JavaOne Latin America concluded last week. The Java EE team
delivered the technical keynote, several sessions, a hands-on lab,
dinner with the Java EE hornblowers, attended good booth traffic,
and had numerous hallway conversations.
The keynote on the first day sharing the overall stratategy for Java
SE, Java EE, Java ME, and Java FX. The technical keynotes on the
second day provided more details on each of these technologies with
extensive product demonstrations for each one of them. Check out Geertjan's
blog explaining an end-to-end demonstration using Java FX
-> Java EE -> GlassFish -> MySQL.
The community keynote on the third day was organized by Bruno Souza
and Fabiane Nardon. There were very little slides and mostly demos
and interaction with other community folks. A complete replay of the
community keynote is available here.
I was fortunate to be included as part of this fun keynote. Vinicius
demonstrated how jHome
(a Duke's Choice
Award winner) can be used to open up a website driven by my
heart beat. Watch the video below (in Portuguese):
jHome certainly has very far-reaching implications. Imagine a doctor
being able to monitor your heartbeat remotely or use it for beer
mashing ;) Their next stop is JFokus,
Feb 14, 2012.
There is definitely a strong interest for Java EE in Latin America
as all the sessions were completely packed. The JAX-RS 2.0 session
was even moved to a much bigger room. The complete set of Java EE
slides presented by Oracle speakers are given below:
Adam, John, and I also delivered a hands-on lab on "Develop, Deploy,
and Monitor a Java EE 6 Application with Clustered GlassFish 3.1".
The packed room with about 40 attendees learned:
Walk through and deploy a typical Java EE 6 application using
NetBeans and GlassFish.
Create a two-instance GlassFish cluster and front end with a
Web server and a load balancer.
Demonstrate session replication when one of the instances
Use the extensible monitoring infrastructure to generate
application-specific monitoring data.
Most of the attendees were able to complete the lab. The complete
instructions are available.
Also check out a video with Fabiane Nardon talking about zero
downtime with Java EE and amazing performance using GlassFish:
At the recently concluded JavaOne Latin America, I had the opportunity to talk with Juliano Viana from Logicstyle about Java EE 6 and
their love for GlassFish. Watch the brief interview (in English)
And Loiane Groner graciously
helped us record the same video in Portuguese as well:
Get a quick preview of Oracle WebLogic Server 12c from Mike Lehmann
(Sr Director, Product Management, Fusion Middleware at Oracle) at
Oracle Open World/JavaOne Latin America 2011.
What are the main themes of this new release ?
Java EE 6 and Developer Productivity
Simplified Deployment and Management with Virtualization
Integrated Traffic Management
Enhanced Availability and Disaster Recovery
Much Higher Performance
And if you want to learn more about WebLogic 12c then a replay of
launch event from last week is now available
here. It covers 1-hour executive overview by Hasan Rizvi and
1-hour developer deep dive, with several demos, by Will Lyons.
The City of Sao Paulo marks
one lane exclusively for bikers (the pedal ones ;) on
Sundays and national holidays. The 45 km route through the
city is served by tons of volunteers providing directions
and safety with the traffic in other lanes. The lanes are
well marked and is a way to make to promote healthy
lifestyle in the city. The ride is mostly flat with one
small hill towards the end. Check out CicloFaixa for
Fabiane Nardon and gang used
this opportunity to arrange a Geek Bike Ride for the local
community to meet JavaOne speakers in an informal setting.
Our bike angels Fabiane, Claudio, and Fernando did a
fabulous job of keeping the riders together. Claudio not
only completed 4000 km on his bike yesterday but is also one
of the best know agile speakers in Brazil. I had the
opportunity to work with Fernando on the release of the largest
local guide deployment in Brazil and he is a sharp
guy. And everybody knows Fabiane, a Java Champion, Duke
Choice Award winner, entrepreneur,
java.net Tools Community Manager, and a lot more.
There were no technology discussions, just pure fun, laughter, and a
I shared a bunch of Odwalla bars with all the bikers and they were
well appreciated. Check out the picture below for the riders getting
powered by an Odwalla bar before the ride:
After a very successful JavaOne
San Francisco, the first JavaOne on the road for 2011 is
heading to Latin
America next week. There are 59 sessions delivered by several
rock star speakers and with 60% sessions delivered by the local
community. There are strategy, technical and community keynotes.
The community keynote on Thursday will particularly be lot of fun
with appearances from Java Champions, JUG leaders, jHome, and
several others. Also check out the Exhibitor
Floor Plan and don't forget to Register!
The complete session
schedule gives an overview for the list of technical sessions
and hands-on lab. There are several Java EE, GlassFish, and WebLogic
sessions and are highlighted below:

And this is Brazil so a fun element is important. There are the
usual Caiprihinas, Churrascaria, late night social dinners,
community engagement, and multiple other fun activities. Fabiane
Nardon and SOUJava gang are also organizing a Geek Bike Ride on
the Sunday (Dec 4th) before JavaOne. The 20k ride (map)
starts at 7am and goes through the streets of Sao Paulo. This is an
opportunity to meet some of the JavaOne speakers and attendees
outside the conference. They've even designed a t-shirt and 32 geeks
have signed up so far.
I'm glad my discussion with Fabiane during FISL
early this year for arranging this bike ride is finally taking
shape! I'm definitely looking forward to it and will be bringing
nice fruity Odwalla bars for all the riders. Be there to ride with
me and many others :-)
The conference circuit starts this Sunday with London, and then goes
to Holland, Sweden, Belgium, Portugal, and concluding with Latin
America later this year. Yes, I'll be home for a few days in between
Check out the complete Java EE day at JAX London on Nov 1:
It took 10 years for Devoxx to let me participate ... thank you
Developer Day Enterprise Java (Nov 18) is coming to Lisbon, Portugal
with Java EE 6 and Java EE 7, NetBeans, GlassFish and everything
around standards-based enterprise Java. Agenda is still a work on
progress but strap your seatbelts as we will share tons of exciting
content with you.
With local community driving the paper selection process and over
half the speakers from Latin America, the JavaOne Latin America was
quite a blast last
year. We are giving back to the community more by increasing
the percentage of non-Oracle sessions this time. We highly encourage
you to submit a session on anything and everything related to Java
and share your passion with the conference attendees.
The four tracks are:
Core Java Platform
Client Side Technologies, and Rich User Experiences
Java EE Web Profile, Platform Technologies, Web Services, and
Java ME, Mobile, Embedded, and Devices
Here are the submission guidelines:
Java-related topics (not technologies such as Flex, .NET,
Objective C, etc... unless it's specifically a topic about how
such things INTEGRATE with Java)
Interesting/innovative uses of Java
Practical relevant case studies/examples/practices/etc.
