ABSTRACT: 2010: An Acronym Odyssey
This is a one-stop shop for buzzword bingo as we take a whirl wind tour of Enterprise Java development standards and technologies that may take hold over the next couple years. Specifically, we’ll take a look at OSGi, Service Component Architectures (SCA) and Java Business Integration (JBI) in the pursuit of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) via Enterprise Service Buses (ESB).
Contrary to popular belief, these specifications are not necessarily competing. We’ll prove that out as we go through concrete examples of each. Addtionally, we’ll identify what each specification does well, and how and where each falls in the highly sought after holy grail of enterprise application integration.
