Free Webinar on WebSocket, JSON-P, HTML 5 and Java EE 7

As developers, there's nothing better than a decent show-and-tell. OLL-Live is offering a free webinar titled Java EE 7: Using Web Sockets for Real-Time Communication on July 10 (Wednesday) at 8 AM Pacific Time. It will demonstrate writing an HTML 5 front end using a WebSocket, JSON-P, and Java EE 7 backend.

Don't miss out, check out the details and register now! I did mention it's free, right :-)?

JCache Marches Onward!

As many of you know, JCache (JSR 107) narrowly missed Java EE 7. JCache is clearly a very important and long-anticipated API as indicated in the well-participated Java EE 7 survey. I am happy to report that JCache keeps making steady progress and recently posted a public review.

The review is open until August 5th and you are encouraged to get your comments in. You can send your comments directly to jsr107@googlegroups.com or enter issues on GitHub.

At the current pace, JCache should be ready well ahead of Java EE 8 and be an excellent candidate for inclusion. You should also be able to use JCache with Java EE 7 and Java EE 6 as a drop-in jar.
