If you're a Java web developer, you're certainly familiar with monolithic WAR deployments and /library bloat/, and you've probably thought numerous times, "There must be a better way." Well, there is! By building on the benefits of an OSGi runtime environment and combining the *Spring* and *Spring-DM* programming models, the *SpringSource dm Server* offers enterprise web developers exciting new opportunities.
In this session, Sam Brannen will focus on developing web applications in an OSGi environment and will include a discussion of the migration path from a standard Java EE WAR to a fully OSGi-enabled web application packaged as a Web Module within a PAR. We will begin with an overview of deployment and packaging options available on the dm Server and then take a closer look at each supported web deployment model from Standard WARs to Shared Libraries WARs, Shared Services WARs, and finally Web Modules. Attendees will walk away with a solid understanding of how to both develop and deploy next generation web applications on the SpringSource dm Server.
