Session Summaries

413 Tapestry 5: Java Power, Scripting Ease!

Presentation, 50 minutes by Howard M. Lewis Ship, Wednesday 10:00 - 10:50

  • The Apache Tapestry web framework has been making a name for itself in terms of innovative features and ease of use. In this session, we'll introduce the goals of the Tapestry framework: Simplicity, Consistency, Efficiency and Feedback. We'll discuss the challenges of building modern, Web 2.0 applications and the two main approaches: action-oriented and component-oriented. We'll show the advantages of the component-oriented approach, especially as implemented in Tapestry. Tapestry includes many developer productivity features, including live class reloading and convention over configuration: we'll show how these result in minute amounts of code to accomplish big goals, and how Tapestry brings scripting language productivity within reach of Java developers without sacrificing any of Java's inherent speed and power.

332: An Introduction to Apache Velocity 1.6

Presentation, 50 minutes by Henning Schmiedehausen, Wednesday 11:15 - 12:05

  • Apache Velocity is mostly considered an exciting alternative to the ubiquitous Java Server pages for web apps. But Velocity is much more. As a general purpose templating engine written in Java it is at the heart of code generators, mass mail senders or documentation frameworks. This talk gives an overview over the language features and the integration of Velocity into your own applications.

509: Introduction to Wicket

Presentation, 50 minutes by Jeremy Thomerson, Wednesday 14:30 - 15:20

  • Apache Wicket is a component oriented Java web application framework that brings back object oriented programming to the Web. With just HTML and Java, Wicket gives designers and programmers a tool they can work together in. In this session you'll be introduced to Wicket's programming model, and we'll quickly go from simple components, form processing and providing feedback to integrating with Spring and Guice, securing, testing and deploying your application. A lot of ground to cover but the best way to learn everything you wanted to know about Wicket.

462: What's new in Roller 5.0

Presentation, 50 minutes by Dave Johnson, Wednesday 16:00 - 16:50

  • We'll cover the features of Apache Roller 5.0 (to be released Summer 2009) and how it compares to other blog server options, typical deployment architectures and examples of Roller sites in production today. Ongoing student-driven work on !OpenID and better Media Blogging support will be disucssed in detail. And, you'll learn how blog software is changing and adapting to incorporate Social Networking features such as profiles, friend relationships and social gadgets and how you can use

    Apache Shindig and Project SocialSite to add these features to Roller.

334: Empowering the social web with Apache Shindig

Presentation, 50 minutes by Paul Lindner, Wednesday 17:00 - 17:50

  • The social web is already reality and it makes applications available to more users by providing common APIs that can be used in many

    different contexts. OpenSocial is an API that can be used by developers to create applications, using standard JavaScript and HTML. These applications run on social websites that have implemented the OpenSocial APIs. Such websites, known as OpenSocial containers, allow developers to access their social information; in return they receive a large suite of applications for their users. Apache Shindig is a brand new incubator podling implementing the OpenSocial APIs. This talk describes Shindig in depth and shows how it can be embedded into a larger web application to enable it to host OpenSocial apps.

545: Content Driven Portals with Jetspeed and Jackrabbit

Presentation, 50 minutes by David S Taylor, Thursday 10:00 - 10:50

  • If you are looking for a solution that provides end to end content management and portal based delivery, all under a business friendly, open source Apache license, this presentation is for you. Target audience is for software developers, system integrators and managers interested in Apache's offerings of Open Source Portal and Enterprise Content technologies. This one hour presentation will be short on theory and high on live demonstrations of the Jetspeed and Jackrabbit projects. (Jetspeed is the portal, Jackrabbit is the Java Content Repository (JCR)). Features discussed and demonstrated include:
    • Content Creation - A look at how to create content with Jackrabbit and a CMS
    • Portal Site Management - navigating over content in Jetspeed
    • Content Management - managing content with an advanced, open source Content Management System
    • Content Delivery - delivering enterprise content in Java standard portlets alongside enterprise applications
    • Tools - working with a JCR Site Toolkit to rapidly develop content-based applications that run transparently in a portal and in plain websites
    Using Jetspeed + Jackrabbit + Site Toolkit, a demo will be given showing how to rapidly develop a collaborative enterprise application.

395: JCR in Action - Content-based Applications with Jackrabbit

Presentation, 50 minutes by Carsten Ziegeler, Thursday 11:15 - 12:05

  • The Java Content Repository API (JCR) is the ideal solution to store hierarchical structured content and develop content-oriented applications. This session provides a practical introduction to quickstart with JCR in your own application. To demonstrate the basic architecture of such applications, an example content-based application will be developed during the session. Basic techniques will be explained including navigation, searching and observations by using the Apache Jackrabbit project.

408: Rapid JCR applications development with Sling

Presentation, 50 minutes by Felix Meschberger, Thursday 14:30 - 15:20

  • Sling is an OSGi-based scriptable applications layer, based on REST principles, that runs on top of a JCR content repository. In this talk, we'll see how Sling enables rapid development of JCR-based content applications, by leveraging the JSR 223 scripting framework along with the rich set of OSGi components provided by Sling. We will create a simple application from scratch in a few minutes, and explain a more complex multimedia application that does a lot with few lines of code. This talk will help you get started with Sling and understand how the different components fit together.

