SOA Pattern of the Week (#3): Domain Inventory

Enterprise-wide harmonization is a desirable and ideal target state that fully supports pretty much everything SOA and service-orientation stand for. For those that have achieved such a state, bless your standardized hearts. You have accomplished something that has eluded many others. However, not attaining this state does not mean you cannot successfully adopt SOA. In some circles it has become common to view an SOA initiative as an all-or-nothing proposition that demands an uncompromising commitment to an enterprise-wide transformation effort. For those that subscribe to this view, it can inspire visions of architects choking at the thought of having to comply to global data models, IT managers losing sleep over having to give up authority over their departments, and rebellious developers being rounded up by the standards police (equipped with industry-standard rio...

Cross-Platform Mobile Game Development – a Tool Comparison

Mobile game development has a world of its own. You will come across different set of programming languages which you would not have encountered elsewhere – Lua, Live Code, Unreal Script, Boo etc. Some of these tools are a derivative or an extension of what is available on other gaming platform while others have been explicitly developed for mobile. At least one of these platform may seize to become a game development platform and become an enterprise cross-platform mobile application development solution. As I have mentioned earlier (here it is), there are five approaches to cross platform mobile application development and many tools are available under each category. They are: Mobile Web (JavaScript-CSS library), Visual Tool (No access to Code), App Generator (Native application for multiple platforms) Hybrid App (Leverages embedded browser control) Game Builder...

The Attack of Oracle Guest

Last October I published a post that identified the features that both JBoss Data Grid and Oracle Coherence provide (link). My goal was to establish a baseline for the features that a data grid should provide. It was not to state that one data grid was better than the other. Little did I know an Oracle employee would respond by attacking Red Hat, its engineers, and myself. It is fear? Is it hostility? I don’t know. I have engaged in discussions with competitors before. Roman and I engaged in a competitive discussion in response to one of my posts comparing IBM WebSphere and JBoss EAP (link). However, we both conducted ourselves in a professional manner. I’ve engaged in competitive discussions with Spring evangelists, but we focused on the technology. I always enjoy reading the discussions between Cameron, Nikita, and Nati on the TheServerSide. I find their discussi... (more)

In 2014 Big Data Investments Will Account for Nearly $30 Billion - Eventually Accounting for $76 Billion by 2020 End

Data.gov Will Redefine Data-as-a-Service

I’ve been in several meetings recently that have hit on the topic of Data.gov.  Data.gov will become a repository for all the information the government collects, and that information will be in turn available to anyone who needs it.   Pretty positive move, if you ask me.   However, the existing data-as-a-service providers that traffic in government data could find that they are soon suffering from relevancy problems.  The core issue is that many existing data-as-a-service players make their living from publishing reconstituted, and cleansed, government data that they charge for.    The rise of Data.gov will mean the commoditization of this information, which will be accessible, both through visual interfaces, and using APIs (Web services), if I understand the government’s vision here.  Thus, overnight Data.gov could become the mother of all data-as-a-service sites, p...

Oracle 11g Fusion Middleware LiveBlogging and News Analysis

Java is the new SQL We're on a code level orange this morning as buzz on the networks is up. Despite Oracle's news embargo, we're already picking up chatter that one of the big ticket items from the Oracle Fusion Middleware launch is Tera-scale Java Object cacheing. This is a great technology trend and great thinking. While a few startup companies have attacked the so-called "Complex Event Processing" space (CEP), they have done so using esoteric APIs such as SQL query-like APIs for example StreamBase. This is an early-adopter (read:sucker) approach because who wants to build completely new applications? There's a clear answer to that rhetorical question: very few do. To see Coral8 be swallowed up by Aleri and other CEP vendors struggling out there, it's clear that only the edgy applications such as fraud and intrusion detection, networked battlefield, casino gami...

Business Process Modeling Notation 2.0

Weblogic Sessions at Cloud Expo OMG has approved the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN(TM)) 2.0 specification beta submission. OMG's Board of Directors approved the specification at the OMG Technical Meeting held in San Antonio, TX in September 2009. The finalization process for BPMN 2.0 is underway and the final version of the specification is expected to be adopted in mid 2010. The initial version of BPMN provided a graphical notation for specifying and documenting business processes with an emphasis on defining "orchestration processes." BPMN 1.x has been broadly adopted by the industry. OMG lists more than 60 implementations. However, BPMN 1.x did not define an interchange format to allow users to exchange models in a standard way between different tools nor did it include a native executable format. The BPMN 2.0 beta specification addresses these and im... (more)
