Chief Architect - Software Engineering Aficionado
Jeremy Deane has over 18 years of software engineering experience in leadership positions. His expertise includes Enterprise Integration Architecture, Web Application Architecture, and Software Process Improvement. In addition, he is an accomplished speaker and technical author.
Today’s interconnected world requires that organizations rapidly deliver flexible-integrated solutions. The conventional approach is to integrate heterogeneous applications using web services but unfortunately that tends to tightly couple those applications. In this session we will explore several alternatives for achieving Enterprise Integration Agility.
Public Web APIs are increasing at an exponential rate resulting in an ever more connected web. This connected contagion is not just relegated to the domain of Web 2.0 but has infected the corporate world. In fact, companies are becoming more reliant on Software as a Service (SAAS) to provide key business functions.
Combating this contagion requires an approach that provides a type of insurance against constant change and lays the foundation for evergreen enterprise solutions. In this session we will explore three popular architectural styles including Message Oriented, Service Oriented, and Resource Oriented Architecture that are used to achieve Enterprise Integration Agility. In addition, I will provide examples of each architectural style using ActiveMQ/Camel, Mule ESB, and NetKernel.
In this RESTful Imaginarium you will learn about about the core concepts of REST demonstrated through three leading RESTful web service frameworks: Jersey (JAX-RS), Spring MVC and NetKernel. During this daydream you will learn about the fallacies of URL parameters, the debate of PUT vs. POST and the power of HATEOAS.
RESTful web services have become the preferred approach to synchronously integrate heterogeneous systems. The REST Architectural Style’s success is due in large part to its simplicity and the fact that it is based based on a small set of widely accepted standards, such as HTTP. Furthermore REST requires far fewer development steps, toolkits and execution engines than conventional SOAP web services.
This session covers the core concepts of REST and then walks through how to design and implement RESTful web services using three leading RESTful web service frameworks, Jersey (JAX-RS), Spring MVC and NetKernel.
