Real-World Java Seminar in New York August 13

Multi-Track One-Day Event Addresses Technical and Business Issues

The single-day, multi-track Real-World Java Seminar will be held at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York on August 13. Produced by SYS-CON Events, this is the largest Java developer event on the East Coast, and features a business track as well as two technical tracks. All attendees will have full access to all sessions at the event, so can either stay with one track or pick and choose specific sessions.

The Real-World Java Seminar, featuring more than 30 sessions, is packed with technical presentations delivered by the Java industry experts. Attending this event will allow delegates to take a fresh look at the architecture of your the projects they are working on now, and can serve as a roadmap for their further development as a Java professional.

Some of the sessions which will be presented on August 13, 2007 include:

Java 6.0 - New Features
While release of Java 6.0 did not introduce as many language changes as Java 5.0, it substantially improved performance and added lots of convenient features that will be covered in this presentation, namely, streamlined XML, scripting API, JavaScript engine, pluggable annotations, better monitoring with a new Console class, pluggable locales, reallocation of arrays, a small footprint database Java DB, desktop look and feel enhancements in Swing and more.

EJB 3. and Java Persistence API
Substantial simplification of EJB 3.0 puts them back in the toolbox of the enterprise Java developer. Java Persistence API allows you to persistence-enable your Plain Old Java Objects in a manner similar to a popular open source object-relational mapping tool Hibernate.This presentation starts with an overview of the EJB 3 and Java Persistence API architecture followed by a set of coding samples demonstrating database persistence of Java objects in action.

Concurrent Programming in Java
Multithreading was always one of the most important Java features. The java.util.concurrent package was introduced in Java 5, and this advanced talk focuses on proper techniques of writing thread-safe code, You'll learn how to use coincurrent collections, how to interrupt running tasks properly, will understand the benefits of using semaphores, barriers and latches. You'll also get familiar with thread pools, executors, and Callables objects, which will greatly improve scalability and performance of your applications.

Enterprise Service Bus as a Centerpiece of SOA Implemented with Java
ESB is a core component of the enterprise Service-Oriented Architecture. Is this a software, pattern or hardware? ESB decouples service providers and consumers, provides message routing and transformation between different data format and communication protocols. Services participate in the ESB using either Web Servies or JMS. How JBI (JSR-208) afects the ESB space? This presentation reviews open sorce ESB software and shows a reference architecture for implementing SOA.

EJB 3, Spring and Hibernate: A Comparative Analysis and Recommendations
The recent years have seen the Spring/Hibernate stack displace EJB 2 as the default application framework for the hippest enterprise Java developers. EJB 3 is a huge leap forward from yesteryear's heavyweight development model. However, are the improvements to EJB 3 enough to change the enterprise Java landscape yet again?

This session offers a comparative analysis of EJB 3 (including JPA), Spring and Hibernate to see how they really stack up with each other. The session will offer recommendations charting different courses of action depending on what is important for your application. A comparative analysis matrix will help you decide whether you should integrate parts of EJB 3 with Spring, use EJB 3 with some Spring features, port Hibernate code to JPA, move to EJB 3 altogether or use Spring/Hibernate without EJB 3.

XML Processing in Java
Latest Java releases include a number of changes related to XML processing. Schema validation and XPath queries are now parts of the language. Several data type classes have been added to match types defined by the W3C XML schema language. Java 6 added support for the JAX_WS Web services stack, data binding using JAXB 2.0, the StAX API for pull parsing. In this session, we'll explore the latest developments in the intersection of Java and XML.

Programming with Spring Framework
Spring is a leading full-stack open-source Java application framework built on the notion of programming with POJO (plain old java objects). Spring comes with an Inversion-of-Control container that provides a streamlined way for configuring an application and wiring up service dependencies. It lets you easily program cross-cutting concerns with AOP, persist you data using variety of techniques, or integrate with your legacy J2EE applications significantly reducing or eliminating most boilerplate code.This presentation will demonstrate the latest Spring features and best practices for the real world Java developers.

Adobe Flex for Java Developers
Rich Internet applications become a reality. While you can create the client portion of such applications using Java Swing applets, Adobe Flex offers you another alternative that will result in an Internet application running the GUI porttion of your application in fast virtual machine called Flash Player that will communicate with the server-side Java components or frameworks being that POJOs,EJBs, Spring, Hibernate or any other Java-related product. This session starts with explaining how Flex architecture and how it can be integrated in your existing or new Java EE applications. You'll also see how Eclipse plugins see how to introduce rapid application development into your Internet project.

AJAX for Java Developers
If you have an old-fashioned Web application, you can enrich your users' experience by introducing AJAX techniques, which will perform asynchronous data communication with the Web server and eliminate the need of browser page refreshes on each user request. In this session you'll learn how AJAX applications operate, what frameworks are available, what are the best practices, and potential roadblocks to avoid.

Ruby on Rails for Java Developers
Web development of CRUD applications with Ruby on Rails gets attention of many Java developers.RoR offers a way for fast creation of dynamic Web sites accessing remote databases. Developing a complex Web project may take a fraction of the time it would take with Java. This talk provides comparison of Java and Rails, to help you in translating your Java knowledge and skills into the world of Ruby and Rails. If you are wondering if ROR is enterprise-ready, if it scales, or how it integrates with Java, this talk is for you.
