JDK7 Launch and Java EE 6/GlassFish in Goiania

Keep reading for report on my Brazil trip so far (FISL12, Java Noroeste, Brasilia) ...

Goiania is a small city about 200km from Brasilia and the enthusiasm of the local Java community is extremely high. The JUG leaders, architects, developers, administrators, IT directors, and everybody else is always excited to showcase their work.

Instead of taking the flight, Paulo Jeronimo drove me to Goiania. He is an extremely passionate GlassFish fan, presented at local conferences on GlassFish 3.1, and even recorded screencasts that are available on GlassFishVideos (part 1, 2, and 3). He has helped the local community in architecture and performance tuning of applications running on GlassFish. He is certainly a great local resource if you are interested in GlassFish support in Brazil.

I met a customer that has been using GlassFish since 2006 and have multiple instances running all around Brazil. In all these years, GlassFish has never been the source of their problems, ever. Their instances are a mix of 2.1 and 3.1 and the migration from 2.1 -> 3.1 was seamless, no issues at all. Generally customer visits are a mix of happy/not-so-happy items but this particular visit was quite a breeze :-)

On Jul 7, the day of JDK7 launch, I talked about the new features in JDK 7 to three different set of audience concluding at the Goiania JUG. And there were customer visits in between so the day was pretty exhausting but very exciting. The JUG meeting particularly ended by celebrating JDK 7 launch and watch the following two short videos for that:






Thank you Paulo, Raphael, Marcelo, Filipe, Alessandra, and everybody else for helping me with everything in Goiania! My Portuguese <-> English translator in the JUG meeting was also excellent so consider her if you are in the neighborhood.

Check out some pictures from Goiania ....











I managed to get couple of runs with Marcelo in a nearby park and here is one of them:
And, as always, the evolving album:
