Minuteproject reverse-engineering short stories

Latvian JUG Riga presentation abstract

I have been contacted by the Latvian JUG to make a demonstration-oriented presentation over Minuteproject. This page covers the agenda of what I intend to show at Riga.
All the demos will start from scratch i.e. a DB model that is evolving across the presentation.
Main demos will target technologies: JPA2, REST, Spring, CXF, Openxava for reverse-engineering.
A new feature of Minuteproject is introduced: Statement Driven Development with a demostration for REST track.
Eventually a last demo will show how to get instantly a web site with Openxava.
