Digging the Trenches on the Ninth Level of Hell

My talk at last year’s Spring Experience talk on the next generation of application server architecture is available here.
The talk is about OSGi and how the next generation of application server platforms will simply do away with the cumbersome and rather dated component models that we all know and hate in favor of the vastly superior OSGi platform. Or that’s the theory at least. Only time will tell if I’m correct or just another mad hatter sniffing too much mercury outgassing from the various toys littering his office.
In addition, I also lay out the management architecture I’ve been experimenting with for the past year. Obviously, it uses OSGi as its base, but OSGi – by itself – isn’t sufficient to provide the kind of management infrastructure you need to manage large numbers of processes. I call this management architecture – for lack of a better name – Event Driven Autonomic Management. I’ll be kicking off a series of posts going into far more detail on this architecture as a means of documenting the research I’ve been doing.
Think of it as therapy, as talking about it on this blog – posting, so to speak, to the wind about concepts and issues that no one else seems to find terribly interesting or useful. You can tell I’m a great hit at parties, can’t you?
