Slide-Free Code-Driven Introduction to Java EE 7


We already learned a bit about JavaEE7 and WebSockes API and tried to get our hands dirty with JAX-RS 2.0. For our September event we are fortunate to have Arun Gupta back for a slide-free, code-driven walk-through the entire Java EE 7 stack.

The Java EE 7 platform focuses on Boosting Productivity and Embracing HTML5. JAX-RS 2 adds a new Client API to invoke the RESTful endpoints. JMS 2 introduces a new simplified API to align with improvements in the Java language. Long awaited Batch Processing API and Concurrency Utilities are now part of platform offering richer functionality. A new API to build WebSocket driven applications and JSON parsing and generation is now included in the platform. JavaServer Faces has added support for HTML5 forms. Several other improvements are available in this latest version of the platform. Together these APIs will allow you to be more productive by simplifying enterprise development. This slide-free code-driven presentation will provide a comprehensive introduction to the updated Java EE 7 platform using GlassFish 4. The attendees will learn the design patterns of building an application using Java EE 7.

As always, food, drinks, and the venue will be provided by our sponsors.

    I felt it a was a little unstructured. In part, JavaEE 7 is such a huge topic that trying to cover it non-trivially in an hour might have been a bit much. Perhaps a series of events covering sections of JEE 7 in more detail would have worked better.

    Great presentation. Wish there was more time, because it seemed like there was a lot more.

    It's too late for me to un-RSVP, but I am stuck at work (just a short walk away), so here's one seat released to the pool.
