What You Can Build In 50 Minutes With Java EE 5/6?

My session was actually 50 and not 60 Minutes long - so I had to cut the REST and JMS stuff. However, I managed to develop the following:

Introduction of Java EE 5 (with Glassfish 2.1 and Netbeans 6.5):

  1. Started Glassfish v2.1
  2. Developed: 2 EJBs 3
  3. Exposed one as WebService
  4. Used DI to connect them
  5. Implemented a JPA entity
  6. Injected the EntityManager into a SessionBean
  7. Build an interceptor and applied it.
  8. Answered about 10 questions about different topics :-)
  9. Deployed a JSF
  10. Used databinding to create JPA
  11. Passed the JPA-Entity to the session bean
  12. ...I presented 3 slides :-)

Introduction to Java EE 6 (Glassfish v3 EA and Netbeans 6.7m2):

  1. Implemented and deployed a @Singleton, @Startup Bean
  2. Injected a no-interface @Stateless Session Bean into it
  3. Created a Servlet
  4. Injected the @Stateless Session into the Servlet
  5. Answered several questions again. 
The whole session was recorded and is available online.

Hii Adam,

Iam doing some research on JBoss vs Glass Fish server.

Some people say Glass Fish is not yet ready for enterprise level projects.

What is your perspective on Glass Fish vs JBoss.

I use GF v1-v2 for about 2-3 years in production - works perfectly. However, GF v3, is not ready yet for enterprise projects. Reason: Java EE 6 is not completed yet :-),

Thanks Adam.

I recently got connected to your blog through twitter. I see lot of intresting stuff in your blogs.

You are doing a great work on not only learning but also passing knowledge to the other people.
