If you are a Java developer who is considering moving your application to the cloud but don’t know how to get there, then you will benefit from this informative talk. 

The CloudBees platform is the world’s first Platform as a Service for Java that encompasses both development and deployment. We will show you how to deploy a Java EE web app to the CloudBees platform. 

But deploying to the Cloud is only part of a solution. To take full advantage of the cloud, teams can smoothly develop, build and test applications in the cloud in addition to deploying.  We will demonstrate the power of building in the cloud by taking the Java web app deployed and hooking it into the DEV@cloud continuous integration server, where we will use Jenkins (formerly Hudson) to develop and continuously deploy the application.

We will also show you how to manage DEV@cloud and Jenkins (on premise) through a Eclipse plugin developed by CloudBees.
