JavaOne Latin America 2012 is a wrap!

Guest Author


Third JavaOne in Latin America (href="https://blogs.oracle.com/arungupta/entry/javaone_latin_america_2010_is">2010,
href="https://blogs.oracle.com/arungupta/entry/javaone_latin_america_2011_pictures">2011)
is now a wrap!



Like href="https://blogs.oracle.com/arungupta/entry/java_geek_bike_ride_sao">last
year, the event started with a Geek Bike Ride. I could not
attend the bike ride because of pre-planned activities but heard
lots of href="https://blogs.oracle.com/javaone/entry/geek_bike_ride_sao_paulo">good
comments about it afterwards. This is a great way to engage
with JavaOne attendees in an informal setting. I highly recommend
you joining next time!



href="https://blogs.oracle.com/javaone/entry/javaone_latin_america_opening_keynotes4">JavaOne
Blog provides a a great coverage for the opening keynotes. I
talked about all the great set of functionality that is coming in
the Java EE 7 Platform. Also shared the details on how Java EE 7
JSRs are willing to take help from the href="http://glassfish.java.net/adoptajsr/">Adopt-a-JSR program.



glassfish.org/adoptajsr
bridges the gap between JUGs willing to participate and looking for
areas on where to help. The different specification leads have
identified areas on where they are looking for feedback. So if you
are JUG is interested in picking a JSR, I recommend to take a look
at glassfish.org/adoptajsr
and jump on the bandwagon.

The main attraction for the Tuesday evening was the GlassFish Party.
The party was packed with Latin American JUG leaders, execs from
Oracle, and local community members. Free flowing food and
beer/caipirinhas acted as great lubricant for great conversations.
Some of them were considering the migration from Spring -> Java
EE 6 and replacing their primary app server with GlassFish. href="http://www.locaweb.com.br/default.html">Locaweb, a local
hosting provider sponsored a round of beer at the party as well.
They are planning to come with Java EE hosting next year and
GlassFish would be a logical choice for them ;)

I heard lots of positive feedback about the party afterwards. Many
thanks to Bruno Borges for organizing a great party!

Next day, I gave a presentation on "The Java EE 7 Platform:
Productivity and HTML 5" and the slides are now available:

With so much new content coming in the plaform:
  • Java Caching API (href="http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=107">JSR 107)
  • Concurrency Utilities for Java EE (href="http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=236">JSR 236)
  • Batch Applications for the Java Platform (href="http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=352">JSR 352)
  • Java API for JSON (href="http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=353">JSR 353)
  • Java API for WebSocket (href="http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=356">JSR 356)

And JAX-RS 2.0 (JSR
339
) and JMS 2.0 (href="http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=343">JSR 343) getting
major updates, there is definitely lot of excitement that was
evident amongst the attendees. The talk was delivered in the
biggest hall and had about 200 attendees.

Also spent a lot of time talking to folks at the OTN Lounge.


The JUG leaders appreciation dinner in the evening had its usual
share of fun.

Day 3 started with a session on "Building HTML5 WebSocket Apps in
Java". The slides are now available:

webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"
height="356" scrolling="no" width="427">

The room was packed with about 150 attendees and there was good
interaction in the room as well. A href="https://blogs.oracle.com/arungupta/entry/collaborative_whiteboard_using_websocket_in">collaborative
whiteboard built using WebSocket was very well received. The
following tweets made it more worthwhile:



A WebSocket speek, by @ArunGupta, was worth every hour lost in
transit. #JavaOneBrasil2012, #JavaOneBr


@arungupta awesome presentation about WebSockets :)



The session was immediately followed by the hands-on lab "href="https://github.com/jersey/hol-sse-websocket">Developing
JAX-RS Web Applications Utilizing Server-Sent Events and WebSocket".
The lab covers JAX-RS 2.0, Jersey-specific features such as
Server-Sent Events, and a WebSocket endpoint using href="http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=356">JSR 356. The
complete self-paced lab guide can be href="https://github.com/jersey/hol-sse-websocket/blob/master/lab-guide.pdf">downloaded
from here.



The lab was planned for 2 hours but several folks finished the
entire exercise in about 75 mins. The wonderfully written lab
material and an added incentive of href="http://www.amazon.com/Java-EE-6-Pocket-Guide/dp/144933668X">Java
EE 6 Pocket Guide did the trick ;-)

I also spoke at "The Java Community Process: How You Can Make a
Positive Difference". It was really great to see several JUG leaders
talking about Adopt-a-JSR program and other activities that
attendees can do to participate in the JCP. I shared details about href="http://glassfish.org/adoptajsr">Adopt a Java EE 7 JSR as
well.

The community keynote in the evening was looking fun but I had to
leave in between to go through the peak Sao Paulo traffic time :)
