Building Web Applications with the Springsource Application Platform

If you’re a Java web developer, you’re certainly familiar with monolithic WAR deployments and library bloat, and you’ve probably thought numerous times, “There must be a better way.” Well, there is! By building on the benefits of an OSGi runtime environment and combining the Spring and Spring-DM programming models, the SpringSource Application Platform offers enterprise web developers exciting new opportunities. This session will focus on developing web applications in an OSGi environment and will include a discussion of the migration path from a standard Java EE WAR to a fully OSGi-enabled web application packaged as a Web Module within a PAR. We will begin with an overview of deployment and packaging options available on the Platform and then take a closer look at each supported web deployment model from Standard WARs to Shared Libraries WARs, Shared Services WARs, and finally Web Modules. Viewers will walk away with a solid understanding of how to both develop and deploy next generation web applications on the S2AP.
