Emil Ong is the Chief Evangelist at Caucho Technology, an independent
application server vendor. Caucho's flagship product is a
high-performance, open source application server called Resin
says that Caucho's independence has given the company a more
developer-focused philosophy. They use Test-Driven Development (TDD)
to not only improve product performance, but also to optimize
functionalities that can make developers more efficient.
Ong discusses the new features in Resin 4.0 and the company's reference
implementation (RI) of CDI called CanDI
. Caucho's CDI implementation
is the only RI that fully integrates throughout the application server,
he says. Ong also discusses Quercus, a Caucho implementation of PHP
pure Java. Caucho is also working on deploying Resin server clusters
in the cloud. Ong says this will allow users to add and remove servers
at runtime with no interruptions.
