Java EE, Extendable to Functional (inklusive Nighthacking on Tour)

David Blevins (Stephen Chin und Sebastian Daschner)

Nighthacking on Tour

Nighthacking on Tour legt mal wieder einen Zwischenstop in Darmstadt ein. Stephen Chin wird rund um unseren Hauptvortrag mit David Blevins durch den Abend führen, das Event ins Internet streamen und David interviewen. Je nach Lust und Zeit gibt es dann noch zusätzlich kurze Vorträge zu “Raspberry Pi with Java” (Stephen Chin) oder “Putting Hypermedia Back in REST with JAX-RS” (Sebastian Daschner). Ende der Vorträge ist dann gegen 21 Uhr, anschließend findet aber wieder unser Stammtisch im Hotzenplotz statt.

Abstract Hauptvortrag

Java EE 7 holds two critical gems many developers never employ: CDI Scopes and Java EE Connectors. Do you have any code storing objects in hashmaps? You can kill that code with custom scopes. Need to interact with a system that doesn’t speak HTTP? Stop writing endless wrapping endpoints and just support that protocol natively with Java EE Connectors. We’ll explore both in detail through concrete and runnable code examples that will have you ready to code.

​We’ll also explore the role of Functional programming in Java EE. With a mix of usable Java EE 7 and potential Java EE 8 features, we’ll take concepts like @Schedule annotations and Bean Validation and see how they might be fundamentally changed with Java 8 language enhancements like lambdas and method references.
