JDK 7 and Java EE 6/GlassFish at Java Noroeste




Simon Ritter and I presented on JDK 7/8/9 and Java EE 6/7 at Java Noroeste, the Java User Group in Sao Jose do Rio Preto, Brazil.

As characteristic of Brazilian hospitality, we were given a very warm welcome at the airport by about 8 JUG members. About 60+ attendees missed a local soccer (or football as called in Brazil) game on a Sunday evening which was very humbling. Some of the attendees even traveled over 100km to attend the talk. This absolute craze for Java can only happen in Brazil :-)

Simon talked about how Oracle is committed to make Java successful for everybody, the new features coming in JDK 7 and plans for JDK 8 and 9. I talked about Java EE 6 and GlassFish and showed how a web application can be easily created using NetBeans. The usual "kilobyte and miliseconds" deployment of Java EE 6 applications on GlassFish was very well appreciated by the Spring users who have to wait a LONG time for deployment of three-digit MB WARs.

Thiago Gonzaga, an ex-Sun Campus Ambassador, did an excellent job translating from English -> Portuguese for both of us. He is also arranging a Java Day for the local community so talk to him or post a message on their page if you'd like to participate or sponsor.

After the event concluded about 9:30, we had dinner at a local restaurant which was very relaxing.

Some pictures from the event ...





And the evolving album ...


Next stop Brasilia ...

And one of the most amazing thing is that a local Java developer, Paulo Jeronimo, has organized a community run at 6:30am tomorrow morning. He even planned the entire course starting at Golden Tulip Hotel:



So I think its going to be a good start of the day. And for all the runners (hopefully), I got Odwalla bars ... so be sure to be there and run together :-)

Hi Arun,

Can't Spring users use tomcat(or any servlet container/app server)'s shared lib directories to keep our library jars(orm, web framework etc), and still keep our application war in KBs and milliseconds deploy?

Thanks
