Brief introduction:Come and win big prizes

In 2021, COPU, the China Open Source Software Promotion Alliance, led the release of the Blue Book of Open Source Development in China in 2021, which covers the overall situation analysis, developer analysis, project analysis and field cases of open source in the world today, and draws an “open source digital ecological map”. It gives us a comprehensive view of the power of China in the open source field.

The report states:

  • The open source activity of domestic enterprises ranked first, some index value is even the sum of other companies, and in the community/open and other aspects also do well;
  • Dubbo and RocketMQ, two cloud native middleware open source projects, are in the first square of the open source quadrant of Apache Software Foundation China (two dimensions of globalization and influence).
  • Two middleware open source projects, NACOS and SEATA, are listed in China’s Top 20 Projects List.

This year, 14 open source projects of Ali Cloud’s original open source family joined a series of university open source activities supported by the Open Source Software Supply Chain Lighting Plan of the Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Sciences — Summer 2021. Website: _https: / / summer. Iscas. Ac. Cn / _

Through this activity, students can deeply experience the real world software development under the guidance of top open source tutors, and feel the charm of open source technology co-construction. There are many project mentors participating in this plan, such as Apache top project PMC & Committer, CNCF TOC, etc., and the projects involve many popular directions such as domain micro service, container, Serverless, chaos engineering and so on.

Project introduction

Apache Dubbo

Dubbo is a high-performance RPC framework opened source by Alibaba in 2011 and is gradually transforming from an RPC framework to a micro-services ecosystem. In May 2019, I graduated from the Apache Software Foundation and became a top Apache project. In 2021, Dubbo 3.0 Preview was released, directly announcing the next generation of cloud-native technology blueprint.

Open Messaging

In the age of cloud computing, messaging has become a key part of modern data-driven architecture. Messaging middleware can connect data sources, data processing engines and applications. However, globally, there are still two major problems in the messaging space. One is the lack of vendor-neutral industry standards, which leads to high complexity and incompatibility of various kinds of messaging middleware, which leads to product inefficiency, confusion and vendor lock-in problems for companies. Second, the existing scheme framework is not well adapted to cloud architecture, that is, non-cloud native architecture, so it cannot effectively provide technical support for emerging business requirements such as big data, stream computing and Internet of Things. OpenMessaging is looking to address these problems by ditching historical baggage and going light. In addition to being able to link cross-platform, cross-language, cross-product and cross-cloud standards, OpenMessaging will provide Cloud Native capabilities for Cloud computing, hybrid Cloud architecture, seamless migration of multi-cloud platforms, and dedicated to providing one-stop solutions in finance, e-commerce, IoT, big data and other fields. More than 4 years of development, so far, including API Spec, OpenConnect, OpenChaos, OpenSchema, Dledger and many popular open source projects.

With the popularity of micro-services, applications are more lightweight and development efficiency is constantly improved, but the dilemma is that online problem troubleshooting is becoming more and more complex and difficult. Traditional Java troubleshooting requires restarting the application and then debugging, but after restarting the application, the scene will be lost, and the problem is difficult to repeat. So since September 2018, Alibaba has opened up Arthas, a time-tested and well-loved app diagnostics tool for developers. Within Alibaba, Arthas diagnoses millions of times every year, serves 10,000 + applications, and saves 9,000 person-days in total. With innovative bytecode weaving technology, Arthas can efficiently troubleshoot problems by viewing the invocation context without the need for an application restart. Combined with the flame diagram, the hot spot can be located directly and the performance bottleneck can be found. Redefine technology to achieve online hot update code; Support black screen and white screen diagnosis at the same time, can connect the diagnosis of large-scale clusters. At present, Arthas has 26,000 + stars on GitHub, topping GitHub trends for many times, and received registration support from 150+ companies. Arthas has been awarded open source China GVP and most popular software awards continuously, and is currently the most popular diagnostic tool for Java applications.

Serverless Devs

Serverless is a hot topic in the field of cloud computing in recent years. With its extreme flexibility, pay-per-amount, cost reduction and efficiency improvement, many advantages, Serverless has been sought after by many people. Cloud manufacturers are also constantly layout Serverless field. But with the development of time, Serverless field also exposed some more serious, such as vendor lock serious, no appropriate developer tools, the program is difficult to debug…… To this end, SERVERLESS DEVS came into being, to solve the developers in the development of SERVERLESS applications in the most fundamental demands for their own responsibility, in the form of open source attitude, in order to promote the Serverless field of pre-behavior goals, SERVERLESS DEVS was born by Alibaba, We are not restricted to Ali Cloud, and we are willing to open our arms and play with Serverless architecture with more ServerLessor. Serverless Devs is an open source project in the field of Serverless initiated by Alibaba. Its purpose is to contribute an open source, non-vendor locked Serverless developer tool together with developers. Hopefully this tool will help developers develop Serverless applications throughout their life cycle, and hopefully developers will be able to play with Serverless just like they do with their mobile phones.

DragonFly is a P2P based intelligent mirroring and file distribution tool. It is designed to increase the efficiency and speed of file transfers and maximize the use of network bandwidth, especially when large amounts of data are distributed, such as application distribution, cache distribution, log distribution, and mirroring distribution. At Alibaba, Dragonfly is called 2 billion times a month, distributing 3.4 petabytes of data. Dragonfly has become an important piece of Alibaba’s infrastructure. While container technology simplifies operations for the most part, it also presents some challenges: for example, the efficiency of image distribution, especially when it has to be replicated on multiple hosts. Dragonfly perfectly supports Docker and PouchContainer in this scenario. It is also compatible with containers in other formats. It speeds container distribution up to 57 times faster than native methods and reduces Registry network export traffic by 99.5 per cent. Dragonfly makes it easy and economical to distribute all types of files, mirroring, or data.
