Java EE 7 at JUDCon Brazil 2013

What's new in Java EE 7: from HTML5 to JMS 2.0 was probably one of the hottest contents presented at JUDCon Brazil 2013. Room packed, people standing in the back and some couldn't join. The JBoss Users and Developers Conference is a conference organized by Red Hat across three countries (Brazil, India, and United States), with local and foreign speakers. But for me it was special. It was a pleasure to be part of this conference, considering that I wear another red hat. This shows how strong the Java community is, and that together, we build a better platform.

This session took attendees through some of the main updates of Java EE 7, and presented them with deeper details on topics like WebSockets and JMS 2.0. Some demos showed too, thanks to the magic of GlassFish 4.0 b83, Maven, and the Embedded GlassFish Plugin. Attendees could better understand the new possibilities and productivity gains of this major release of Java EE.

 If you want a more detailed description of each change that is going to be released within Java EE 7, please read Arun Gupta's session "The Java EE 7 Platform: Productivity++ & Embracing HTML5". You will be astonished. :-)
