ABSTRACT: Java EE 6 Community Update
This session is the latest update on the progress of Java EE 6 (JSR 317). The aim of the session is both to inform as well as encourage feedback.
Java EE 6 brings a number of profound changes to the platform. It drops a handful of outdated APIs, breaks up the monolithic platform into profiles and aims to add extensibility points as well as adding useful enhancements like standardizing JNDI naming. We will explore all of these changes in this session. We will also briefly overview some of the most important JSRs being developed under the Java EE 6 umbrella such as JSF 2.0, WebBeans, EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0, JAX-RS, Servlet 3.0 and the Bean Validation API(JSR 303).
A central goal of this session is open-ended discussion, so please do feel free to bring your questions, comments and ideas.
