Thoughts on Java EE and GlassFish from Oracle Open World

As I mentioned last week, we were able to get a number of talks on Java EE 6 at Oracle Open World and the Oracle Develop conference going on as I write this in San Francisco.  In looking for folks thoughts and reactions to what they saw, I came across a blog entry by Cay Horstmann that I thought hit on a bunch of the key points we were hoping to share there so deserved a mention.

A few quotes from his blog:

"I cannot overemphasize how much simpler EE6 is than just about any web programming model I know. All of the bad parts of the old EJB are gone. No XML. No crazy packaging of WARs and JARs inside EARs. Annotate your beans and persistent objects, and let the container worry about the database, transactions, clustering, and so on."

"Similarly, if you haven't given GlassFish v3 a try, you are in for a very pleasant surprise. It is fast. Startup is not just faster than JBoss, but faster than Tomcat! Hot deployment works great, there is a nice admin UI and a scriptable command line interface, and the Eclipse and Netbeans integrations are first-rate. I can't see myself going back to Tomcat—there just would be no point."

If you want to learn more, visit glassfish.org and download GlassFish v3 Preview which will give you early access to these new capabilities Cay mentions.

Java EE 6 at Oracle Open World and Oracle Develop

Oracle Open World comes around every fall and while Sun has been a sponsor in the past, for the first time, at least in my recent memory, we will have sessions for Sun software, specifically around Java, and more specifically for my interests around Java EE.  And not only are we at Open World but we are at the smaller Oracle Develop event being run at the same time.

At Open World, the Java EE specific sessions are:

  • S312765 - Java Platform, Enterprise Edition: The Foundation and Future of Your Enterprise - Tom Kincaid - Monday 4pm-5pm Marriott Salon 4
  • S312767 - Easy Database Access from Java with Java Persistence API 2.0 - Linda DeMichiel - Wednesday 10:15am-11:15am Marriott Nob Hill AB

And at Oracle Develop they are:

  • S312810 - Java Persistence API 2.0: The Latest News - Linda DeMichiel - Sunday 10:30am-11:30am Hilton Golden Gate 8
  • S312811 - Developing RESTful Web Services with the Java API for RESTful Web Services - Marc Hadley - Sunday 11:45am-12:45pm Hilton Golden Gate 8
  • S312812 - Enterprise JavaBeans 3.1 Technology Overview - Ken Saks - Sunday 1:15pm-2:15pm Hilton Golden Gate 8
  • S312807 - Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 and GlassFish Application Server V3 - Roberto and Jerome - Monday 4pm-5pm Hilton Golden Gate 8
  • S312808 - A Complete Tour of the JavaServer Faces 2.0 Platform - Jim Driscoll (and Andy Schwartz from Oracle) - Monday 5:30pm-6:30pm Hilton Golden Gate 8
We will also have a Java EE pod at both Open World and Develop.  If you are attending either or both events, stop by and say hi and have a look at some of the great stuff that Java EE 6 is delivering in the areas of rightsizing, extensibility, and developer productivity.
