Carbon and Stratos: understanding cloud-enabled modular middleware

WSO2 Carbon and Stratos provides a complete middleware platform for Enterprise computing: from on-premise to a full cloud-enabled runtime. In this session we will spend the morning looking at the Carbon platform - including leading ESB, AppServer, Governance Registry and more. In the afternoon we will look at the way this runtime is also available in a multi-tenant scalable, elastic architecture. This session will cover SOA and Cloud middleware, PaaS as well as digging deep into Cloud concepts.

This hands-on workshop provides a real opportunity to understand Carbon, OSGi middleware, PaaS, Stratos, and get going with a Cloud Platform. StratosLive is a complete running platform in the cloud, and participants will be encouraged to set up a tenant using their laptops during the workshop, and will understand how to install and use Stratos in a Private PaaS environment.

    How do the main components in Carbon fit together, what are the benefits of an ESB-based approach. Integration and SOA. Governance and monitoring.

  • Business Process Management (BPM)

    Tammo will briefly introduce Business Process Management (BPM) and will motivate the need for Business Process Execution. This session will give a short introduction to the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) on the business level and an overview of concepts and elements of the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) on the technical level.

    It will also introduce Apache ODE, a state-of-the-art open source BPEL engine, which powers several open commercial BPM products. Besides the key features and the architecture, some useful extensions, which ease the work with the BPEL standard, will be shown.
