  • Agenda • OpenSocial Concepts • Apache Shindig • The OpenSocial Specification Process 3
  • Too many platforms!
  • Standards based OpenSocial Write once… Deploy everywhere
  • Massive exposure for your apps!
  • OpenSocial Concepts What is OpenSocial? “OpenSocial defines a common set of APIs based on Open Standards for building social applications across multiple websites” 9

  • Some OpenSocial Partners
  • In one year: has over 600 Million user reach!
  • More OpenSocial numbers  315M+ app Installations  85M+ daily canvas page views  7,500+ applications  20+ live containers 13
  • Where is OpenSocial live today? Applications live to Users: Initial Developer Sandboxes: • LinkedIn - New • iGoogle • MySpace • Yahoo! • orkut • Minglebox • Hi5 • imeem • Freebar • Viadeo • Friendster • CityIN • Webon from Lycos • IDtail • Tianya • YiQi • Ning • Netlog • Plaxo Pulse • Hyves • Lokalisten • … many more in the pipeline! • Ning • Fanbox • XiaoNei • Mail.ru • Socialtext • 51.com http://wiki.opensocial.org 14
  • Not just Social Network Sites • Social network sites - Profiles and home pages ex: MySpace, Hi5 • Personal dashboards – Widgets ex: iGoogle, My Yahoo • Sites based around a Social Object ex: Flickr, YouTube • Enterprise, Professional ex: LinkedIn, Oracle, SalesForce.com • Any web site 15
  • OpenSocial Roadmap • Version 0.5 was released in a “developer release” on Nov 1st. • First “sandbox” was made available on Orkut • Version 0.6 was released in December • Initial version of Shindig server software was launched as Apache incubator project • Other sandboxes came live - Hi5, Ning, Plaxo … • Version 0.7 (production) was released in January • MySpace, Hi5, Orkut currently running with 0.7 16
  • OpenSocial Roadmap • Version v0.8 is current • Latest evolution of OpenSocial as defined by the OpenSocial development community • Updated JavaScript API • Now contains a RESTful API • hi5, MySpace, orkut, iGoogle now support 0.8 • Specification: http://www.opensocial.org/Technical-Resources/opensocial-spec-v08 17
  • OpenSocial v0.8.1 spec is here • Specification is now published • Updates include: • RESTful Protocol updates • JSON RPC Protocol • Specification: http://sites.google.com/a/opensocial.org/opensocial/Technical- Resources/opensocial-spec-v081 18
  • OpenSocial 0.9 - Future Directions • Goal: – Enable a faster development experience that is both secure and efficient • Solution: “Opensocial Templates”! OS Templates core principles: • Client-side and server-side processing • Standard set of tags with extensibility model – Example: <os:ShowPerson> • http://groups.google.com/group/opensocial-and-gadgets- spec/web/opensocial-templates – Demo: http://ostemplates-demo.appspot.com/ 19
  • To follow the progress of the Spec… http://groups.google.com/group/opensocial-and-gadgets-spec 20
  • Demonstration: Building OpenSocial Applications 21
  • Agenda • OpenSocial Concepts • Apache Shindig • The OpenSocial Specification Process 22
  • How do you host OpenSocial Applications? 1. Can build your own server that implements OpenSocial specification… 2. Or can use “Shindig” - Reference implementation for OpenSocial 23
  • Hosting OpenSocial Applications What is Shindig? • Apache Incubator Project • Currently available in Java and PHP • Shindig Components: • Gadget Server •Parses gadget XML, renders as HTML/JS/CSS • OpenSocial Data Server • Plugs into social graph data • RESTful, RPC protocol services • Downloaded JavaScript libraries •Core gadgets, OpenSocial client JavaScript environment http://incubator.apache.org/shindig 24
  • Why use Shindig? • Strong Open Source community • High quality production-ready code • Used by: hi5, orkut, iGoogle, Netlog, Hyves … • Synchronized with specification • Language neutral (Java, PHP, …) • .Net coming soon! 25
  • How Shindig works • Gadget Server • OpenSocial Data Server Shindig Yoursite.com Gadget Gadget Server OpenSocial DataServer 26 26
  • Java Shindig components • Gadget Server • OpenSocial Data Server Shindig Yoursite.com Gadget Gadget Server OpenSocial DataServer 27 27
  • Shindig success at hi5 • Big Traffic • 10k req/sec Edge • 6k req/sec Origin • Hundreds of Developers • 1800+ Apps • 1 Billion hits/day … on 42 Shindig servers 28 28
