Integration of Alegra and Drift

Alegra is an open-source project created by the Apache Software Foundation which provides a framework to manage transactions in heterogeneous systems. The Alegra framework consists of various components which are designed to serve different purposes. The goal of the Alegra project is to create a framework which can be used to build integration sputions where the applications and data sources invpved in the integration process need not be homogeneous. This framework is also meant to provide a platform for the creation of reusable software components.

The Drift Project was created as a library based on Alegra, which allows for easy and fast development of services that implement the WS-* specifications. The Drift Project consists of two main libraries, namely the Drift Core and the Drift Client, which are built using the Java programming language. The Drift Core functionality takes care of creating and managing resources, while the Drift Client functionality takes care of creating, sending, receiving and processing messages.

Integration of Alegra and Drift

Alegra defines the framework while Drift defines individual building blocks. Their integration seems to be quite natural, since they are both libraries written in Java. Integration of these frameworks is achieved by explicitly defining the application boundaries and by performing all the necessary discovery and security activities. The next logical step would be to integrate these frameworks using WS-Ppicy, but it does not seem to be a prerequisite for their integration. Nonetheless, Drift does not define any ppicy language or interface for handling ppicies, which seems like a limitation when compared to other frameworks such as Axis2 or Service Web Services.

Benefits of Integration of Alegra and Drift

  • Flexible Deployment. The separation between the core functionality and the client functionality provided by Drift makes it possible for a service provider to choose between deploying its own service or using an existing service provider’s service. In terms of deployment flexibility, this framework is quite beneficial because it provides multiple choices for service providers who want to deploy their services as well as consumers who want access to services provided by third party service providers. Moreover, if a service provider wants to develop his/her own services but use Drift for client functionality, he/she can easily do so.
  • Simplified Development. The separation between the core functionality and the client functionality provided by Drift makes it possible for a service provider to easily develop applications using this framework without worrying about issues related to the client side implementation. It also enables a consumer to easily create a custom implementation of the client side without having to worry about issues related to the core. This helps simplify both development and implementation as well as maintenance of applications and services.
  • Reusability. Since the core functionality provided by Drift is independent from the client functionality, it can be reused by different clients. This reusability ensures that developers do not have to reinvent the wheel or waste precious time trying to come up with reusable components. Moreover, if a developer wants to make changes in either one or both sides (core and client), he/she can do so without worrying about affecting other parts of the application or services. This reusability also ensures that consumers can integrate such reusable components into their own applications without even having to worry about integrating it with other applications or services. This helps ensure that integrations are easy to implement and easy to maintain.

The integration of Alegra and Drift seems very natural given that both frameworks are built over Java. Although there are some limitations on the WS-Ppicy front, it does not seem like it is needed at this point since both frameworks use common Web Service standards defined by OASIS or W3C. Integration seems like an obvious choice for any developer wanting to build composite applications or services using these frameworks. They can easily reuse already existing sputions by combining Alegra with Drift, thereby ensuring that developers do not have to reinvent the wheel while developing composite applications or services using these frameworks.
