Aarhus, DK – September 17, 2007 – GigaSpaces Technologies today announced that Shay Banon will present at the upcoming JAOO conference in Denmark. During the session, Banon will discuss how to implement an architecture that meets the demanding requirements of “next generation” applications while keeping the Spring developer within the comfort zone of a typical Spring development experience. Attendees will learn how to craft such a solution using GigaSpaces new OpenSpaces initiative, providing data grid and event driven functionality and a simple SLA driven Spring (non JEE) container.

In addition to being a system architect at GigaSpaces, Banon is the founder of the Compass open source project, a unique solution enabling search capabilities into any application model. He started working on mission-critical, real-time C/C++ systems, later moving to Java. Within the Java world, Banon has worked on a propriety implementation of a distributed rule engine (RETE) server, Java based web projects and messaging based projects within the financial industry.
