Its been two years since I’ve last visited the JavaOne conference. This year is going to be particularly interesting as its going to be the first major Java event following the Oracle acquisition of Sun.
I will have a Technical Session on Tuesday titled: Alternative to Google Application Engine for Java™ Technology-Based Applications, where I’m going to outline the difference between the Google and Amazon approach for cloud computing and discuss how we can combine the best of the two approaches. Argyn Kuketayev and Francis de la Cruz from Primatics is going to join me and present their experience in deploying a risk management application as a service and provide some of the technical details on how they where able to scale-out their application on the cloud.
Daniel Templeton from Sun Microsystems will have a lab session: PetClinic in the Clouds: Scaling a Classic Enterprise Application In this Hands-on Lab, participants will take a popular Web application (the Spring PetClinic sample application) and modify it so that it can be deployed on the Amazon EC2 cloud computing infrastructure. They will be exposed to using the GigaSpaces platform as a service, in-memory data grid concepts, the OpenSpaces framework, cloud computing concepts, and persistence as a service using Sun’s MySQL™ database technology.
We are also co-hosting an event Tuesday June 2 at 8PM with our partner Webtide with whom we’ve done a great integration for Jetty.
Among those who will attend the party will give a chance to win a free book Savvy Guide for cloud computing by Jim Liddle.
*Note: Space is going to be limited so if you want to ensure your place make sure to register on the online registration site that we set for this event.
The list below include all the sessions and labs that I hope to see – any recommendations on other interesting talks would be appreciated.
