The industry has seen the value of frameworks for persistence, user interface etc. But writing business logic is still a manual coding process - a problem, since it's often a significant portion of the code base. We will introduce and demonstrate a Transaction Logic Engine that plugs into Hibernate/JPA, and can express in 1 rule the equivalent of 100 lines of Java. The plug-in approach means it works out of the box for frameworks such as Spring MVC and Grails - both to be demonstrated in this hands-on talk.
Max Tardiveau has been writing software since the days when the word "software" sounded funny to most people. He holds an M.S. in software engineering from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. After working at Unisys on repository development, he joined Versata and consulted around the world on transactional business logic. He then founded Integrity Logic, a software and consulting company specializing in geo-enabled mobile apps, but he never lost his interest in automating software development, which brought him to start ABL with Val Huber.More About Max »
