For the Java EE track at JavaOne 2015 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 Kito Mann. Kito is a long time JSF advocate, popular author, speaker, consultant and very prolific contributor to the JCP. Just as previous years, Kito has one of the highest number of sessions from a single speaker on the Java EE track. He spoke to us about his accepted session at JavaOne 2015 (click here if you can't see the embedded video).
The following are the sessions we talked about:
- Advanced PrimeFaces: This informal after-hours BoF is a deep dive into the popular PrimeFaces library. If you are using PrimeFaces this is a great session to really understand how PrimeFaces works.
- Tuning JavaServer Faces: In this extended tutorial style session Kito offers his deep insight to effectively tuning JSF applications in the real world. I would say this is a must attend for any JSF user.
- Building Professional JavaServer Faces UI Components: As Kito explains building reusable components is a key value proposition for JSF. In this informal after-hours BoF Kito will cover best practices for effectively building JSF components for real world applications.
- Modern Web Apps with HTML5 Web Components, Polymer, and Java EE MVC 1.0: This is a very advanced technical session covering a number of very forward-looking topics. HTML5 web components are a key emerging standard for building JSF style components in vanilla HTML. Polymer is an important open source library for HTML 5 web components. In this session Kito shows how Polymer/web components can be used effectively with the upcoming MVC 1.0 standard slated for Java EE 8.
The following sessions are pretty closely related to what Kito is presenting at JavaOne this year:
- Introduction to MVC 1.0: This talk is about the new action-oriented web framework being standardized as part of Java EE 8. Besides this technical session there is also a BoF scheduled for MVC 1.0.
- JSF 2.3: Continued Return on Investment with Incremental Innovation: This is an informal after-hours BoF session by specification lead Ed Burns on the incremental work being done as part of JSF 2.3.
Besides these 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. If you are coming, do make sure to book your sessions via schedule builder before they fill up.
