October 2017 Meeting Information


October 10, 2017
Java EE 8 and Java EE 9 ‐ What You Need to Know!

This month, we welcome Reza Rahman to present to our group!

The process of defining the scope for Java EE 8 was the most community opinion driven in the history of the platform. Java EE 8 is supposed to solidly enable HTTP/2, Server-Sent Events (SSE), JSON and aligning all parts of the platform with Java SE 8. It includes a much awaited security API overhaul, a brand new MVC API as well as a slew of critical updates to APIs like JSF, JMS, JPA, JAX-RS and CDI. Unfortunately the road to Java EE 8 has not been smooth. After a long and silent delay Oracle announced updated plans for Java EE 8 and Java EE 9. The plans now include adding support for dynamic configuration, health-checks, NoSQL, fat-jars, eventual consistency, multi-tenancy, dynamic discovery and circuit breakers.

This session will explain the course of events including the details of what is proposed for Java EE 8 and Java EE 9. Reza will also discuss the critical role Java EE and it's APIs play in maintaining the health of the entire Java ecosystem.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
