Versant Object Database 9: Today and Tomorrow
This session will highlight the most important changes for existing customers and provide guidance for migrating existing applications to VOD 9. You will also learn how VOD will change in upcoming versions and what to expect from us in the future.
Speaker: Andreas Renner, Vice President of Software Engineering, Actian

Versant JPA 3: Enterprise Ready Java Persistence
In this session we will show the advantages of using Java Persistence API (JPA) mapping-free with an object database. We will also take a look at enterprise level features like runtime schema evolution and HA-support with Veritas Cluster.
Speaker:
Christian von Kutzleben, Chief Software Engineer, Actian

Increasing Query Performance with Polymorphic Indexes
Starting with VOD 9, we provide a new indexing subsystem which allows significantly faster query execution in real use case scenarios. This session will provide you with insights into the implementation, compare it with the existing indexing mechanism and discuss ways to monitor query execution.
Speaker: Andreas Renner, Vice President of Software Engineering, Actian

Optimizing Object Navigation Using Entity Graphs and Burst Fetching
In this session we will give an introduction to JPA's Entity Graphs and Versant JPA's Burst Fetching feature and show how they can be used to reduce the number of client/server round trips.
Speaker:
Christian von Kutzleben, Chief Software Engineer, Actian

Planes, Trains and Automobiles: Rapid Prototyping with Versant JPA
If you expect planes or automobiles, you might be disappointed. However, if you've come for trains, you most certainly won't be! In this session we show how quick and easy it is to get a project started with the power of the Java Persistence API (JPA) together with an object database. During the session, we will create a rapid prototype of a ticket reservation system for a small tourist railroad. Attendees can pick up a free copy of the DVD "The Train to Yesterday" (while supplies last) - a must have for every train buff!
