Things to do. Services to use.
I have been on the road in the past few weeks - talking with people about Portal Federation and WSRP (Documentum/EMC conference in Montreal, Business Objects conference in Dallas, my brother's wedding in Houston - lots of techies there).
Now I am back in Boulder catching up on things. On the to do list:
- Learn what's new on Java 5.0
- Follow WSRP 2.0 progress
- JSR 94, phase 2 starting soon
- JSR 170, almost done
- Amazon.com Simple Queue Services
- SAML, WS-Security
- Buy a Firefox t-shirt
- Ski pass
One of the most interesting items on the list is the new service from Amazon.com. From their site: "The Amazon Simple Queue Service offers a reliable, highly scalable hosted queue for buffering messages between distributed application components." and "The Amazon Simple Queue Service is free at this time. We anticipate charging for this service once it is officially released.".
Amazon.com the new hosted SOA platform!
