JavaEE.Next(): Java EE 7, 8, and Beyond

Session Abstract:

Java EE 7 is here and the horizons for Java EE 8 are emerging. This session looks into the key changes the community can expect. The goal of this session is to foster interest and discussion around these changes.

Some of the changes discussed include retiring EJB 2 entity beans and JAX-RPC, greater alignment with CDI, WebSocket/HTML 5 support, a standard API for JSON processing, the next version of JAX-RS, an overhaul of JMS, long-awaited concurrency utilities, batch processing in Java EE and much, much more.

    It was very informative with a lot of topics and great flow to the organization of the group and presentation.

    You guys wouldn't happen to know of any projects on SourceFourge or GitHub that you're familiar with (preferably a game...)? Would you? The reason why I ask is because if I studied it and got stumped on something in the project, then I could ask you about what ever it was that I didn't understand and hopefully you would know the answer if you were familiar with the project.
