Gavin King will be speaking about Web Beans at the Silicon Valley Web Developer JUG meeting on October 16th. This JUG meets at 6:30pm on the third Tuesday of each month at Google in Mountain View, California.

  • 18:30-19:00 Arrive & mingle -- Food & drinks provided by Google
  • 19:00-20:30 Web Beans Presentation

The goal of JSR 299 (Web Beans) is to enable EJB 3.0 components to be used as JSF managed beans, unifying the two component models and enabling a considerable simplification to the programming model for web-based applications in Java. In particular, this work will provide a programming model suitable for rapid development of simple data-driven applications without sacrificing the full power of the Java EE 5 platform. This is a domain where Java EE has been perceived as overly complex.

Gavin King is the founder of the Hibernate project, the leading persistence solution for Java. He is an active member of the JSR-220 expert group, and contributed heavily to the design of EJB 3.0. With Christian Bauer, he was author of Hibernate in Action. Gavin works for JBoss, Inc, leading the development of Hibernate, implementing EJB 3.0, and providing services to JBoss customers.

These meetings are always free to attend and open to the general public. Please see the October Meeting announcement for the full details. Next month, the November Meeting topic is Enterprise Comet and the speakers will be Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows from Kaazing.

The JUG will be taking a break in December. However, we are already working on event speakers for next year. Our available meeting dates for next year are listed in this Upcoming Events Calendar.

That's All Folks!
