After almost a year of silence, Oracle presented a preliminary proposed road map for Java EE. It is an aggressive one and will require dedicated hard work in the Expert Groups to make it happen.
There are some interesting new JSRs coming up regarding configuration and health check in addition to the changes going to happen in the existing ones. Worth noting is also that MVC 1.0 is left out entirely from this proposal.
On the other hand, also note that it is still just a preliminary proposal, and that we as a Community are invited to give our input through a new Java EE Community Survey.
Make sure to show your support by participating in this survey!
Five days packed with technical sessions, discussions, community building…It is such a blast!
I have heard more than once that this conference is more about the people than the technology. And I totally agree with that.
Since I am pretty heavy involved in the Java Community Process (JCP), many of my activities this year (as last year) was connected to this. I was interviewed on NightHacking about the JCP in general as well as the JSRs I am on the expert group of (368, 371 and 375). I also managed to get in a word or two about Snoop with input from Arun Gupta.
In addition to my planned sessions, CON1615: Meet Snoop – a Discovery Service for Java EE and BOF3666: How would you like to improve the Java EE Security API, I was also on stage at the CON4176: Introduction to MVC 1.0 (JSR 371).
Thursday morning we had a very productive Face-to-Face meeting in the JMS 2.1 Expert Group (JSR 368). The minutes from this meeting can be found here.
Last, but not least, thanks to Tomitribe for gathering together the #usualsuspects and making sure everyone is having a good time.
JavaOne in San Francisco is less than a month away. If you have not registered yet, do so now!
So far so good! Then you will need to add sessions you want to attend to to your personal schedule. Make sure you don’t wait until the last moment. The most popular sessions tend to fill up pretty fast.
My presentation Meet Snoop – a Discovery Service for Java EE may be can be found in the Schedule Builder by searching for CON1615. Add it to your schedule so that you are sure to get a seat. It may fill up…
I know it is a bit early to sum up the year in November, but since I have not planned any more conference talks this year I think I will do it anyway. As the picture shows I have been pretty active this year.
I have been presenting at conferences in Norway (Software 2014), Sweden (Javaforum, Øredev), Germany (Javaland), Poland (JDD), Ukraine (JEEConf, JavaDayKiev) and Morocco (JMaghreb). In addition to my speaker appearances, I was also able to attend JavaOne in San Francisco where I got to meet a lot of people in the JCP and ended up being selected to the Expert Group for JSR 371 – MVC 1.0.
I hope to continue speaking at a lot of conferences next year as well. Talks have already been accepted by jDays and Javaland, so it looks promising.
I am sitting at a Starbuck’s with a dark roast in my hand looking over some photos from Yesterday’s stroll in San Francisco. Some of them are pretty cool, so I’ll share them here…
What do you do with your boat after having won America’s Cup? Well, if your name is Larry you will probably use it as roof over a street you have closed for a week while hosting a party for 50-60.000 of your closest friends…
Earlier this week, my talk on Spring 4, Java EE 7 or Both was accepted and added to the program for JEEConf. Even with the current situation in Ukraine, I am looking very much forward to going there. We should never let politics interfere with our knowledge sharing and community activities. See you there!
