London GlassFish User Group - 'Code-driven Introduction to Java EE7' with Arun Gupta

The second London GlassFish User Group event, organised by C2B2 together with JaxLondon 2013 was a part of the conference Community Night – ‘a beer, wine and code fuelled ‘taster’ of the main conference, organised in conjunction with UK user groups and sponsors’. 

GlassFish and JEE enthusiasts got together on Tuesday evening, at the end of a second day of the conference, to listen to Arun Gupta - one of the most influential people in the Java EE and GlassFish world, previously Oracle’s GlassFish and JEE Evangelist, now working for Red Hat as a Director of Developer Advocacy.

During the event, our London GlassFish community members had a chance to see Arun’s ‘Code-driven Introduction to Java EE7’ presentation, ask him questions and have a chat with the expert himself and other community members during the networking break with some beers and pizza.

For those of you who missed the event we've published the video recording of Arun’s talk (join London GUG on Metetup so you won’t miss any future ones!) : 


The Java EE 7 platform focuses on Boosting Productivity and Embracing HTML5. JAX-RS 2 adds a new Client API to invoke the RESTful endpoints. JMS 2 introduces a new simplified API to align with improvements in the Java language. Long awaited Batch Processing API and Concurrency Utilities are now part of platform offering richer functionality. A new API to build WebSocket driven applications and JSON parsing and generation is now included in the platform. JavaServer Faces has added support for HTML5 forms. Several other improvements are available in this latest version of the platform. Together these APIs will allow you to be more productive by simplifying enterprise development. This session will provide an introduction to the Java EE 7 platform. The attendees will learn the design patterns of building an application using Java EE 7.
