RESTful services with Aerogear

RESTful services with Aerogear

April 16 2013

On March 29 the AeroGear project, sponsored by JBoss, released version 1.0 of its server and client libraries.  AeroGear Controller provides a powerful API exposing RESTful services, integrate with existing platforms, expose security and authentication services, and allow for the creation of services which can query and page through your service’s data.  AeroGear clients are available for iOS, Android, JavaScript, and Cordova.  These clients can consume RESTful JSON based web services from any server and provide convenient APIs for integration pagination, security, and local storage.
This talk will discuss the server APIs for publishing and developing RESTful services as well as the Android libraries for consuming RESTful services whether or not they are hosted by AeroGear’s server.

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!
