The Web Bean talk is an introduction to the elegant loosely coupled strongly typed component model that Web Beans introduces. After a brief intro, I will walk through examples to demonstrate how each concept is used in practice. Depending on how advanced the reference implementation is, I might try to make some of these live.
The second talk will cover Hibernate and Scalability. I will co-present with Max Ross from Google (one of the engineers behind Hibernate Shards). We will cover various subjects:
- stateless session
- how Software as a Service providers scale Hibernate in their platforms
- some of the patterns that ensure better scalability
- Hibernate Shards and how to scale to many DBs
- Hibernate Search and how to save your DBA's butt
Hope to see you there!
