August 2008 Meeting - Examining a Sample Application Built in Three Ways: Java™ Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE Platform), Spring 2.5, and Seam 2.0 Deployed on the GlassFish™ Project

For the month of August, the Tampa Java User Group will host another exciting presentation.  At our next meeting, speaker Carol McDonald, from Sun Microsystems, Inc, will present an analysis comparing an JSF-based application built using Java EE, Spring 2.5, and Seam with deployment on the Glassfish server.  Carol presented this material earlier this year during CommunityOne at JavaOne in May 2008 and she will be here in Tampa on Monday, August 11 to present this material to the Tampa JUG.

As always, come show our speaker and Sun Microsystems that the Tampa Bay area has a vibrant Java community interested in popular technologies.  If you plan to attend the meeting, bring a colleague. There will be giveaways, food, and opportunities to network with other Bay area technologists. There will be an RSVP email to follow later.

** NOTE ** The meting will be held on Monday, August 11th (not the usual last Tuesday).

Examining a Sample Application Built in Three Ways: Java™ Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE Platform), Spring 2.5, and Seam 2.0 Deployed on the GlassFish™ Project

Abstract:
This session looks at the implementation of the same web application developed with three open source frameworks and highlights what was done differently with each one. First it explains the implementation of the sample application with JavaServer™ Faces and Enterprise JavaBeans™ 3.0 (EJB™ 3.0) technology and the Java™ Persistence API (JPA). Next it looks at how this application was developed with JavaServer Faces technology, the JPA, and Spring 2.5. Finally, it looks at this application developed with JavaServer Faces and EJB 3.0 technology, the JPA, and Seam 2.0. The presentation highlights differences in the frameworks, such as the Seam context model for stateful components.

All three versions were deployed on GlassFish™ project V2, and the source code is made available in the session.
