Vasilis Souvatzis's Java EE 7 Thesis Using GlassFish

Guest Author

Hoping all of our readers happiness, health and wealth in this first post of the year! It's an awesome stroke of good luck to be able to start the year off by sharing a pretty cool Java EE 7/GlassFish 4.1 adoption/learning story. Vasilis Souvatzis, a computer science student at the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki (ATEITHE) in Greece, decided to do his thesis project on Java EE 7. He basically taught himself Java EE 7, Java SE 8, GlassFish, NetBeans and PrimeFaces with little more than what is freely available online. He is now proudly a fan of the technology stack, particularly Java EE 7.

The end result of his project is a pretty sophisticated, non-trivial working code base simulating a web-based tutorial (there aren't too many students that I know of that has those bragging rights :-)). He actually made the project available on GitHub for all to see. He demos the project in the video below he took the time to create:

The GitHub project has instructions on how to setup and explore the project yourself. He would also welcome any contributions if you are so inclined. Enjoy and don't forget to spread the word on Vasilis's hard work useful to the Java EE community if you think it is cool!

    I'm also writing similar thesis project, using same technologies/tools, by the time learning jee7 :)

    Vasilis: how long took you writing this app?
