Session will provide an overview of techniques and approaches Java
developers can use in day-to-day activities for integrating server-

Flex, Flash, AJAX and Silverlight. Additionally, you will learn about
the tools we have developed to assist with application development,
testing and runtime optimization. You will learn about client-side
code generators for remoting and data management use-cases, learn how
to create real-time messaging (pub/sub) applications with RIA front-
end, see a demo of remoting invocation debugger and on-the-wire
traffic visualizer. Finally, you will see a demonstration of user
behavior tracking and analytics for a Java application. The session
provides a lot of coding samples and API reviews. It is targeted at a
wide range of developers ranging from beginner level to very
advanced. Parts of the presentation will be useful for management
