Why do we organize this seminar ?

  • If you are more interested in a higher-level management overview of Java EE 5, please check out the Java EE 5 executive Overview.
  • If you are more interested in an in-depth technical overview of Java EE 5, please check out the Java EE 5 Technical Overview.
  • However, these 2 seminars were designed to be loosely-coupled and minimally overlapping so that you get the full picture during these 2 days, first the big picture of what Java EE 5 is, what sort of applications it is suitable for, and what is involved; and then the more detailed picture of the presentation, business and persistence layer of Java EE 5. Of course, if you attend both days, you get an extra discount.

In the two-day seminar, you will learn some of the key new features of the Java EE (Enterprise Edition) 5 platform and how it simplifies the development of enterprise applications. During the first day of this seminar, Stephan Janssen will present an executive overview of Java EE 5 by putting everything in perspective. Stephan will explain (and compare) the many options for developing enterprise Java applications. During the second day, you will get more technical insight in the novelties of Java EE 5, in particular EJB 3.0, Java Server Faces and the new additions to support service-oriented development. Although this seminar is optimally "consumed" as a two-day seminar, it is possible to attend only the executive overview or the more technical overview.

The seminar starts with a closer look at the Java EE status and roadmap. Major features of Java EE 5 are Ease of Development (EoD) enhancements using Plain Ordinary Java Objects (POJO) based persistency. As a result, EJB development gets greatly simplified. We will also look at how annotations can be used for defining persistence units, Web services, enterprise beans and dependency injection within Java EE 5.

Because most companies have been using J2EE for some time, and have probably tried to simplify and accelerate J2EE development using Spring, Hibernate and Struts, we will also cover the impact of Java EE 5 on the existing J2EE API's, the Spring and Struts frameworks (open source application frameworks that made J2EE development a whole lot easier), as well as the Hibernate persistency solution and its relationship with EJB 3.0.

You will receive an introduction to the drag and drop web application development with JavaServer Faces. We'll discuss the extensible UI component model, designed to use for tools, and explain how it works and what tools are available. We will also look at Ajax, the new paradigm for building rich internet applications.

Because of the success of service-oriented architectures and Web services, we will also look at how JEE5 simplifies SOA and Web services development, in particular how JAX-WS 2.0, annotations and dependency injection can simplify the programming model. Also: how does REST fit in, and how does it compare to SOAP ?

Why should you attend this seminar ?

This two-day seminar gives a pragmatic overview of the Java EE 5 platform.

By attending this seminar, you will get a good understanding of what is important in Java EE 5, why this was included, and what the advantages and disadvantages of the available options are. The first day give you the higher-level overview, while the second day looks more in-depth at the technical details of Java EE 5.

Who should attend this seminar ?

This seminar is targeted towards solution architects, software developers and project managers who want to know how Java EE 5 looks and feels like.

This seminar is particularly useful for:

  • Technical IT managers who are responsible for Java development
  • Solution architects and project managers who want to design, develop and integrate applications
  • Software developers and anyone else who want to see the bigger picture of Java Enterprise Edition
