RE: [dotnet-120] Volta

Hi Kevin,

 

I’m sure I’ll come off here a bit like a used car salesman, but this approach to distributed computing is what Spring has been doing for a while (at least in spirit but not the details).  A standard local object is proxied to adapt the object to partake in a particular middleware platform.  There are corresponding client side proxies as well.  Security, logging, and other behavior is then added to these proxies via AOP.  So you develop in much the same way as is suggested with Volta, everything is a local object, you take care to think about chatty interfaces, and get the whole things working.  Then you start moving the objects out of processes as needed.

 

I read your blog, and Volta is on my ‘to-do’ list, but I never found that it took an inordinate amount of time to configure these proxies to adapt local object to a distributed technology.  Using attributes instead of XML for the proxy metadata would make for more terse configuration in many cases but at the cost of ‘coupling’ your objects to these 3rd party attributes.

 

Background reading on the .NET side would be

 

http://www.springframework.net/doc-latest/reference/html/psa-intro.html

 

and an example

 

http://www.springframework.net/doc-latest/reference/html/remoting-quickstart.html

 

And there are similar ref docs on the Java side as well.

 

I’d be very interested to hear your opinion on this approach.

 

Cheers,

Mark

 

Looking forward to you CLINQ talk next week!

I've been writing random test apps on Volta since the CTP came out a couple weeks ago. I've also had a couple of conversations with Erik Meijer, the lead architect there. I did a few blog posts on it. Right now I'm in a holding pattern trying to find a good proof of concept app to try out the technology in a more than "hello world" fashion.

Does anybody have real experience with it?

The name of the tech I could remember is Volta

Looks worth a look at least.

 

On other topics - I’m wondering what the etiquette is on post jobs to this list? Verboten; allowed, but frowned on; welcome with open arms?
