JavaOne 2015 Java EE Track Committee: Ryan Cuprak

This is the fourth and last in a series of interviews for you to meet some of the committee members for the JavaOne 2015 Java EE track. We will next move on to interviewing some of the key accepted speakers in the track this year.

The committee plays the most important part in determining the content for JavaOne. These good folks really deserve recognition as most of them devote many hours of their time helping (more...)

The Ghosts of Java EE 7 in Production: Past, Present and Future

In the past few days I've seen a certain predictable group of folks on the Interwebs feigning concern over the viability of using Java EE 7 in production. I have to be honest in that I think it is fairly obvious these concerns are more -ahem- opportunistic than sincere or well-intentioned. Nevertheless I think this is a great trigger to discuss something valuable to the Java EE community anyway - Java EE 7 production adoption (more...)

Devoxx Replay: Java EE Security API (JSR 375)

A few weeks ago, Alex Kosowski (JSR 375 Specification Lead) gave a session at Devoxx Paris on the new Java EE Security API (JSR 375). During that session, Alex gave some background and the motivations that led to the creation of JSR 375. Alex then outlined some of the initial plans of the Expert Groups.

This session is particularly useful to understand what the EG is trying to accomplish, it will also provide (more...)

Java EE Deployment Scenarios for Docker Containers

I've been posting some content around Docker since a while and I like to play around with containers in general. You can find some more information about how to run Docker-Machine on Windows and also showed you how to use the Docker 1.6 client. One of the first blog posts was a compilation of all kinds of resources around Java EE, Docker and Maven for Java EE developers. Working more detailed and often with (more...)

Continuous Delivery with Docker Containers and Java EE

Organizations need a way to make application delivery fast, predictable and secure and the agility provided by containers, such as docker, help developers realize this goal. For Java EE applications, this enables packaging of applications, the application server, and other dependencies in a container that can be replicated in build, test, and production environments. This takes you one step closer to achieving continuous delivery. At least this was the abstract on the Webinar Thomas and (more...)
