JavaOne 2011 Technical Keynote - Java EE 7 (Video, Podcast)

While all the JavaOne 2011 keynotes are available from the OTN Media Network, if you're interested in the Java EE portion of the technical keynote you can now get straight to it on the GlassFish YouTube Channel or on the GlassFish Podcast.


The audio/podcast version is Episode #77 and is only 15 minutes as the demo portion was edited out (not ideal in audio-only format). If you want to get to the demo details, consider the video or the detailed instructions to run it yourself. There is a dedicated page on the elasticity part of the demo.

Remember you can track the progress of the Java EE 7 Expert Group as well as the work going on in the GlassFish 4.0 builds (we're now down to build 5 now)..

Type-Safe Criteria and MetaData API in JPA 2.0 - Expert Group Delivers Proposed Final Draft


One more JavaEE 6 specification in Proposed Final Draft: Linda has announced the availability of JPA 2.0 PFD. This draft includes a number of significant changes, including the replacement of an earlier version of criteria API with a typesafe API, support for validation, and a metamodel API.

As pointed by Linda, the changes to the criteria API and the new metamodel API came through a proposal from Gavin to the EG; a great example of how the EG can pool the expertise from experts in the Java community, regardless of their company affiliation.

Download the PFD spec from the JSR 317 site and give feedback to the EG on this one... and the others that will follow as JavaOne is playing its usual role of forcing function.
