Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2010 Symposium recap by Tim Knapp
Gartner names Caucho® Technology in the 2010 report for “Cool Vendors in Platform and Integration Middleware.” Last week Caucho® exhibited and presented at the sold out Gartner Symposium/ITxpo with over 9,000 senior and middle management attendees. Caucho® Engineer, Reza Rahman, delivered presentations on Caucho® and the Resin Application Server at the Emerging Technologies venue. In addition, he covered a handful of booth presentations with an audience of engaged and interested attendees. The high traffic was consistent throughout the conference. There was a definite show of interest in the solutions Caucho® can provide for application performance and management.
Java2days 2010 conference trip report by Reza Rahman
The Java2Days 2010 conference was hosted in Bulgaria and targeted the greater Balkan region. This year’s conference went very well as it drew a larger and more enthusiastic crowd than in the previous year. The exuberant crowd is in stark contrast to the comparatively lackluster Java conferences in the United States and Western Europe.
All three of my sessions were well attended with excellent feedback from each of them. The session on CanDI titled “A Quick Tour of Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE” was especially well received with a full house and lively Q&A along with requests for the CanDI demo code. The audience for the Java EE 6 testing talk titled “Testing Java EE 6 Applications: Tools and Techniques” was also very good. People were extremely surprised to see how easy and powerful testing has become with Java EE 6. The closing session for the conference was my talk on the JCP titled “A Look Inside the Java Community Process”. Towards the end of this session, Werner Keil from the JCP Executive Committee, joined in to present an update on Java SE 7 and 8. To conclude, all the JCP members present at the conference came on stage for the Q&A. The audience really enjoyed the JCP session and I received a lot of positive feedback on it.
I hope and look forward to presenting at the Java2Days conference again next year in beautiful, spirited, youthful Sofia, Bulgaria. It was also great to see my friends and fellow speakers Eugene Ciurana, John Willis, Josh Long, Arun Gupta, Vladimir Pavlov, Talip Ozturk, Andrew Lombardi, Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine, Werner Keil, Sasa Slavnic and many others.
JavaOne 2010 conference recap by Reza Rahman
JavaOne was very eventful for Caucho. We had great booth traffic with heavy interest in Resin’s Java EE 6 Web Profile and the work we’ve done around CDI, Cloud computing, Quercus and Hessian. Caucho® engineers, Reza Rahman and Emil Ong, were quite impressed with the volume of attendance in their presentations, panel and BOFs sessions. Reza and Emil had full sessions with many genuinely curious and reaffirming questions about the Resin application server development work and plans going forward. Notably Resin’s implementation of CDI mirrors developer’s interests in what should be included in Java EE 7. Thank you everyone who came by our booth or attended the sessions.
Resource allocation efficiency and reduced downtime with Heartbeat Cluster Service
Resin 4.0.12 makes synchronization and communication between clustered servers simpler and more productive. The Resin Triad server configuration acts as a triple-redundant hub for the cluster model. It uses the heartbeat service for monitoring server availability with regular minute heartbeats signaling if and when servers are down for immediate reallocation of resources and to take appropriate measures. In reverse, once the failed server becomes available again, the Heartbeat will initialize the triad configuration. The Heartbeat Cluster Service ensures high application performance in time of uncertain hardware and software changes or failure.
