For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 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 Kito Mann. Kito has long been a respected JSF consultant, popular speaker, author and JCP expert. He is the editor-in-chief of JSFCentral.com, co-host of the Enterprise Java Newscast, host of the JSF Podcast interview series, and the author of JavaServer Faces in Action from Manning publications (I met him a long time ago in the process of writing EJB 3 in Action).
Kito has one the highest number of talks from a single speaker in the Java EE track this year. We wanted to talk to him about his JSF sessions at JavaOne 2014, as well as JSF generally:
The following are the sessions we talked about:
- JSF 2.2 Deep Dive: This tutorial is a two-hour deep dive into all the new features in JSF 2.2 and is probably one of the best bits of training you can have on the technology.
- PrimeTime JSF with PrimeFaces 5: This session is a look into what is new in PrimeFaces 5, easily the most popular part of the JSF plugin ecosystem.
- JavaServer Faces Antipatterns and Best Practices: This is an invaluable session if you are a JSF user. Kito shares his wealth of experience as a JSF consultant and navigates the best practices, patterns and anti-patterns for the technology.
- Mobile JavaServer Faces: This is a deeply well researched session on the available resources for developing mobile applications using JSF. If you are a JSF user being asked to develop mobile functionality, this session is definitely for you.
- JSF 2.2 in Action: In this one hour session, Kito will overview the features introduced in JSF 2.2 using demos and real life context.
Besides Kito'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.
