The next meetup is about quite interesting and practical subject. People use code repositories for managing sources, but often don't think that the binaries need repositories too. This is what an open source Artifactory from jFrog is about. This software won the Duke award at JavaOne 2011. The speaker is flying from Israel to San Francisco to JavaOne conference, and he kindly agreed to make a stop in New Jersey and present at Princeton JUG.
Taking traditional Java server-side applications to the multi-tenant Cloud introduces lots of challenges. In this session, we will share our experience of creating a SaaS offering, which is currently being used successfully by the Java community. We will start by reviewing the challenges we faced during the SaaS conversion. Next, we will share our experience with the EC2 platform. We will discuss the importance of automation and how we use tools like Chef and Puppet for SaaS provisioning. Finally, we will describe how creating a SaaS version of our product shifted our way of thinking about software release. We will recommend what’s required to successfully release both SaaS and downloadable versions of your product.
Baruch Sadogursky is hacking around Java technologies and Continuous-Integration tools since 2001, including development for open source projects like Gradle & Spring. He is also active in community development around Artifactory, participating in the development of it’s plugin ecosystem and enriching it’s functionality with open-source user plugins. As JFrog’s Developer Advocate, Baruch contributes to the strong collaboration with leading open-source projects such as SpringSource, Grails and Gradle by providing them with the Artifactory Cloud platform, and fuels the Continuous-Integration ecosystem with open-source plugins for leading tools such as Jenkins, TeamCity & Bamboo.Baruch blogs at http://blogs.jfrog.org tweets as @jbaruch.
