This is a little late, but anyway…
I don’t have many pictures because I’m very smart and let my mobile’s battery run out… but let’s go through a few of the ones I got and talk about the contents of this event.
The event was split in a few individual topics, among them: JSF 2.0, JAX-RS, EJB 3.1 and JPA 2.0. Each one had different presenters, all of them great speakers! =)
JSF 2.0 was presented by Yara Senger and Alberto “Spock” Lemos. They mentioned some changes that are coming to JSF, and used a small demo application, SCRUM Toys, to explain how they got involved into actually using the new features.
Melissa Vilela spoke about the new features coming in JPA 2.0. There are a lot of nice things. Among them, the new Criteria API is not. To be brutally honest, that thing is ridiculously complex. It is clearly lacking some usage of the KISS principle.
Then there was a presentation about REST, more specifically JAX-RS. (no pictures, sorry). Nothing really new here, just the fact that the API, which was already done and available, is going to be part of JAVAEE 6.
The last topic was EJB 3.1. Like with EJB 3.0, things are moving towards a simpler development model, and this is what was presented. Nice, simplifications to EJBs are always welcome! =)
After that, Pizza! uhu! My only complain this time is that the technical sessions took longer than usual, and I was really hungry in the end! But it was well worth the time =)
