An Overview of JBossESB by Mark Little, JBoss CTO

21 May

Mark Little, the JBoss Chief Technical Officer, has decided to take a small detour during his JavaOne San Francisco visit and talk in front our monthly gathering , at SDForum Java SIG. He will be our guest on June 2nd and will give a technical overview of the JBoss Enterprise Bus. Since we will have him surrounded, he will probably have no other choice but also answer questions on strategic issues such as where is JBoss heading, how is it reacting to the current economic and competitive landscape changes, and any other kind of questions a Chief Technical Officer of a popular Open Source group may receive from a Silicon Valley gathering of technology enthusiasts.


June 2nd, 2009, the first Tuesday of the month.

In this presentation we’ll look at the evolution of JBossESB from an in-house project, through a code donation, to the basis of the Red Hat/JBoss SOA Platform. We’ll look at some of the architectural aspects of the ESB, where it relates to standards such as WS-* and REST, and plans for the future including OSGi and SCA.
