Presentation: "Enterprise Java goes OSGi: The SpringSource Application Platform"

Time: Tuesday 14:40 - 15:30

Location: Kammermusik

Abstract: Every since its creation Java EE has been synonymous with Enterprise Java and for about 10 years no new approaches have been tried. In other areas dynamic systems based on OSGi are common place - look at Eclipse or the embedded world. Based on OSGi and Tomcat, the SpringSource Application Platform (AP) offers a style for the development of Enterprise Java applications. This talk will provide an overview of AP and give some practical examples of this new technology. Also the implication for the architecture of modern Enterprise Java systems will be discussed.
