Overview of JEE6 and JBoss AS7
Prabhat Jha


In this session, Prabhat will introduce you to the next evolution of the JBoss Application Server as well as an introduction to game changing enhancements to Java EE6. JBoss AS7 represents a new approach to middleware; you can expect more than optimal boot time, much easier management, lower total cost of ownership and and much improved developer productivity. Java EE6 includes new features in Servlets, EJB, Bean Validation, JPA 2.0 criteria queries and the standardization of dependency injection (JSR 299 CDI). While it will be difficult to go into details of each feature and some of the topics such as CDI and JAX-RX have already been covered in detail during previous meetings, Prahbhat will cover the gist of these topics in the allotted time period .
