In this presentation we would like to introduce and demonstrate Amdatu, a new open source community project that is building an application platform for dynamic composite service oriented applications in the cloud.
The Amdatu Platform consists of a set of enabling services and application layer services and can run on public, private or hybrid (cloud-burst) environments. These services provide the foundation for any application built on the platform and consist of an OSGi framework that is cluster-ready, multi-tenant aware and can be accessed via a comprehensive set of REST based services. Applications can be dynamically assembled, monitored and managed.
The application layer services are available to any application running on the platform and include functionality like software and configuration provisioning, semantic indexing, search and recommendation, authentication and authorization, an open social implementation, extensive user and social network profiling and big data storage.
Amdatu leverages many Apache projects and hopes to join the Apache Incubator in the near future.
OSGi has become a key technology for modularity and this very dynamic platform is the best choice for creating containers as proven by the migration of all JEE servers toward OSGi. However, when it comes to deploying and managing huge deployments of OSGi based applications, the tools available are quite limited. This presentation will give you an overview of a solution for provisioning and configuring distributed OSGi based applications in such environments using Apache Karaf and Apache ZooKeeper.
