Microservices with Apache Karaf and Apache CXF: Practical Experience – Andrei Shakirin

Today Microservices architecture is widely recognized and accepted by a lot of development teams. At the same time the people realize that this architecture has some restrictions and challenges.

Interesting that Microservices and OSGi architectures are very close. The talk will analyse the core ideas of both architectures and shows the benefits provided by the OSGi Eco system for Microservices developer.

Based on practical experience, the presenter will demonstrate the best engineering practices in design and development Microservices with Apache Karaf (powered by OSGi) including modularity, resilience, continuous delivery and testability.

One important aspect of Microservices architecture is communication using lightweight mechanisms. Apache CXF is the perfect choice for this. The talk will show how to design, secure, customize and document your Microservices APIs using Apache CXF

OSGi for Outsiders – Milen Dyankov

OSGi has evolved and matured beyond recognition over the last few years. It’s now easier than ever before, to build dynamic, modular Java applications to address the challenges imposed by ever growing and constantly changing business requirements. Despite that, OSGi seems to be far from receiving the appreciation it deserves.

In this talk I’d like to go over what OSGi community is (not) doing to attract “outsiders”. I’d argue it can do better. Based on observations and conversation from the last 2 years trying to advocate for OSGi among Java developers, I’ll try to position OSGi it in today’s reality of microservices, containers, automation, Java 9, … and bring the perspective of an “outsider” together with all the presumptions, fallacies and promises. Finally I’d like to share some ideas about addressing those, promote relevant OSGi parts and perhaps make it more attractive.
