News: TSSJS-Europe 2008: Super Early Bird offer ($200 off) ends Friday

  1. We had so much fun in Vegas, we're bringing our love for enterprise Java to Europe. Join us in Prague, 18-20 June, for TheServerSide.com's 3rd annual Java Symposium-Europe. Some of the most popular sessions from Vegas will also be presented in Prague, including:It'll be emceed by our very own Eugene Ciurana, who had sessions on LeapFrog.com's architecture, MapReduce, and other scalability technologies in Las Vegas - and he'll be doing some more of those sessions in Prague as well. Further, here's a sampling of what's all new for TSSJS-Europe: For starters, Stephan Janssen, founder and chairman of BEJUG, the Belgian Java Users Group, walks us through the ever-evolving and exciting rich internet application landscape in his keynote address, 'Supporting the RIA Space'. We'll also dive into what's new and cool in the upcoming Spring 3.0 with Juergen Hoeller, co-founder of the Spring Framework, and Spring-OSGi with Costin Leau of SpringSource. To tie to it together, Eberhard Wolff is presenting a case study on maximizing the power of the Spring Portfolio. Other TSSJS-Europe sessions include: Select any of the links above to read complete abstracts - and to browse the rest of the sessions we've confirmed. The complete conference agenda will be posted "at-a-glance" this week. I'm sure you'll be impressed - it's shaping up well. Remember, you must register by THIS FRIDAY to lock in the lowest price for TSSJS-Europe. See you there!

    Worthwhile just to go to ask Jürgen what is the logic behind switching from years of repeating the Mantra "Don't let the framework pollute your code" to "With Java5, we now use annotations to do configuration of AOP and DI". Why not be truthful an say "Hey guys, you will glue your applications to Spring 100% anyway, so you might as well put it in the code". Not a bad thing necessarily of course, but pretty much against everything the Spring advocates were advocating the last couple of years.
  3. I welcome annotations. Spring not using annotations was a reason to not use spring for me at last. XML-programming is just a killer to maintain. As you say, you'll be depending on the framework anyhow. It's not like changing frameworks is a plug-and-play action.
  4. Location, location, location[ Go to top ]

    Strange stuff from the conference website: "The Clarion Congress Hotel is a brand new, state-of-the-art conference facility conveniently located in the historical center of Prague" - Now then, I don't know about state of the art part, but I do know it is in Vysocanska - which is about as much the historical center of Prague as Queens is the historical center of New York City :-). Not bad to go where most tourists won't go though....
