Chariot’s Aaron Mulder to Speak On Open Source Tools for SOA at 2009 JavaOne Conference


Philadelphia, PA (April 28, 2009) – Aaron Mulder, Chariot’s Chief Technology Officer, has been selected to present a Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) session
at the upcoming 2009 JavaOne Conference. His session titled “Kick-Start Your SOA with
Open-Source Tools” aims to inform the decision process of architects currently evaluating the benefits of implementing SOA within their organization.
The discussion will provide an overview of the latest open source tools that are driving innovation in the SOA space. Session participants will gain
a better understanding of the spectrum of products available and insight into the most advantageous deployment of the various technologies.

The BOF sessions have become a popular element of JavaOne as they feature smaller groups and more informal settings. Each BOF session focuses on a
single topic, but encourages an open, interactive atmosphere to provide participants the opportunity to gain a highly relevant background on the subject.
The format will allow Mr. Mulder to introduce and provide background on a variety of concepts related to the use of open tools in SOA strategies,
and then act as the room’s resident expert moderating the group’s collaborative exchange of ideas.

The session will provide a rundown and brief analysis of key tools in many SOA-related categories. Among the products slated for discussion are
Java™ Architecture for XML Binding (JAXB), SOAP and REST (CXF, Axis), ESBs (OpenESB, Mule, ServiceMix, JBossESB), messaging (ActiveMQ),
governance (Galaxy), BPEL (ActiveBPEL, ODE). The discussion will highlight differentiating factors among the products and provide insight into
areas where open source tools may not be the best option compared to commercial alternatives. Attendees can expect to leave with a background on
the available SOA-related open source tools and a high-level knowledge of how SOA can be implemented quickly, intelligently and cost-effectively
within their enterprise.

Mr. Mulder’s submitted presentation was selected for inclusion at this year’s event by the JavaOne Conference Program Committee, comprised of top
technology experts from the Java community. His proposal was deemed a compelling discussion, well-aligned with a core belief of the conference
that the ability to develop service oriented models is a defining attribute of Java.
