ABSTRACT:  Recent developments in Java and Gluster have given us a new way to connect these two technologies: Java 7 paved the way for file system provider plug-ins, while GlusterFS 3.4 provides a new client software interface.

This session introduces glusterfs-java-filesystem, a new open source project that connects applications running on the Java platform to GlusterFS storage. Join Louis Zuckerman, founder of the glusterfs-java-filesystem project, for a deep dive into:

  • What it means to access GlusterFS directly from Java, and why it matters.
  • Writing and testing a Java file system provider.
  • Using file system provider plug-ins in Java applications.
  • Accessing GlusterFS from other languages on the Java platform (jython, jruby, scala, clojure, groovy, etc.).

The presentation includes slides, a live demonstration, and Q and A. After attending the session, you'll be able to use GlusterFS in your own Java platform applications.
