Geronimo Track US 09
Project Management Committee: Geronimo
Subprojects covered by Track:
PMC Liason/Spokesorganizer(s): Kevan Miller
Planning Team Mentor & Liason: Jean-Frederic Clere
Apache Geronimo is a lightweight, flexible, component-based server for building dynamic application server environments. Geronimo plugins can be assembled into a fully compliant Java EE Server. However, it can be easily assembled into a server providing a subset of functionality or a minimal subset required to meet the specific requirements of a set of applications.
This track will be oriented towards users of Geronimo. Although some introductory material will be covered, a large portion of the talks will be oriented towards advanced users. Some knowledge of Geronimo will be helpful.

END OF PROGRAM
Apache Geronimo 2.2
Speakers: David Jencks and Vamsavardhana Reddy Chillakuru
This talk will provide an overview of the Geronimo 2.2 release. Along with providing an overview of the new features found in 2.2, the talk will also discuss Geronimo Custom Assemblies and Application Security. Geronimo makes it easy to assemble a custom server around your applications, including only those features needed to run your apps. We'll see how to use maven to integrate this into your build process. Also, Apache Geronimo enables storing user credentials in a variety of data stores viz., simple text files, a database, an LDAP server and digital certificates. In this session we see how these data stores can be used to configure application security and how the necessary infrastructure can be run in Apache Geronimo itself.
OSGi Blueprint Container Specification and Geronimo
Speaker: Jarek Gawor
This talk will provide a general overview of the Blueprint Container Specification and demonstrate some of its core features using Geronimo's Blueprint Container implementation. The talk will also describe some more advanced features of the Geronimo implementation such as Configuration Admin Service support and custom namespace handlers. Future plans will be discussed as well as how the Blueprint Container might be used and integrated within the existing Geronimo Kernel.
