IBM has started shipping a public beta of WebSphere 7.0, supporting JEE 5 and JDK 6. You can download it here, and discuss it at the WAS 7.0 beta forum.

It will be interesting to see who will be first to publish a production version: IBM, Oracle (current status: technology preview 4) or JBoss (current status: Beta 4; RC1 coming in June).

Have you, as a Java software develepor, ever had to defend your language?

Here’s what I mean, you may recognize this. Many non-IT people know about Java when I tell them I am a software developer using the Java platform. Nearly every computer has Java installed on it and people use it in applets and consumer applications. But the end-user’s experience has been terrible from the start, because Java takes a really long time loading, while bringing up a splash screen faster with each release reminding you that it is JAVA you are waiting for. And then that’s what people know about Java: it’s slow.

I love being a Java developer and would not want to switch to another platform or language, but I just don’t have an answer to those friends and family of mine saying ‘Oh yeah Java, that thing on my computer that take such a long time loading.. can’t you fix that?’.

Well, maybe times are finally changing. James Gosling pointed me to a download page of Java  SE 6 Update 10 that promises to have made some progress on some of those end-user’s experience issues.
One of the features included is a Java Kernel online installer that can help you when you need to download a new version of Java. It actually ‘lets first time Java users run applets and Java Web Start applications quicker without waiting for the whole Java Platform to be downloaded.‘ Why did that have to take so long?

There are other enhancements like features that promise to ease the burden for developers on deploying applications to end-users. But, to be honest, I am not that interested because I only develop for the server-side. This time I just hope that in the future I can take I just little more pride in telling people on parties that I am a Java developer..

Bryant Harris has a new article published on DevX, called “The Why and How Behind Listener-Based Dependency Injection.” The article discusses the ability to add listeners to a Spring-managed bean, via a custom Spring namespace. [devx.com]

Na meer dan 2 jaar nadert de nieuwe Java Portlet Specificicatie 2.0 zijn voltooiing. Deze nieuwe specificatie is een subtantiele uitbreiding op de huidige specificatie (JSR-168). Met de nieuwe specificatie zijn o.a. inter-portlet communicatie, download en AJAX ondersteuning gestandaardiseerd!

Op IBM developerWorks is een artikel What’s new in the Java Portlet Specification V2.0 (JSR 286)? verschenen waarin de verschillen met de huidige specificatie inzichtelijk zijn gemaakt.

De specificatie is te vinden op jcp.org.

James Gosling has given his blessing (or is that His Blessing? :-) ) to BGGA Closures. Though this is by no means the last word spoken on the subject, James’ vote is an influential one, so the chances of BGGA over CICE and FCM have improved quite a bit.

Don’t rule out “none of the above” though.

The New Features in EJB 3.1” is a preview of the changes the EJB 3.1 expert group is working on for the next version of the Java EE specification. The idea is to give you a head’s up on the changes as well as gather your feedback early so the expert group has the best chance of getting it right.  [TheServerSide]

Op 16 april 2008 vindt de J-Spring conferentie van de NLJUG plaats. De conferentie zal worden gehouden in conferentiecentrum ‘t Spant in Bussum.

De organisatie is op zoek naar jou als spreker, om een invulling te geven aan een van de beschikbare tijdsloten.

Als je een interessant Java gerelateerd onderwerp hebt en dit wilt presenteren aan mede NLJUG leden, dan is dit je kans. Een tijdslot bedraagt 50 minuten. Bezoekers van onze conferenties beschikken over het algemeen over gemiddelde tot geavanceerde Java kennis en zijn vooral op zoek naar sessies om hun praktische kennis van Java te versterken. De best scorende sessies zijn meestal technische sessies met best practices, code voorbeelden en/of demo’s.

Voor J-Fall zijn een zestal tracks gedefinieerd:

  • Core – onderwerpen betreffende de core API’s van Java SE
  • Enterprise – onderwerpen betreffende API’s van Java EE, maar ook web development, architectuur, integratie en SOA/BPM achtige zaken
  • Methodology – onderwerpen betreffende het software ontwikkelproces van een Java project
  • Mobile & Embedded – Java op mobile devices, in de embedded en real-time wereld
  • New & Cool – populaire nieuwe technologie en/of opmerkelijke toepassingen van Java in de praktijk
  • Tools – ondersteunende tooling voor het ontwerpen en/of ontwikkelen van Java applicaties of het automatiseren van het software ontwikkelproces

Je sessievoorstel moet minimaal de volgende onderdelen bevatten:

  • Titel
  • Naam / namen van de spreker(s)
  • Korte omschrijving van de sessie (minimaal 100 woorden)
  • Niveau (beginner / intermediate / advanced)
  • Track waarbinnen deze kan worden geplaatst (zie boven)
  • Vereiste voorkennis
  • Een structurele beschrijving van de opbouw van de presentatie

N.B. Incomplete voorstellen worden helaas niet in behandeling genomen!

Stuur je aanmelding voor 15 februari 2008 naar papers@nljug.org. Eind februari zal de voorbereidingscommissie zich buigen over de voorstellen en het programma samenstellen. Uiterlijk eind februari ontvang je bericht of je sessie is geselecteerd.

De afgelopen conferentie (J-Fall 2007) trok meer dan 1000 bezoekers. Wil je meer weten over voorgaande evenementen van de NLJUG, bezoek dan onze website www.nljug.org

De deadline voor deze CFP is 15 februari 2008

After rumours and speculation that has been going on for quite some time, SpringSource has announced that Spring certification is being started this January, as  mentioned on their blog. They are starting with a Spring Framework Professional certification, which seems a somewhat generic certifcation program for the core Spring functionalities.

There are mainly three routes towards becoming certified.

A person is eligible to register for the certification exam if

1.  that person has recently attended the 4 day Core Spring course OR

2. has significantly contributed to the Spring community, OR

3. can provide a reference to a Spring development effort in which he or she was actively involved.

Additional phases of the SpringSource Certification Program, scheduled for continued release throughout 2008, will include the following certifications:

  •     SpringSource Web Technologies Professional       
  •     SpringSource Advanced Methodologies Professional   
  •     SpringSource Integration Professional       
  •     SpringSource Application Management Professional

Starting the new year with a bang, the Wicket Team has released Apache Wicket 1.3. Apache Wicket is one of the fastest growing Java open source component based web frameworks. Improvements include portal compatibility, Velocity support, hybrid URLs, improved components, and package simplifications. With this release comes a lot of great successes, but most of all the team wanted to express their wishes to everyone for a happy new year. [TheServerSide]
