EJB 3, Spring and Hibernate: A Comparative Analysis and Recommendations
Reza Rahman - Chief Architect at Tripod Technologies


The recent years have seen the Spring/Hibernate stack displace EJB 2 as the default application framework for the hippest enterprise Java developers. EJB 3 is a huge leap forward from yesteryear's heavyweight development model. However, are the improvements to EJB 3 enough to change the enterprise Java landscape yet again?

This session offers a comparative analysis of EJB 3 (including JPA), Spring and Hibernate to see how they really stack up with each other. The session will offer recommendations charting different courses of action depending on what is important for your application. A comparative analysis matrix will help you decide whether you should integrate parts of EJB 3 with Spring, use EJB 3 with some Spring features, port Hibernate code to JPA, move to EJB 3 altogether or use Spring/Hibernate without EJB 3.

Reza Rehman is Chief Architect at Tripod Technologies, an IT solutions company focusing on Java EE in the Baltimore-NYC corridor. He is the co-author of "EJB 3 in Action" from Manning Publishing. Reza has been working with Java EE since its inception in the mid-nineties. He has developed enterprise systems in the publishing, financial, telecommunications and manufacturing industries. Reza has been fortunate to have worked with both EJB and Spring/Hibernate. He coordinates the Philadelphia JBoss User Group.

Adobe Flex for Java Developers
Yakov Fain - Principal Consultant at Farata Systems


Rich Internet applications become a reality. While you can create the client portion of such applications using Java Swing applets, Adobe Flex offers you another alternative that will result in an Internet application running the GUI porttion of your application in fast virtual machine called Flash Player that will communicate with the server-side Java components or frameworks being that POJOs,EJBs, Spring, Hibernate or any other Java-related product. This session starts with explaining how Flex architecture and how it can be integrated in your existing or new Java EE applications. You'll also see how Eclipse plugins see how to introduce rapid application development into your Internet project.

Yakov Fain is a Principal Consultant of Farata Systems. He's responsible for the Enterprise Architecture and emerging technologies. Yakov authored several Java books, dozens of technical articles, and his blog is hugely popular. Sun Microsystems has nominated and awarded Yakov with the title Java Champion.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
