2:30pm to 3:15pm
Among the first questions I had when I discovered Play and Akka were: ?How do I deploy the app on an application server?? ?How can I use a distributed transaction??.
Only to discover that the answer is: You don't want to.
Many developers - the speaker included - have developed applications in a ?Java Enterprise Edition? fashion for 10 years or more and are sometimes stuck in a certain way of thinking.
We are going to explore some patterns that we assume to be ?the way of doing things?, take a critical look at them, and see how they translate - or don't translate - to a more distributed, asynchronous, reactive mindset.
Talk talk will focus on
- Threads in Java EE- one thread per request, keeping data in ThreadLocal - vs. sub-thread concurrency
- Distributed transactions, 2-phase-commit - ?all-or-nothing? in a distributed, asynchronous world
This talk is targeted at developers new to Play and Akka.
