* Get introduced to a pattern language for Integration of Mission Critical System of Systems, * Understand the implementation of these patterns as provided by the OpenSplice Gateway.
An increasing number of mission- and business-critical systems rely on the OMG DDS as the technology for distributing and managing data. DDS trivializes systems integration in those cases where a shared data model exists. Yet, integrating DDS-based systems that rely on different information models, or DDS-based systems with systems that use other technologies is today performed either point-to-point, or taking advantage of integration technologies such as Enterprise Service Bus (ESB). None of these approaches is optimal for mission- or business-critical applications because of the quadratic complexity of point-to-point integration, and because of the inefficiency and lack of QoS preservation and transformation of ESBs. With the trend toward Systems of Systems and the increasing need for sharing information across multiple systems and technologies these limitations are no longer sustainable either from a cost or from a time-to-market perspective.
At the same time, well architected System of Systems often rely on the same language of Integration Patterns in order to deal with problems that stem from systems asymmetry, data aggregation, correlation, sampling, data projections, etc.
This webcast will (1) introduce a pattern language for Integration of Mission Critical System of Systems, (2) explain for each pattern the problem it solves, the context in which it arises and how the conflicting forces are often balanced, and (3) demonstrate an implementation of these patterns as provided by the OpenSplice Gateway route definition DSL.
