Bring the Desktop to the Cloud with RAP

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

An overview of building and deploying a RAP application to the cloud. Includes a case study and demo of a real world application for managing academic competitions, and tips for leveraging the flexibility offered by cloud providers such as Cloudbees and Amazon.

In an environment where most of the end-users will only use the application a few times and may not be able to install software on their own desktop, a web-based application removes the deployment headache. RAP allows developers to build fully-featured applications which run in a user's web-browser by leveraging existing expertise in Eclipse and SWT. This talk will examine all of the moving parts and how to pull them all together to create a successful application in the cloud.
