Java Platforms have dominated server-side Java development for the past 10 years. The extension of Platform into the Cloud has created a new environment for developers to code, deploy and run applications in. In this session Paul Fremantle, CTO and Co-Founder of WSO2, will look into Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS):

  • What are the key features of a PaaS?
  • What PaaS’s are out there – which are Open Source and what are the differentiators between them?
  • How to develop code for a Java PaaS? What are the key APIs?
  • Understanding the Stratos PaaS
  • Coding examples

This session is essential to developers looking to understand how Cloud is transforming Java development.

This session is sponsored by WS02