550: CouchDB from 10,000 feet

Presentation, 50 minutes by J. Chris Anderson, Thursday 16:00 - 16:50

  • This presentation takes a look at CouchDB from 10,000 ft. We try not to lose you in technical details and paint the big picture that you need to understand CouchDB's strengths and weaknesses. CouchDB is a document oriented database. It does not adhere to the relational principles of traditional databases. You will learn what that means for your application design. CouchDB's replication support solves the problems of high-traffic web sites, distributed peer-to-peer, and offline applications all at the same time. We show you what kind of applications you are able to build with that. However, CouchDB is no Silver Bullet and there are cases where it is a poor fit. You will learn to decide when to use it for your project and when you are better off with a different solution.

466: Apache POI recipes

Presentation, 50 minutes by Paolo Mottadelli, Thursday 17:00 - 17:50

  • The Apache POI project (http://poi.apache.org) provides Open Source Java APIs for the manipulation of Microsoft Office format files. It was developed to provide OLE2 Compound Document format support. POI support for the new format was necessitated by the proliferation of new Office Open XML (OOXML) documents, due to its standardization driven by Microsoft Office 2007. As a result, a common challenge emerged for projects that leverage POI to read and write Excel, Word, and PowerPoint documents: supporting the new format while maintaining backward compatibility with the earlier one. This session provides an overview of how the new POI architecture makes that challenge easier through the common interfaces package and their double implementation. Participants will also learn about the main new features provided by POI towards the new OOXML format support. To demonstrate POI's features, this session will also drive throught a collection of practical recipes to solve the tough problems of integrating Office documents in your enterprise applications.

Questions and Answers

Input from conference planners

SUGGESTIONS

  • People pay to see the scheduled content at ApacheCon. Provide material which will reach and attract our paying audience. If you have Geeks for Geeks content to present, please save that for the daytime un-con tracks, or evening !MeetUps/BOFs. Consider that people attending the main tracks probably need to have a clear business case for registration costs - but your community are free to attend the free evening programming (and that's free as in beer!), so choose appropriately!

  • Work with your community. Some of the best presentations have been from presenters who don't belong to that project's PMC.
  • Be creative! You're not limited to the strict 50-minute-sessions model. You can organize the schedule in whatever way makes the most sense for your project's content. (Ensure that your attendees still get their coffee- and lunch-breaks and keynote sessions.)
  • The main track drives paid attendence, so you must submit well-written proposals. If the proposals are not clearly written, and answer "Who, What, and Why?", then what can be expected of the presentations? We've reviewed the proposals that were received in the main CFP, and they accompany this email. You can use these verbatim (appropriately edited for spelling/to fit the program!), or work with the submitters to refine them to work better within the track you're planning and/or solicit completely new proposals. Use whichever solution creates the most effective program.
  • During the day, we will run un-con tracks on Wednesday through Friday in smaller rooms (capacity ~50), also coordinated by PMCs. They do not need to be formalized until the morning of the track, but guidance for the prospective audience can be gathered on the un-con tracks' wiki pages. Registration will be required to attend these parallel tracks, but they're a great place to schedule the Geeks4Geeks content that's really interesting for a narrower audience.

FREE STUFF!

During the day, on Monday and Tuesday, we will run a free BarCamp alongside the traditional Hackathon. The space set aside for the BarCamp and Hackathon is truly massive, and should have a very open feel without excessive background noise. By colocating these events, we can enable attendees to jump between hacking together and attending BarCamp sessions.

Free evening activities include MeetUps and BOFs. These will be organized by the PMCs, and can be scheduled for any night from Sunday through Thursday. Wednesday night is set aside for the free BIG FEATHER BIRTHDAY BASH! and Welcome Reception. We expect to attract many commuting attendees from the Bay Area, both for the main program (paid registration required) and for all of these free events and opportunities.

REALITY CHECK

Of course the economic realities do not permit the Conference Producer to cover the costs of everyone who has information to present to such a diverse audience of this many topics. For this conference, for each hour of main track material, the Producer will be covering one (1) hotel night plus one (1) conference pass, and will provide an additional (1) night for overseas travelers. However, the conference will not be paying airfare for speakers from the US and Canada, and will work on a limited case-by-case basis with those from overseas. And with so many friends in the Bay Area, those who are not covered can consider staying with fellow ASF members who are willing to host.

If you're not sure how this will work for you, or what it means when you start getting creative with the program, please check with your planning-mentor.

AND FINALLY

If you need help or guidance, you can contact the planning team any time on planners-2009-us@apachecon.com

You've also been assigned a planning-mentor, who's there as your PMC's personal support system for this conference as mentioned above.

We're looking forward to the most exciting ApacheCon ever, but we need your help to do it!
