JavaOne Track Highlights: Java Clients and User Interfaces

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 seventh post in a series on the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Last week, we looked at the Java and Server-Side Development track. Today, let’s look at the Java Clients and User Interfaces track and a few featured sessions.

This track is designed to give you the tools and skills you need to make sure your UI is effective as the rest of your application. With all the new ways that we interact with tech, including touch screen devices, user interfaces are no longer an afterthought. Each UI must be carefully planned if you are going to make each device just as user friendly while leveraging the unique benefits of each type of device to the fullest extent. The Java Clients and User Interfaces track will help develop your JavaFX, HTLM5, and JavaScript skills for everything from small, handheld devices to more powerful systems.

On this track, be sure to check out the featured session: “Building Applications with PostgreSQL’s jsonb Datatype, Play 2 Framework, and REST” by Anton Kazakov from Softarex Technologies Inc. This is a Hands-on Lab Session, meaning you’ll walk away with firsthand knowledge. The session was covered in last week’s blog on the Java and Server-Side Development track, so I won’t go into it at length here, but it is a great way to learn a technique for managing difficult class hierarchies and data that would usually require multiple databases. Also on the Java Clients and User Interfaces track is “One Codebase to Rule Them All: Going Mobile wit 2048FX” by Jens Deters and José Pereda. Looking to turn your JavaFX-made desktop game application into a mobile app that can be distributed on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store? This session will show you how! Using JavaFXPorts, only minor changes are required to take your game and make it mobile. Another great session to look out for will teach you to build a voice user interface (VUI). For information on building a VUI, check out “Speech Recognition in Java” by Breandan Considine from JetBrains, Inc. This session will give you the tools to build a speech recognizer by taking advantage of open source libraries, making it easier to focus on the VUI.
To see more from this track, head over to the Content Catalog and filter by Java Clients and User Interfaces. It’s shaping up to be a great JavaOne 2015. Make sure you don’t miss out on all the latest innovations in Java and the great opportunities to connect with the Java Community. Register  today!

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.
