Lego, Robots and Java!

In this video, Java Evangelist Angela Caicedo talked about her new Duchess robot built with Lego Mindstorm. "We are moving into the Internet of Things and I am looking for cool devices that we can connect and use Java" said Angela   

The robot is connected to touch and color sensors, has a gyroscope to orient and prevent it from falling, 2 motors for the wheels and another for arms, and an infrared sensor for the remote control. 

Technical Article: JavaFX Integration Strategies

"You will rarely find isolated applications in the enterprise," says Adam Bien in the new OTN technical article entitled JavaFX Integration Strategies. Instead, an enterprise desktop application renders and manipulates the data of one or more back-end services exposed by an application server. This article focuses on the integration of Java EE services with JavaFX applications. It discusses synchronous and asynchronous communication with a JavaEE backend. LightFish and LightView were used as examples.

Author Adam Bien is a Java Champion, architect and Java developer. He is an Expert Group member for the Java EE 6 and 7, EJB 3.X, JAX-RS, and JPA 2.X JSRs.  He is the author of Real World Java EE Patterns—Rethinking Best Practices and Real World Java EE Night Hacks—Dissecting the Business Tier, and all around good guy.

Want JDK8 to be Great?

Uncle DukeDo you want JDK8 to be great? Duke needs *your* help to find issues and find them now! JDK 8 B116 EA Build is now available for download & test.

As Java 8 gets closer to the endgame we all need to help test and report issues. So please, add it as a JVM to your CI build, try running it at home and have a play with Lambdas!

You can get more details and resources on all of this at http://adoptopenjdk.java.net

As Java Champion Martijn Verburg said, "If you want Lambdas nice and early then testing Java 8 now *really* helps the whole Java community get a great release on day one."
