Java EE 7 Survey

Greetings Java Developers,
We have created a short survey that will help us better understand which APIs and Java versions are the most important to you as a Java EE developer. This information will enable us to update our training material and certifications for Java EE 7 to better suit the Java community. If you can, please take the survey located at:

Your answers will remain anonymous, and you won't be contacted by Oracle as a result of answering this survey.

Getting started with the G1 Garbage Collector

Just before the Thanksgiving break I finished up my second Oracle by Example (OBE) course on garbage collection. This one is on the new G1 garbage available in Java 7. It provides and introduction and overview of this newly available collector. Here is the link to the course:

Getting Started with the G1 Garbage Collector

This is a follow up to this OBE on the basics of garbage collection.

Garbage Collection Basics

The OBE is based on the presentation given by Charlie Hunt and Monica Beckwith at this years Java One. Hopefully I have done justice to their most excellent session. As always, feedback and comments are welcome.

New and Updated Java Courses

The Java Curriculum team has developed several courses that are available through Oracle University.  The courses are available as instructor-led training (ILT), live virtual classrooms (LVC), and training on demand. Our titles include:

Java SE 7 Fundamentals - The Java SE 7 Fundamentals teaches students who have little or no programming experience about the Java programming language. The course teaches students the significance of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language, and the steps required to create simple Java technology programs.">

Java SE 7 Programming - The second of two courses that cover the Java Standard Edition 7 (Java SE 7) Platform explores the core Application Programming Interfaces (API) developers use to design and develop object-oriented applications with Java.

Java SE7: Develop Rich Client Applications - The course takes students through the process of designing a rich client application in a case study approach – analysis and design, and development of the key components of the application using the rich set of JavaFX graphics and media API.

Java SE 7 New Features - This new features course delves into the major changes and enhancements in the Oracle Java SE 7 release. This course is meant for the Java professionals who are already proficient with developing Java programs using Java SE 6 or earlier Java SE platforms.

Java ME: Develop Applications for Mobile Phones - This course teaches students how to use Connected Device Limited Configuration (CDLC) and the Mobile, Interface Device Profile (MIDP), and the Lightweight User Interface Toolkit (LWUIT) to develop applications for smart phones. Students get to develop applications that access a mobile database, and leverage the Location and Payment APIs.

Several of our courses support the Java Certification programs, which you can search for on the Oracle University Certification pages

If you are interested in free Java training, we are posting new Java content on the Oracle Learning Library on a regular basis. If you want to stay current, subscribe to the OLL using the RSS feed.
