For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2015 we are highlighting some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect, right up until the start of the conference.
To this end we recently interviewed Ivar Grimstad. Ivar is a Java EE advocate, speaker, blogger and open source hacker. He is a part of the Java EE 8 MVC and Security JSRs. We wanted to talk to him about his two accepted sessions at JavaOne 2015, his expectations for JavaOne and his experiences in the JCP (click here if you can't see the embedded video):
The following are the sessions we talked about:
- Meet Snoop, a Discovery Service for Java EE: In this session Ivar will introduce his very interesting new open source project named Snoop. Similar to Netflix Eureka, Snoop enables discovery and registration of Java EE based microservices. There are understandably quite a few talks on Java EE and microservices at JavaOne 2015. A couple of other very interesting ones are From Macro to Micro(Services) and Back: Onstage Hacking with Java EE 7 by Adam Bien and Java EE 7 Applications as a Microservice with WildFly Swarm by Ken Finnigan of Red Hat.
- How Would You Improve the Java EE Security API?: This is an informal after-hours BoF on the newly minted Java EE Security API. As Ivar mentions in the interview it's an important part of Java EE 8 and a very important API to get right as it's primary goal is improving simplicity and portability for the platform. Ivar is hosting the BoF in addition to specification lead Alex Kosowski. Prior to the BoF, Alex will be presenting a conference session on the Java EE 8 Security API titled Finally, the Java EE Security API.
Besides Ivar's sessions, we have a very strong program for the Java EE track and JavaOne overall - just explore the content catalog. If you can't make it, you can be assured that we will make key content available after the conference just as we have always done.
