With the huge amount of sessions at Oracle Open World, it’s often hard to find the little gems of information amongst all the marketing. This is true of ADF like all other technologies at the conference, there’s simply a lot of information to digest and filter. Luckily Oracle publishes the presentations PPTs afterwards and it’s possible to find a jewel or two in all the content with some careful searching. For the ADF developers among us, this blog post attempts to summarize some of the main ADF takeaways from Oracle Open World 2011. Please remember this is my summary, not Oracle’s (I am not an Oracle employee), and Oracle publishes all of this content under the Safe Harbor statement which means they cannot be held to anything they published.

REST Security at JavaOne

I'm speaking with Vikas Jain from Oracle at JavaOne (co-located with Oracle Open World this year) on the topic of REST Security. The session link is below: http://www.eventreg.com/cc250/sessionDetail.jsp?SID=314100 (or go to the main catalog page and paste the Session ID 314100 into the search form). We'll be talking about threats and countermeasures for REST Web Services. We will also discuss the various REST authentication schemes being used by Cloud service providers today. Some of these authentication schemes (in particular that used by Amazon Web Services) is as close to an "industry standard" for REST authentication as we have now. Saw what you like about the WS-Security bloat, but at least it is an open standard, whereas for REST authentication there isn't one yet (unless you count HTTP Auth). But organizations realize that they can gain an advantage by providing ... (more)
