JavaOne San Francisco Call For Papers Extended

The JavaOne Call for Proposals is opened until April 23rd. Developers have a few extra days to get in those last minute submissions.

Stephen Chin suggested the following talk ideas on his blog

  • Java + Devices – With the Early Access of Java 8 for ARM, you can do a lot of cool stuff on tiny little devices.  Anyone for hacking Java onto a robot, quadcopter, or refrigerator? [well, maybe that last one wasn't so tiny...]
  • Java 8/9 Hacking – While the Java 8 and 9 releases are still forthcoming, you can already play with the bits via theEarly Access lambda releases and OpenJDK Jigsaw builds.  Why not get ahead of the curve and show us what Java development will be like 5 years from now!
  • 353-356-352-236-343 – What do these numbers have in common?  Yes, you guessed it correctly, these are some of the many JSR specs that make up the new Java EE 7 release.  There is a lot of ground to cover here, so share some of your JSON/WebSocket/Batch Kung-fu with your peers.  :)
  • Duke in 3 Dimensions – The new JavaFX 3D support opens up some pretty cool possibilities that were only fathomable in fancy JavaOne keynotes. Now the rest of us can play with real 3D APIs via the JavaFX 8 Early Access and create some compelling demos and presentations for JavaOne.

JavaOne San Francisco Top Talks Accepted


We started a new rolling admission process for JavaOne this year where we are reviewing and accepting some of the top talks while the Call for Proposals (CFP) is still open. This gives us a chance to highlight a few of the great speakers and talks coming in and encourages external submissions early and often.

If you haven’t already submitted to the JavaOne CFP, it is still open through this Friday. If your talk gets accepted you get a free pass to attend JavaOne, and the opportunity to speak to your peers and influence the future of Java development technologies and practices.

Talking JavaOne with Rock Star Adam Bien

Among the most celebrated developers in recent years, especially in the domain of Java EE and JavaFX, is consultant Adam Bien, who, in addition to being a JavaOne Rock Star for Java EE sessions given in 2009 and 20011, is a Java Champion, the winner of Oracle Magazine’s 2011 Top Java Developer of the Year Award, and recently won a 2012 JAX Innovation Award as a top Java Ambassador.

Bien will be presenting the following sessions:

  • TUT3907 - Java EE 6/7: The Lean Parts
  • CON3906 - Stress-Testing Java EE 6 Applications Without Stress
  • CON3908 - Building Serious JavaFX 2 Applications
  • CON3896 - Interactive Onstage Java EE Overengineering

I spoke with Bien to get his take on Java today. He expressed excitement that the smallest companies and startups are showing increasing interest in Java EE. “This is a very good sign,” said Bien. “Only a few years ago J2EE was mostly used by larger companies -- now it becomes interesting even for one-person shows. Enterprise Java events are also extremely popular. On the Java SE side, I'm really excited about Project Nashorn.”

Nashorn is an upcoming JavaScript engine, developed fully in Java by Oracle, and based on the Da Vinci Machine (JSR 292) which is expected to be available for Java 8.  

Bien expressed concern about a common misconception regarding Java's mediocre productivity. “The problem is not Java,” explained Bien, “but rather systems built with ancient patterns and approaches. Sometimes it really is ‘Cargo Cult Programming.’ Java SE/EE can be incredibly productive and lean without the unnecessary and hard-to-maintain bloat. The real problems are ‘Ivory Towers’ and not Java’s lack of productivity.”

Bien remarked that if there is one thing he wanted Java developers to understand it is that, "Premature optimization is the root of all evil. Or at least of some evil. Modern JVMs and application servers are hard to optimize upfront. It is far easier to write simple code and measure the results continuously. Identify the hotspots first, then optimize.”

He advised Java EE developers to, “Rethink everything you know about Enterprise Java. Before you implement anything, ask the question: ‘Why?’ If there is no clear answer -- just don't do it. Most well known best practices are outdated. Focus your efforts on the domain problem and not the technology.”

Looking ahead, Bien said, “I would like to see open source application servers running directly on a hypervisor. Packaging the whole runtime in a single file would significantly simplify the deployment and operations.”

Check out a recent Java Magazine interview with Bien about his Java EE 6 stress monitoring tool here.
