Learn about JavaEE 6 (Part 1 of 2)

  • August 10, 2010 · 6:00 PM
  • SUPINFO International University

In August, we are doing something special! Arun Gupta, from Sun - now Oracle, has generously offered to deliver a two-evening crash-course on Java EE 6 for our group! August 10th and 12th. While you can certainly get an overview of Java EE 6 online, Arun promised not only to explain to us what Java EE 6 is and why it matters, but also to get us to play with this new technology. That's right, this is going to be a hands-on workshop - assuming you are willing to get your hands dirty. You just have to bring your own laptops pre-loaded with JDK 1.6 U20+ and NetBeans 6.9 "All" version! Some of you may remember Arun from our May 12th, 2009 event when he talked about GlassFish. So, here is the ouline for this two-day bootcamp event: Tuesday, August 10th, 6:00-9:30pm * Overview of Java EE 6 with Roberto Chinnici (Java EE 6 spec lead) * Managed Beans 1.0 * Interceptors 1.1 * Servlets 3.0 * EJB 3.1 * GlassFish 3 Introduction Thursday, August 12th, 6:00-9:30pm (requires a separate RSVP) * JPA 2.0 * CDI 1.1 * JSF 2.0 * GlassFish 3.1 Features & Roadmap Sandwiches/wraps and drinks for this event will be sponsored by Tony K. Le from Apex Systems. As always, we'll be giving away books, and other goodies from O'Reilly, Sun/Oracle, JetBrains, as well as Apex Systems. About Arun Gupta: Arun Gupta is a GlassFish Evangelist focusing on Web Tier at Sun, now Oracle. He was the spec lead for APIs in the Java platform, committer in multiple Open Source projects, participated in standard bodies and contributed to Java EE and SE releases. This event is organized by Marakana, which happens to offer a number of Java EE training courses.

    This was a fantastic intro to Java EE 6. I really liked Roberto's down-to-earth overview of Java EE and its role in the enterprise Java world. In his workshop, Arun did an amazing job making Java EE 6 on GlassFish with NetBeans feel really approachable - if not too easy. Great participation from the audience. Great support from our sponsors. Too bad we were unable to record this event.

    The hands-on component worked great for me.

    Excellent event packed full of interesting information, presented by knowledgeable speakers.

    Andrew, I think it would be a good idea to post a zip of the code.

    It was a good intro to the JavaEE6 and able to get start quickly on many features via hello world programs. Would the slides or resource/blog links be shared to the group?

    Great presentation. I like the hands-on but it was a bit rushed. I recommend projecting the display much larger as it was very hard to see the screen.

    Here is Roberto's presentation:

    It was interesting to hear from the source which parts of EE6 they thought were most valuable, and where new things overlapped with old, and what advantages there were in using standards-based solutions over frameworks like Spring, even when they tend to be behind in usability and power. Also liked the taste of NetBeans, being an Eclipse user.

    Those with less experience have a problem interpreting the words Technology, Version, and Platform as synonyms for downloading. Otherwise eye opening

    The best JUG meeting I've ever attended. It was very informative, helpful and relevant. I particularly liked Arun's follow-along coding demonstrations. I would suggest that the speakers be encouraged to use a mic. If I had not been sitting two rows from the front, then I would have had a hard time hearing Roberto.

    It was very informative and though a bit rushed at the end, very worth my time.

    Really enjoyed both presentations. The fact that it was hands on added an extra dimension to the learning experience. Looking forward to the next session. Thanks to Roberto and Arun!

    This was my event and it was very well organized with great presenters. Interesting topic, and the material was useful for a wide range of audience.

    Roberto and Arun generously made their slides available to us:

    You should also check out http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/...­, which is Arun's blog with links to screencasts that shows a live coding session.

    Really enjoyed. Roberto gave a good high level overview of JavaEE (and he was funny) and Arun's talk was educational and easy to follow along with. Very impressed with how easy it was to get the examples working with NetBeans. Looking forward to Thursday.

    Jim mentioned good points. In addition, it would probably be helpful to have a downloadable zip file with the complete code for the hands-on project.

    Thank you so much, speakers and organizers. This evening was incredibly generous and helpful. A request for the future would be that when crash-courseing, speaking/progressing a little more slowly, bigger type on screen, the biggest screen image possible... would all help people stay caught up. For my part at one point I messed up the package declaration in a file and would have been lost for everything afterward if the rest of the room hadn't been having other problems of their own...

    Awesome stuff. Thanks for a great presentation!

    I am on Mac OS X and I am running Java SE 1.6.0_20 (build 1.6.0_20-b02-279-10M3065). Since Apple provides Java for its OS, you need to get it from developer.apple.com.

    I couldn't find JDK 1.6 U20+ for Mac. My OS is Mac OS X 10.6.4. Any idea? Thanks!

  • Aleksandar Gargenta

    I just heard from Arun Gupta, and he wants us to have the following pre-installed:
    - JDK 1.6 U20+
    - NetBeans 6.9 "All" version

    While it is certainly possible for people to use Eclipse or any other IDE with GlassFish 3/Java EE 6, for the purposes of this workshop, it will be easier if everyone is on the same platform.

  • Morgan Conrad

    For those of us who haven't done any J2EE in a few years, what should we pre-install on our laptops? e.g. which versions of Eclipse, NetBeans, JetBrains? Which JDKs, Apache jars, etc...
