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.
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!

The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where do you start looking? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each track tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the third post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what they have to offer. Last week, we looked at the Java and Security track. Today, let’s look at the Emerging Languages track and a few featured sessions.
Also offered on the Emerging Languages track is “Porting C Extensions and Intimately Linked Libraries to the JVM.” In this session, Duncan MacGregor, a GE Staff Software Engineer, will walk through how GE moved its libraries over to the JVM. Focus will be on changing Virtual Machines and dealing with entire applications built with multiple languages. Another great session being offered on the Emerging Languages track at JavaOne is “Functional Programming: Writing Stateless Code in a Stateful World with Clojure.” Ever wondered how to make meaningful, stateless applications? Then be sure to check out this session to learn how to manage the state of functional programs with a demonstration of state management in Clojure applications.
