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?
