The Linux Users’ Group of Davis will host a presentation on the Java Enterprise Edition development platform on Monday, March 19.
The event, which is free and open to the public, runs from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis. No RSVP is necessary.
Guest speaker Brian Lavender’s talk is titled “Attaining Critical Mass with Java EE.”
“Maybe you tried Java. You found it slow or you found it complex and encumbered with XML,” a news release said. “The good news is that Java EE (Java Platform, Enterprise Edition; formerly known as J2EE) has been evolving. The good news is that configuration by convention and annotations has simplified many of those complexities. Perhaps now is the time to take a new look.
“We will look at using both doing web pages using JSF (JavaServer Faces), Web Beans with Context Dependency Injection, and JPA (Java Persistence API). We will explore using both Netbeans and Eclipse IDEs (integrated development environment) for tooling.”
