Why Join the JavaOne GlassFish Community Events?

If you are active in the GlassFish community, you probably already know about the GlassFish community events that take place on the Sunday that kicks off JavaOne San Francisco. The event has long been the rallying point for the GlassFish community at JavaOne.

This year, the events are taking place from 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM. Our agenda is grouped into two separate sessions with a brief break in the middle:

To add to these sessions to your schedule, follow the session links above to the JavaOne Content Catalog and use the Schedule Builder widget on the top right hand side.

If you are a GlassFish user or even just a friend, this is the most important JavaOne event that you really should not miss, and for good reasons:

  • Learn the insider's view of Java EE 7, Java EE 8, GlassFish 4.1, GlassFish 5, community, success, metrics and roadmap for the future from none other than GlassFish product manager John Clingan himself.
  • Get a chance to listen to and interact directly with the Oracle Executives responsible for Java EE and GlassFish during the GlassFish Executive Panel.
  • Hear success stories from real world Java EE/GlassFish users and get to ask them your questions. This year Mohammed Taman will be sharing the story of the first known real world deployment of Java EE 7 on GlassFish 4. Mohammed will tell us about a highly innovative and important project he helped develop for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the World Food Program (WFP). The project won the Duke's Choice Award for 2014.
  • Learn about the coolest features included in GlassFish from the GlassFish engineers themselves. This year key GlassFish engineer Martin Mares will be sharing the details on the GlassFish extensible command line framework.
  • Meet key members of the Oracle GlassFish team and community including Advocates, Architects, Java EE spec leads, and Product Managers.
  • Attending the event is one of the strongest ways you can show your support for GlassFish and Java EE under Oracle, get your voice heard and help shape the future.

Note that this is a JavaOne Sunday User Group session, so you will need a JavaOne pass to get in. Like all JavaOne events, there is a limited amount of registrants allowed for the session, so if you think this is something that is worth your while, you would be wise to pre-register via the JavaOne Schedule Builder as soon as possible.

Do check out the details for the event on the GlassFish.org JavaOne Sunday Community Events Page, including the agenda, timings, panel question ideas, participant bios and story outlines. There's also the details on how to join the evening after-party.

You should also consider attending the GlassFish Birds-of-a-Feather session and a Birds-of-a-Feather session I am holding with the London GlassFish User Group on contributing to GlassFish - especially if you cannot make it on Sunday.

Greg Wilkins' Jetty/Servlet Sessions at JavaOne 2014

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we are highlighting some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect, right up until the start of the conference.

To this end we recently interviewed Greg Wilkins. Greg is the mastermind behind Jetty and a long-time key contributor to the JCP, particularly for the foundational Servlet specification. In fact Greg is likely to be instrumental in the upcoming Servlet 4 specification slated to be included in Java EE 8. He will likely be the only person in the Servlet 4 expert group that is also part of the IETF HTTP 2 working group. We wanted to talk to Greg about his Jetty/Servlet sessions at JavaOne 2014 and HTTP 2 generally:

Greg has several sessions on the track that he talked about:

  • Jetty Features: In his open-ended Birds-of-a-Feather session, Greg will share the latest features added and to be considered in Jetty.
  • Into the Wild with Servlet Async IO: In this deeply technical session, Greg will be exploring the ins-and-outs of the Servlet 3.1 asynchronous I/O feature. If this is a topic that interests you, the session is probably your best opportunity to gain knowledge from a true subject matter expert.

Bear in mind, Oracle's own Ed Burns will have a detailed session on Servlet 4/HTTP 2. Besides Greg's sessions, we have a very strong program for the Java EE track and JavaOne overall - just explore the content catalog. If you can't make it, you can be assured that we will make key content available after the conference just as we have always done.

JavaOne: Java EE Community Update and Panel

 At this JavaOne 2014 edition, one of the coolest things Java EE developers might be interested to engage with is definitely the Java EE Community Update and Panel CON2131. In this panel developers will have the opportunity to hear from major vendors who support and invest in the Java EE Platform what they have to say about the plans for Java EE 8 as well its future, discuss hot topics (why not talk about Microservices?) and how these relate to Java EE and many other great things. Or maybe what their current products have to offer and even some of their roadmaps!

What would you like to ask in this panel? Fill this form!

