Building Modular Java Applications in the Cloud Age

Speaker Bert Ertman

Modularity is an architectural theme that you'll hear about more and more. Being able to deal with change in a codebase is not something trivial and requires some serious thought. In this talk I will show you that it is actually pretty easy to achieve a modular architecture using OSGi, and the right set of open source tools. Of course everything will be demonstrated using live coding!

In this presentation you will learn how to create modular, robust, and durable enterprise Java applications fit for the Cloud Age. Using a modular development approach with Java, OSGi, and a wealth of open source components, you will be shown how to combine these into coherent applications without locking into one of the existing PaaS providers. Finally, we will focus on deployment, introducing Apache ACE, that allows to centrally manage and distribute software components to target systems in the cloud or on premise. The presenter of this talk authored the O'Reilly book 'Building Modular Cloud Apps with OSGi' and is using these techniques in high profile production applications on a daily basis.
