Productivity Tips for Java EE and Spring Developers

In this live coding session, we’ll build a Java EE application using JBoss Forge, deploy it onto Wildfly and test it using Arquillian. All of this is possible while barely writing a line of code! We’ll also create a microservice using JBoss Swarm. If you’re more into Spring we’ll also show you how to create a Spring application from scratch, use Spring Boot and how you can rapidly develop you applications using JRebel. There will be a bunch of other tools and tips in this session, so if you want to write code like a pro, this is the session for you!
