Bringing Code to the Cloud and Back Again

Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the Eclipse Mylyn open source project

Rod Johnson, creator of the Spring framework

The deployment destination for enterprise applications is going through its biggest transition since the creation of Java. Cloud infrastructure is changing the game for both application deployment and lifecycle management. Over the past decade, open source technologies, such as Spring and Tomcat, have defined how we build and run enterprise Java applications. Recent developments in open source collaboration and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools are now transforming how we evolve and manage those applications.

During this keynote, Kersten and Johnson will explore a turnkey approach that marries enterprise Java with cloud deployment and Agile/ALM. They will provide an overview of new technologies at the intersection of these three areas and demonstrate how they radically simplify the Java developers' workday by creating a new level of connectivity between the team and the application. The talk will conclude with a roadmap of how developers can apply these new lessons to define the next decade of enterprise Java productivity.

Presentation: Thurs., March 17, 10 a.m.

Mylyn 3.4 and the New Face of the Java IDE

Mylyn has become the tool of choice for connecting team collaboration with coding. In 2010, Mylyn grew to support the entire Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) stack. This talk will provide an overview of how Mylyn can double Java development output by bringing the entire workday into the place where developers are most productive – the IDE. Demos showcase how Mylyn's task-focused interface integrates all leading task and Agile tools, SCM tools such as SVN and Git, and build/CI tools, including Hudson, then show how Mylyn's frameworks can run outside of Eclipse on the server side. The talk concludes with a vision of how realigning collaboration around a unified notion of tasks yields a measurable productivity benefit across the organization.
