Ed Ort and Arun Gupta: What's New and Cool in Java EE 6
Today's lead Java Today story is Ed Ort's latest two-part "Deep Dive" production, Deep Dive: Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3 with Arun Gupta. Arun is a Sun Technology Evangelist who is deeply involved in the GlassFish project.
"Part 1. What's new and cool in Java EE 6" runs just over 19 minutes. After introducing Arun, Ed brings up the ease of use improvements in Java EE 6. Arun sums up the primary goals of Java EE 6 as follows:
More powerful and flexible
Easier to learn and use
Easier to evolve going forward
In terms of flexibility, Arun talks about the new profile capability, wherein you can create a customized subset of Java EE 6 that is targeted at a particular development environment (for example, web development) or a particular industrial vertical (for example, finance).
Arun provides code examples to demonstrate some of the new capabilities, starting out with JavaServer Faces 2.0 (JSR 314). He describes how facelets can be used as templates for multiple pages in an application, enabling convenient integration of, for example, CSS across a site's pages. He demonstrates construction of a web application using NetBeans 6.8 (RC1), GlassFish v3, and JSF 2.0 (using a facelet).
JSF 2.0 also includes AJAX support enabling updates of sections of a page, partial rendering of pages, etc. Ed asks about composite components in JSF 2.0. Arun explains that a composite component can be created out of a code fragme...
