My JavaOne 2012 and Community Day Activities (=Java Vacations)
I'm really looking forward to my upcoming vacations:
- NetBeans Community Day
Date: Sunday, September 30I would like to demo, what I'm usually not presenting: NetBeans Java EE wizards, helpers and magic (10:30am-11:15am). In all remaining JavaOne sessions, I will still use NetBeans, but without theses helpers. It would be an unfair competition :-)
Location: Moscone West, Level 2
Time: 9am - 3pm
GlassFish Community Event at JavaOne 2012
Sunday, September 30, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM (PDT)
I would shortly explain during: "12:15 - 01:00: Customer Testimonials" why I use and like GlassFish.
Full-featured Java EE applications can be built with just a minimal amount of code. A create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) application with a RESTful interface can be implemented in just a few minutes. Hence, because an hour is far too long to build a Java EE CRUD application, this session covers as many Java EE features as possible, using a minimal set of business logic: a classic case of overengineering. In the session, the presenter interactively codes Java EE functionality such as plug-ins, lazy injection, configuration, real-time push, a RESTful interface, asynchronous processing, batch jobs, and periodic timers.
A pragmatic combination of Java EE 6/7 APIs makes the platform extremely productive. With Java EE 6/7, most of the J2EE patterns become obsolete. Even the popular Gang of Four (GOF) patterns are part of the platform and can be “activated” with a single annotation. This tutorial focuses on the lean Java EE 6 way of software development—99 percent business logic and 1 percent infrastructure—and covers the full lifecycle from inception to DevOps. The tutorial involves replacing existing best practices and introduces pragmatic approaches interactively and with executable code.
Most JavaFX 2 samples look and feel great, but they are often developed within a single class, in a completely unrealistic way. This session discusses how to implement real-world JavaFX applications with back-end access, unit and integration tests, Maven builds, and data binding. It also demonstrates the separation of concerns with the model-view-presenter pattern, with real-world code. This is probably the only JavaFX 2 session without special effects, animations, and custom components.
In the context of Java EE 6, unit tests are nice but worthless. Unit and integration tests execute chunks of the business logic in a single thread. Back-end resources and shared states are simulated with mocks. After the initial deployment, your application will never be executed again in a single thread. Strangely enough, most applications aren’t load-tested until shortly before the deadline and are put into production regardless of the results. This session shows how to continuously stress-test your Java EE applications with open source tools and lots of fun!
And a few weeks after: see you at Java EE Workhops at MUC Airport (October 22nd-24th)!
