Presentation: "Java EE 7: Developing for the Cloud"

Time: Thursday 12:05 - 13:05

Location: Olympic


This talk introduces the Java EE 7 platform, the latest revision of the Java platform for the enterprise. The focus of Java EE 7 is on the cloud, and specifically it aims to bring Platform-as-a-Service providers and application developers together so that portable applications can be deployed on any cloud infrastructure and reap all its benefits in terms of scalability, elasticity, multitenancy, etc.

Furthermore, Java EE 7 continues the ease of development push that characterized prior releases by bringing further simplification to enterprise development. It also adds new, important APIs such as the REST client API in JAX-RS 2.0 and the long awaited Concurrency Utilities for Java EE API, and plenty of improvements to all other components.

Presentation: "The Architecture of Oracle's Public Cloud"

Time: Friday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: Stanford

Abstract: In October, Oracle announced their intention to build an enterprise public cloud for business-critical applications.  This cloud will provide a Database-as-a-Service, Java-as-a-Service, and a set of sales, marketing, and collaboration applications made available in a self-service interface, elastic scalability, and monthly subscription billing model.  This session will introduce the audience to the architecture and design considerations made during the design and implementation of the service.  We’ll discuss the elements that went into building the datacenter, structuring the hardware and multi-tenancy model, how end users administer their services, design considerations for elasticity, and how various interoperability, identity, and security issues were addressed.  This session will be ideal for those looking to understand the concerns that go into building a scalable cloud service or those looking to get a technical introduction to Oracle’s new offerings.
