Java EE6 Road Show: Featuring Java Expert, Arun Gupta, Comes to Dallas

Arun Gupta Profile Picture Arun Gupta is a GlassFish evangelist formally with Sun Microsystems, now with Oracle. He has over 13 years of experience in the software industry working with various technologies, Java platforms and several Web-related technologies. In his current role, he creates and fosters the community surrounding GlassFish. He has participated in several standard bodies and worked amicably with members from other companies. He has been with the Java EE team since its inception and contributed to all Java EE releases.

The Java EE6 Road Show is being presented in coordination with Oracle University. The Road Show made its first stop in Atlanta at the Atlanta Java User Group's annual convention, DevNexus, on March 8 and 9, 2010. The second event is being held May 18, 2010, at the Dallas, Texas, SMU Plano campus. Dallas��� event will feature Arun Gupta as he presents on "Java EE 6 & GlassFish v3: Paving the Path for Future."

The Java EE 6 platform is an extreme makeover from previous versions. It is developed as JSR 316 under the Java Community Process. The Java EE 6 platform adds more power to the platform, and yet makes it more flexible, so that it can be adapted to different flavors of an application. It breaks the "one size fits all" approach with profiles and improves on the Java EE 5 developer productivity features. It enables extensibility by embracing open source libraries and frameworks such that they are treated as first class citizens of the platform. Several new specifications, such as Java Server Faces 2.0, Servlet 3.0, Java Persistence API 2.0 and Context and Dependency Injection 1.0, are included in the platform. All of these specifications are implemented in GlassFish v3, providing a light-weight, modular and extensible platform for your Web applications.

These workshops are taught by Sun Java EE 6 Engineers - the developers who work on the actual APIs and Specifications - and are aimed at programmers and developers who want to become experts in the use and development of Enterprise and Web applications, using the Java EE 6 Platform.

The Java Programming Language has come a long way since it was developed at Sun Microsystems by James Gosling. Today, it is a robust, stable and efficient programming language used by most large enterprises and Web 2.0 companies. This is a rare opportunity to learn about the features of the new platform from a participant in the creation of the newest release.
