The pace of change in the Java and Java Enterprise areas is increasing. With many more companies and projects starting to adopt the Java EE 5 specifications and several major vendors soon releasing support for Java EE 6, 2011 looks to be a year of great opportunity in improving the robustness and efficiency in Java programming and projects. Rather than adapting to changes well after they have occurred and risk using outdated technology or simply using the same technologies used in the past because of familiarity, this webinar will make sure decision makers and those responsible for skill development are aware of what is happening and can plan accordingly. We will discuss the status of popular technologies like Struts and Spring and where more modern equivalents may be available for better lifetime of applications. We will also introduce other new technologies and show how some of the innovations of third party libraries like Spring and Hibernate have been brought back into the Java specifications. We will help you understand how using some of these technologies can help create applications that are easier to implement, perform better at runtime, and leverage the built-in capabilities of the environment they execute in.
