Java One 2010 Brazil Day 2 Trip Report - Pics & Slides
By arungupta on Dec 08, 2010
I gave a presentation on "Whats New in Enterprise Java Beans 3.1" and the slides are available:
The attendees seem to like simplified packaging (EJB-in-a-WAR and deployment descriptor-free), no-interface bean, cron-like syntax, and other features were well appreciated by the users. All other sessions were going pretty packed as well to the extent that some of the sessions are having a re-run today and some of today's sessions have moved to a much bigger hall. Make sure to note the changes.
After that, Alexandra and I presented at a MySQL Community Event on how Java EE 6, GlassFish, NetBeans, and MySQL present an ideal open-source stack for building Web applications very easily, the slides are available:
Vinicius Senger from GlobalCode arranged an impromptu discussion on Java-based Web Frameworks at end of the day. There were representations from Java EE 6, Wicket, GWT, VRaptor, Spring MVC, ADF, and Demoiselles. It was a lively discussion where each framework was talking about the pros/cons of different frameworks and the community was asking questions. CDI got good appreciation from different folks and it indeed is one of the most powerful technologies introduced in the Java EE 6 platform.
Matt Raibles "Comparing JVM Web Frameworks" presentation was discussed as well. The consensus was that the chosen frameworks are not an apple-to-apple comparison. For example, while Rails and Grails are complete stack, JSF2, Wicket, and Vaadin are presentation layers only. I gave the same feedback to him at Rich Web Experience as well so hopefully the matrix will be updated appropriately.
Also found some great deployments of GlassFish in this part of the world. We are looking for partners (System Integrators, Independent Software Vendors/Developers, Consultants, Training Partners) who can help us spread the message of GlassFish in South America. Drop a comment on this blog if you are interested.
For tomorrow, there are couple of changes to the list of Java EE 6 & GlassFish sessions ...
- "S320003 - Servlet 3.0 Extensible, Asynchronous and Easy to Use" moved from its original slot of (4:15 - 5pm) to (4pm - 4:45pm) and the location changes from Auditorio 1 to the Keynote Hall (on the ground floor).
- "S313189 - Complete Tools Coverage for the Java EE 6 Platform" moved from Auditorio 1 to Keynote Hall (on the ground floor).
And now day 2 pictures from Oracle Open World and JavaOne 2010 in Brazil ...
And finally the evolving photo album so far:
