* Aspect-Oriented Programming and Java
This session introduces Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) and how it applies to enterprise Java application development, with an emphasis on applications for service-oriented architectures such as Web services. AOP has become a major topic in the future of enterprise Java development. This session will present a conceptual road map, including tangible examples of how AOP works, and provide an understanding of both the potential and challenges of applying AOP in a J2EE context.
* Squeezing Java
Java is a very powerful language; while it offers the developer a rich array of tools, the fundamentals mustn't be overlooked. Improving your code at the core layer will result in great improvements in efficiency and produce (hopefully) fewer bugs. We'll look at the do's and don'ts of programming and learn lots of hints and tips that will accelerate your Java coding.
* Enterprise Architecture and Open Source
Use of open source software within the enterprise is gaining momentum. The vast majority of organizations are using some form of open source software in production environments, including Linux, Apache, and JBoss. The enterprise architecture, however, needs to incorporate the best thinking of the industry; this includes not only using open source but contributing to it.
The model in which open source software gets developed has practices that could assist an organization in becoming agile in their software development practices and allow them to develop software faster, with cheaper costs and better quality. In this session, you will learn:
* Two models of development: the cathedral and the bazaar
* The value proposition of using open source
* Harnessing the power of the mob: the value proposition of contributing to open source
* Making the build versus buy decision: additional thoughts
* J2EE v1.4
Day-to-day work with deadlines makes it difficult to keep abreast of the rapidly evolving landscape of J2EE, especially given the numerous constituent J2EE technologies. J2EE v1.4 is chockful of new services that affect and benefit a wide range of enterprise development tasks. This talk will extract core material from the speaker's new J2EE Developer's Handbook and describe what's embodied in J2EE v1.4. In particular, the new Web services features provided by J2EE v1.4 will be highlighted. The talk will also briefly address those services missing from the current J2EE standards but still needed when building enterprise applications.