Representing major vendors, and a community member, we will have:

Vendor Representative Twitter
Oracle Cameron Purdy @cpurdy
Red Hat Mark Little @nmcl
Tomitribe David Blevins @dblevins
IBM Kevin Sutter @kwsutter
Community * Adam Bien @adambien

This panel will start with a brief Community Update to share with attendees current plans of Java EE 8 from the JCP Expert Group, but what we have differently from previous editions of such panel, is that you have the opportunity even if not attending JavaOne, to ask vendors whatever you want.

Send us questions by filling this form and we will pick the best ones to ask them during the panel. And don't forget to follow @Java_EE on Twitter!

Ed Burns' Servlet 4/HTTP 2 Session at JavaOne 2014

For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2014 we are highlighting some key sessions and speakers to better inform you of what you can expect, right up until the start of the conference.

To this end we recently interviewed Ed Burns. Ed is a veteran of Sun and now Oracle. He has been and is instrumental in pushing the JSF ecosystem forward as specification lead. Besides his specification lead work Ed is well regarded as an author and speaker on his own right. In addition to carrying the JSF torch Ed will be co-leading the key Servlet 4 specification for Java EE 8, along with Servlet specification guru Shing Wai Chan. The primary goal of Servlet 4 is to enable the fundamentally important changes in HTTP 2 for the entire server-side Java ecosystem. We wanted to talk to Ed about his Servlet 4 session at JavaOne 2014 and HTTP 2 generally:

The details for the Servlet 4 session can be found here. Ed has several other key sessions on the track that we hope to talk to him about separately in the near future:

  • What’s Next for JSF?: In this key session, Ed will be sharing the next steps for the continued evolution of the JSF specification in Java EE 8.
  • Where’s My UI? The 2014 JavaOne Web App UI Smackdown: The UI space for web applications, especially in the Java ecosystem continues to be as hotly contested as ever. This is especially true with the (re)introduction of JavaScript based rich client frameworks like AngularJS. This lively panel brings together experts representing the diverse schools of thought for web UIs. Ed will be representing JSF of course. Neal Ford will moderate the panel as an independent and hopefully reasonably neutral party.
  • Adopt-a-JSR for Java EE 7 and Java EE 8: Adopt-a-JSR has been a reasonable success for Java EE 7. With Java EE 8 we are planning to strengthen it far more as away of getting grassroots level participation in the specification efforts. This session will introduce Adopt-a-JSR, share how it worked for Java EE 7 and what we plan to do with it in Java EE 8. Ed will be sharing his perspectives on Adopt-a-JSR for both Java EE 7 and Java EE 8.

Besides Ed's sessions, we have a very strong program for the Java EE track and JavaOne overall - just explore the content catalog. If you can't make it, you can be assured that we will make key content available after the conference just as we have always done.

JavaOne Java EE Track Content Finalized (A Detailed Preview)

I am very pleased to share with you that the JavaOne Java EE track content is now finalized. In this brief but detail-rich entry on my personal blog, I want to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about the track, key content and star speakers this year. The collective passion and dedication of all the folks that submitted helped us construct a very strong offering for the community at large. JavaOne is a key part of the global Java community far beyond the walls of Oracle and all of you are a large part of keeping it successful.

I hope to see you all at JavaOne. In the next coming weeks and months we will be sharing more details on the Java EE track, content and speakers at JavaOne. Lastly having been on the other side of the fence I know as much as you might come to JavaOne, it might not be a practical reality for you for a variety of good reasons. I want to remind you that we make a point to make JavaOne content openly available to all. That being said I want to tell you that you should make the pilgrimage to JavaOne at least once as a Java developer.

Java EE/GlassFish Adoption Story by Kerry Wilson/Vanderbilt University

Kerry Wilson is a Software Engineer at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He served in a consultant role to design a lightweight systems integration solution for the next generation Foundations Recovery Network using GlassFish, Java EE 6, JPA, @Scheduled EJBs, CDI, JAX-RS and JSF. He shared his story at the JavaOne 2013 Sunday GlassFish community event - check out the video below:

Kerry outlined some of the details of the implementation and emphasized the fact that Java EE can be a great solution for applications that are considered small/lightweight. He mentioned the productivity gains through the modern Java EE programming model centered on annotations, POJOs and zero-configuration - comparing it with competing frameworks that aim towards similar productivity for lightweight applications. Kerry also stressed the quality of the excellent NetBeans integration with GlassFish and the need for community self-support in free, non-commercial open source projects like GlassFish. You can check out the details of his story on the GlassFish stories blog.

