Java EE 6 and GlassFish Highlights From Devoxx
By jacki decoster on Nov 24, 2009
I was sad to miss attending the Devoxx conference in Antwerp, Belgium this year. But the Sun engineering team was definitely there - participating in a full schedule of conference keynotes, sessions and BOFs.
From the reports I've heard from the team, as well as various Twitter feeds, there was a lot of excitement building around the upcoming release of Java EE 6 and the GlassFish community.
Roberto Chinnici and Ludovic Champenois gave a keynote titled "Java EE 6 and GlassFish V3: Evolution of a Platform" and there were University Talks on "The Java EE 6 Platform", "Enhancing the JavaServer Faces 2.0 Component Model", and "SOA, OpenESB and OpenSSO Programming with Passion".
There were also sessions on "Managing
GlassFish on OpenSolaris" and "Deep Dive on the Java EE 6 Platform with
GlassFish V3" among others.
Steve Harris from Oracle even wore a GlassFish shirt during his keynote - See the Aquarium blog for a photo.
If you weren't able to attend Devoxx this year either, you'll be able to see all the sessions soon on the Parleys site.
