Efficient architectures for creating MapReduce Pipelines 
by Fabiane Nardon, Java Champion and Big Data Expert

Crunching, aggregating, analyzing, transforming: real world data science applications usually perform several processing steps, each step adding more value to your data. Architecting and coordinating these processing pipelines in an efficient way requires a good understanding of the underlying mechanisms of MapReduce algorithms and a few tricks you only learn after you processed several terabytes. This presentation will show how to architect efficient MapReduce pipelines, how to integrate your pipelines with external datasources, like Redis, MongoDB or even relational databases, how to decide the best granularity for a job and when investing in a MapReduce architecture really pays off. 

JavaScript/HTML5 Rich Clients Using Java EE 7

by Reza Rahman, Java Evangelist and Java EE Expert

The sea change in HTML5 is likely to shift the pendulum away from today's thin-client based server-side web frameworks like Struts 2 and JSF to JavaScript powered next generation rich clients. With strong support for REST, WebSocket and JSON, Java EE is well positioned to adapt to this change. In this heavily code driven session, we will show you how you can utilize today's most popular JavaScript rich client technologies like AngularJS, Backbone, Knockout and Ember to utilize the core strengths of Java EE using JAX-RS, JSR 356/WebSocket, JSON-P, CDI and Bean Validation. We will also introduce Oracle's own JavaScript rich client solution code named project Avatar.
