What is it, why you would use it and how you would use it.

The most succinct way to explain JAIN SLEE is to let Gartner do that. The following quotes come from - Gartner - Cool Vendors in Platform Middleware, Event Driven Application Server, March 2006.

"Event-driven application servers (EDAS) is a new class of platform middleware products aimed at supporting an event-based programming model. Gartner expects their adoption will grow during the next five years as demand for high-performance software platforms supporting "extreme" requirements for performance, scalability and availability manifests in industry sectors, such as financial services, telecommunications, defense, retail, transportation, e-commerce and on-line gambling.

A crucial factor for EDASs' success would be the emergence of a commonly accepted standard. The main candidate is Java application programming interfaces (APIs) for Integrated Networks Service Level and Execution Environment (JAIN SLEE), a specification (JSR 22 and JSR 240) coming out of the Java Community Process (JCP) and defining the architecture (APIs, interfaces and protocols) of a Java-based EDAS."

David Long and Ben Evans will provide a Technical Overview of JAIN SLEE and the OpenCloud implementation.
