In this episode we look at an old worn out application that has migrated from 3 different teams and 15 team lead changes. The poor application is now showing its years and doesn't perform like it did when it was first architected. Now through the help of a new platform, this application has an opportunity to shine again. Taking a look at past projects that have gone through similar transformations we will look at patterns and processes that can be leveraged to redesign traditional JEE applications into lightweight applications using Spring, CXF, SpringMVC, and SOA. Finally, we will walk through code examples to show how quickly applications can be developed using this new stack.
My career began with a need to teach and mentor. I found these skills to be invaluable in the field of information technology. I started doing basic cabling and network infrastructure although I always had a propensity for coding and software architecture. My specialty in information technology is the integration of multiple technologies to assemble them into business applications with a keen focus on open source frameworks and products. I have consulted for some of the largest corporations in the world with my primary focus in the last 7 years around cloud computing.More About Lee »
