Java EE 8 - An instant snapshot (21/5)

Hello JUGgers!

Are you ready for the next event? And ready for a great Java & JVM langs conference this summer in Barcelona? We hope so, we are working hard on that! ;-)

Regarding the next event, we would like to invite you to our next talk focused on the status of Java EE 8 by David Delabassee, the next 21th of May at 7pm at FIB

Java EE 7 has been finalised mid 2013 and from J2EE to Java EE 7, much has changed ... but we are not done yet! Through the years, Java EE has always reinventing itself. Java EE 8 will be no exception to this rule! 

In this session, we will look at the current state of Java EE 8. We will review the various new JSRs that will be part of Java EE 8 (e.g. MVC, JSON-B, Security JSR). We will obviously also look how the existing technologies will evolves in Java EE 8 (e.g. Servlet 4 which brings HTTP/2 support, JMS's plan to replace Message Driven Beans, CDI/EJB alignment, JAX-RS 2.1, etc.).

We will finally conclude this discussion by looking at how you can get involved in those works.

David Delabassee is a Software Evangelist working for Oracle; his primary focus is Java on the Server-Side, i.e. Java Enterprise Edition. Prior to OracleDavid spent a decade at Sun Microsystems focusing on Java end-to-end (from the smart card to the high end server), related technologies and developer tools. In his various roles, David has been involved in numerous Java projects since the early days of this technology. 

David lives in Belgium. In his spare time, he enjoys playing video games with his daughter and tinkering with technologies such as Java, Home Automation, Electronics and Pinballs. You can find him on Twitter using @delabassee

That's it, remember to get your place through our MeetUp, thanks again to FibAlumni. We hope to see you all at FIB next thursday 21st at 7pm!
