OpenAjax Hub 1.0 and InteropFest

OpenAjax Alliance has made substantial progress in the last 12 months since its inception

Coach Wei's Blog

OpenAjax Alliance has made substantial progress in the last 12 months since its inception. The cornerstone is OpenAjaxHub 1.0 (OaaHub 1.0).

OaaHub 1.0, an open source project under Apache V2 license,  focuses on interoperability - it enables different Ajax components to inter-operate with each other using a "pub/sub" mechanism while these Ajax components may have no knowledge of each other at all. OaaHub 1.0 is extremely small (6KB, uncompressed, and with comments) but it is powerful and extremely useful for building Ajax applications.

The power and the adoption of OaaHub 1.0 are both demonstrated at OpenAjax InteropFest, to be hosted alongside the coming AjaxWorld Conference. At the time of writing this post, there are 17 Ajax toolkits participating the InteropFest. These toolkits are:

  1. Apache XAP (http://incubator.apache.org/xap)
  2. Dojo Toolkit (http://www.dojotoolkit.com)
  3. Ext (http://www.extjs.com)
  4. ILOG JViews (http://jviews.ilog.com)
  5. IT Mill Toolkit (http://www.itmill.com)
  6. JQuery (http://jquery.com)
  7. Lightstreamer (http://www.lightstreamer.com)
  8. Microsoft Ajax Library (http://ajax.asp.net)
  9. Nexaweb Ajax Client (http://www.nexaweb.com)
  10. OAT: OpenLink AJAX Toolkit (http://oat.openlinksw.com/)
  11. OpenSpot CalcDesk (http://www.openspot.com/)
  12. Prototype (http://www.prototypejs.org/)
  13. script.aculo.us (http://script.aculo.us/)
  14. Software AG's webMethods Composite Application Framework (wM CAF) (http://www.webmethods.com/Products/CAF)
  15. TIBCO General Interface Professional Open Source Ajax Toolkit (http://developer.tibco.com/gi)
  16. 24SevenOffice Vili (Ajax toolkit from 24SevenOffice)
  17. YUI (http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/)

Note some of these are OpenAjax members and some are not. Some of these are open source and some are not. They represent the leading Ajax offerings in the market today. The ability to enable all these offerings to work with other components, without requiring these offerings to be modified or changed,  speak well to the technical merits of OpenAjaxHub 1.0.

I had fun participating the InteropFest myself. In my sample application, a "data generation" component provided by OpenAjax Alliance, Nexaweb Ajax Client, and OpenAjax Hub are all wired together using the "pub/sub" mechanism. The "data generation" component generates and publishes simulated stock quotes. A managed client object called "DataVisualMco" (implemented using Javascript), loaded and managed by Nexaweb Ajax Client,  subscribes to this topic when it is being initialized

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
