FISL 2009 Day 1 Report
By arungupta on Jun 24, 2009
I presented on "Creating powerful web applications using GlassFish, MySQL and NetBeans/Eclipse" as the first talk of FISL 10 yesterday. The room was only partial full being the first talk of FISL but got packed towards the middle so that was exciting. The slides are available here.
The key message is that NetBeans and Eclipse provide a seamless development/deployment environment for GlassFish.
The several demos shown in the talk are explained at:
- CRUD operations using NetBeans, JPA and MySQL
- Publish MySQL Table as a RESTful Web service
- Develop, Deploy and Debug Rails Application on GlassFish using NetBeans
- GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse
- End-to-end problem solving using GlassFish v3 + MySQL DTrace probes
- GlassFish Price/Performance Advantage
The soccer balls at the Sun booth in the pavilion were quite a hit as evident by the video below:
Come by again at Sun booth until the end of conference to get one for yourself :)
There were booths from Debian, Gnome, Firefox, Fedora and a host of other open source projects. There were community booths from local Java User Groups, Linux User Group, Open Solaris User Group and similar efforts. Some government and financial companies that heavily use/promote open source products were also present. And then there were other commercial vendors as well!
Some attendees were playing musical instruments to the local tunes which added to the festive atmosphere in the exhibitor floor. Enjoy the video below:
The day ended with great food at Na Brasa Churrascaria, love the caipirinhas!
