WSO2Con US 2013 - Using the Carbon Architecture To Build a Fit-for-Purpose Platform

  1. 1. Using the Carbon Architecture to build a Fit-for-Purpose Platform Sameera Jayasoma Architect @ WSO2
  2. 2. WSO2 Carbon ● Tag cloud
  3. 3. WSO2 Carbon Platform ● WSO2 Carbon is a ○ lean, ○ modular, ○ enterprise-class middleware platform. ● All WSO2 middleware products are build on top of Carbon ■ Application Server, Enterprise Service Bus, Identity Server, Business Process Server, API Manager.. ● Offers a wide-range of reusable core components to middleware products. ■ Security, Clustering, Caching, Logging, Monitoring, User management..
  4. 4. What is Carbon?
  5. 5. Carbon Kernel Runtime ● Modular server development framework ○ ○ ○ Defines how to develop modules/components in Carbon Defines how these modules collaborate at runtime. Provides a provisioning solution for the Carbon platform. ● Provides a minimal runtime for any WSO2 middleware product. ○ A WSO2 middleware product can be considered as a collection of related modules/components running on this minimal runtime.
  6. 6. Under the covers: OSGi, P2 ● OSGi as the fundamental modularization technology in WSO2 Carbon. ● OSGi provides a better module system for Java: ■ ■ ■ Better control than packages Versioning Dynamic loading ● Carbon Relies on Eclipse’ open source implementation of OSGi - Equinox. ● Provisioning solution based on Equinox P2 ○ P2 is generic provisioning solution for OSGi based systems.
  7. 7. Feature Provisioning in Carbon
  8. 8. Benefits of WSO2 Carbon ● WSO2 technology as well our customers have benefitted from this componentized middleware platform. ● Enables agile development ○ ○ Small teams focusing on their own features Time to market factor for product teams. ● Best of breed ○ Each product brings enhancements to the core. ● No Internal integration challenges. ○ ○ Eliminated these challenges by sharing cross-cutting features across all the middleware products e.g. Security, User mgt, Clustering, Multi-tenancy, Logging
  9. 9. Consistency in usability ● User experience is same across all the products. ● Reduced learning curve. ● Any Carbon based product will have this directory hierarchy. ● If you are familiar with installing, configuring and operating Application server, same applies all the other products.
  10. 10. Composite Application model (CApp) ● Improved definition of “enterprise project”. ● WSO2 developer studio allows to package config and code of an enterprise project into a single archive. (a “car” file) ● A CAR file can be deployed to different runtimes. ● Each runtime will only deploy the artefacts which match with the role that the runtime is playing. ■ e.g. ESB runtime will not deploy a data service in the CAR file unless otherwise the default configuration is altered.
  11. 11. Deployment Synchronization
  12. 12. Deployment Choices Stratos Private PaaS StratosLive Public PaaS C-App Carbon On-Premise
  13. 13. Server Profiles ● Enables a product to run in multiple modes/profiles ● A profile of a product describes the runtime behaviour. ● Each ale contains only the required set of components ○ E.g. A single API Manager distribution can play following roles. API Publisher API Subscriber API Gateway Auth Server ● One download, multiple servers. e.g. sh wso2carbon.sh -Dprofile=profile_name
  14. 14. Unprecedented Extensibility ● Extensibility is provided from the heart of the Carbon platform. ● Componentized architecture allows you to enrich the rich set of features of Carbon platform. ● Certain Extensions are treated as first class citizens of the platform.
  15. 15. Core Platform Components ● User Manager ○ ○ User provisioning and access model APIs to integrate third party user stores ● Registry ○ Provides repository API to store any type of data of metadata. ● Distributed Caching and Clustering ○ Based use Hazelcast ● Deployment Engine ○ ○ Ghost deployment Deployment Synchronization and APIs to plugin any repository. ● UI framework ○ Based on Apache Tiles, it provides clean API to plugin your custom UI components. ● Data sources
  16. 16. WSO2 Platform Adaptability
  17. 17. What Carbon Platform means for your Business ● Simpler, speedier projects. ● Reduced risk of failure ● Required only few specialized consultants ● Platform evolution.
  18. 18. WSO2 Carbon 5 (C5) ● Next generation of the Carbon platform. ● Still at the milestone 1 level. ● Planning to release in 6 months.
