* Learn the key concepts and abstractions provided by Vortex Café. * Understand how the Vortex Café Staged Event Driven Architecture can be exploited to optimize deployment on multi-core and embedded processors. * Get started writing distributed applications in Java and Scala with Vortex Café.
In the past few years we have experienced an amazing proliferation of mobile and embedded platforms. Contemporary developers are increasingly being faced with the challenge of writing applications that can run on desktop, mobile (e.g. Android and iOS), and on low-cost embedded platforms (e.g. Raspberry-Pi and Beaglebone). This is causing a rejuvenated interest in the Java platform as a means to achieve the holy grail of write-once and run-everywhere. With the availability of Java environments supporting almost any kind of device in several different form factors, the missing element of the picture is an effective way of enabling communication between them.
Vortex Café is a pure Java implementation of the OMG Data Distribution Service (DDS) that enables seamless, efficient and timely data sharing across multi-core machines, mobile and embedded devices.
This webcast will (1) introduce the main abstractions provided by Vortex Café, (2) provide an overview of its architecture and explain how it exploits Staged Event Driven Architectures to optimize its runtime behavior depending on the target hardware, (3) provide an overview of the typical performance delivered by Vortex Café, and (4) get you started developing distributed Java and Scala applications with Vortex Café.
