Location Aware apps are everywhere and we use them heavily in our day to day life. You have seen the stuff that Foursquare has done with spatial and you want some of that hotness for your app. But, where to start? In this session, we will build a location aware app using HTML 5 on the client and scalable JavaEE + MongoDB on the server side. HTML 5 GeoLocation API help us to find user current location and MongoDB offers Geospatial indexing support which provides an easy way to get started and enables a variety of location-based applications - ranging from field resource management to social check-ins. Next we will add realtime capabilities to our application using Pusher. Pusher provides scalable WebSockets as a service. The Java EE 6 backend will be built using couple of Java EE 6 technologies -- JAXRS and CDI. Finally , we will deploy our Java EE application on OpenShift -- Red Hat's public, scalable Platform as a Service.
