Java EE 7 is here and the horizons for Java EE 8 are emerging. In order to solidly kick start Java EE 8, the GlassFish team conducted a series of community surveys. This session shares the content, results and analysis of these surveys. We will also share the detailed progress of Java EE 8 technologies already underway. The goal is to foster interest, discussion and participation around Java EE 8.
Some of the items covered include HTTP 2, Server-Sent Events (SSE), JSON binding, JCache, CDI/EJB alignment, cloud, PaaS, multitenancy/SaaS, JMS 2.1, JAX-RS 2.1, CDI 2, security simplification, REST management/monitoring, an action-oriented Web framework and much, much more. You are encouraged to bring your questions, comments and ideas. The time to get involved in shaping the future of Java EE is now!
