Based off the popular title 'The Well-Grounded Java Developer', this tutorial covers four major themes (Java 7, Functional programming, polyglot programming and modern concurrency) which we believe that all Well-Grounded Java developers should be aware of, and start practising to stay ahead of the game in 2012 and beyond.

Are you tired of null pointer exceptions, SQL injections, concurrency errors, mistaken equality tests, and other run-time errors? A compile-time tool named the Checker Framework has found hundreds of such errors in Java code. Come learn how you can use the tool to improve your own code. For those who don't use Java, we will explain the concept of pluggable type-checking that underlies the tool.

The Disruptor is an open source concurrency framework developed by LMAX, a London financial exchange. While it’s fashionable to use languages to hide away multithreading, the Disruptor does the opposite - enables developers to parallelize their architecture easily. In this session, Trisha Gee will show how to use the Disruptor, proving that concurrent programming doesn't have to be complicated.

Jython is arguably the best Python implementation to target concurrent
code. Jython has no GIL, it leverages the Java platform to provide
robust support for concurrency in its runtime, and it enables access
to a set of high-level abstractions from Java. This talk will walk
through a series of motivating examples that emphasize Java integration.
