OTN just published part 1 of a series by Adam Bien on “The Enterprise Side of JavaFX”.
In this article, learn how to use LightView to convert REST services into a bindable set of properties, using JavaFX, Glassfish, LightFish, and Maven. Sample code included.
Part 2 will discuss the integration of a JavaServer Faces 2 UI with WebView.
If you haven’t had a look at The Java Spotlight Podcast lately, I recommend you check out some of the recent episodes.
We’ve been busy covering a broad spectrum of topics, from the Java 7 Launch, Glassfish 3.1, JVM Performance and Quality, Java Mobile Platform development, all the way to bringing Java to Nintento DS with phoneME:
- Episode 38: Adam Messinger, Vice President of Development Fusion Middleware at Oracle, on the JDK 7 release and more
- Episode 37: Michelle Kovak, Java Brand Manager, on the Java 7 Launch
- Episode 36: Anil Gaur, Vice President of Java Platform Enterprise Edition, on Glassfish 3.1
- Episode 35: Vladimir Ivanov, Ivan Krylov, Sergey Kuksenko on JDK 7 VM performance and quality
- Episode 34: Chuk Munn Lee on using phoneME on Ninendo DS
- Episode 33: Sreekumar Pillai, CTO of Experion, on Java Mobile Platform development
Don’t forget that each episode also comes with a written transcript as well as show notes with a host of URLs, pointing to more details, events, and other information.
Join us next Tuesday (May 24) for a day of Java at the Hilton Athenee in Bucharest, Romania.
Sessions will cover the Java platform, mobile Java development, embedded Java, Java EE and Glassfish, as well as JavaFX. See the the main event page for the agenda and registration information.
As with other OTN events, attendance is FREE, but you need to register.
Hope to see you there!
Join us this Thursday (April 14) for a full day of Java sessions at the Sheraton Istanbul Maslak hotel. Sessions will cover the Java platform, mobile Java development, embedded Java, Java EE and Glassfish, as well as JavaFX. See the full agenda here.
As with other OTN events, registration is FREE, but you need to register. See the event page for more information. Hope to see you there!
PS: Be sure to check the OTN Event Page regularly for interesting events coming to your area. Here is a current list of all Java events (to see them, select the “Java” filter under the Middleware tab).
Check out this interview with Steve Harris, Oracle’s Senior VP of Application Server Development, on Java in general and it’s role at Oracle, adapting to change, the JCP, Java ME and Java ME.next, Java EE 6, Glassfish, and cloud computing.
Nothing here should be shockingly new – it has been broadcast before in a number of ways, but the interview is a compact summary of Oracle’s current vision for Java.
Just a quick note: If you haven’t seen it before, Glassfish has a YouTube channel with lots of excellent content, such as “What’s New In Glassfish 3.1”, a 55 minute launch webinar with the engineering team, as well as six accompanying clipped out stand-alone demo segments:
- Feature Overview – Nazrul Islam
- Microkernel Enhancements – Jerome Dochez
- HA, Load Balancing – Mahesh Kannan
- Developer Tools – Ludo Champenois
- Server Control and Value Add Features – Chris Kasso
- Clustering Architecture – Tom Mueller
Some quick news, blogging live from embeddedworld2011:
- Glassfish 3.1 was released yesterday, bringing to the table a host of new features and improvements, including clustering. All the news, blogs, and screen casts over at The Aquarium.
- The Sun SPOT hardware development kit has been rev’d to version 8 and is shipping now through the Oracle store. See sunspotworld.com for details.
- The Java Spotlight Podcast is humming along. Check out episodes 16 (Richard Bair on JavaFX 2.0), 17 (ND Satcom and NetBeans RCP), and 18 (Mattias Karlsson and the jfokus conference).
The TechCast “Java and Oracle, One Year Later” is now available in the OTN archives. Ajay Patel, VP Product Development, talks about a wide range of topics, changes, and plans since the Sun acquisition happened a year ago.
Some key quotes (partially paraphrased):
- “One key thing we have learned … Java is not just a platform, it is also an ecosystem, and you can’t have an ecosystem without a community.”
- “The objectives, strategically [for Java at Oracle] have been pretty clear: How do we drive adoption, how do we build a larger, stronger developer community, how do we really make the platform much more competitive.”
- “It’s about transparency, involvement. IBM, RedHat, Apple have all agreed to working with us to make OpenJDK the best platform for open source development … it is a sign that the community has been waiting to move the Java platform forward.”
- “It’s not just about Oracle anymore, it’s about Java, the technology, the community, the developer base, and how we work with them to move the innovation forward.”
- “Java is strategic to Oracle, and the community is strategic for Java to be successful … it is critical to our business.”
- On JavaFX 2.0: “… is coming to beta soon, with a release planned in second half [of 2011] … will give you a new, high-performance graphics engine, the new API for JavaFX … you will see a very strong, relevant platform for levering rich media platforms.”
- On the JDK and SE: “… aggressively moving forward, JDK 7 is now code complete … looking good for getting JDK 7 out by summer as we promised. Started work on JDK 8, Jigsaw and Lambda are moving along nicely, on track for JDK 8 release next year … good progress.”
- On Java EE and Glassfish: “… Very excited to have Glassfish 3.1 released, with clustering and management capabilities … working with the JCP to shortly submit a number of JSRs for Java EE 7 … You’ll see Java EE 7 becoming the platform for cloud-based development.”
- “You will see Oracle continue to step up to this role of Java steward, making sure that the language, the technology, the platform … is competitive, relevant, and widely adopted.”
Highly recommended viewing.
After a bit of a hiatus from the 92 episodes of the Java Mobility Podcast, Roger Brinkley and I are back at it again! And as part of the broader Java Evangelism team at Oracle we’re upleveling the scope of the podcast to encompass the whole breath of Java, including Java EE, SE, ME, JavaFX, and more.
We’re keeping the popular format of the show – news, a feature segment or interview, and “What’s Cool” but we’re increasing the depth of the news section by adding a revolving cast of Java All-Stars – folks from the evangelist team and others at Oracle who specialize on specific technology areas and can add their unique knowledge and insight.
The first 2 episodes are already live:
An Interview with Mark Reinhold, Chief Java Architect, Java Platform Group on the future of Java SE.
An Interview with Steve Harris, Senior VP of Application Server Development on the Java Enterprise Edition, Glassfish, and integrating Sun into Oracle.
Joining us every week is a changing panel of Java All Stars such as Dalibor Topic (Java free and open source software ambassador), Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine (Java EE Evangelist), and others.
I hope you like the new show. And we have a great line-up of topics and interviews in the pipeline for the next couple of shows already … So, stay tuned!
