Presentation: "Java EE 7 and HTML5: Developing for the Cloud"

Time: Tuesday 12:05 - 13:05

Location: Salon C

This talk will give you an update of Java EE 7 platform development, the latest revision of the Java platform for the enterprise that is being developed by the Java Community Process, and update you on Project Avatar. The focus of Java EE 7 is on the cloud, and specifically it aims to bring Platform-as-a-Service providers and application developers together so that portable applications can be deployed on any cloud infrastructure and reap all its benefits in terms of scalability, elasticity, multitenancy, etc.   The focus of Project Avatar is making HTML5, Websockets and JSON easier and more fun for Java developers and HTML developers alike.

Of course, Java EE 7 continues the ease of development push that characterized prior releases by bringing further simplification to enterprise development. It also adds new, important APIs such as the REST client API in JAX-RS 2.0, JSON, and the long awaited Concurrency Utilities for Java EE API, and plenty of improvements to other components.
