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.”

Greg Wilkins' Jetty/Servlet 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 Greg Wilkins. Greg is the mastermind behind Jetty and a long-time key contributor to the JCP, particularly for the foundational Servlet specification. In fact Greg is likely to be instrumental in the upcoming Servlet 4 specification slated to be included in Java EE 8. He will likely be the only person in the Servlet 4 expert group that is also part of the IETF HTTP 2 working group. We wanted to talk to Greg about his Jetty/Servlet sessions at JavaOne 2014 and HTTP 2 generally:

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

  • Jetty Features: In his open-ended Birds-of-a-Feather session, Greg will share the latest features added and to be considered in Jetty.
  • Into the Wild with Servlet Async IO: In this deeply technical session, Greg will be exploring the ins-and-outs of the Servlet 3.1 asynchronous I/O feature. If this is a topic that interests you, the session is probably your best opportunity to gain knowledge from a true subject matter expert.

Bear in mind, Oracle's own Ed Burns will have a detailed session on Servlet 4/HTTP 2. Besides Greg'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.

Java and Security

In a Java Magazine interview, Jim Manico (pictured on the right) describes his JavaOne session on security. "I will be speaking about the top coding techniques and essential tools, including several Oracle Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP), Apache, and Google open source Java projects that will help developers build low-risk, high security applications". Jim is an author and educator of developer security-awareness training. You can find more details of his session in JavaOne content catalog

His session is part of a dedicated track about Java and Security, which addresses topics ranging from security tools and coding techniques to innovative products, and includes participation from recognized security leaders discussing policies and best practices. While the value of offensive security techniques is recognized, the focus of this track is primarily on defensive measures. 

Check out all the topics in the Java and Security track
