Highlights of Java University at 2008 JavaOne

Posted by marinasum on April 8, 2008 at 9:05 AM PDT

Java University, which will begin on Monday, May 5, 2008 as part of 2008 JavaOne, is available for attendance by Conference Plus Pass and Java University Pass holders. At the podium will be experts who will expound on the latest of many popular technologies and tools as they relate to SOA and Web 2.0: the JavaFX and Java Card technologies; the Java EE, Java SE, and Java ME platforms; JRuby on Rails; Groovy and Grails; the Spring Framework; the NetBeans IDE; and the open-source GlassFish and OpenSolaris projects.

Here are the session highlights, courtesy of Joe Boulenouar, senior technical specialist at Sun.

  • Using Java EE 5 and SOA to Architect and Design Robust Enterprise Applications — In this session, you learn how to structure applications to head off the rogue side effects that impact quality of service, such as performance, reliability, availability, and security. The main topics are—

    • Design of robust enterprise applications
    • SOA capabilities that efficiently and cost-effectively respond to changing market conditions
    • The Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) that complies with the Java Business Integration (JBI) Specification and that helps automate, manage, and optimize business processes and workflows across systems and partners
  • Designing and Implementing Secure Java Technology Web Services — This session focuses on B2B applications, that is, it explains how to secure Web services that communicate with each other through XML documents. You'll work with the Java API for XML-based Web services (JAX-WS) to build a seamless, transparent process, independent of operating systems and other platforms.
  • Web 2.0: Building Dynamic Web Sites With Ajax and the Dojo Toolkit — This session explains how to build interactive Web applications with Asynchronous JavaScript and XML technologies (Ajax). You'll also explore how to to simplify the development process with the Dojo toolkit. Dojo offers APIs that interact with the DOM, a client-side event model, and a rich set of client-side UI components.
  • Developing Portable Java EE Applications With the Enterprise JavaBeans 3.x Component API — Learn how to do the following with the efficient and robust EJB 3.0 and EJB 3.1 framework:
    • Build business logic that can be invoked synchronously or asynchronously with an application server that complies with the Java EE platform.
    • Assemble and deploy portable, Java EE technology-based applications.
  • Developing Java Technology Applications With the Java Persistence API — The Java Persistence API enables the modeling of database entities, such as Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs), and integrates with EJB 3.x components to facilitate the development of enterprise applications. You'll learn how to develop and deploy data-driven applications with JPA on the Java EE and Java SE platforms.
  • Learning How Java ME Development Works Best for Mobile Devices — Despite the advent of numerous mobile devices over the years, the Java ME platform continues to be the preferred platform on which to build and deploy mobile applications. This session introduces the Java ME platform and midlets and teaches you how to efficiently develop an application with the NetBeans Mobility Pack IDE.
  • Web 2.0: Leveraging Project jMaki and Google Web Toolkit for Rapid Web-Site Development — jMaki interacts with Ajax component libraries, such as the Dojo toolkit, thus simplifying and enhancing Web development. This session shows you how to develop Ajax-enabled Web 2.0 applications with jMaki and the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) development framework.
  • Developing Enterprise Applications With the Spring Framework — Learn Spring
