Spring into the Next Decade

The Spring framework has has enjoyed enormous uptake since its inception, almost 10 years ago, because it continually outraces the competition and delivers the most compelling solution for enterprise Java developers. The Spring platform provides a unified component model that brings you to where your business logic is. In this talk, Josh Long will introduce the Spring of 2011, a framework that helps you build web applications, cloud applications and service applications with the greatest of ease, a Spring that knows no bounds.

The Social Service Bus

Your applications need to scale and they need to integrate with the outside world. Web 2.0 is all about giving your customers something they can invest in – something that they want to see grow. You do that by integrating with what they care about, and these days, they care about their communities. This talk explores the fundamentals of integration and speaks to how the Spring Integration framework may be used to bring your application to where your customers are. The attendee will learn about building event driven applications integrations in a generic, re-usable way that connect customers to applications. The implications of this approach is that you can use these services, and their built-in audiences, to build your business. Web 2.0 is all about this integration of data and services like Twitter, e-mail, RSS/ATOM, and XMPP (the chat protocol behind Google Talk and Facebook Chat) with their users.
