Speaker: Raffaele Spazzoli
What is your role at Imola?
I'm a consultant, article writer, and currently, the project manager of
jbi4cics and jbi4corba.
As a partner, how has your company contributed to the NetBeans
We have developed two plug-ins: one for jbi4corba and one for jbi4cics.
These plug-ins allow the component to be used at development/design
time in NetBeans SOA projects.
Tell us about your NetBeans Day Presentation.
We are going to present jbi4corba and jbi4cics binding components and
the relative NetBeans plug-in.
These binding components can be used to easily integrate CICS and CORBA
services in a JBI (jsr208) Enterprise Service Bus.
What's the top point that developers should know about your session?
Using NetBeans Enterprise platform and the jbi4corba and jbi4cics
plug-ins, it is very easy—
just a matter of visual configuration—to integrate CICS and CORBA
services. CICS is an IBM Mainframe Transaction Server very common in
Corba is the standard communication protocol from OMG and very common
in the telecommunication industry.
What are the benefits to the community?
A tangible speed-up in the development of SOA projects based on JBI and
What is the main message you want a developer to get after
attending your session?
Jbi4cics and Jbi4corba are ready and mature for Enterprise and can be
used in large SOA projects.
Why did you submit your session to be presented at NetBeans Day?
We think our project is a good contribution to the NetBeans enterprise
extension and being presented together may give more value to both.
What features do you enjoy working with in NetBeans?
We appreciate that NetBeans supports subversion and Maven—our standard
development tools—very well.
How does working in Java compare with other technologies?
We chose Java basically for the presence of standards, in this case
Other platforms have their Enterprise Service Buses, or Integration
Brokers, but there is no real mature standard apart from JBI. SCA
(Service Component Architecture), an emerging standard is sometimes
considered a JBI competitor. From my point of view, SCA and JBI
complete each other.
