This session describes the architecture of the GreenFire project, especially: - Usage of JSR-223 (Scripting Integration) in Java EE 6 / 6 environment for the implementation of flexible rule systems - Reporting - Using EJB 3 timer service - Java EE compatible hardware integration - SunSPOT and sensor network integration - Using Java FX together with Swing and EJB 3 - Sensor Testing (with Junit and mocking) - Speech synthesizer integration (FreeTTS) - Management and monitoring of heating system over the internet - Mobile device Integration - Integration of Multi Media Center Systems
Wonderland is an interesting 3D collaboration application. It uses the darkstar server as backend. Project http://underworld.dev.java.net goal is porting the Wonderland's communication and persistence layer to Glassfish v2 (later v3) to leverage its non-functional capabilities like monitoring, management, deployment and scaleability. In this shorttalk, especially the architecture and design, as well as, challenges, hacks, and workarounds will be discussed.
