10 interesting Statements of Adam Bien about the Java Enterprise Edition 6 (JEE 6)

Posted in Application Server, ESB, Java / JEE on September 10th, 2010 by Kai Wähner

Yesterday, I visited the one-day conference “DOAG SIG Java”, because I presented about applicability and limits of Java Server Faces 2.0 (JSF 2.0). The main subject was the Java Enterprise Edition 6 (JEE 6). I wrote a report about it in another blog entry: One-Day Conference “DOAG SIG Java 2010” about Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) 6.

The final track included a live demo of Adam Bien, a well-known JEE expert, author and speaker (also involved in the JEE specs). A very nice “live show” of the JEE 6 features!
The participants (including me) asked a lot of questions crititcally, Adam Bien always had very good answers and explanations because of his excessive experiences with Java technologies for several years.

JEE Development using JRebel with IBM WebSphere (WAS) 6.1 and RAD 7.0

JEE Development using JRebel with IBM WebSphere (WAS) 6.1 and RAD 7.0

I want to share my experiences with JRebel (http://www.zeroturnaround.com/jrebel/). If you need some neutral information about this product to ease development with J2EE / JEE applications and application servers, this blog entry is for you!

Problems with JEE Application Servers

If you develop with WAS, no matter if it is version 5 / 6 / 6.1 / 7, deployment takes a very long time. Even changing a single line of code (e.g. to add a System.out.println) takes about 15 minutes in our project for publishing the changes, because you always have to do a build and redeployment. So, sometimes you have to wait 50 percent of your working time until WebSphere is ready again.
