  • Ajax Applications with JSF 2 and New RichFaces 4

    by Max Katz

    RichFaces is a JSF framework with Ajax components, client-side validation, cloud deployment, skins, and a component development kit (CDK). This session will briefly cover JSF2 Ajax features and then the extra value the new RichFaces adds on top of JSF2 through its advanced features. Examples will include partial table updates, Ajax queues, client-side validation, GAE deployment, and skins.

  • Cloud Computing Day

    by Chris Richardson

    Cloud computing isn't just about application deployment. There are also a growing number of cloud-based web services that you can use to develop your application. Using these services allows you to build highly scalable applications without the pain and cost of having to build your own infrastructure. In this talk you will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of some of these web services.

    At 1:30pm to 2:45pm, Wednesday 22nd June

  • Spring in the Cloud

    by Dave Syer

    Writing an application for cloud deployment can be a different proposition than writing it for local, physical use. In this presentation we explore the practical consequences of designing and implementing applications targeted at a cloud platform or software services. A cloud platform could mean a commercial public offering like EC2 or vCloud, or it could be a home-grown private in-house service, or something in between. There are also increasingly many software services that have an integration aspect - messaging or other low-level services can be combined with higher-level business services to create a system that is more than the sum of its parts. Whether they are public or private, cloud platforms impose constraints on guest applications as part of their design, and for sound economic reasons. We draw from several examples of public and private cloud services, and show how the target system influences application design. A common theme is the need to assess modularity and services differently as architectural styles in the cloud. We show some tips and tricks on using and enabling features of Spring in the cloud and draw examples and demos from a wide range of application styles and cloud platforms.

  • The Java EE 7 Platform: Developing for the Cloud

    by Bill Shannon

    This talk introduces the Java EE 7 platform, the latest revision of the Java platform for the enterprise. The focus of Java EE 7 is on the cloud, and specifically it aims to bring Platform-as-a-Service providers and application developers together so that portable applications can be deployed on any cloud infrastructure and reap all its benefits in terms of scalability, elasticity, multitenancy, etc. Furthermore, Java EE 7 continues the ease of development push that characterized prior releases by bringing further simplification to enterprise development. It also adds new, important APIs such as the REST client API in JAX-RS 2.0 and the long awaited Concurrency Utilities for Java EE API, and plenty of improvements to all other components.
