Today's sessions started with a keynote address by SImon Phipps from Sun on the benefits of open source software. Simon emphasised on the importance of community-based ownership and the different models behind open source software development. There were a whole variety of other interesting sessions including message-based architecture, an update on Spring 2.0, WSRP, JBI & Servicemix, JPA, transparent JVM clustering, space-based architecture etc.
The Serverside symposium in Europe kicked off in Barcelona, this morning. The first day included a variety of sessions on SOA, ESB, flow and continuations, AJAX & DWR, web services, BPM, EJB 3.0, TestNG etc. Since there were always three sessions running in parallel, it was difficult to cover all the topics that was being discussed. This is a quick overview of sessions I could attend.