Do you have a Java EE/GlassFish adoption story to share? Let us know and we will highlight it for the community.

The JavaOne Java EE Track: Thanks, a Sneak Peek and an Invitation

As you know the JavaOne CFP is now closed. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of those that submitted their thoughtful topics and all those who considered submitting. We had the highest number of JavaOne CFP submissions in the recent few years. This is a testament to your passion for the Java community and it is a great start on the road to keeping JavaOne a true success.

In terms of the Java EE track we now have all the raw material we need to construct a strong selection. In the next few weeks we will be working hard with the review committee to carefully sort through all the submissions we have at hand. You should begin to hear back as to decisions on your submissions around early Summer.

I want to remind you now not to be discouraged if you don't get the response you are hoping for. You should remember that you are competing against some of the best and brightest of Java at a global scale - especially so in the Java EE track. As much as we would like for things to be perfect in the end all of this is also based on all too fallible human judgement applied through a fairly intricate process designed with checks, balances and fairness in mind. If your session does not get accepted this year, you should definitely consider honing your submissions and trying again next year. If you are indeed selected I hope you see it as the testament to your abilities and good fortune it truly is. Either way, I hope you will consider coming to JavaOne to experience the incredible talent, energy and intellect in the air.

Invited Speakers/A Sneak Peek
One of the things we are doing differently for JavaOne this year is that we have a small number of well-deserved invited speakers. Besides helping us put together some early content this is a great way to give credit to some of the folks in the community. The following are the folks we have the honor to invite to the Java EE track this year with a bit of a sneak peak about what they will be talking about (as some of you know we have also invited a small number of folks personally to submit via the normal CFP process in addition to these super stars):

Adam Bien needs little introduction. He has been a key Java EE advocate, author, JCP expert and Java Champion for a long time. His passion for Java EE, knowledge as a consultant and skill as a presenter have few parallels. Adam will be talking about just how lightweight Java EE application design can be and other topics.

David Blevins also needs few introductions. He is an excellent speaker, a long-time JCP expert, Java EE advocate and powerhouse developer behind the highly innovative Apache OpenEJB and TomEE projects. David just recently founded Tomitribe, a company offering commercial support for TomEE. David will be talking about exactly why Java EE is a game changer developers should be enthusiastic about and other topics.

Patrycja Wegrzynowicz is the founder and CTO of her own company, a strong technical mind, a JavaOne veteran and a regular speaker at many conferences worldwide. Just some of her interests include patterns/anti-patterns, security, persistence and performance tuning. Patrycja will be sharing her insight on performance tuning techniques for complex JPA 2.1 domain models and other topics. We anticipate her talk would be interesting and valuable to many of you.

Arun Gupta is the former "GlassFish Guy", prolific Java EE advocate, author and blogger. He now enjoys a well-deserved and coveted role as the head of developer advocacy at Red Hat. A great deal of the current success of the Java EE and GlassFish communities can be attributed to Arun's tireless hard work, boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm. We are very honored to have Arun talk about some lessons learned from real world Java EE 7 deployments and other topics.

Anatole Tresch is a key engineer at Credit Suisse and one of the few brave souls with enough initiative to lead JCP JSRs despite not working for a major technology vendor. We are very proud to invite Anatole to talk about the Java EE configuration effort that he is currently helping launch. He definitely deserves the support of the Java EE community and has much to offer in terms of insight on Java EE and the JCP. We look forward to seeing him at JavaOne.

Keep in mind that JavaOne is now already open for registration. There are definitely some advantages to registering early. JavaOne Content Chair Stephen Chin outlines the reasons in an excellent recent blog post.

I hope to see you all at JavaOne. In the meanwhile as always if you have any questions never hesitate to reach out.

David Heffelfinger's Java EE/GlassFish Adoption Story

David Heffelfinger is the Chief Technology Officer of Ensode Technology and an ardent US based Java EE/GlassFish advocate. He has authored no less than four titles on Java EE/GlassFish. David shared a Java EE/GlassFish adoption story at the JavaOne 2013 Sunday GlassFish community event - check out the video below:

He detailed how he convinced a long time customer to upgrade their application servers and use Java EE/GlassFish with PrimeFaces by hacking together a quick demo. Using the combination of Java EE 6, GlassFish, PrimeFaces and NetBeans allowed him to lead a relatively inexperienced team in delivering the first version of the application in just three weeks. David also mentioned that using GlassFish as a learning tool helps keep his skills sharp and in-demand as GlassFish adopts the newest Java EE APIs faster than the other options. You can check out the details of his story on the GlassFish stories blog.

