Dear OSEE community,|
Welcome to Eclipse. I'd like to introduce the Application Lifecycle Project
ALF is about tool integration, and relies on SOA as the mechanism for
development tools. It involves tools raising Events (as web services) which
filtered and routed by the ALF Event Manager, which logs and routes some
events to launch a BPEL process to synchronize data among development tools.
We also have a need for a common identity for users and have tool wrappers
to handle obtaining an identity token and conveying it through to the tools
launched as part of the BPEL process (we have worked closely with the
Higgins project and make use of their Token Server.) While ALF provides
some infrastructure for integrating development tools, it adds a data
on top of that, called ALF Vocabularies, in which we are defining the
events appropriate to coordinating tools across the application lifecycle.
ALF is an incubator project under the Technology top-level project and is
close to announcing
its 0.8 milestone release. You can learn more at www.eclipse.org/alf.
As I look a the OSEE slides, I see a number of areas of common interest, and
would like to initiate a dialog between our projects to identify touch
points, synergies, and areas of overlap.
