MAIN TOPIC ABSTRACT
Apache TomEE Examples & Demo
In this talk, Apache TomEE (pronounced "Tommy") will be introduced.Tomee is an Enterprise Container built on top of the Tomcat Servlet Container. It incorporates OpenEJB and thus can house Enterprise Java Beans. It supports JMS, JAX-WS, JAX-RS and CDI (Context Dependency Injection).
A general introduction will be provided by John Adams and a more in depth view with sample code will be provided by Brian Marshall.Participants can follow along by downloading Java from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk7-downloads-1880260.html, Eclipse from http://eclipse.org/downloads/ and Tomee from http://tomee.apache.org/index.html.

BASIC CONCEPTS ABSTRACT
Apache TomEE Introduction
Apache TomEE, pronounced "Tommy", is an all-Apache stack aimed at Java EE 6 Web Profile certification where Tomcat is top dog. It combines several Apache projects together, including Tomcat to create a JEE 6 standard compliant server. We will explore a bit of history about the project, the components that are included in the distributions and go through the installation process. We will also discuss how to integrate TomEE with the Eclipse IDE for easy deployment.
