London Underground and Java EE 6 Interactive Hackathon @ JAX London 2011 using NetBeans and GlassFish

Do you know what is common between London Underground and Java EE 6 ?
|They got together at JAX London 2011 in a slides-free, NetBeans-driven, interactive Java EE 6 hackathon. I've done similar NetBeans and/or Eclipse-driven sessions at other conferences as well but this is the most comprehensive I've ever done and also covered the widest range of Java EE 6 technologies as well. Adam Bien is certainly well known to do these kind of sessions all around the world and now I can certainly feel why he feels excited about doing them again and again :-)|
The hackathon started a little late because of the late food arrival but went on for 1.5 hrs, instead of the scheduled 1 hr and way beyond 10pm. We built an application that allowed to store the duration between any two tube stations. The sample application demonstrated the usage of @Entity, @javax.validation.constraints.\*, @Inject, @Stateless, @Singleton, @Schedule, CDI Events, @Path, @Interceptor, @Model, and much more. The most interesting part certainly was the interactive nature of the audience and discussing the different options.
Anyway, you can start with the following DDL:
create table underground (
id integer not null generated always as identity,
fromStation varchar(20) not null,
toStation varchar(20) not null,
duration varchar(5) not null,
Are you interested in having a similar hackathon at your conference / event / JUG ? :-)
