Managing Installations and Provisioning of OSGi Applications

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

There are many different solutions for provisioning an OSGi application and maintaining its modules. The OSGi Installer from the Apache Sling project is a generic installation mechanism and supports bundles and configurations out of the box. It can be extended with other distribution formats like deployment packages or custom ones. The installation sources are pluggable as well, it ranges from file system to data stores like a Java content repository. This session introduces the installer and demonstrates how to utilize it to match own requirements from development to deployment.

The Fat Client: The original cloud

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Long, long ago, before cloud computing existed, we had client-server computing. With all its problems and limitations, it could do something we generally don't nowadays: Harness the power of clients. Sure, it won't amount to much if all the clients are smartphones, but often clients have lots of memory, many gigabytes of storage, and several processor cores that are just idling away. The cloud has given us scalability and reasonably cheap processing power, but also the realization that whatever you do on your cloud does cost money.
