Subject [event] TheServerSide Java Symposium - March 23-25
Date Fri, 17 Mar 2006 20:13:47 GMT
Several of us will be presenting at TheServerSide Java Symposium in  
Vegas next week (   
I've pulled together, what I think is a complete list of the Geronimo  
related sessions.  If I missed one, please speak up.

Transforming Enterprise Java into an Enterprise Commodity
   Geir Magnusson Jr.
   9:00 am - 9:50 am

Java has gone from a media and technology darling to a watermark  
platform in the industry. As a result, products have changed from  
being daring adoptions to more commoditized acquisitions - where even  
application servers are being repackaged and tuned for specific  
deployments. Geir Magnusson Jr. will present 'Transforming Enterprise  
Java into a Commodity,' an in-depth address about what  
commoditization means for the Java platform and its implications for  
the vendor and the developer community.

Open Source SOA Using POJOs
   James Strachan
   10:00 am - 11:15 am

This session will provide an overview of how folks should develop SOA  
applications so they can take advantage of various middleware  
technologies like JMS, RMI, WS, JBI, BPEL etc yet keep their code  
simple and POJO like and to deal with things like asynchronous  
messaging, ESBs and so forth showing examples using different Apache  
tools and frameworks.

Apache Geronimo Prime-time
   Jeff Genender
   11:30 am - 12:45 pm

Apache Geronimo is the latest open source application server to  
achieve J2EE 1.4 certification, making it ready for prime time in the  
Enterprise. It is now a real contender in the open source application  
server market and offers a unique architecture making different open- 
source projects pluggable and capable of building customized stacks.  
This session will present an overview of Apache Geronimo, its  
architecture, its major open source components, how it works, and how  
to configure and use the application server. This session will cover  
Geronimo's different concepts such as the kernel, GBeans, deployment  
and different configurations, and running the application server.

J2EE Development with Apache Geronimo
   Aaron Mulder and Dain Sundstrom
   2:30 pm - 3:45 pm

Apache Geronimo is an open source, J2EE-certified application server,  
and this session introduces Geronimo from the perspective of a J2EE  
developer. Do you have experience developing J2EE applications, but  
no idea how to get started with Geronimo? Or perhaps not sure whether  
to go with Tomcat, JBoss, or Geronimo? We'll start with a brief  
comparison with other open source app servers. Then we'll get you up  
to speed with J2EE development for Geronimo, from the administration  
console, to configuring database pools, JMS destinations, and  
securityrealms, to writing deployment descriptors for Geronimo and  
using the included deployment tools. You'll learn everything you need  
to install and configure the server, port your applications, and  
deploy them on Geronimo.

Service Oriented Architecture with JBI and ServiceMix
   Bruce Snyder
   2:30 pm - 3:45 pm

Service oriented architecture (SOA) has been around for years in many  
forms. But in recent years, Web Services standards are providing a  
much more solid definition. Web Services Definition Language (WSDL)  
is a protocol- and technology- independent standard used to describe  
Web Services and model interactions between endpoints and is a key  
technology within Web Services.

Java Business Integration (JBI) provides a standards-based  
architecture for enterprise integration. JBI does not define a  
traditional application programming model. Instead, it embraces a  
service-oriented approach to structuring enterprise functions, where  
JBI components function as service providers and consumers. JBI  
models services produced and consumed by components using a WSDL- 
based messaging model.

As developers, once we get past all of these definitions, how are we  
to develop applications using these concepts? This session will  
explain JBI and ServiceMix and how they all fit together to provide a  
full SOA platform for developing composite applications.
