JavaOne Brazil 2010 - Day 3 Slides + Pics + Special Guest ;-)
By arungupta on Dec 10, 2010
I started my day by giving a presentation on "Hyperproductive JSF 2.0" and explained the various key improvements in the Java Server Faces 2.0 such as:
- Facelets as templating language
- Ease-of-use to create composite components
- Integrated Ajax support
- Partial state saving
- System Events
- Resource handling
- Optional "faces-config.xml"
The second presentation of the day for me was on "Servlets 3.0 - Asynchronous, Extensibility, Ease-of-use" and explained the key improvements made in that area such as:
- Optional "web.xml" in common cases by using corresponding annotations
- Dynamic registration of Servlet
- Pluggability of additional frameworks using web fragments
- Asynchronous Servlets
- Security enhancements
This particular session turned to be slightly comical as Juggy, the mascot of JUGs, showed keen interest in the technology. He got super excited any time code was shown on the screen and has a particular liking towards NetBeans. He kept the audience entertained by asking really useful questions and surprised me on how quickly was able to grasp the concepts. Another effect of having Juggy in the session was the bloated attendance of 350+ for this particular session, thank you Juggy for making the session very interesting! Here are some tweets from the session:

The "Getting Started with Java EE 6" hands-on lab started with hiccups as the software was not installed on the machines. But many thanks to Ludo, Jerome, Sharat, and Petr who packaged all the material on a USB drive and then quickly installed on different machines. A couple of attendees were even able to complete the lab based and majority were able to make good progress.
The last session of the day was by Bruno Souza and Fabiane Nardon on "The Future of Java Developer" (CEHCK). They had great pyrotechnics (SPELLING CHC) display and were planning to have some fun but I had to leave early to accommodate the ridiculously long traffic times in Sao Paulo city :-) And I'm glad I because it took us 2 hours to reach airport, another 45 minutes to check-in, and about an hour to clear the security clearance. Jerome & Ludo had a longer and more adventurous ride to the airport so make sure to ask them details :-)
And now day 3 pictures from JavaOne 2010 in Brazil ...
