Monthly NYC Java Meeting: Learn Java EE 6!

  • Jun 8, 2011 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Title: Learn Java EE 6 in a NetBeans-driven session


The Java EE 6 platform allows you to write enterprise Java applications using much lesser code from its earlier versions. It breaks the “one size fits all” approach with Profiles and improves on the Java EE 5 developer productivity features. Several specifications like CDI, JSF 2, JAX-RS, JPA 2, and Servlets 3 make the platform more powerful. It also enables extensibility by embracing open source libraries and frameworks such that they are treated as first class citizens of the platform. NetBeans, Eclipse, and IntelliJ provide extensive tooling for Java EE 6. This slide-free session explain the key Java EE 6 concepts in a live coding sessions.

    I can't believe I missed a talk by Arun Gupta! If you too are kicking yourself for not being there, you can catch the launch videos for Java EE7 where you'll see Arun and others explain the new APIs:

    Pretty good meetup! very informative as alot of the areas that he covered are relevant and "hot" today. I recruit for Java Developers and these days I am routinely asking about experience with IOC/ CDI, Dependency Injection and restless web services. So I walked away feeling that Oracle was working the same market.

    Also, ProcessBuilder was added in Java SE 5 to enable easy execution of external programs.

    The java.lang.Runtime has an exec method, that will let you run another program if it is available on the system. An argument would usually be used to specify the file. For other programming languages, often there's a more advanced way to call them, like JNI, however. Google will probably have some examples for you. Not sure if I should have answered publicly or privately. Publicly, at least, people know they don't have to write the same thing!
