Jan Rellermeyer and I are going to present ECF at the OSGi community event in Berlin. The talk is titled "Distributed OSGi Services with the Eclipse Communication Framework (ECF)" and the abstract reads as follows:
The Eclipse Communication Framework will soon go into version 2.0, which will bring the concepts around distributed OSGi services to the mainstream Eclipse developers. In this talk, we will introduce the various tools and concepts that ECF provides the users with. Different service discovery protocols like SLP and mDNS are available for finding remote services in the network. The interaction with remote services is supported through distributed shared objects or the R-OSGi system. On top, applications can either access remote services completely transparently, or take advantage of an explicit API that allows advanced interaction patterns like asynchronous calls or futures. We will compare the ECF API with other related concepts and the ongoing efforts around RFC 119.
In case you're in the area, make sure to attend. The speakers list includes the who is who of the OSGi community and I'm honored to be given the chance to present the work we've done in ECF. :-)
