The Great Application Server Debate
There are many application servers on the market today, but which are right for you as a developer? This session looks at the popular application servers—including Tomcat, TomEE, GlassFish, Jetty, WebSphere, Oracle WebLogic Server, Liberty Profile, and JBoss—and analyses them from the point of view of a developer. It focuses on performance, config management, open source compliance, feature richness, tooling, and developer productivity, among others. Come to this session to learn about the main differences between the application servers on the market today and understand which might be best for your needs. App Servers will be scored in each category and the audience will decide which App Servers rock and which… do not!
Class loaders are at the core of the Java language. Java EE containers, OSGi, NetBeans modules, Tapestry 5, Grails and many others use class loaders heavily. Yet when something goes wrong, would you know how to solve it? In this session we’ll take a tour of the Java class loading mechanism, both from JVM and developer point of view. We will look at typical problems that you get with class loading and how to solve them. ClassNoDefError, IncompatibleClassChangeError, LinkageError and many others are symptoms of specific things going wrong that you can usually find and fix. For each problem we’ll go through a hands on demo with a corresponding solution. We’ll also take a look at how and why classloaders leak and how can you remedy that.
