Virtual Technology Summit – Spotlight on Java

Register now for OTN's new Virtual Technology Summit - September 16, 2015. Hear from Oracle ACEs, Java Champions and Oracle Product Experts, as they share their insights and expertise through Hands-on-Labs, highly technical presentations and demos that enable you to master the skills you need to meet today's IT challenges. Chat live with folks and ask your questions as you attend sessions.

Java Spotlight: Cloud, IoT and Java 8 - Java is an integral part of any cutting edge IT project. In this VTS, you will get a deep understanding of Cloud-enabled JavaScript stored procedures with Java 8 Nashorn, Java 8 Date and Time API and applications connecting devices with the cloud. There are three sessions in the Java track:

  • Connecting Devices to the Cloud - Taking healthcare as an example, this session will demonstrate using a mobile phone and a smart watch in combination with a Java based gateway, iBeacons and other sensors to monitor the activity of elderly people. With the help of an IoT cloud service this data can be analyzed to detect situations that might be critical (illness, bone fracture etc.). If such a case was detected, the cloud service can trigger enterprise applications. With this approach it might be possible to connect such a system to existing healthcare applications. This session will give you an idea how you can combine existing technologies to do something useful and help elderly people in case of an emergency.
  • Java SE 8 - Date and Time - The Date and Time API introduced in Java 8 provides a comprehensive and standardized package for date and time implementation. In this session you will learn the best ways to apply this new functionality in your projects.
  • Cloud enabled JavaScript Stored Procedures with Java 8 Nashorn - JavaScript is one of the most popular programming language and the natural choice for processing JSON documents. To process millions of JSON documents would you rather perform the processing in-place in RDBMS, returning only the result sets to the invoker, or ship the data to a middle-tier engine? Stored procedures allowing database processing thereby avoiding data shipping. However, to be portable across tiers and databases, JavaScript stored procedures need a standard database access API; Java 8 furnishes the Nashorn JavaScript engine which allows JDBC calls in JavaScript. For Cloud deployment, JavaScript stored procedures may be invoked through RESTful Web Services, turning these into Cloud data services.

Java 8 Launch Webcast on Tuesday March 25, 2014

Oh yeah, Java 8 is coming...

The single-largest upgrade ever to the programming model, Java 8 gives developers the power to extend innovation through the largest, open, standards-based, community-driven platform, spanning small devices to cloud-based development. That's why you don't want to miss the Java 8 Launch Webcast on Tuesday March 25, 2014 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 5pm GMT.

The event is hosted by Mark Reinhold, Chief Architect of Oracle's Java Platform Group, and features:

  • A live Twitter Q&A on Java SE 8 new features and enhancement with a panel of Java luminaries (use #Java8).
  • A live chat with Twitter CIO Adam Messinger
  • A panel discussion on Java 8 and the Internet of Things (IoT) with Peter Utzschneider (VP Product Management, Oracle), Geoff Lees (Sr VP, Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd.), Charlene Marini (VP Marketing, ARM), and Matt Eichenberger (Dir. Business Development, Qualcomm)

Register now for the Java 8 keynote address and more than 35 deep-dive technical sessions.
