OpenPortal @ Glassfish Day Hyderabad

SunTechDaysHyderabad The three days at Sun Tech Days walked through an interesting keynote by Rich Green(Executive Vice President, Sun Microsystems). Rich described how JDK, MySQL , xVM, GlassFish, NetBeans, Solaris and many other similar offerings provide a comprehensive suite of products that cover the entire portfolio of software. He talked about how Sun Campus Ambassadors, out of which around 20% being from India, will play a major role in the future. He also focussed on reusability.

 

The first day also saw a concert hosted by a popular rock-band in India, namely "Euphoria".
The second day hosted a lot of talks especially the ones around masshups, SOA, BPEL interested me. On the Glassfish day I presented the talk on wholistic features of "OpenPortal" saw an attendance of 400+ developers. Extra chairs had to be ordered to accomodate the crowd in the auditorium which had a capacity of around 400. Have a look below at the Glassfish Day Audience.

I was anticipating lot of questions comparing OpenPortal with other portals, however folks were more interested around the Enterprise features of OpenPortal.
Specifically lot of interest around SAW and jBOSS. There was an interesting use case around WSRP. Interest was expressed around BPEL, OpenESB Integration with OpenPortal, Eclipse plugin equivalents for PortalPack and SAW/Mirage NetBeans plugin.
Many of the audiences openly appreciated the talk by inclining to contribute towards some feature or the other or to download it.

If anyone's watching over OpenPortal or ThePortalPost hits, I am sure they would have increased after Friday.

SAW is Ready

SAW Binaries ReleaseIn an effort to enable workflow functionality within products, SAW was conceived. However, a value added feature that has emerged out of it is that it abstracts the interaction with different workflow engines. As the diagram in Understanding SAW guide depicts, the intent of SAW is to be able to integrate with different workflow engines, thereby keeping the product using SAW pretty oblivious to changes.
Currently, SAW comes with a default integration with Java CAPS. For folks having Java CAPS(5.1.3) installation, it should be a matter of minutes to get the client stubs required to perform workflow. After having defined  a simple workflow as indicated in my article Incorporating Workflow into Portals with Sun Java CAPS, they should be able to play around with SAW. Ofcourse, alternatively, SAW User Guide offers a typical way of using SAW.
I am sure many of the developer friends will be interested in knowing more about SAW's details. And this is precisely why, the Java Docs are there too.
I invite/request you all to go through all this exhaustive material that we have around SAW and explore/give feedback at users@saw.dev.java.net , join SAW and help enrich it.
