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 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.
