Spark IT 2011: Java EE 6 & GlassFish 3 Talks + FREE Pass

CIOL and PCQuest (@pcquest) is back with its second annual conference. I had a great time there last year and will be back again for Spark IT 2011 on Mar 17/18 in Bangalore, India.

I'll be giving the following sessions:

  • Understanding Dependency Injection in the Java platform (11:25 - 12:25 on Mar 17th)
  • Java EE 6 Hands-on Workshop (14:30 - 16:40 on Mar 17th)
  • Building RESTful Web services in Java (10:10 - 11:10 on Mar 18th)
  • Simplifying Web Development using JSF 2 (11:25 - 12:25 on Mar 18th)

Check out ...

And now about the FREE pass ...

Would you like to attend this conference FREE ? :-)

I have a limited set of full conference pass that can be given to the loyal readers of this blog. You need to leave a comment on why you think GlassFish is the best open source application server along with your correct email id (will be hidden and shared only with the conference organizers). The first five comments will get a free pass to the conference worth Rs 3000.

Its only a conference pass, all travel, boarding/lodging is yours :-)

Let the comments begin ...

Technorati: conf sparkit bangalore india javaee6 glassfish


Hi Arun,

Because I think its the only application server which is completely based on the JEE 6 spec and hence its the best application server.

Here you go.

Glassfish provides a simple lightweight Admin console to deploy applications. It uses osgi as its platform and makes it simple to add modules. Its the first app server that supports full JEE 6 standards like JSF 2, JPA 2 and EJB 3.1.

Testing is also a breeze using embedded Glassfish. Tooling support is also there for both Eclipse and Netbeans

Hi Guptaji,

GlassFish is based on source code released by Industry Gaints like; Sun & Oracle Corporation. It has a very well designed and implemented clustering and high availability mechanism which distinguishes it as an open source application server. It uses a derivative of Apache Tomcat as the servlet container for serving Web content, with an added component called Grizzly which uses Java New I/O (NIO) for scalability and speed.

The best "open choice" is drived by balancing worth in some topics: maturity, sponsorship (Oracle in this case), communities and technology-inside innovation. Glassfish hold all of these on the top.

Glassfish is great in that its lightweight (compared to most of the J2EE platforms) and its microkernel architecture is fast!.

Choice of a web-console or a robust scripting interface that allows you to automate tasks like deploys or cluster setup are great.
