Report: One-Day Conference “DOAG SIG Java 2010” about Java Enterprise Edition 6 (JEE 6)

Posted in Application Server, ESB, IT Conferences, Java / JEE on September 9th, 2010 by Kai Wähner

Today, I visited the one-day conference “DOAG SIG Java”. The main subject was the Java Enterprise Edition 6 (JEE 6).

I presented about applicability and limits of Java Server Faces 2.0 (JSF 2.0). You can download my (german) presentation slides:  DOAG SIG Java (Sept2010) – Einsatz und und Grenzen von Java Server Faces 2.0

“DOAG SIG Java” – What’s that?

The DOAG is a very large, german, independent Oracle-Usergroup. After the acqisition of Sun, the SIG Java was established to demarcate the Java technology from other business units (database, administration, …). Conferences are organized several times a year, the number of participants varies from 50 to 2000.

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.
