First up, my WebSphere Emerge teammate Charlie Le Vay will give a live demo of HTTP session caching and fail-over capabilities provided by the IBM Datapower XC10 appliance. He recently published a top ten FAQ about the appliance based on workshops he has given recently. Bring your questions about elastic caching to the meeting for Charlie.
For the reminder of the meeting, we are hosting a hands-on lab to give developers a chance to try the OSGi tooling available for WebSphere Application Server. This lab will provide a good look at importing, deploying, managing and developing application bundles with Rational Application Developer Standard Edition 8.0. The lab will also touch on JPA. Your co-hosts for this lab are Nichole Stewart from the WebSphere system test team, Lin Sun from the WebSphere OSGi / JPA Feature Pack development team and Apache Aries project, and myself, Ryan Boyles, your friendly neighborhood technical evangelist.
The meeting will be held Tuesday November 30 at 6pm. You can RSVP for the meeting on the Triangle group event page of the WebSphereUserGroup.org website. Food and drinks will be provided as usual. Thanks also to organizers Greg Ackerman and Ken Gelsinger for assisting with lab set-up. As a convenience for you, I've linked each of our names to our WebSphereUserGroup.org profiles.
See you there,
