Description: The Spring Framework has been a very popular foundation for many Java programs. So the release of the 4.0 version of Spring in December 2013 has implications for a great many developers. In this webinar we will present some of the major changes in the Spring 4.0 Framework and focus on what the impact of these changes and new features might be for Spring developers. Besides the “Spring Framework” project, which is certainly the core of the Spring platform, there are also a lot of other Spring-related projects available to developers that might be useful in certain types of projects. In this webinar we will also take a quick tour of some of these projects so that you can get up to speed on what has been happening in the Spring space and evaluate how to leverage these new releases within your own projects.

In some ways requirements for mobile applications are just requirements. However many of the features that make mobile computing so compelling (multiple forms of connectivity, cameras, GPS, …) give rise to new requirements that we have not had to consider in traditional application delivery. Successful software projects do not just happen, they start with good analysis and design and requirements capture is an important part of that effort. In this webinar we will look at aspects of mobile applications that give rise to requirements not normally considered in traditional solutions delivery.

After spending some time where the Java language was "stuck" at Java SE 6 because of Oracle buying Sun, Java is moving forward again and companies are starting to leverage some of the new versions. Many companies are starting to move to Java SE 7 since that has been out for a few years and will be the required minimum version of Java EE 7 application servers as those are released. Java SE 8 was also recently finalized and although probably too early for many large Java projects to move to it fully it will help to know what are some of the more significant features of Java SE 8. In this webinar we will focus on the changes in Java SE 7 that projects can use when adopting this environment along with some of the significant features of Java SE 8 to watch out for as that becomes more popular.

Although WebSphere Application Server is one of the most robust Java Enterprise Application Servers for deployment of mission critical applications, it is not always that easy to use in development. Often we see clients who deploy to WebSphere in production using Tomcat or some other server to test in development because it is "easier". The complaint is that the full WebSphere Application Server takes too long to start or redeploy applications and is not intuitive to configure for developers. To address these issues, IBM has created the WebSphere "Liberty Profile" server. This is a lightweight server, certified for Java EE 6, that starts much faster and is easier to configure. In this webinar we will look at the features of the WebSphere Liberty Profile server, how it compares to the "full" WebSphere Application Server, and how you can use it to simplify the development and testing of Java EE applications. We will even show that with version 8.5.5 of the WebSphere Liberty Profile there are some intriguing new features that would even let you run the server as part of a cluster and use it for some production deployment scenarios. We will also highlight the use of FREE Eclipse development tools that are available since the cost of development tools for WebSphere Application Server has also been historically an issue.

The classic CMMI-style approach to gauging and managing maturity isn't viable for modern architecture practices. Process-centric maturity that presumes a lock-step progression and a binary view of maturity is unrealistic. Experience in maturing Enterprise and Business Architecture practices reveals that a more flexible, artifact-centric and technique-driven approach is more pragmatic. In this session, architecture expert Kyle Gabhart presents a rubric-style approach to promoting mature architecture practices.
