With a strong focus on annotations, minimalist configuration, intelligent defaults and Java centric type-safety, Java EE is one of the most productive full-stack development platforms around today. This very code centric workshop is a quick tour of the Java EE platform as it stands today. If you haven't seen Java EE for a while and want to catch up, this session is definitely for you.
We will start with the basic principals of what Java EE is and what it is not, overview the platform at a high level and then dive into each key API like JSF, CDI, EJB 3, JPA, JAX-RS, WebSocket and JMS using examples and demos. This is your chance to look at Java EE 7 in the context of a realistic application named Cargo Tracker, available with an MIT license at http://cargotracker.java.net.
We will also briefly take a look at the emerging horizons of Java EE 8.
