Abstract:
The needs of application serving in the enterprise have evolved over the years, and WebSphere Application Server (WAS) has changed a lot in 16 years. In the early years WAS helped define the Java EE platform. Today WAS is helping to set the standard for Java in the cloud - from quickly deploying lightweight and engaging applications in PaaS environments, to accelerating deployment of complex enterprise topologies via patterns to IaaS infrastructure. In this session, I'll talk about some of the latest WAS features and describe how WAS is evolving to continue to meet enterprise needs, on native, virtualized and PaaS infrastructure. I'll talk about developer ease of use, deployment flexibility, operational resiliency, partner ecosystem and more. Come and learn about our Right Fit App Server approach and how you can best leverage WAS.
