News: JavaOne: The best sessions to Bien

  1. JavaOne: The best sessions to Bien (10 messages)

    If you’ve never attended JavaOne, an important piece of advice that you better take heed of is to use OracleWorld’s online Schedule Builder and register yourself for the various sessions you’re interested in attending. 

    It’s not just about being organized and attacking JavaOne with a plan. The schedule builder not only organizes your day, but when you add yourself to a particular session, you’re actually reserving yourself a seat in that room. Many conferences aren’t quite so rigid with regards to seating and rollcall, but the sheer size and number of people attending JavaOne and OracleWorld makes it a necessity. If you don’t schedule yourself in, you’ll find yourself blocked out of many of the sessions you were most interested in attending. And here's some bad news for those procrastinators out there: certain sessions are already listing themselves as being over capacity. 

    JavaOne Sessions: How to choose

    Of course, once you start looking at that overwhelming schedule, figuring out which sessions you actually want to attend can be quite the challenge. A suggested approach is to go through the speaker list and sort the results based on the company first, and the speaker name second. That way, you’ll quickly be able to narrow down the sessions to the companies whose products you’ll likely find interesting, and from there, you can pick out the names with which you’re familiar. So, a JBoss fan would quickly find a few sessions being presented by the ever popular Emmanuel Bernard, or a fan of Tasktop would find a few interesting sessions in which their CEO Mik Kersten is presenting.

    There’s all sorts of gold being presented at JavaOne this year, but here are the names of a couple of speakers that never fail to deliver. Add them to your schedule if there's still availability in any of their sessions:

     

    Adam Bien

    Adam Bien made a huge splash at TheServerSide Java Symposium this year, not only by presenting great content, but by delivering it with flair and enthusiasm.  He’s practically running the show at JavaOne this year, taking part in the following four sessions:

    • 21622 - Rethinking Best Practices with Java EE 6
    • 21641 - Java EE 6: The Cool Parts
    • 23423 - The Road to Java EE 7: Is It All About the Cloud?
    • 29621 - Part 1: GlassFish Community—The Foundation for Opportunity

    By the way, TSS is asking the people who attend his Java EE 6 best practices session to harass him endlessly about his reckless advice to abandon the beloved DAO pattern.

     

    Reza Rahman

    The author of EJB 3 in Action, Reza not only develops applications, but he also develops application servers, doing some of the heavy lifting on Resin’s Java EE 6 Web Profile implementation. So, he knows the intricacies of the application server better than anyone else presenting at JavaOne. Plus, he’s got a great presence and is an incredibly proficient speaker, so attending any of his sessions is always a pleasure.

    If you’re interested in hearing Reza speak, you can choose from any of the following sessions:

    • 19941 - CDI Today and Tomorrow
    • 20181 - Patterns and Best Practices for CDI
    • 23423 - The Road to Java EE 7: Is It All About the Cloud?
    • 23647 - JCP and the Developer Community
    • 24580 - JSR 343: What's Coming in Java Message Service 2.0

     

    Martijn Verburg

    The third speaker you might want to think about adding to your schedule is Martijn Verburg. Again, Martijn made a big splash at TheServerSide Java Symposium with his “Diabolical Developer” presentation in the main hall. He’s also been very active promoting the Java 7 release. This is your opportunity to hear Martijn speak about the future of Java before any PR people or handlers start working him over.

    • 23641 - Meet the Executive Committee Candidates
    • 23645 - Lightning Talks: JSRs in Progress
    • 23647 - JCP and the Developer Community
    • 25303 - The Diabolical Developer (Redux)
    • 30440 - Java User Groups and the JCP

     

    But regardless of which sessions you attend, just make sure you’ve used JavaOne’s online scheduler and guaranteed yourself a seat. If you don’t, you just might find yourself on the outside of the auditorium door listening in.

  2. My sessions[ Go to top ]

    Cameron, many thanks for the very kind words - I'll try my best to live up to them :-).

    For anyone interested, here is my full schedule:

    * Monday 11:00 AM -12:00 PM, JCP and the Developer Community (Panel)
    * Monday 9:00 PM-9:45 PM, Meet the Experts: EJB 3.2 Expert Group (BOF)
    * Tuesday 4:30 PM-5:15 PM, JSR 343: What's Coming in Java Message Service 2.0 (BOF)
    * Wednesday 11:30 AM-12:30 PM, The Road to Java EE 7: Is It All About the Cloud? (Panel)
    * Wednesday 3:00 PM-4:00 PM, Patterns and Best Practices for CDI (Technical Session)
    * Thursday 12:30 PM-1:30 PM, CDI Today and Tomorrow (Panel)
    * Thursday 3:30 PM-4:30 PM, Java EE and Spring/MVC Shoot-out (Technical Session)

    Besides the sessions Cameron listed above I'll be attending the EJB 3.2 BOF lead by Marina Vatkina of Oracle and I joined Rohit Kelapure of IBM for his Java EE/Spring presentation somewhat at the last minute.

    At any rate, do feel free to catch me at JavaOne even if you don't attend the sessions. It's a small venue for JavaOne compared to previous years (sadly) so it should not be too hard to track me down. I'll try to be around at the Resin/Caucho booth as much as I can. Alternatively, feel free to drop me an email at reza_rahman at lycos dot com any time.

    Your schedule looks pretty busy.

  4. "...his reckless advice to abandon the beloved DAO pattern"

     

    My sarcasm detector went off.

    Reza gives a good example of why the DAO is useless in the EA version of EJB 3 in Action.  He includes a DAO that does nothing but forwards to EntityManager.

  5. Reza shows why the DAO is a bad idea[ Go to top ]

    The EJB 3 in Action code is meant to be instructional as well as try to help establish good practices. The use of DAOs in the deliberately simplistic EJB 3 in Action code is arguably overkill, but DAOs (or repositories) are a valuable pattern for most real world enterprise projects. Eric Evans in his DDD book does an excellent job of outlining the value of layered architectures.

    I have a lot of respect for Adam, but do have do disagree with him in this particular case.

  6. JavaOne: The best sessions to Bien[ Go to top ]

    It'll be great if there'll be videos of all the sessions online for people who don't have a chance to be there.

  7. Keynotes will be streamed[ Go to top ]

    Keynotes at least will be streamed/recorded - see the Javaone website for details.
