Seminar: Flow with continuations
Level: Introduction
Get back in control of the natural flow of your application.

Continuations leverage the expressiveness of Java for the creation of re-enterable execution points. This presentation explains what continuations are and why they are useful. The benefits quickly become apparent through side-by-side comparisons with traditional flow management. You'll get an overview of the different approaches of today's tools and will see that continuations are handy in many application domains.
