JavaOne Moscow/Russia Trip Report

JavaOne Moscow/Russia was kick started this morning and followed the usual pattern of a strategy keynote providing an overall strategy of the Java platform, technical keynotes providing more detailed overview of Java SE, JavaFX, Java ME, and Java EE, and then there were hands-on labs and sessions. The big keynote theater was packed with 1300+ audience in the morning and then scattered to different rooms.

The "Develop, Deploy, and Monitor a Java E 6 Application on GlassFish" hands-on lab had about 40+ attendees. The network was a little slow and so it took a long time to download the maven repository. However as I was explaining the Java EE 6 applications, folks started drawing analogies with Spring and realizing how much simpler Java EE 6 has become from its predecessors. An existing Spring user pointed out that "Java EE 6 is much simpler than Spring because of the default conventions and require minimal configuration". Read a more engaged discussion on Why Java EE 6 is better than Spring.

Anyway, the content for the hands-on lab can be downloaded from here. It explains:
  • Walk through a Java EE 6 application
  • Create a 2-instance GlassFish cluster and front-end with a Web server and a load balancer
  • Show session replication when one of the instances fail
  • Use extensible monitoring infrastructure to generate application-specific monitoring data

I also delivered the Java EE Technical Keynote which gave an update on Java EE 7. It also showed a demo of how GlassFish automatically provisions service as part of the initial work in Java EE 7. The complete demo instructions, along with a video are available at glassfish.org/javaone2011.

Here are some pictures captured from the day:

Do you know the man in the last picture on right column ?

You probably will not see him in person. But he is the man who maintains the master JavaOne schedule, besides many other tasks. Its not an easy job as you can imagine :-)

Many thanks to Ralph Crawford for doing an outstanding job for all these years!

And now the complete album:

JavaOne Russia continues tomorrow so make sure you attend the sessions, talk with the speakers, and make the best use of this premier conference in your neighborhood.

For me, next stop is Great Indian Developer Summit!

Running by Moscow River

JavaOne Russia is starting tomorrow! I got in the city early this morning, slept a little but got up early because of jet lag.

New country, new city and how do you get familiar ? Run!

Running would you take you places that you would generally not see otherwise. And the hotel is right by the Moskva River with long empty sidewalks right next to it. Here is how my running route from this morning:

Fortunately, it was not "Moscow cold" and I enjoyed the run. I could've gone longer but had to revert back because of other activities already planned during the day. Here are some pictures captured during the run:

And then some more pictures from around the city ...

And the evolving album at:

JavaOne and Oracle Develop Russia starts tomorrow and I hope to see you there!
