Productive Java EE 6 - Rethinking Best Practices, Planned For San Jose, Takes Place in Krakow (JDD) ...and Netbeans Days, or Poland the "Java Land"?

I was asked several times for sessions about Java EE 6, EJB 3 in English. I planned a talk at the JAX in U.S. this week, but it was moved to next year because of strategic reasons (I assume to directly compete with Java ONE :-)). However I will give similar talk several thousands miles away - at the JDD in Krakow (Poland) in English. It seems like it will be an interesting conference, Ted Neward and Neil Ford will come as well. Even more interesting, it is nearly the same flight duration between Munich and Krakau, as between Munich and Hamburg - so looking forward to it.

I gave similar talk (it took over 2 hours) at the JUG in HH - with over 160 attendees. So EJB 3 / Java EE 6 seems to really take off.

Funny enough, I was asked to participate at Netbeans World Tour in Poland  (in October). So something seems to going on in Poland (Javaland):-). I will attend at both events (saturday, Posen and sunday, Danzig). I plan to hack the whole session live with Netbeans 6.1, 6.5, developer snapshot, Glassfish v2 and v3 prelude a whole Java EE 5/6 (RestFul services, SOAP, EJB 3.1, JSF, Servlets, Filters, JMS, JPA I will only skip JCA :-) ) application interactively. With many hacks, patterns and probably errors :-).


Hi Adam,

Excellent. I'll be there too as a speaker about OSGi and Spring-DM (JDD 2008 in Krakow) and NetBeans 6.5 New and Noteworthy (NetBeans Day 2008 in Gdansk), so looking forward to meeting you in person. I couldn't think of a better year finish than this.

Good to hear, that You will be in Poznań, but...
we have had a good laugh today at office ;-)
I'm trying to be not offensive, but when You write post in English, try to write own names in English (like Cracow), or, when it is not possible, in Polish.
German names (like Posen or Danzig) are not recognizable world-wide, and are not proper in my opinion ;-)

Oh, and this is interesting:
Why Cracow (not Krakau) ? :-P

Posen and Danzig - these are the names, from my flight reservation - so they have to be recognized somehow. I'm not sure where I catched Cracow (probably I misspelled it completely) - it might be entirely wrong. In general I would write München instead of Munich as well.

Can we discuss this topic in Posen / Poznan, Gdansk / Danzig or Krakow / Krakau? :-)

I will correct Cracow into Krakow.

I even noticed, that my keyboard doesn't have polish characters. So it will be hard to write them properly in polish :-).

Hi Adam
Topic list looks very interesting and seems to be really mind-opening. Unfortunatelly I wasn't able to hear Your talk in Krakow.

Are there any stuff about for example:
dead DAOs, anemic JPA-entities, layering as antipattern, Services/Objects?
I mean Your posts, articels...?
