Oracle University Presents The Java EE 6 Roadshow!
"Java EE 6 & GlassFish v3: Paving the Path for Future"
Led By Arun Gupta, GlassFish Evangelist & Java EE Team Member

Please join us for this free Oracle University workshop, seating is limited so RSVP today! Come learn about Java EE 6, network with your peers, meet the experts, and have some pizza on us.

The release of the new Java EE 6 Platform in December 2009 has further enhanced the language.

» A more flexible technology stack – Java EE 6 introduces the concept of profiles – (i.e., the new Web Profile, a subset of the platform designed for Web application development) – to make the platform easier to develop enterprise and web applications.
» Enhanced extensibility – Java EE 6 makes more use of extensibility points and service provider interfaces as well as Web-tier features to make the platform highly extensible.
» Ease of development – more use of annotations, POJO model, streamlined EJBs, pruning of the extensive APIs, and simplified packaging capabilities (EJBs can now be packaged directly in WAR files instead of creating separate JAR files).

Enhanced APIs:
» EJB 3.1, Servlets 3.0 & JSF 2.0
» Java API for RESTful Web Services (JAX-RS)
» Java Persistence API (JPA 2.0)

What: Java EE 6 & GlassFish v3: Paving the Path for Future
Abstract: The Java EE 6 platform is an extreme makeover from the previous versions. It is developed as JSR 316 under the Java Community Process.

The Java EE 6 platform adds more power to the platform and yet make it more flexible so that it can be adopted to different flavors of an application. It breaks the "one size fits all" approach with Profiles and improves on the Java EE 5 developer productivity features. It enables extensibility by embracing open source libraries and frameworks such that they are treated as first class citizens of the platform.

Several new specifications such as Java Server Faces 2.0, Servlet 3.0, Java Persistence API 2.0, and Context and Dependency Injection 1.0 are included in the platform. All these specifications are implemented in GlassFish v3 that provides a light-weight, modular, and extensible platform for your Web applications.

This session provides an overview of Java EE 6 and its Reference Implementation - GlassFish v3. Using multiple simple-to-understand samples it explains the value proposition provided by Java EE 6.
