JavaOne Track Highlights: Java and Server-Side Development

By David Lopez

The JavaOne 2015 Content Catalog is live. We’ve got hundreds of great sessions covering all things Java related. To help you find exactly what you’re looking for, be it Server-Side Development, Security, or anything in between, the sessions have been placed into tracks. There are 8 tracks at this year’s conference designed to be the ultimate guide to help you stay on top of the latest innovations in Java technologies. This is the sixth post in a series on the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Last week, we looked at the Java and the Internet of Things track. Today, let’s look at the Java and Server-Side Development track and a few featured sessions. 

This track focuses on the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE). Looking to get the most out of Java EE 7 and look forward to 8? You’ve come to the right place. Sessions on this track will keep you moving along with the best new methods and updates for staying on top of security, persistence, CDI, transactions, Java Message Service 2.0, Concurrency Utilities, and batch APIs. Java EE experts will also teach you how to develop secure and scalable services with technologies like WebSockets, JSON, and JAX-RS 2.0. 

As far as featured sessions go, this track has 3 great Hands-On Labs to look out for. These sessions are unique because of their hands-on nature, meaning that you’ll walk away with some new tools in your belt. For example, Yuriy Artamonov poses a challenge in his session “Develop a Fully Functioned Business Application in Hours with CUBA Platform.” Can you build a genuine enterprise application with commercial value in just 2 hours? He’ll show you how in this session. You’ll utilize the CUBA Platform to create an application complete with a UI, business logic, security and audit, reports, and a REST API for a bicycle workshop. 

To get even more hands-on Java EE knowledge, check out “Building Applications with PostgreSQL’s jsonb Datatype, Play 2 Framework, and REST.” Developing a web application with PostgreSQL’s jsonb datatype and the REST API means that you can store all data in a single database, easily make data changes, simplify the way you manage difficult class hierarchies, save data in one table in JSON and relational view, and decrease your development time while speeding up web application performance, and Anton Kazakov from Softarex Technologies Inc. will show you how in this session. The third featured session was covered in last week’s IoT Track Highlights. It’s called “Highly Loaded Server-Side Multitask Management Systems Based on Java and Redis.” It’s a great session for those of you interested in server-side development, the IoT, or both. You’ll walk away with the knowledge of how to develop an IoT system utilizing server-based solutions. Check it out here

To see more from this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Java and Server-Side Development. Let’s not forget that this great technology is only possible because of contributions from the rich community that surrounds Java EE. What better place to get to know this community and to meet the some of the biggest innovators face-to-face than JavaOne? The Early Bird Discount is in its final days, so register soon, and don’t miss this year’s JavaOne!

Java EE 8 Update

The train has left the station with the results of the community survey. Expert groups are working right now on specifications for the dozen or so JSRs that will be included in the release. In the interview below, David Delabasse gives an overview of the two new Java EE APIs: Java Security and MVC. The Java EE evangelist team is sharing the progress of this new release, making sure that the community stays up-to-date. David's session, a Java EE 8 overview, is now live on Parleys.

JCP Adopt-a-JSR Meeting: Java EE Specs

by guest blogger Heather VanCura

Earlier this month we held an Adopt-a-JSR meeting with Java EE 8 Platform Specification Lead, Linda DeMichiel, and we also recorded an Adopt-a-JSR meeting in Prague with several of the Java EE Spec Leads -- JAX-RS (JSR 370), WebSocket (JSR 356) and JSON-B (JSR 367), Java EE Management (JSR 377). You can listen to the recordings and view the slides on the JCP.org multimedia page: https://jcp.org/en/resources/multimedia

Right now the Java EE 8 JSRs are in the early stages of development and are still forming their Expert Groups, but some of the suggestions for feedback at this early stage include providing feedback on requirements, use case development, or commenting/voting on issues in the JIRA issue tracker. Please use 'adoptajsr' tag in the JIRA issue tracker. You can find all of the links you need on the JCP.org page for each JSR, for example, for JSR 366 the url is: https://jcp.org/en/egc/view?id=366 (just change the last 3 characters of the url to the JSR number you are interested in: https://jcp.org/en/egc/view?id=xxx) or see full list of the Java EE 8 JSRs, filed to date. 

We are planning our next Adopt-a-JSR online meeting for this Friday, 19 December at 10 am pacific time with JCP Spec Leads Antoine Sabot-Durand, Manfred Riem and Ed Burns, on some of the Java EE 8 JSRs:
- JSR 365, Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) 2.0;
- JSR 369, Java Servlet 4.0;
- JSR 371, Model-View Controller (MVC) 1.0;
- JSR 372, JavaServer Faces (JSF) 2.3.

JavaOne Server-Side Java Track Preview

Java EE 7 has been out for a little over a year, and Java EE 8 planning has begun. With JavaOne fast approaching, I talked with Oracle Java Evangelist David Delabassee to find out what’s going on with Java EE and what’s happening at the JavaOne Server-Side Java track.

What can attendees look forward to at the Server-Side Java track?

There are two big topics: Java EE 7 in real-life deployments and Java EE 8 platform plans.
