Apache TomEE (Java EE Web Profile) by David Blevins CEO and Founder of Tomitribe

6:00 - 7:00 Netoworking & light dinner - Thanks Google

7:00 - 7:15 Announcements

7:15 - 8:45 David Blevins CEO and Founder of Tomitribe will talk about TomEE

8:45 - 9:00 Q&A

Apache TomEE is the Java EE 6 Web Profile certified version of Apache Tomcat and combines the simplicity of Tomcat with the power of Java EE. The first half of this session introduces TomEE and shows how Tomcat applications leveraging Java EE technologies can become simpler and lighter with a Java EE 6 certified solution built right on Tomcat. The second half jumps right into action and gives a coding tour of TomEE, including quickly bootstrapping projects, doing proper testing with Arquillian, and setting up environments. If you're a Tomcat lover or a TomEE enthusiast, this is a presentation you don't want to miss! 


David Blevins is the technical inspiration and visionary behind Tomitribe’s devotion to support Open Source Java software. He is a veteran of Open Source Java EE in both implementing and defining Java EE specifications with a strong drive to see Java EE simple, testable and as light as Java SE. David was a key contributor and driver of Apache TomEE’s Web Profile certification which lead him to win a JavaOne Rock Star award in 2012. TomEE combines the simplicity of Tomcat with the power of Java EE.

Prior to Tomitribe, David was with Gluecode, where he co-founded Geronimo in 2003, which was later acquired by IBM to be rebranded and distributed as WebSphere Community Edition. He was also the co-founder of OpenEJB in 1999 and Apache TomEE in 2011. David was a member of the EJB 3.0, EJB 3.1 and Java EE 6 Expert Groups. David is a current member of the EJB 3.2 (JSR 345) and Java EE 7 (JSR 342) Expert Groups. He is a contributing author to Component-Based Software Engineering: Putting the Pieces Together from Addison Wesley and a regular speaker at JavaOne, ApacheCon, OSCon, JAX and Java-focused conferences.

    Thanks for great presentation and great project! Configurable/managed services (jpa/ws/jms etc) would make it even better.

    David gave a great talk tonight. Many thanks. I really enjoyed my inner aha moments when I saw him showing clever refactoring tricks, as well as his big-picture style slides about the Java EE landscape. I look forward our next meet-up.

    If you come to a German JUG in the near future or e.g. events like JavaLand, I'd love to meet you there. No time for US before end of year, nor DevoXX or other conferences before Christmas (only Eclipse DemoCamps or JUG meetings, possibly some Hackathons, all in Europe...)
