SPEAKERS: John Mallonee (Highmark, Inc.)

Java is no longer a new technology, but has been used for business applications for years now. However, not everyone has had the opportunity to work very closely with this application platform. Also, business applications written in Java continue to evolve and morph over time. This session will provide a quick review of basic terms and concepts for the language, how applications are developed, and the environment in which they commonly execute. We'll also look at some of the ways that DB2 is accessed from Java and the web including how security is handled to the application and to DB2. Finally, we'll address some common issues encountered by customers who deploy and maintain applications as well as changing trends. This presentation was originally made at IDUG NA 2007, but has been updated.
