Enhance developer productivity, usability & security

URL Re-writing with Red Hat's Lincoln Baxter III

In this talk at JAXconf 2012, Lincoln Baxter III, Senior Software Engineer at the legendary Red Hat, talks about URL shortening and re-writing and how it can affect the productivity, usability, and security of your applications. Java EE is already the perfect solution for complex business/enterprise systems and provides all the tools and foundations required to deliver scalable, performant applications for a wide variety of customers and clients. But how does the end user experience stack up? How easy is it to navigate through your Website? Is your code full of nasty navigation logic? Are your links clear, transparent, and informative? Do you find yourself adding '?query=parameters' in order to serve dynamic content from your application? Can you ensure that you are not leaking information in your URLs, and that your applications are secure from URL-based attacks? Are your old links making it difficult to migrate or integrate a legacy application to a new one? These are all things that URL rewriting can help with, and if you are uncertain about any of these questions, this talk is for you. See what's possible with the power of URL-rewriting.
