When WTP Met Cloud
WTP is a mature and widely used framework which is a perfect match for developing and running web apps on Java application servers. In recent years however, traditional on-premise application server deployments are losing share in favor of Cloud and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) ones. That brings up the question - can WTP also serve this new breed of use cases and scenarios? Can it be successful in the sky as it is already on the ground?
In this session we will demonstrate that it's possible by showing live demos of an adopter tool for developing and deploying apps on a cloud platform. We will also show its integration with a unique innovative feature that allows debugging and profiling in the cloud (and WAN environments in general) - with the performance and user experience you are used to from local servers! Last but not least, we will outline the challenges we met, how we solved them, and some ideas for future improvements in the WTP framework.
