The Virtual Technology Summit (VTS) delivers interactive Java tech content from Java Champions and Oracle experts to your desk.
These interactive, online events, sponsored by the Oracle Technology Network (OTN), are coming in November:
Each event feature four technical tracks, each with a unique focus on specific tools, technologies, and tips: Java, Database, Middleware and Systems. Registration allows you to attend any session on any track.
The Java Track includes three code-heavy sessions:
Transform Your Code to Java 8
by Venkat Subramanian, Java Champion
The new facilities in Java 8 are about to change the way we write code. Our code will become more expressive and concise. But exactly how? This presentation takes several common Java code examples, discusses the core idea expressed in the code, and transforms that code to use the facilities in Java 8. Watch and interact as you see Java code go through a weight loss program right in front of your eyes.
Java Mission Control for Earthlings
by Jim Weaver, Java Evangelist, Oracle
Java SE Advanced contains an application named Java Mission Control, which consists of two facilities essential for developers and IT production support. These facilities are JMX Console and Java Flight Recorder, both of which help you monitor applications and tune them for high performance. This session will present features of Java Mission Control, as well as relevant concepts.
Exploring Java EE
by Josh Juneau, Tech Writer and Author
The Java EE tutorial will walk users step-by-step through the development of an application (MoviePlex) using Maven. The development will take place within NetBeans 8.x IDE, it will demonstrate how to add project dependencies via Maven, and perform various development tasks leveraging some new features of Java EE 7. We’ll delve into the creation of views using JSF and PrimeFaces, binding to managed bean controllers via CDI, utilization of the Batch Processing API, JMS, and WebSockets. In the end, you will have a better understanding of how a typical Java EE application is developed, and how to implement solutions using some of the latest features of Java EE. Note: This a hands-on lab that requires you to have Java EE and the NetBeans IDE downloaded before you attend the session.
We'll kick off the track with Java Community Update by Tori Wieldt. There will be places to hang out and meet other attendees between sessions. View the full agenda, abstracts, and participation instructions on the VTS Event Resources Community Space.
