The demands placed on enterprise applications continue to increase. An ever more 
connected and integrated world makes growing demands on scalability and 
availability. Users demand richer interfaces and more sophisticated feature 
sets. Development teams become even more distributed. Offshoring is commonplace. 
Yet at the same time, IT needs to be more agile, to respond more quickly to 
changing business needs and priorities, to do more with less. In response to 
these challenges a new set of ideas and technologies is arising that threaten to 
disrupt established patterns of enterprise Java application development. In this 
talk, Adrian Colyer will discuss these trends and the responses to them, 
including the drive towards more dynamic and modular deployment models, dynamic 
languages, productivity frameworks that operate at higher levels of abstraction, 
virtualization technologies, cloud, and more.
