"Future of Java Build and Continuous Integration"

Mon., Oct. 3, 2011, 11 a.m. Pacific in Hotel Nikko - Nikko Ballroom II/III

Not long ago, developers built and deployed Java applications with brittle scripts and builds invoked from developers' desktops.  Given the complexity of today's applications and the shift of the deployment destination from data center to cloud, Java build is due for an overhaul.  The increased roles of DevOps, Agile planning and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) are putting new requirements on the automation needed in the modern build stack, while the rapid adoption of Hudson is making clear the central role of Continuous Integration (CI) as the hub of a Java application development and deployment.  This panel will debate approaches to modernizing the build, CI and ALM infrastructure to help scale the productivity of development teams and leverage the latest array of build, test and deployment solutions.

"ALM Automation with Mylyn and Hudson"

Tues., Oct. 4, 2011, noon – 1 p.m. Pacific in Parc 55 - Divisidero

With the shift to PaaS and a new breed of open source ALM tools, the deployment loop of enterprise apps is going through its biggest transition since the creation of Java. Kersten will explore connecting the enterprise Java stack to cloud deployment via task-focused continuous integration based on Hudson. Distributed version control systems, code review and Agile planning, based on the Eclipse Mylyn interoperability platform, can be used to create a new level of connectivity and automation between the team and the running application. This talk outlines a roadmap for transforming productivity by connecting developers' desktops to the release, and automating all the steps in between, from provisioning the IDE to monitoring the running application.
