Scala, JavaFX, Java EE 7, and Enterprise Integration
This session shows you how to use Scala, one of the hottest technologies, to build a JavaFX application that talks to a Java EE 7 application server. Scala is an object-functional language that improves on Java in several areas. Java EE 7 is the enterprise edition "taking it to the cloud" with virtualization. This session shows how to build a Scala application with ScalaFX, a domain-specific language and framework, and tie it to an application that stores data to the cloud. It addresses the limitations of the technologies chosen to write the application. Finally, it also discusses the hot issue of the moment: Should I stick with the Spring Framework or dump it to go with the Java EE specification.
