NetBeans Day at Sun Tech Days, Chennai

I participated as a speaker in NetBeans Day organized as part of Sun Tech Days at Chennai last week and it was a great experience.The audience started filling up early [where else have you seen the hall filling up 30 minutes before the event starts !!]

Tim Boudreau had two sessions [An introduction to NetBeans 5.0 and a session on plug-in development and building applications on the NetBeans platform]. Kiran Patel's session on Java ME support in NetBeans was well received as well.

My session, was on J2EE and Java EE support in NetBeans 5.0/5.5 respectively.

NetBeans 5.0, clearly provides great out-of-the-box support for J2EE development and here is the list of demos I showed up on stage

    J2EE 1.4 support in NetBeans 5.0
  • Showed how well the J2EE blueprints [now with AJAX blueprints] are available off the IDE. This, IMHO, is a great way to learn J2EE best-practices and try them out straight out of the IDE.
  • Demonstrated how easy it is to create, edit, build, deploy and run a J2EE 1.4 web application - Pointed out how the HTTP monitor could be used as a great debugging/testing tool
  • Demo'ed creation and consumption of a simple "Hello World" [We localized it to "Vanakkam Chennai" during the presentation :)] web-service
  • Java EE 5.0 support in NetBeans 5.5

    NetBeans 5.5 is currently a work in progress, and my demo was based off the previous day's NetBeans nightly [200602072300] and Project GlassFish Beta candidate b32b. Talk about bleeding edge ... and it worked, except for a minor typo I made [how dumb.], and the friendly Chennai audience spotted the typo [Thanks!] and we had the demo come out just fine.

  • Demo'ed how easy it is to create a simple EJB30 Stateless session bean, build and deploy in Project GlassFish and write a simple servlet to exercise the bean.

Update: The slides are now available.

Thanks Balakumar for your comments and the pictures. You could keep track about all the happenings around Project GlassFish at the Aquarium http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/theaquarium and I shall try to blog as much as I can about Project GlassFish in this space as well. Thanks. --Siva.
