Java Application Server day: slides, photos and reports are online!

July 6, 2009

The Java Application Server day took place on the 21st of May, with a remarkable attendance of over 100 participants (of which about 20% from out of town); the high technical level of the speakers presentations, hot topics and lively audience made for an engaging event.

We are happy to announce that all the Server Day materials are online, including:

-4 days: looking forward to the Application Server Day 2009

May 17, 2009

The first Java Aplication Server day is coming to Genoa this Thursday (May 21st, 2009).

The four speakers – Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine (Sun GlassFish), Paolo Ramasso (Oracle Fusion Middleware), Alessio Soldano (RedHat JBoss) and Alef Arendsen (Spring dm Server) – are warming up the presentations and the demos, ready to make this one of the most interesting, thought-provoking, fun event to be at this year. Four Java application servers discussed and debated in one big room with the community: yes, it’s real!!!

Talking about the community, if you’re in Genoa or can visit Genoa for at least one day (Genoa can easily be reached by train from northern and central Italy, as well as from other places through its international airport), please register on-line. Participation is free, but your registration can help us organize a few things in advance. Invite your friends, invite your colleagues. Help make this a great community event.

The Application Server Day will be held at the Faculty of Engineering, in the Albaro district of Genoa. A map and directions on how to reach the venue are published here.

So see you all on Thursday at 14:00!

Java Application Server day 2009!

April 25, 2009

Following the success of last year Java IDE Day, the entire JUG staff is happy to announce a new special community event: the Java Application Server Day 2009!

The last six months have seen big news on the application server front, including substantially new releases of most major app servers (both commercial and open source), and, last week, news about the Oracle-Sun merger. We hope it will be both interesting and exciting to hear about the technical innovations directly from the evangelists and members of the development teams of four well-known application servers: JBoss, Glassfish, Spring dm Server, Oracle/Weblogic.

Speakers will include Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine (Sun GlassFish), Paolo Ramasso (Oracle Fusion Middleware), Alessio Soldano (RedHat  JBoss) & Alef Arendsen (Spring dm Server), who will compare the most innovative features of theri respective server platforms.

The Application Server Day 2009 will take place
