Java Track - Using Grid Computing with Web Services and J2EE to Create Internet-based SOAs

An In-Depth Overview Of Three Real-World Case Studies Using Grid Computing

Service-oriented architecture, Web services, and J2EE technologies are dramatically changing the ways in which enterprises develop and deploy their Internet-facing applications. Because these applications potentially have a global user base, correctly architecting applications is a particular challenge. A combination of grid computing and utility computing offers a way to provide computing resources when and where they are needed, but developers must factor in certain considerations during design. This session will provide an in-depth overview of three real-world case studies using Grid computing in combination with Web services and J2EE to create Internet-based SOAs. It is designed for application architects and developers, and attendees will learn how applications can be designed to operate in a distributed computing environment such that performance and scalability problems are bypassed during deployment.
