Java and Flex
Building highly interactive software that users love to use is usually a challenging endeavor. However, the open source Flex SDK and Java are a perfect combination of technologies for building very rich and highly interactive software for the Web and the desktop. The communication between the Java back-end and Flex front-end can utilize a number of different communication protocols, but the easiest and best performing is the open source BlazeDS library. This session covers the fundamentals of using Flex, Java, Spring, and BlazeDS to build rich and highly interactive software for the Web and the desktop.

James Ward is a Technical Evangelist for Flex at Adobe and Adobe’s JCP representative to JSR 286, 299, and 301. Much like his love for climbing mountains he enjoys programming because it provides endless new discoveries, elegant workarounds, summits and valleys. His adventures in climbing have taken him many places. Likewise, technology has brought him many adventures, including: Pascal and Assembly back in the early 90’s; Perl, HTML, and JavaScript in the mid 90’s; then Java and many of it’s frameworks beginning in the late 90’s. Today he primarily uses Flex to build beautiful front-ends for Java based back-ends. Prior to Adobe, James built a rich marketing and customer service portal for Pillar Data Systems.

Topic: Testing in an Agile Context: 9 Principles and 6 Testing Practices That Contribute to Agility

Abstract: As more teams are adopting Agile practices such as XP and Scrum, software testing/QA teams are being asked to become "Agile” as well. But what does that mean? Is the "Agile" label yet another buzzword? Or could it be Agile practices are actually changing the way software is tested? In this talk Elisabeth Hendrickson shares her perspective on testing in an Agile context by explaining the 9 principles and 6 concrete testing practices applied by successful Agile teams. Along the way, she’ll provide an overview of how Agile development practices differ from traditional practices and discuss what those differences mean for independent test teams.
