An introduction to Jazoon09

Short introduction to Jazoon. Jazoon is the international technical conference for Java Technology in Zurich. It focuses on Software Developers and Architects, IT Decision makers, and Consultants all over the world. From 22nd to the 25th of June 2009, the conference takes place for the third time in Sihlcity Zurich.

Aspect Oriented Programming and MVC with Spring Framework

The Spring Framework is a proven, stable, high-quality platform ubiquitous in today's Enterprise Java world.
Spring depends on Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) and Dependency Injection, can be integrated into a JavaEE environment, and is considerably more powerful and complete than EJB.
This speech will cover how to use Spring AOP and Spring MVC with annotations to build better web applications with less code and less XML. While AOP caters for clearer and better-structured Object Oriented code, Spring MVC allows to build the Web Layer in line with MVC model Two. In addition, it will be shown how Inversion of Control through annotations can act as a glue among application classes.
Speech will be given in Italian. Q&A in either Italian or English.

Spring Framework's bean factory and application context

This technical speech will address a number of issues around configuring the Spring Framework, such as core bean factory, wire up of application objects, access to beans, autowire and dependency check, resolution of constructor, lifecycle callbacks, complex property values, and factory bean.
It will be shown how to use Spring's Factory Bean to achieve convention over configuration (for instance dao) that will result is reduced amount of configuration code.
In addition, we will show how to develop a custom xml configuration language for Spring.
Speech will be given in Italian. Q&A in either Italian or English.
