  • IBM Rational Software Architect (RSA) by Sami Joueidi (IBM)

Presentations abstract:

Groovy/Java Integration:

Groovy is an agile dynamic language for the Java platform. Groovy has a Java like syntax along with many features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. This session covers a lot of ground including many interactive examples to highlight the powerful language features that make Groovy compelling. A lot of momentum is building in the Groovy and Grails communities right now and this session is aimed at Java developers who want to leverage the power of Groovy.

This session is targeted to demonstrate the power of Groovy and help Java developers understand how to leverage that power in their enterprise applications. Topics

– Everything Is An Object
– GStrings
– Closures
– Collections
– Groovy Builders
– Groovy Beans
– Categories
– Ranges
– Java Integration .

IBM Rational Software Architect (RSA) is an advanced model-driven development tool and feature complete for Java/J2EE development. The first part of the session will be a PPT that covers the features and capabilities of RSA. The second part of the session will be a demo. The demo will walk you through every step of designing and implementing a service oriented application using RSA v7. It includes:

* using UML diagrams to design and model an application,
* publishing the model information to a Web page, and
* transforming the design to Java code.
* The demo will conclude with an introduction to RSA v7’s new true round-trip engineering (RTE), which makes it possible to forward- and reverse-engineer Java code, giving you a head-start on implementing your designs.
