Part 3 | Component Models in Java

Service Component Architecture (shortly referred as SCA) is a technology for creating services from components. SCA is a set of OASIS standards and part of it is developed with the collaboration of vendors from open source community, referred as "OSOA" Open SOA. SCA helps to build systems as a collection of interconnected components. The components created in SCA communicate through the services. The advantage of SCA is its neutral component model. It allows services to be built by any language component like Java, C++, BPEL, JavaScript, Ruby, Python etc. SCA addresses two important needs of component world: Complexity Reusability SCA is best suited model for distributed systems. SCA simplifies building of systems by simple assembling of components. SCA like other component model discussed in the previous sections facilitates component assembly in the middle tier -... (more)

[Update 2] WikiLeaks & Web 3.0 - A Commentary

[Further updated to include advance word of Jay Rosen/Dave Winer "Rebooting the Media" podcast - #75 coming Monday Dec 6] [Updated to include PayPal announcement of the closure of WikiLeaks' PayPal account.] Is Web 3.0 maybe going to be less the utopia we've been envisaging and more like the real, physical world, with all the real-world limitations that follow along with it...?

Sensationalized Press Coverage Will Not Kill the Cloud

You don’t have to be a techie to have heard about the challenges Amazon’s faced with its EC2 elastic cloud offering over the weekend. States of emergency were declared up and down the eastern seaboard after a destructive line of thunderstorms knocked out power in over 4 million homes — including Amazon’s East Coast cloud data center. The outage took down Netflix, Pinterest, Instagram and well-known cloud applications, as well as cutting off access to countless numbers of businesses whose names we might never know. Since then, media and social media have been speculating on what this event says about the future of the cloud. It culminated in an article on Sunday in the New York Times by Quentin Hardy, in which he states that the outage “underlined how businesses and consumers are increasingly exposed to unforeseen risks and wrenching disruptions as they increasingly...
