This week a give a workshop with the title: "(Ultra) Lightweight Java EE - the killer platform for efficient development" in Munich. The funny story about it: the location is the German Museum :-). Probably I should think about that :-). Groovy and even C# workshops are hold here as well - so there is still some hope.
Fortunately the group is small (no surprise - just after w-jax conference, in Munich as well) so we have enough time to cover all (even project specific) questions. We are using Netbeans 6.5 RC2 and Glassfish v2 / v3 for the samples (I offered Ganymede on the CD as well but no-one installed it :-)) - and we were able to develop some examples with EJB 3 / JPA, interceptors already.
