Presentation: Developing Professional Solutions with Java, Spring & NoSQL on Windows Azure

Track: Cool Companies I / Time: Wednesday 13:20 - 14:10 / Location: Century B

Microsoft’s public cloud platform Windows Azure provides all of its services through platform-independent and interoperable interfaces. Azure is also capable to host and run applications developed on a variety of different platforms – including Java. In this session we will dig into some details on how-to develop professional Java solutions with the tools and frameworks you know and love on-top of Windows Azure. You learn, how-to leverage Eclipse and interact from Eclipse with Azure for debugging-, testing- and deployment-purposes. You will learn, how you can make use of well-known Java frameworks such as Spring to access to common Windows Azure services such as BLOB-storage and the like. Finally we will also dig into NoSQL on Windows Azure and how you can make use of NoSQL databases from within Java in addition to traditional, relational database systems. If you are an experienced Java developer and are curious, how you can develop professional apps running on Azure with Java, then this session is the right one for you!
