JMS2@London GlassFish User Group

Some of you may be aware that the London GlassFish User Group got launched a few months ago. The group is organized and sponsored by C2B2 Consulting. C2B2 continues to offer GlassFish support and C2B2 Technical Director Steve Millidge recently offered his pretty level-headed reaction to the discontinuation of Oracle commercial support for GlassFish - it's worth reading for perspective.

The Manchester, UK based JMS 2 specification lead Nigel Deakin recently led a session in the group on the new JMS 2/Java EE 7 features in GlassFish 4. The video for the talk is posted below. There's also my own slide deck on JMS 2 posted on SlideShare (with source PDF and abstract).

Do consider inviting Nigel to give a JMS 2 talk if you are relatively local to him. Also, consider supporting the group if you are local to it. More recently, Nigel presented a JavaOne 2013 technical session titled Easier Messaging with JMS 2.0 as well as a Birds-of-a-Feather session titled What’s Next for JMS?. Stay tuned to for video of the sessions to be posted (the slide decks are already posted on the linked JavaOne Content Catalog).
