It’s time for another workshop from Oracle. As usual, I receive a workshop invitation from Oracle:
Modern Enterprise Java Development
You are invited to attend the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) Java Workshop, a free, hands-on workshop that will focus on Java EE 6 and designed to enrich the development experience of enterprise Java developers.
- Gain a better understanding of Oracle WebLogic Server’s capabilities and a glimpse into Java EE 7 and cloud enablement
- Dive into the different layers of a typical Java EE Web application and learn how to implement them using the latest Java EE features
- Learn how the latest Java EE 6 features provide a modern, lightweight Java development experience
- Gain insight into why scaling web applications is challenging and learn some tips and tricks on how to deal with the issues involved
- Hear about the integration of Coherence and Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle GlassFish Server and the native capabilities of each servers for HTTP session state management
- Learn how to configure and use powerful Eclipse plug-ins to develop, build, and deploy with Maven and Hudson for continuous build integration
- Learn how to develop a simple Java console-based application to access, update and remove simple types of information from a Coherence-clustered cache

I arrived at Oracle’s HQ in Level 23, The Garden. I guess they are cutting down on cost so the only goodies I get is an Oracle folder, a few sheets of paper and an Oracle Linux CD. It’s okay with me since it’s kind of annoying to bring along my laptop back-pack along with a bunch of goodies especially when you take the train to come to MidValley.
The second speaker is Chuk-Munn Lee where he talked about “Exploring Java EE 6”.
- GlassFish Server V3 – Is free and most probably the most advanced web server application in the market
- JRuby – Is faster than the original Ruby
- WebXML – Format everybody loves to hate
- The use of annotation “” – If you have source code
- The use of XML – If you don’t have source code/file
- Multitenancy in Java EE 7
- Scaling application in thread – requires a lot of CPU
- Some overview of JRockit and how it can be used to manage application
I’ve never heard of GlassFish before eventhough one of the application my company is selling is using Tomcat and Jetty and based on Spring Framework. I think it’s time for my company to focus on Java instead of PHP. It was also the first time I’ve head of Maven and Hudson so it was an eye opener for me too.

There were 2 hands-on lab:
- Oracle WebLogic Server Development with Eclipse, maven and Hudson
- A Step-By-Step Guide to Oracle Coherence
I only managed to finish the 1st lab. By the time I was finished, it’s already time to leave.
Thank you Oracle.
