Devoxx is only a week away and the GlassFish community will have a strong presence at this major European developer conference. There is no dedicated "GlassFish AppServer" session (too much of a product pitch?), but rather a series of related technologies and sub-projects you might find useful to consider for your projects.
The "University" section of the conference will feature a "GlassFish in Action" 3-hour session (Tuesday @ 1:30pm) with GlassFish v3 Prelude, Atmosphere, Jersey, OpenMQ, OpenESB/Fuji, WebSynergy tooling, and GlassFish-partner Nuxeo (on WebEngine). Should be fast paced, energetic, and mainly demo-driven.
Other sessions include :
• Developing multi-language portlets by Satya Ranjan
• Atmosphere by Jean-François Arcand (portable Comet based applications)
• Project Fuji by Andreas Egloff (OpenESB.next, GlassFish v3, OSGi, IFL, & JBI)
• Building dynamic web applications with Comet, a BOF by Carol McDonald.
• Connectivity with OpenMQ by project Lead Linda Schneider.
• Java EE 6 Overview by spec lead Roberto Chinnici.
• The Java API for RESTful Web Services by spec lead Paul Sandoz.
• EJB 3.1 - from Legacy to Secret Weapon by Adam Bien, prolific blogger and consultant.
• 10 reasons Java EE develpment doesn't have to be painful, by yours truly.
The conference is now full (just like previous years) and the welcome page says : "3.200 attendees from 35 countries". Should be fun!
