Java versus .NET
Java� 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (
J2EE �) and the Microsoft .NET architecture both hold promise of being the predominant enterprise application framework for the next several years. This session ignores all the hype and hoopla associated with marketing campaigns, and compares and contrasts the J2EE � and .NET development frameworks in multiple, detailed ways.

March 12, 2002 - Pravin V. Tulachan

"Understanding and Guide to writing container-managed Entity Bean in EJB 2.0"
Involves a code walk through and live demo that is geared towards developers.
Pravin is the author of upcoming
J2EE � book series J2EE � Boot Camp: Developing Enterprise JavaBeans

July 9, 2002 - Keith Babo

How ebXML is used with Java for handling electronic collaboration and commerce.
The discussion included comparisons with Web Services, their standards, approaches, pros and cons.
Keith Babo is a Sun Microsystems
iPlanet� developer and works with the iPlanet� Integration Server product suite, including iPlanet� ECXpert and TradingXpert. The presentation dealt strictly with the technical details of the Java and ebXML evolution.

August 13, 2002 - Christophe Job, Oracle Technology Network

J2EE Frameworks - The Future of Java Development
A discussion on the current state of Java development tools and what's in store for the future of Java and
J2EE � development. The talk was highlight the current-day advancements in Java IDEs and then go on to talk about J2EE � Frameworks and how they will be the means in which applications are built in years to come. Oracle9i & JDeveloper trial CD's were available from Oracle.

September 10, 2002 - Iain Armstrong

Novell 's Technical Account Manager, Lain Armstrong presented "A Technical Overview of Web Services and Related Technologies".

This presentation covered the core technologies in detail, including SOAP , WSDL, and UDDI - and how to leverage industry standards such as J2EE � and XML. In addition you will learn the fundamental skills needed to produce, deploy, and consume a web service. Topics include how to build a web service, expose it via SOAP , describe it via WSDL, register it via UDDI and finally discover a web service and invoke it using a SOAP client. Deploy all of your web services into a standard J2EE � application server such as SilverStream Application Server, WebSphere, or WebLogic.

October 8, 2002 - SpacialFX, ObjectFX

Build and Deploy Serious, Real-Time Location-based Solutions
SpatialFX� is a unique Java-based platform that enables the dynamic integration of location and business data, delivered in interactive, geographic and logical displays. Deploy on any client-side platform, from wireless devices to the thinnest web clients to the highest bandwidth enterprise network. The result for application users? Better dynamic asset visibility and management.

November 12, 2002 - Keith Babo, Sun Microsystems

SOAP Messaging in Java - A Primer

A developer-oriented walk through of the SOAP messaging APIs in Java, including: SAAJ , JAXM , and JAX-RPC . The talk included a description of the APIs, when/why they are used, and a good bit of code to demonstrate what they offer. Keith also touched upon the practical aspects of using the APIs in commercial applications and how they can be extended to accommodate application-specific semantics and derivative SOAP protocols (e.g. ebXML ).

Rathin Raval - J2EE Dynamics & Kinematics
Cheap computing power and hike in network bandwidth are the vital stimulants for increase seen in the development of distributed component-based computing applications. The distributed component-based application can broadly be seen as a configuration of services provided by different application components running on physically same and/or independent computers that appear to the users of the system as a single application running on a single physical machine. J2EE puts at enterprise developers� disposal an excellent tool kit of component technologies that hide the complexities of multi-threaded, distributed, server-side applications. J2EE allows the flexibility for a wide range of design and implementation variations. But sometimes these variations may introduce limited extensibility, inadequate salability, or simply unneeded complexity. Thus the task of developing high-quality J2EE applications requires a deep understanding of proven enterprise frameworks which provide structure and reduce the above mentioned risks. What is a J2EE framework? It is a set of reusable services and components coupled with an associated set of design guidelines which together simplify development.The varied frameworks designed and available, solves common developer headaches - such as managing connections to databases, maintaining security, handling exceptions, and application logging - and frees the developer from implementing a solution for the above mentioned problems with every application. In this presentation we looked at the dynamics and kinematics of some popular frameworks and how we can use them in our projects.
