Presentation: "P2P - new architecture ideas with JXTA for J2EE"

Track:   J2EE"

Time: Tuesday 13:00 - 14:00

Location: Conference Hall 2

Abstract: The clean separation between the presentation and business logic enables the transparent distribution of the server and client. In contrary a pure P2P architecture does not distinguish between typical client and server responsibilities. This session presents some synergy effects merging these two distinct worlds together. Especially the non-functional requirements like extendibility, scaleability, manageability and interesting P2P concepts (data distribution, advertisements, walkers etc) will be considered.

Presentation: "Are Java Fat Clients dead?"

Track:   Java 5.0

Time: Wednesday 13:00 - 14:00

Location: Conference Hall 2

Abstract: Thin Client Architectures promise better extendibility, maintainability and code quality in the whole software lifecycle. Are thin clients actually the best choice for building interactive rich clients? This session describes an alternative achitecture to ultra thin client and SOA. Beyond pure theory examples from the real world projects will be discussed. Especially object oriented alternatives to component based development with real world technologies (J2EE, Swing/RCP, JDO, CMP 2.0/3.0, Hibernate) will be presented.
