JavaOne Track Highlights: Java and Security

By David Lopez

The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where to start looking? How to really know what JavaOne has to offer? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each one tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the second post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what they have to offer. Last week, we looked at the Core Java Platform track . Today, let’s look at the Java and Security track and a few featured sessions. 

The Java and Security track focuses on discussing the best policies and practices for keeping Java Technologies secure. Java runs on billions of devices, including desktops and servers, as well as embedded and edge devices, making it an attractive target for attacks. To combat this, the Java and Security track will show you the security tools, coding techniques, and innovative products that can help you stay secure. These sessions will not only give you the tools to manage your security, but will also bring you up to date on what you need to be aware of for your daily work. 

Mario-Leander Reimer, Chief Technologist at QAware GmbH, will be hosting a session on “Secure Java EE Architecture and Programming 101.” His session seeks to demonstrate the potential vulnerabilities in poorly written code, including security vulnerabilities that can arise from only minor errors. Also on the agenda is a discussion of how to safely handle open source libraries. Learn rules and tools for staying secure. 

Also offered on the Java and Security track is “Code-Level Security Games and Puzzles in Java” by Brenton Phillips. Take a fresh look at security by studying and solving Java code-level vulnerability puzzles. You’ll work with the presenter and attendees to solve these puzzles in time. You’ll be able to see a security-focused static source code analyzer in use, and you can bring these puzzles back to your team as a fun way to sharpen your security skills. 

Stay on top of your security at JavaOne with these sessions and more! You can view all sessions on this track by going to the Content Catalog and filtering by the Java and Security Track. And be sure to register today while the Early Bird Discount is still in effect!

A Glimpse of Java EE Track

Ivar Grimstad will discuss microservices and Java EE Security API at JavaOne this year! These are two hot topics that you don’t want to miss at JavaOne! And Ivar has credentials. He is a veteran Java EE advocate, speaker, blogger and open source hacker. Right now, he is involved with the two new Java EE 8 JSRs:  MVC and Security.

Check out his two sessions:

Meet Snoop, a Discovery Service for Java EE: In this session Ivar will introduce his very interesting new open source project named Snoop. Similar to Netflix Eureka, Snoop enables discovery and registration of Java EE based microservices. 

How Would You Improve the Java EE Security API?: This is an informal after-hours BoF on the newly minted Java EE Security API. As Ivar mentions in the interview it's an important part of Java EE 8 and a very important API to get right as it's primary goal is improving simplicity and portability for the platform. Ivar is hosting the BoF in addition to specification lead Alex Kosowski.

By David Lopez 

The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where to start looking? How to really know what JavaOne has to offer? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks  being offered at this year’s conference. Each one tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the first post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what they have to offer. Today, let’s look at the Core Java Platform track and a few featured sessions.

The Core Java Platform track includes material that is fundamental to Java technologies. It covers information like new developments in the Java programming language, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and Java library features. For example, JavaOne Rock Star Paul Sandoz is giving a session on “Effective Java Streams.” His session will take a look at Java SE Stream API, effective parallel execution, and moving forward to SE 9 and beyond. Hear tips and tricks that will change the way you use Java. 

Also offered is “Java SE 8: Keeping Pace with the Technology” by Sheryl Domingue. This is a Birds-of-a-Feather session, meaning that the session will be more discussion based and will take a broader look at SE 8 and the new tools it has to offer. This is a great chance to keep pace with the ever growing Java technology. You can view information about all the sessions in this track by going to the content catalog and selecting the Core Java Platform as a track filter.

JavaOne 2015 Java EE Track Committee: Ryan Cuprak

By Guest Blogger Reza Rahman - From Original Post

This is the fourth and last in a series of interviews for you to meet some of the committee members for the JavaOne 2015 Java EE track. We will next move on to interviewing some of the key accepted speakers in the track this year.

The committee plays the most important part in determining the content for JavaOne. These good folks really deserve recognition as most of them devote many hours of their time helping move JavaOne forward, often as volunteers. If JavaOne matters to you, these are folks you should know about.

This last interview is with my good friend Ryan Cuprak. If you are having trouble seeing the embedded video below it is available here.

Ryan is the founder of the Connecticut JUG, author, blogger, speaker, JavaOne Rock Star and Java EE advocate. He is a senior manager at Dassault Systemes. Ryan is a brand new and welcome addition to the committee. In the interview he shares his experience and expectations for the Java EE track this year.

He also wrote up an excellent blog entry on his experience as a new committee member. He had some pretty good insights and very kind things to say about the process, JavaOne and Java EE that's worth a read.

On this note, I would like to make sure you know that the JavaOne content catalog is now already live with a few preliminary fairly obvious selections we were able to make. None of the sessions accepted at this stage are from Oracle speakers on our track. The folks that we selected early for acceptance include David Blevins, Jonathan Gallimore, Mohammed Taman, Rafael Benevides and Antoine Sabot-Durand. They will be talking about Java EE Connectors (JCA), Java EE 7 real world adoption, CDI and DeltaSpike. I would encourage you to check out all the early selections in the catalog. We are working to finalize the full catalog shortly.

I hope to see you at JavaOne. Do stay tuned for more interviews with some key speakers on our track.
