DevNation 2014 – Louis Zuckerman – GlusterFS & Java
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.
