Subject: Potential JavaOne abstract

My AI from last week was to come up with a proposed abstract for JavaOne that would allow us to continue to evangelize about it, but not repeat what was done at last years JavaOne. Here's my first draft. The aim is to try to give each of the panelists a chance to say something about SCA (maybe each panelist concentrating on one specific technical committee within OpenCSA) whilst at the same time giving scope to show how things have evolved in a year and where they are continuing to evolve. From feedback I've had over the past few months, I think it would be good if we could use this session to say more about the relationships we're forming with other standards activities, such as OSGi, as well as getting end-user presence on the panel.

I need to make it clear that this is NOT a JBI versus SCA debating panel: if someone on the panel wants to call out JBI specifically when making a presentation, then that should be encouraged as long as it is in line with the overall thrust of the panel session.

1a) Building Enterprise Applications using SOA with SCA 

- a discussion with panellists from the major contributors to the SCA specifications in OASIS

Title: OpenCSA: Open Standards for JEE and SOA

Abstract: In 2007 industry leaders including IBM, SAP, Oracle, BEA, Sun Microsystems and Red Hat took the SCA specifications to OASIS and formed a number of technical committees under the OpenCSA banner, to drive them towards standards. There have been, and continue to be, many questions about SCA and its relationship to other standards such as WS-*, JBI, OSGi and JEE. The purpose of this panel session is to try to answer these questions and provide insight into what has changed with SCA since the first release, where the various OpenCSA specifications are heading and what affect this will have on JEE-based SOA development in the future. In this panel session we shall discuss the evolution of SCA since it started the standards process and touch on the current products (commercial and open source) that are tracking those changes. Because the panel will consist of end-users of SCA as well as members of the various technical committees, there will be an opportunity for feedback on how well the existing SCA implementations address their requirements and where necessary, improvements  can still be made. Furthermore, the panelists will look at how OpenCSA work is influencing and influenced by other standards that you may be using today, or considering using, for building enterprise SOA deployments.

The panel session shall cover the following topics:

- updates on SCA specifications since they entered OASIS
- end-user feedback on deployments based on SCA
- relationship with other standards efforts
- future developments around the specifications and implementations

There will be opportunity for audience participation.


P.S. We can discuss panel members as soon as we have an abstract.
