Bringing Code to the Cloud and Back Again

Mik Kersten, CEO of Tasktop Technologies and creator of the
Eclipse Mylyn open source project
Rod Johnson, creator of the Spring framework

The deployment destination for enterprise applications is
going through its biggest transition since the creation of
Java. Cloud infrastructure is changing the game for both
application deployment and lifecycle management. Over the
past decade, open source technologies, such as Spring and
Tomcat, have defined how we build and run enterprise Java
applications. Recent developments in open source
collaboration and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
tools are now transforming how we evolve and manage those

During this keynote, Kersten and Johnson will explore a
turnkey approach that marries enterprise Java with cloud
deployment and Agile/ALM. They will provide an overview of
new technologies at the intersection of these three areas
and demonstrate how they radically simplify the Java
developers' workday by creating a new level of connectivity
between the team and the application. The talk will
conclude with a roadmap of how developers can apply these
new lessons to define the next decade of enterprise Java

Presentation: Thurs., March 17, 10 a.m.
Mylyn 3.4 and the New Face of the Java IDE

Mylyn has become the tool of choice for connecting team
collaboration with coding. In 2010, Mylyn grew to support
the entire Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) stack.
This talk will provide an overview of how Mylyn can double
Java development output by bringing the entire workday into
the place where developers are most productive - the IDE.
Demos showcase how Mylyn's task-focused interface
integrates all leading task and Agile tools, SCM tools such
as SVN and Git, and build/CI tools, including Hudson, then
show how Mylyn's frameworks can run outside of Eclipse on
the server side. The talk concludes with a vision of how
realigning collaboration around a unified notion of tasks
yields a measurable productivity benefit across the
