    Presentation Overview

    Managing Web Services

    In this talk we will discuss the requirements for managing web services. We will describe the new class of management technologies that are essential for the creation and evolution of loosely coupled applications. We will also demonstrate how the management of web services can be incorporated early in the life cycle by extensions to popular IDEs.

    Persistent Information Aggregation

    This presentation will examine new approaches for leveraging the emerging XML standards by designing new infrastructures that persist data in the mid-tier as well as to enable even better performance and scalability of N-tier Java applications. Attendees will learn practical insights for how to immediately take advantage of these new design ideas in their organizations.
