Most Java developers are quite happy to focus their efforts on server-side code; they view the browser as an untamed world that is plagued by cross-browser incompatibilities, cryptic markup, and sub-standard scripting languages. However, new approaches are emerging which attempt to “tame” the browser. In this talk, Tim will present technologies such as the Dojo toolkit, JSON, and REST. But more importantly, he’ll present it from the perspective of the J2EE developer. If you’ve ever wondered how to leverage “Web 2.0” technologies without becoming an HTML/CSS/JavaScript expert, this talk is for you.


Tim Crowley is an Enterprise Architect who works for an International company that makes Machines for Business. His current responsibilities focus on integrating global systems and exploring new and emerging technologies.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

June 20, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
