Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0 M1 Released

The Apache Tuscany team are pleased to announce the 2.0 M1 release of
the Java SCA project.

Apache Tuscany provides a runtime based on the Service Component
Architecture (SCA) which is a set of specifications aimed at
simplifying SOA Application Development. The SCA specifications are
being standardized at OASIS as part of the Open Composite Services
Architecture (Open CSA).

The Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0-M1 release is the first milestone on the
road to a full Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0 release. The goal of Apache
Tuscany SCA 2.0 is to provide an OSGi based SCA runtime that is
compliant with the OASIS SCA specifications.

With this first milestone release, a solid OSGi foundation is in place
to support the development, build, testing and deployment of Tuscany
modules and extensions following OSGi best practices. The first steps
have also been taken to incorporate the latest OASIS SCA draft

In subsequent milestone releases the compliance gap with the OASIS
specifications will continue to be narrowed and, now that the OSGi
infrastructure in place, OSGi/SCA integration at the application level
will be explored further.

Feature Overview

The Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0-M1 release includes implementations of the
main SCA specifications and some recent updates from Open CSA drafts including:

* SCA Assembly Model V1.0
* SCA Policy Framework V1.0
* SCA Java Common Annotations and APIs V1.0
* SCA Java Component Implementation V1.0
* SCA Web Services Binding V1.0

It also includes implementations of features not yet defined
by SCA specifications, including:

* SCA bindings for RMI.
* Databindings for JAXB, Axis2's AXIOM, DOM, SAX and StAX

In milestone one Tuscany SCA supports the following host-deployment options: -

* running standalone
* running in a OSGi enabled runtime Environment (Equinox)
* running with distributed nodes across multiple JVMs but
without domain configuration support

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
