Speakers and Talks:
Main: Christophe Lombart – The Document & Content Management Ecosystem, a gentle introduction to the ECM technologies
Christophe has more than 16 years of IT experience and is currently focusing on technical analysis, software architecture, teaching & development around content and web technologies. He is also very active in the open-source community and committer on the Apache Sling and the Apache Jackrabbit projects. Moreover, he is one of the founder of the Objectif-Web project.
This presentation is an introduction on the main ECM concepts and technologies . We will start with an ECM definition and give information on the most popular use cases. The goal of this first part is to highlight the ECM features & challenges. We will also discuss about some interesting Web 2.0 concepts that could be used in a content oriented application. Finally, we will make a market overview and give more information of the newest “content technology” standards.
The second part of the presentation will provide more technical information on content repository. In order to understand its great benefit, we will compare it with a classic file system and a relational database. We will also provide more details on the JCR specification, which is certainly changing the ECM market. JCR stands for Content Repository API for Java, a specification that has been developed under the Java Community Process as JSR-170 (Version 1) and as JSR-283 (Version 2, main Java package is javax.jcr).
At the end, we will see the ECM standards in action within a simple demo based on Jackrabbit (the content repository provided by the Apache Sofware Foundation).
This will not be the last time Christophe will speak for us. Besides his presentation about ECM and introduction to the “Content Repository API for Java” and Jackrabbit, he proposes to inaugurate us into the clockwork of the Apache Software Foundation by explaining us how the ASF is organized and why its projects are always a great success. Moreover he wants us to step beyond the usual “Struts/Flex or whatever – Spring – Hibernate – RDBMS” stack for building web and content based applications by seeing other possibilities in the Java World. And of course there are … More about this after the summer holidays!
Short: John Rizzo about the Black Belt Factory and the partnership with the Brussels JUG
John Rizzo is co-founder and CEO of Black Belt Factory. Foremost, he will introduce the operation mode and the purposes of the BBF community learning site and then he will explain in which way you as JUG members will be able to benefit from our partnership with the BBF.
