Yes, you guessed it,... we have planned our next event this month! This time will be next Thursday 15th at 7pm centered on JBoss Forge by Ivan St. Ivanov! And yes, this time you can attend where you prefer, because it will be streamed online via our Youtube channel!
Java EE has long been accused for being very hard to quickly develop web applications and most of the accusations come from the old J2EE days. It was the times when you had to create heavy deployment descriptors even for the simplest app. So every vendor provided plethora of deployment and development tools. With Java EE 5 and 6 the things got simplified a lot with the removal of accompanying descriptor XMLs and imposing the convention over configuration development model. But still there are some things that make developer's life hard: finding the right dependencies, setting up ORM layer, writing all the plumbing CRUD code, etc.
In this session we'll introduce JBoss Forge - a tool that further simplifies developer experience. Even though it's not bound to Java EE, we'll show how you can easily wire JPA, bean validation, JAX-RS, EJB. Another cool feature of the tool is its IDE agnostics: all its features can be used transparently from Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA and (coming soon) from NetBeans, as well as from the command line. Come and see how Java [EE] can feel like all the *rails frameworks that are threatening to kill it!
