JavaLand 2015 & Java aktuell

Last week I visited JavaLand 2015. This great software conference [1] with lot of community activities resides in my home town Brühl [2].

Beside attending lots of tracks I had the opportunity to meet a couple of people face-to-face like Ed Burns (JSF Spec Lead), Geertjan Wielenga (NetBeans product manager), Arun Gupta (Java EE evangelist) and more, especial lot of JUG members from all over Germany. Read an article about my impressions [3].

Most slides are available for download now [4].

And I had the chance, to attend the celebration of 5 years Java aktuell, the Java magazine by the iJUG [5]. Great!


Conversation Scope

Our next task is to create a new book entry or to edit an existing one. The book editor shall consist of a tab panel offering one page for the books meta data like title, author, publisher, and one page for each language, where you can edit a review. It must be possible to switch between these pages without loosing data. Not very hard to imagine, that we need a backing bean living longer than just one request. “Conversation Scope” weiterlesen

NetBeans 8.1

NetBeans 8.1 is scheduled for the mid of 2015. By now, most enhancements are included for the frontend (browser) development, like JavaScript frameworks, JavaScript editor, debugging facilities and more. Also support for the server side is enhanced, especial for Node and PHP. Since Java EE offers everything you need for server side programming, I hope there will be remarkable enhancements for this technology too. By now, support for remote WebLogic is integrated. “NetBeans 8.1” weiterlesen