  • Demonstration: Trying out Shindig 29 29
  • Adapting Shindig • Adapting Shindig to your own social data Shindig Gadget Server OpenSocialDataServer ActivityService Social Graph PersonService Data AppDataService 30
  • Demonstration: Shindig with MySQL 31 31
  • RESTful and RPC protocols Shindig now supports both REST and RPC protocols as of v0.8! Opens new development models • Background processing. • Easier Flash integration. • Mobile applications. 32
  • RESTful and RPC protocols Communication methods: •RESTful (Representational State Transfer) •RPC (Remote Procedure Call)‫‏‬ Formats: •XML •JSON •AtomPub 33
  • RESTful and RPC protocols REST: •Resources are URLs. Example - People: • All people connected to the given user: /people/{guid}/@all • All friends of the given user: /people/{guid}/@friends • Profile of the given user: /people/{guid}/@self • Profile of the authenticated user: /people/@me/@self • Supported Person fields: /people/@supportedFields 34
  • RESTful and RPC protocols Querystring parameters customize requests: • Response format (JSON, XML, AtomPub)‫‏‬ format={format} • Request extra fields fields={-join|,|field}. • Filtering: filterBy={fieldname} filterOp={operation}filterValue={value} updatedSince={xsdDateTime} networkDistance={networkDistance} • Paging: count={count} sortBy={fieldname} sortOrder={order} startIndex={startIndex} 35
  • RESTful and RPC protocols REST responses (Person): • JSON: { quot;idquot; : quot;example.org:34KJDCSKJN2HHF0DW20394quot;, quot;displayNamequot; : quot;Janeyquot;, quot;namequot; : {quot;unstructuredquot; : quot;Jane Doequot;}, quot;genderquot; : quot;femalequot; } • XML: <person xmlns=quot;http://ns.opensocial.org/2008/opensocialquot;> <id></id> <displayName></displayName> <name> <unstructured>Jane Doe</unstructured> </name> <gender>female</gender> </person> 36
  • RESTful and RPC protocols REST responses (Person): • AtomPub: <entry xmlns=quot;http://www.w3.org/2005/Atomquot;> <content type=quot;application/xmlquot;> <person xmlns=quot;http://ns.opensocial.org/2008/opensocialquot;> <name> <unstructured>Jane Doe</unstructured> </name> <gender>female</gender> </person> </content> <title/> <updated>2003-12-13T18:30:02Z</updated> <author/> <id>urn:guid:example.org:34KJDCSKJN2HHF0DW20394</id> </entry> 37
  • RESTful and RPC protocols REST has some disadvantages: •Batch support requires multiple HTTP requests, or a contrived URL scheme. •Specifying multiple users via querystring is difficult. Is ?uid=1234,5678 the same resource as ?uid=5678,1234 ? 38
  • RESTful and RPC protocols RPC: •One endpoint - parameters specify methods to call. •Batch support. •Specify collections of users through passed arguments, not URLs. Example - Fetch current user: • Request • Response POST /rpc HTTP/1.1 HTTP/1.x 207 Multi-Status Host: api.example.org Content-Type: application/json Authorization: <Auth token> { Content-Type: application/json quot;idquot; : quot;myselfquot;, { quot;resultquot; : { quot;methodquot; : quot;people.getquot;, quot;idquot; : quot;example.org:34KJDCSKJN2HHF0DW20394quot;, quot;idquot; : quot;myselfquot;, quot;namequot; : { quot;unstructuredquot; : quot;Jane Doequot;}, quot;paramsquot; : { quot;genderquot; : quot;femalequot; quot;useridquot; : quot;@mequot;, } quot;groupidquot; : quot;@selfquot; } } } 39
  • RESTful and RPC Client libraries Client libraries are being created for PHP, Java, Ruby and Python. • Help you connect to OpenSocial containers, and work with social data on your server. http://code.google.com/p/opensocial-java-client/ http://code.google.com/p/opensocial-ruby-client/ http://code.google.com/p/opensocial-php-client/ 40
  • RESTful and RPC protocols Sample: Fetch a user’s friends from Shindig: OpenSocialClient c = new OpenSocialClient(quot;myhost.comquot;); c.setProperty(OpenSocialClient.Properties.REST_BASE_URI, quot;http://localhost:8080/social/rest/quot;); try { OpenSocialPerson p = c.fetchPerson(quot;john.doequot;); System.out.println(p.getDisplayName()); Collection<OpenSocialPerson> friends = c.fetchFriends(quot;john.doequot;); for (OpenSocialPerson friend : friends) { System.out.println(friend.getDisplayName()); } } catch (Exception e) { } 41
