Title:
Java vs JavaScript for Enterprise Web Applications
Stream:
Java and other languages (4)
Speakers:
Chris Bailey
Abstract:
The last few years have see a huge growth in the usage of JavaScript, to the extent that it is often reported to be the #1 programming language in use today. Additionally the arrival of server-side JavaScript through frameworks such as Node.js and Ringo.js, and JavaScript on the JVM through Nashorn and Avatar.js, mean that enterprise web applications written in JavaScript are not just a possibility, but a reality for companies such as LinkedIn, eBay, Yahoo, ADP and Dow Jones.
This session will compare and contrast the two platforms and describe the advantages of each for deploying, managing and monitoring highly scalable applications, and introduce IBMs strategy for building a common ecosystem around the two languages.
