Java EE Game Changers

A session at Devoxx UK 2015

Friday 19th June, 2015

10:00am to 10:50am (GMT)

From J2EE to Java EE, much has changed. The addition of annotations to the Java language to eliminate complex deployment descriptors, testability through embeddable plain Java SE containers, shrinking the platform to half its size via the Java EE Web Profile, creation of CDI, and focus on a single strong component model. Java EE is always reinventing itself. Part greatest hits, glimpse into the future, and call to action, this presentation covers select must-know changes the Java EE platform has taken from the J2EE days to Java EE 7, with a strong focus on possible futures for Java EE 8. Topics include embeddable containers, CDI/EJB alignment, JCP openness, further reinvention of JMS and MDBs, widespread use of stereotypes ,and redefining Java EE security.
