Is Enterprise Java ready for Mobile and Cloud? – Red Hat’s Mark Little

Platform as a Service has gained great popularity over the past two years. Many vendors have rewritten their middleware handbooks, and discarded existing investments in Java EE. With the rapid growth in interest around mobile, we’re starting to hear the same things: that existing middleware implementations and approaches are simply not right for the mobile developer. Red Hat’s Mark Little believes it’s risky to write off middleware in all this. In this session from JAX 2012, Little discusses the need for enterprise Java in both Cloud and Mobile. He also looks at how Java, the JVM and associated standards and communities need to evolve in order to better serve these two growing and important aspects in computing.

New Challenges and Approaches for Enterprise Java – Eberhard Wolff

In his presentation at JAXConf 2012, Eberhard Wolff of adesso discusses the impact of new platforms such as NoSQL, DevOps, and the cloud on the future of Enterprise Java. Java EE has long enjoyed broad support across the industry through companies like IBM, Oracle, and SAP, but Java developers need to be prepared to tackle the challenges and opportunities presented by new startup-fueled technologies.
