LiveOak is a new JBoss Middleware project built from the ground up to be mobile friendly and cater to the needs of mobile application developers. Being lightweight and entirely RESTful allows you to hit the ground running in developing your mobile applications with LiveOak. We will provide an overview of LiveOaks' stack, what we provide OOTB to enable speedy mobile app dev, how the configuration can be modified, and our RESTful guiding principles. Then move onto an application showing how easily and quickly LiveOak can be integrated to provide the required back end. Lastly we touch on how the platform can be extended with your own services to provide additional RESTful resources.
