Spring at JavaOne
The Spring team is headed to JavaOne 2006, May 16th - 19th, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
The team will be delivering three technical sessions:
as well as two Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions:
Each of these sessions will provide practical insight for attendees towards the application of the Spring platform...
In Spring Framework Update, Rod Johnson will outline the major new features of Spring 2.0. Attendees will take away practical information on how to leverage Spring 2.0 to greatly simplify application configuration accross the entire stack through use of domain-specific languages and smart defaults. This includes a demonstration of how to make your business services transactional in one line of configuration code.
Next up at Spring Web Flow, Dialogs for the Web, Keith Donald will discuss the problem Spring Web Flow solves and the value it brings to the table. Attendees will experience the challenges of managing stateful control flow and learn how to use Web Flow to meet them. Attendees will also learn where Web Flow fits in their development toolchest by taking part in a practical example that demonstrates a much simpler programming model for orchestrating stateful web conversations.
Then on Friday Rob Harrop will get down with JMX in Designing Manageable J2EE™ Platform-Based Applications With JMX™ Technology. Rob, together with Akbar Ansari and Sandeep Srivastava of BEA Systems, will outline manageability challenges along with JMX-best practices. Rob will show attendees how to realize the most important best practices with Spring's JMX support via a live demonstration.
.. and last but not least, the BOFs:
Kicking things off Tuesday night at 22:30 is a Spring Rich Client BOF. Spring Rich just had its first public release and is an active, growing community of desktop application developers. This informal gathering for the Spring Rich Client community will provide an opportunity for developers to discuss desktop development issues they are facing and relate how the Spring Rich Client Project has helped address them. In addition, community members will use this as an opportunity to discuss and prioritize the product road map going forward.
Finally, at 20:30 Wednesday evening Rod Johnson will provide an interactive BOF illustrating test-driven development (TDD) with Spring. Attendees will learn how to write system integration tests that use Spring for configuration and transactional data access. You will learn not only how to become more productive writing tests, you'll gain insight into Rod's own strategies for effective TDD.