Do you have a Java EE 6/GlassFish story to share? Let us know and we will highlight it for the community.

Last Call to Submit to the JavaOne Java EE Track

This is a first and last reminder from us to all of the folks out there that the JavaOne CFP closes on April 15 - just about two weeks from now.

The procrastinator in you might be thinking two weeks is plenty of time. In reality if you haven't started working on your submissions yet, you are probably setting yourself up for some stress that will likely result in a weak submission. This is especially true if like most of us you will need to collaborate with others or get your boss's approval for your submission. Putting things in perspective the CFP has already been open for about a month so other folks already have a hefty head start to maximize their chances of getting accepted.

We have already had some very decent submissions on the Java EE track that has enabled us to get some early acceptances out and gear up the review process as I write this. That being said, we want to make sure everyone in the community has a fair chance to help us build a strong Java EE track agenda by submitting their best ideas. As always, never hesitate to get in touch if you have a question.

Here are some hopefully helpful hints to help you out:

What We Are Looking For
Consider the following as inspiration for submissions to the Java EE track (the only real limits of course are your own imagination on anything in the Java EE ecosystem):

  • Existing and upcoming Java EE technology JSRs and implementations
  • Cool stuff that extends Java EE in new and interesting ways
  • Case studies using Java EE 5, Java EE 6 or Java EE 7 (including migration from other technologies)
  • Best practices for using Java EE technologies
  • Emerging trends in the ecosystem such as mobile, HTML5, caching, complex event processing, modularity and the like
  • Insightful research, development and analysis work in server-side Java

The Cloud Track vs. The Java EE Track
Note that topics like IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, elasticity, multitenancy, NoSQL, Big Data, DevOps and the like should go on the cloud track instead of the Java EE track. Do make an honest effort in applying your judgement on which track to submit on. Either way, it's not a deal breaker if you don't get it exactly right - we will figure it out for you if all else fails. Similarly, please try not to submit talks that really belong in another track such as tools or dynamic languages to the Java EE track. Believe it or not, the Java EE track is actually far more competitive than many of the other tracks. Similarly, if something clearly belongs in the Java EE track, you'll be doing yourself a disfavor by not submitting to the track as the other track leads won't necessarily move your submission correctly.

The Video to Include With Your Submission
Some people are getting caught by surprise that this year we are requiring a video with the submission, so this may bear some explaining. One of the fundamental purposes of the video is to level the playing field for unkown but great speakers. It allows us to assess your submission a lot better by helping neutralize bias towards people that the reviewers are aware of personally. It need not be anything elaborate at all - just a simple explanation of what you are submitting. For experienced speakers, the video requirement is no big deal at all - just submit the video for any talk you have (or ideally video for the talk you are proposing).

Mark Stephens of IDR Solutions recently put out a great blog entry on the JavaOne submission video requirement. The entry is well worth a look.

Don't Count on an Extension
Fortunately or unfortunately some previous JavaOne CFPs have been extended beyond their initial date. Please do yourself a favor and don't assume this will happen again. You may be winding up denying yourself a shot at submitting your great talk altogether :-).

Finally, here is that all important link to the CFP. Hope to see and accept your great topic soon :-)?

JavaOne CFP is Open - Your Invitation to Submit to the Java EE Track

It's that special time of the year again - the JavaOne 2014 call for papers is now officially open!

JavaOne will be held September 28 - October 2 in San Francisco. You can read about the details and submit here (at the time of writing the site was intermittently available so do be patient or let us know if you have any issues). This year, I have the privilege to lead the Java EE track along with Lance Andersen (Lance also leads the closely related Cloud track). My colleagues Bruno Borges and David Delabassee will also be playing key roles in the Java EE track.

Please do consider this a personal invitation from me to submit your best ideas to one of the most prestigious gatherings of the minds for server-side Java. If you have any questions, never hesitate to get in touch.

