GWT-OpenLayers release 0.7

GWT-OpenLayers release 0.6. Blog ‐ Posted on 19.09.2011 A lot of improvements and some initial alignment with OpenLayers 2.11 have been made on the fresh release of GWT-OpenLayers library.

GWT-OpenLayers release 0.6

Actually the developers are also evaluating a brand new refactored showcase and a full alignment with OpenLayers 2.11. The releases are available for the download here: On release 0.6 the major improvements are: Operations support system. Operations support systems (also called operational support systems or OSS) are computer systems used by telecommunications service providers.

Operations support system

The term OSS most frequently describes "network systems" dealing with the telecom network itself, supporting processes such as maintaining network inventory, provisioning services, configuring network components, and managing faults. The complementary term, business support systems or BSS, is a newer term and typically refers to “business systems” dealing with customers, supporting processes such as taking orders, processing bills, and collecting payments. The two systems together are often abbreviated OSS/BSS, BSS/OSS or simply B/OSS. Business support system. Business support systems (BSS) are the components that a telephone operator or telco uses to run its business operations towards customer.

Business support system

BSS and OSS platforms are linked in the need to support various end to end services. Each area has its own data and service responsibilities. Role of business support systems[edit] Basically it deals with the taking of orders, payment issues, revenues etc. The role of business support systems in a service provider is to cover four main areas: Product managementOrder managementRevenue managementCustomer management Product management[edit] Product management supports product development, the sales and management of products, offers and bundles to businesses and mass-market customers. Customer management[edit] Service providers require a single view of the customer and regularly need to support complex hierarchies across customer-facing applications (customer relationship management). Apache ODE. Shibboleth (Internet2)

Shibboleth is a 'single-sign in', or logging-in system for computer networks and the Internet.

Shibboleth (Internet2)

It allows people to sign in, using just one 'identity', to various systems run by 'federations' of different organizations or institutions. The federations are often universities or public service organizations. The Shibboleth Internet2 middleware initiative created an architecture and open-source implementation for identity management and federated identity-based authentication and authorization (or access control) infrastructure based on Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML).

OpenLayers: Home. Kerberos (protocol) Kerberos builds on symmetric key cryptography and requires a trusted third party, and optionally may use public-key cryptography during certain phases of authentication. [1] Kerberos uses UDP port 88 by default.

Kerberos (protocol)

MIT developed Kerberos to protect network services provided by Project Athena. The protocol is based on the earlier Needham-Schroeder Symmetric Key Protocol. The protocol was named after the character Kerberos (or Cerberus) from Greek mythology, which was a monstrous three-headed guard dog of Hades. Several versions of the protocol exist; versions 1–3 occurred only internally at MIT. Code Access Security. Evidence[edit] Evidence can be any information associated with an assembly.

Code Access Security

The default evidences that are used by .NET code access security are: Application directory: the directory in which an assembly resides.Publisher: the assembly's publisher's digital signature (requires the assembly to be signed via Authenticode).URL: the complete URL where the assembly was launched fromSite: the hostname of the URL/Remote Domain/VPN.Zone: the security zone where the assembly residesHash: a cryptographic hash of the assembly, which identifies a specific version.Strong Name: a combination of the assembly name, version and public key of the signing key used to sign the assembly.

Application performance management. In the fields of information technology and systems management, Application Performance Management (APM) is the monitoring and management of performance and availability of software applications.

Application performance management

Application service automation. Application service automation is the field where the operations needed to deploy and service data center applications are automated in order to centrally and accurately control application change.

Application service automation

With application service automation operations teams can transform manual, error-prone application service tasks into reliable, repeatable and timely processes to gain control over application packaging, deployment, change, troubleshooting, recovery and auditing. Application service automation enables the simple modeling of application workflows, including tiers and dependencies and executes these across any heterogeneous data center environment - physical, virtual and cloud. By simplifying operational complexity and eliminating application configuration errors Application Service Automation enables heightened uptime while reducing the time and cost of servicing applications.

Automated application deployment is considered a subset of application service automation. References[edit] Root cause analysis. Root cause analysis (RCA) is a method of problem solving used for identifying the root causes of faults or problems.[1] A factor is considered a root cause if removal thereof from the problem-fault-sequence prevents the final undesirable event from recurring; whereas a causal factor is one that affects an event's outcome, but is not a root cause.

Root cause analysis

Though removing a causal factor can benefit an outcome, it does not prevent its recurrence with certainty. For example, imagine a fictional segment of students who received poor testing scores. OpenJDK. OpenJDK (Open Java Development Kit) is a free and open source implementation of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE).[1] It is the result of an effort Sun Microsystems began in 2006. The implementation is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL) with a linking exception. Were it not for the GPL linking exception, components that linked to the Java class library would be subject to the terms of the GPL license.

OpenJDK is the official Java SE 7 reference implementation.[2][3] Components[edit] OpenJDK. RRDtool. RRDtool has a graph function, which presents data from an RRD in a customizable graphical format It also includes tools to extract RRD data in a graphical format, for which it was originally intended. General data storage[edit] RRDtool assumes time-variable data in intervals of a certain length. This interval, usually named step, is specified upon creation of an RRD file and cannot be changed afterwards. Main / OSGi Alliance. We are excited to announce that OSGi DevCon 2014 will be taking place in New York, June 11 to 13, 2014. TM Forum. The TM Forum (formerly TeleManagement Forum and the Network Management Forum) is a non-profit industry association, for service providers and their suppliers in the telecommunications and entertainment industries. It acquired the IPsphere Forum group in 2008. Members include telephone companies, cable operators, network operators, software suppliers, equipment suppliers and systems integrators.

As of December 2012[update], the Forum had over 900 member companies in different countries.[1] TM Forum - Home. The Forum brings together thought-leaders and delivers thought-changing analysis and revolutionary approaches to address industry issues, from macro market trends to pragmatic technology challenges. By bringing the industry together to identify and solve common problems, we drive innovation, striving to challenge conventional thinking by bringing disruptive ideas to the table. We drive collaboration between players in the value-chain to remove business and technology roadblocks to growth through industry agreement and pragmatic enabling standards. As services scale, we bring together experts in competencies such as customer experience management, data analytics, business process optimization, revenue management, and more to establish business standards, best practices and practical tools to continuously optimize provider operations.

Frameworx, formerly known as New Generation Operations Systems and Software (NGOSS) is a set of technical specifications to help communications service providers manage their business. Fault-tolerant system. Failover. Systems designers usually provide failover capability in servers, systems or networks requiring continuous availability -- the used term is High Availability -- and a high degree of reliability. Some systems, intentionally, do not failover entirely automatically, but require human intervention.

Load balancing (computing) For Internet services, the load balancer is usually a software program that is listening on the port where external clients connect to access services. High availability.
