Christopher Frost (SpringSource, Inc )
OSGi DevCon · Standard
Wednesday, 10:40, 20 minutes | Ballroom D
OSGi offers a new way to split up your applications into many bundles. Snaps allows you to do the same for your web front ends. Snaps started life as a prototype for the dm Server project called Slices and was donated shortly after dm Server was donated as the Virgo project.
This talk will give a brief overview of how Snaps works and then go straight to a demo of some of the things you can do with Snaps such as dynamic re-branding of a site, or constructing a modular admin application that can accept new sections on-the-fly.
Chris has been a professional Java developer for 8 years and has spent the last 3 working for SpringSource on the dm Server/Virgo project. As well as enjoying working in an open source community as a Virgo committer he is interested in software design and the modularisation of web applications. When not at work he likes learning about new technologies and occasionally jumps out of aeroplanes (for fun).