Consider the following as inspiration for submissions to the Java EE track (the only real limits of course are your own imagination on anything in the Java EE ecosystem):

  • Existing and upcoming Java EE technology JSRs and implementations
  • Cool stuff that extends Java EE in new and interesting ways
  • Case studies using Java EE 5, Java EE 6 or Java EE 7 (including migration from other technologies)
  • Best practices for using Java EE technologies
  • Emerging trends in the ecosystem such as mobile, HTML5, caching, complex event processing, modularity and the like
  • Insightful research, development and analysis work in server-side Java

Note that topics like IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, elasticity, multitenancy, NoSQL, Big Data, DevOps and the like should go on the cloud track instead of the Java EE track. Do make an honest effort in applying your judgement on which track to submit on. Either way, it's not a deal breaker if you don't get it exactly right - we will figure it out for you if all else fails :-).

The CFP is closed April 15, so please do start thinking about what you want to submit soon. We will be using rolling acceptance, so there is an inherent advantage to submitting early. That being said do take your time - quality always matters!

JSF 2.2 New Features in Context

"If the smaller characters are well-written, the whole world of the film becomes enriched. 
It's not the size of the thing, but the detail." 
(Brendan Gleeson)

A lot of airtime is spent on the APIs that were added to Java EE 7 (e.g. WebSocket) and APIs that went through a major revision (e.g. JMS 2.0 or JAX-RS 2.0). But let's not forget that a lot of others APIs have been revised in Java EE 7 and this sometime implies new features, new capabilities.

In this JavaOne session, Roger Kitain and Edward Burns who are both Specification Leads for JavaServer Faces, explains in details some of the important features that were added to JSF 2.2 (e.g. Faces Flow, HTML5-friendly markup, Resource library contracts). Those new features are explained in detail and demonstrated in the context of a self-contained sample application. Ed and Roger also shows that JSF is still relevant in today's enterprise software stack, they finally compares the benefits of upgrading to JSF 2.2 against opting for a totally new architecture.

GlassFish and Friends Party Photos!

As you may know, the now iconic GlassFish and Friend Party took place 8 PM - 10 PM, Sunday, September 22nd at the much coveted Thirsty Bear on the first day of JavaOne 2013. As with previous years, it was a great success with a full house, old friends, new friendships, good conversations and a good time. The photos below speak for themselves (many thanks to Bruno and Arun for taking them):

Just some of the folks attending included Adam Bien, Alexandra Huff, Alexis MP, Anil Gaur, Arun Gupta, Ben Evans, Blaise Doughan, Bruno Borges, David Delabassee, David Heffelfinger, Doug Clarke, Ed Bratt, Ed Burns, Edgar Martinez, Heather VanCura, Jaromir Hamala, Johan Vos, John Clingan, Kerry Wilson, Kirk Pepperdine, Ludovic Champenois, Makito Hashiyama, Mark Heckler, Martijn Verburg, Melissa Jacobus, Mike Lehmann, Murat Yener, Nigel Deakin, Patrick Curran, Paul Sandoz, Rajiv Mordani, Romain Grecourt and Shaun Smith. Regrettably, I could not be there myself this year. Perhaps next year we will see you at the party?

Stay tuned for the videos/slide decks from the GlassFish stories, roadmap and executive panel from the GlassFish Sunday Community event...

JavaOne 2013 Trip Report

JavaOne 2013 San Francisco was held September 22-26. This was a particularly important year from a Java EE standpoint with the release of EE 7 and GlassFish 4 - the content reflected this fact. JavaOne 2013 can certainly be considered a success by most measures. It's clear the best and the brightest in the Java ecosystem continue to see participating in JavaOne as a badge of honor and a privilege.

Besides booth duty at the GlassFish 4/Java EE 7 kiosk on Monday/Tuesday, I led the GlassFish Community Event on Sunday, had a BOF titled "What’s New with Bean Validation and Expression Language in Java EE 7" on Monday, led the GlassFish BOF on Tuesday and had a technical session titled "Android and iOS Development with Java EE 7" on Thursday. More details on the sessions and JavaOne, including the slide decks and code, posted on my personal blog.

Video Interviews on the GlassFish Community Event

I did a couple of brief video interviews talking about the JavaOne Sunday GlassFish Community Event - the first with celebrated Java advocate Steve Chin and the second with Bob Rhubart of the OTN Architect Community. Feel free to check it out and don't hesitate to sound off if you have further questions I can help answer.

You still have an opportunity to pose questions to the executive panel by sending me a quick email or attending the event first-hand. All of the event details including how to schedule for the session to secure your spot is posted on GlassFish.org.

Come to the event and kick off a great JavaOne by voicing your support for the GlassFish and Java EE communities!
