JavaOne 2012 Videos Now on YouTube

Many folks have consistently said that viewing JavaOne videos on the Content Management Tool used by Oracle is not ideal. You will be happy to know that the JavaOne San Francisco 2012 videos are now on YouTube via the Oracle Learning Portal (OLP). The videos are 100% free for anyone to view.

Besides the OLP Landing Page on YouTube, the videos are organized by the JavaOne 2012 Technical Tracks on the following links:

It's really an invaluable set of materials from some of the greatest thought leaders in the Java world. Enjoy!

If you haven't already seen it, there is now an official Java channel on YouTube with some 30+ videos ranging from JavaOne 2011 Keynote Highlights to showfloor interviews as well as the The "Java Life" Rap Music Video and this recent promo animation.


Make sure you comment about what you'd like to see posted there and remember there is also the GlassFish Videos channel which is now more than 100 videos strong, a good number of which are screencast and demos.

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)..

OSCON Java videos on YouTube

OSCON Java (a new track this year) is going on right now in Portland, OR with a bunch of keynotes already posted on YouTube.

These are short 10 to 20-minute presentations. The Twitter Java case-study is probably the most popular one so far (although YouTube seems to have some issues counting views) but you should probably spend time watching Steve Harris' "Open Source, Java, and Oracle -- Cracking the Code" to find out all about the POSTL (Perceived Open Source Threat Level).


Other interesting videos include Joe Darcy's very fine "JDK 7 in a Nutshell" (possibly the best presentation title at an O'Reilly conference) or Josh Bloch's "Java: The Good, Bad, and Ugly Parts". I have to say that I started watching one and ended up watching almost all of them.

GlassFishVideos Adoption Growth

I like graphs, as you know... so I thought I'd share 3 with you about GlassFishVideos, our official GlassFish YouTube channel.

The first chart shows daily views ('uploads') since inception in late July.

As you can see, the general trend is quite positive, with spikes as interesting content is uploaded. Total accumulated views is 57,162. We currently have >50 videos, while subscriptions are healthy at 281, with only 2 folks that have unsubscribed. Most of the viewers are from embedded videos (in blogs), but this is growing less over time.

The second chart shows the relative geographic distribution of the audience.

The data is relative to the other YouTube views; so, for example, the US, India and Germany all show 0.1, which is pretty good. Next in sequence are the UK, Switzerland, Brazil, Russia, Canada, Poland and France. Very nice to see the BRI(C) countries - minus China.

The third chart shows views for RedHatVideos (top) and GlassFishVideos (bottom).  Goals help focus actions, so my target has been to overpass RedHatVideos. Still some to go, but the gap is closing... :-)

Go Fish!

New GlassFish Videos (@YouTube) and Audio (@GlassFishPodcast)

We have new Videos and Audio Recordings.

New Videos

Arun has uploaded several new videos to GlassFishVideos, our official channel at YouTube:

• Two short interviews as part of a JavaOne Playlist: RedFX: JavaFX Widget Library for GlassFish, with Johan Voss and GlassFish scales and configures very quickly for Micello - the "indoor Google Maps" company with Prakahs Narayan.  Also check out Arun's companion blogs (RedFX, Micello).

• A 6-parter playlist based on the OSGi HoL from JavaOne.  See the blog for details and play the playlist.

GlassFishVideos has been growing very nicely.  We launched on July 20th and it already has 39 videos, with over 20K upload views, almost 7.5K channel views, and 227 subscribers.  We are just getting started and, given the abundance of mobile devices that are good YouTube clients, I think the channel will be very successful.

New Podcasts

At the same time, Alexis has uploaded two podcasts to the GlassFish Podcast.

Episode #67 is an interview with Masoud Kalali recorded at JavaZone in Oslo; Episode #68 features Adam Bien and was recorded at JavaOne.

GlassFish Podcasts now has 68 episodes, download them directly from the website, via the feeds or via the iTunes store and you will be able to use them in your next traffic jam... or on the Tube.

All GlassFish 3.1 Screencasts

Our Official Channel at YouTube is GlassFishVideos.  It's still very new - we started it just a bit over a month ago - but it already has over 4,580 channel views.  Not at the level of the Lady Java videos ([1], [2], [3]), but it is a good beginning.

GlassFish 3 and Eclipse - OEPE, Screencasts

Although GlassFish has excellent adoption in the NetBeans community we can do better with the Eclipse folks, and that was the goal for the GlassFish Tools Bundle for Eclipse from Ludo et al. (Download, Docs, notes).

In the last months we have fine-tuned the story because Oracle also had the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and we are combining the two. So, happy to report that the latest OEPE ( is now available supporting Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) and GlassFish 2.x and 3.x - see  download page or Eclipse Marketplace.

More details at the Developer Tools Blog, with posts by Duncan and Pieter, and from Greg Stachnick's blog. To coincide with this, Arun has created a screencast series on this topic - see his blog, or navigate directly to the PlayList at the new Official GlassFishVideos @ YouTube.

Introducing GlassFishVideos - GlassFish at YouTube

We now have an official YouTube channel for videos related to GlassFish: GlassFishVideos. The channel already has 15 screencasts from Alexis, including the new one on the Hudson Provisioning Plugin, and over the next few weeks we are going to complete updating videos from Arun, myself and other sources.

We don't yet have a process to determine what content goes there but, as always, we welcome your suggestions.

GlassFish (YouTube) Channel


Due to popular demand, the GlassFish Channel is now live!

Since both glassfish and theaquarium users were already registered by someone in Australia (same person not posting anything...?) we're going with As of today, you'll find 16 screencasts, most of which focus on version 3.0. This includes the six short introductory demos from the launch of GlassFish v3 in December 2009 linked off of the getting started page, but you'll also find the recent Milestone 1 screencasts and more...

The way this works is as follows: the GlassFish channel is set up to present a default playlist which aggregates a number of GlassFish-related screencasts. If you have a video on YouTube and would like to be listed on the GlassFish Channel, simply send a request to

Added The old name (javascreencasts) was very generic; we created a new channel and moved the content there. The new channel is GlassFishVideos.
