My picks for Java EE track @ JavaOne 2016

Its time for JavaOne 2016 with a great line up of Java EE talks… Here are my favorite picks, filed into three categories. You should definitely consider attending few of these if you are one of the lucky JavaOne attendees !🙂

  • Java EE 8 – covers evolution of Java EE 8 in general along with talks targeted at the upcoming specifications (new, updated)
  • Java EE Microservices – these talks focus on how microservices based applications can be built using Java EE specifications
  • General – any other talk focusing on Java EE 7 or specific Java EE APIs
