For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we will highlight some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect.
There's no better place to start this effort than an interview with Red Hat's Arun Gupta about his Java EE sessions at JavaOne. In the unlikely case that you don't know who Arun is, he is the former "GlassFish Guy", prolific Java EE advocate, author and blogger. He now enjoys a well-deserved and coveted role as the head of developer advocacy at Red Hat. A great deal of the current success of the Java EE and GlassFish communities can be attributed to Arun's tireless hard work, boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm. We are very honored to have Arun speak at JavaOne:
Arun has several key sessions on the track:
- Lessons Learned from Real-World Deployments of Java EE 7: There are already three fully compliant Java EE 7 platforms: GlassFish, WildFly and JEUS. In addition WebLogic is strongly on the path of becoming Java EE 7 certified and already supports some key Java EE 7 APIs in 12.1.3. A number of folks have been learning, evaluating and using Java EE 7 on these platforms. Some of these folks have even started to deploy Java EE 7 applications. In this practically focused session Arun discusses some key real world lessons learned from these known early deployments.
- Java EE 7 Soup to Nuts: In this equally practically focused tutorial (JavaOne tutorials are essentially two-hour long sessions), Arun goes beyond the Java EE 7 APIs and features to talk about what is needed to develop a real application end-to-end. He covers IDEs such as Eclipse, NetBeans and IntelliJ, platforms like GlassFish, WildFly, OpenShift and CloudBees as well as useful tools such as Forge, Arquillian, Hudson/Jenkins and JRebel.
If you are already a Java EE fan or still just evaluating, you will be well-served to attend Arun's sessions at JavaOne. In the months running up to JavaOne we hope to highlight a few more key folks and sessions, so do stay tuned.
The early bird offer for JavaOne expires July 18th so if you plan to come to JavaOne it would be wise to register early and save some money for yourself or your organization. I certainly hope to see you there.
