I had the pleasure to review JavaServer Faces: Introduction by Example by Josh Juneau which has been published by Apress in December 2014.
The highlight of the book was the simplicity with which Josh has covered some of the most complicated topics related to JavaServer Faces (JSF).
I like how smoothly and seamlessly he can transition from the simple recipes to the more involved and detailed...

I estimate that this is my 15th or 16th JavaOne. I started in 1998 or 1999 and missed 2003 due to the birth of my first son. Aside from that, I haven't missed one since. I consider myself very blessed to have taken a small part in such a long and fun ride. To add blessing on top of blessing, this is the fourh JavaOne at which I have had the honor to teach a class at Java University. My good...

My JavaOne 2013: Wrapup
This blog entry summarizes my session participation at JavaOne 2013. I plan to update this entry with links to the content on Parleys.com as it becomes available.
Sessions I Attended
In general, speaking more than listening is a very bad way to live. I find this holds true at conferences as well. Here are the sessions I attended. I attended eight and presented six, so I...

Looking Forward to JavaOne Sunday: JUG Forums, NetBeans Day, GlassFish, Technical Keynotes, Duke's Choice Awards
It used to be that Sunday was a fairly relaxing day for most. Not anymore! This year, Sunday is already overcrowded with many more events and sessions than one can possibly attend, as the JavaOne 2013 Content Catalog Sunday entries demonstrate.

Using the Java 8 Date Time Classes with JPA!
With the Java 8 SE release, developers get a splendid new best-in-class Date-Time API. Wouldn't it be nice if you could use it with JPA? Not so fast. JPA and for that matter JDBC know nothing about the new classes, and if you use them in your entities, JPA will map them to BLOBs in your database by default. This happens in DDL or database creation, in...

Server-Sent Events (SSE) is part of HTML5. SSE is a simple, undirectional communication from server to browser. It allows server to push data to client once a connection is established. The entire point of SSE is to make it easy for the server to push messages to the browser, once the browser has first established a connection to the server. These messages are of the form "field: value" with...

javax.servlet.http.HttpSession provides a way to identify an user across multiple HTTP requests and to store user specified information. In other words, it provides a support of stateful communications with the stateless HTTP protocol.
For security and memory management, sessions need to be invalidated at a certain time. There are two related methods in HttpSession.

Web Services and XML
It actually happened a few weeks ago already, but I simply didn't find the time to spread the word earlier -- just too much other stuff to do (see end of posting), so I tell you now: WebDAV Support for JAX-RS 1.2 is out!
What has happened since 1.1?
First of all, 1.2 is a complete internal overhaul, which not only finally is covered with unit tests rather completely (which revealed several...

Backbone.js gives structure to web applications by providing models with key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing API over a RESTful JSON interface. JAX-RS provides a standardized API for building RESTful web services in Java. This example will show how to...
