Java EE 6 = Less Code + More Power
by
Arun Gupta

This month's meeting is graciously supported by Oracle.

Abstract

The Java EE 6 platform allows you to write enterprise Java applications using much lesser code from its earlier versions. It breaks the ?one size fits all? approach with Profiles and improves on the Java EE 5 developer productivity features. Several specifications like CDI, JSF 2, JAX-RS, JPA 2, and Servlets 3 make the platform more powerful. It also enables extensibility by embracing open source libraries and frameworks such that they are treated as first class citizens of the platform. NetBeans, Eclipse, and IntelliJ provide extensive tooling for Java EE 6. This session explain the Java EE 6 key concepts and specifications and use several live coding sessions. A brief overview of the upcoming Java EE 7 will be given as well.
