Robots, NetBeans IDE, and Raspberry Pi with James Gosling

James Gosling is now chief software architect of the Wave Glider, the flagship product at Liquid Robotics. The Wave Glider is a self-propelled, autonomous marine robot that collects and transmits ocean data. The Wave Glider will be on display exclusively at the Java Hub in the JavaOne exhibit hall during the entire conference. 

Since Gosling started at Liquid Robotics, he has re-architected the onboard software and refined a data-as-a-service cloud to provide direct, real-time access to ocean information. Java, which he invented, has played an increasing role in ocean data transmission and analysis.  

“Being able to debug and profile robots out at sea is a truly life-altering experience,” Gosling explains. He uses a set of tools—consisting of editors, debuggers, and profilers—that are part of the NetBeans IDE. At the JavaOne 2014 NetBeans Community Day, he will present the session “James Gosling, Robots, the Raspberry Pi, and Small Devices” [UGF8907] on Sunday, September 28. He will also present “Debugging and Profiling Robots with James Gosling” [CON6699] on Wednesday, October 1. Geertjan Wielenga, Mark Heckler, José Pereda, Johannes Weigend, Shai Almog and Jens Deters will join him to discuss those two topics. 

Join him as he closes out the JavaOne Community Keynote with a fun, historical perspective of the genesis of Java, and a T-shirt toss! The Community Keynote will be held in the Marriott Marquis, Salon 7/8/9, on Thursday, October 2, 2014

Get the Latest on GlassFish at JavaOne

Find out the latest on GlassFish and Java EE in two sessions at Sunday’s Oracle Users Forum at JavaOne.

First, the “GlassFish Roadmap and Executive Panel” [UGF9120]  will cover the current status and future roadmap for GlassFish and Java EE. Oracle’s John Clingan, Anil Gaur, and Cameron Purdy will be on hand to answer your questions at this informal session. Come with questions, leave with answers.

That session will be immediately followed by “GlassFish Adoption Story and Deep Dive” [UGF9123] , where you will hear about who is adopting GlassFish and Java EE in real life. Egyptian Java User Group (EGJUG)] Leader Mohamed Taman will share the story of the first-known production deployment of GlassFish 4 and Java EE 7 in a deployment for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Food Programme (WFP). This session will also explore the newest cool features in GlassFish, including the extensible GlassFish command-line framework. 

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.  

What’s happening with Java EE 8?  

At the beginning of 2014, we conducted a three-part survey to ask the community what we should focus on for Java EE 8. The community selected some key features and helped us set some priorities.  

At the end of the day, the JCP [Java Community Process] and the Expert Groups decide what should be part of Java EE 8.  But the survey gave us a strong basis to start with, and we have recently started a few JSRs for Java EE 8.  

Is there an overall theme that you are seeing for Java EE 8?

JavaOne Rockstar Speaker Hendrik Ebbers

In a Java Magazine article, senior Java architect Hendrik Ebbers talks about his JavaOne sessions and JavaOne. "There will be some very cool JavaFX, community, open source and Internet of Things talks this year. The talks are always very professional; I have never experienced a bad one. So don't miss the talks" he explains.   

Hendrik focuses on research and development, Swing, JavaFX, middleware and DevOps. He wrote the book titled "Mastering JavaFX 8 Controls" and will present six JavaOne sessions:   
  • Smart UIs for Mobile and Embedded in JavaFX introduces a new JavaFX theme that is made for embedded devices and will fit perfect in all the cool new Internet of Things and mobile products. 
  • DataFX: From External Data to a UI Flow and Back shows how the different DataFX components make it easy to manage external data by using well-known Java technologies.
  • Enterprise JavaFX, an overview of various best practices for communication between server and client, async background tasks, MVC approaches, and the designing of complex dialogue flows
  • Extreme GUI Makeover.  JavaFX 8, a new UI toolkit, offers a lot of amazing features to help you craft modern-looking and interactive UIs.
  • The JavaFX Community and Ecosystem introduces the JavaFX ecosystem including third-party frameworks and popular knowledge base. It also illustrates the functionality and synergy effects between the libraries with a live coding session. 
  • Test-Driven Development with JavaFX

Antoine Sabot-Durand's CDI Sessions at JavaOne 2014

By Guest Blogger Reza Rahman

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we are highlighting some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect, right up until the start of the conference.

To this end we recently interviewed Antoine Sabot-Durand. Antoine is the newly minted CDI specification lead. In the short time that he has been at Red Hat, he has already had the CDI 1.2 specification under his belt and he has already started work for CDI 2 (CDI 2 is a major overhaul of the specification targeted for Java EE 8). I have known about Antoine since he worked onAgorava, a social media module for CDI/Java EE. Besides working on the CDI specification, he is also responsible for the CDI ecosystem at Red Hat - currently focused on DeltaSpike.

We wanted to talk to Antoine about his CDI sessions at JavaOne 2014:

Antoine has several sessions on the track that he talked about:

  • Introducing Contexts and Dependency Injection: This is essentially a CDI primer for folks that are still newcomers or evaluating. It's probably worth attending as a refresher even for more experienced folks.
  • Going Farther with CDI 1.2: This is a slightly more advanced session talking about less commonly used features as well as the changes in CDI 1.1/CDI 1.2. The CDI ecosystem generally is also covered.
  • The Path to CDI 2.0: This is essentially a CDI futures talk. It's probably the best way to find out what is in the works for CDI 2.
  • CDI 2.0 BOF: This informal Birds-of-a-Feather session is a rare chance for you to interact directly with the folks leading the CDI specification and share your ideas, questions and feedback. It's probably the best and easiest way for most folks to contribute directly to the CDI specification.

Besides Antoine's sessions, we have a very strong program for the Java EE track and JavaOne overall - just explore the content catalog. If you can't make it, you can be assured that we will make key content available after the conference just as we have always done.

Driverless Cars and Java

Paul Perrone is a regular fixture at JavaOne, and this year's conference is no exception. Perrone, founder and CEO of Perrone Robotics, will give a session called "Automated Vehicle Testing with Java." Perrone will talk about his company's Autonomous Vehicle Test System, developed for the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS). The system, written entirely in Java, will be used to independently test the safety of crash-avoidance systems.

“Many of today’s vehicles already have ‘crash-imminent braking’ and other features,” says Perrone. “But up until now, the IIHS hasn’t really had a way to test how well these technologies work in real-world situations with cars traveling at highway speeds.”
