eclipse community. The idea of the Eclipse community registry project is to help promote the runtime project by providing a platform for the users of the Eclipse runtime where they can not only publish and expose their services created with the Eclipse runtime, but also where they can explore services of other users, test and integrate them in their applications. The Eclipse Community Registry project shall support to establish an ecosystem where users get the chance to evaluate published services, propose enhancements and new features for existing services, but also to request completly new services, which are implemented by other community members. At the moment the Eclipse community registry is only a project idea. The focus of the talk will therefore be to get into a discussion with the audience abou the the followng topics:
An architectiral blue print
Features and roadmap, features should include:
Storing and managing of all kind of resurces necessary to identify, describe and use a service
Advanced searching facilities based evalutaion, tags and other information provied by the user community
Community features such as evaluating, tagging, and commenting of services
Runtime mediation between Service consumers and the services that are publicly available
Monitoring of services, e.g. the availability of services.
Validation of resources and consistency between related resources
Available standards, protocols, interfaces, APIs
How an integration with the Swordfishproject and speficic components of the STP project will look like.
What will be the operational mode to host such a platform
What are the necessary prerequisites to create a lively ecosystem based on the platform, opposite to other similar intiatives that failed
Are there specific business models that stimulate people to participate in the comunity
If you are keen to participate in a project that is still in its definition phase from the very beginning you should attend the talk.
