Mobile devices like smart phones and tablets are rapidly becoming the primary web client for many users. With this comes new requirements to support the vast number of devices, operating systems, resolutions, and features available.

This session will flush out some of those variables and clear up some of the uncertainty. Jay is going to outline several tools and development kits, that may be helpful for you as you’re getting started. The session also aims to help you map out a path forward with your mobile development plans.
7 reasons to love JBoss Application Server 7
Daniel Allen, Red Hat
2011-06-21 | 04:45 PM - 06:00 PM
This session dispels a long-standing misconception that Java EE application servers are inherently slow. JBoss Application Server 7 is slated to include more features than ever before and offer up to a 10-fold reduction in startup time and memory consumption over the previous generation. We believe it will be everything you've wanted in an application server: fast startup, lightweight footprint, modular down to the core, consistent administration and multi-server management mode. Under all that is a server powered by first class components developed in the JBoss Community (JBoss Modules, Weld, Infinispan, HornetQ, etc).
