Topic: Best practices for interoperable web services

One of the key features of web service technology is the ability to integrate heterogeneous platforms and systems. However, it doesn't seem to be that simple to achieve the promised interoperability in practice.

Very frequently developers get stuck with interoperability issues of their web service application. In many cases, the reason for these problems can be found in the development approach they used.

In this talk, we'll have a look at the "Contract First" approach and how it leads developers to truly interoperable web service applications, sailing around many hidden traps. You will learn how this approach can be used when using Java to develop your applications and which tools can be helpful along the way.

Thilo will also present a selection of best practices for web service development, which he collected over the past years working with this technology.
