In my last blog  I showed you how to invoke Nashorn, how to add a Java class and how to invoke a method on it. Now, we want to perform some queries on a bigger amount of data. You can find a description of this data structure on the free sample pages of my […]
NetBeans offers a real cool feature called Code Templates. This feature is available throughout the whole IDE. In my series, I explain it within the context of Java EE, but you might use it anywhere.

During the next few moth, I’m going to attend the JavaLand  conference as well as the Parallel 2015 . The first one resides in my home town. It’s a conference about various up-to-date Java topics. And you might meet some members of the JSF expert group there.

Thus, there is no user interface with immediate response after each input or lots of hints. Of course, those features are essential for an application for potentially “unknown” users.

Source code for the applications as described so far is available from . Developed with the current version of NetBeans and GlassFish.  leanpub.com/jsf  webdevelopment-java.info
Have you heard about the series “My top 5 NetBeans features”? NetBeans users report their favorite features. I just want to point out only one small (and almost hidden), but valuable feature, which is included in the upcoming version NetBeans 8.0.1.
JSF 2.2 comes in conjunction with EL 3.0. This version of the expression language offers a rarely known highlight: It is capable of using lambda expressions and streams. Even thought defined withing the Jave EE 7 spec (and not Java 8), you can still use these cool features!
