Building an end-to-end application using Java EE 6 and NetBeans
The Java EE 6 platform allows you to write enterprise Java applications using much lesser code from its earlier versions. It breaks the “one size fits all” approach with Profiles and extensively improves on the Java EE 5 developer productivity features. Several specifications like CDI, JSF 2, EJB 3.1, JAX-RS, JPA 2, Servlets 3, and Bean Validation make the platform more powerful. It also enables extensibility by embracing open source libraries and frameworks such that they are treated as first class citizens of the platform. NetBeans, Eclipse, and IntelliJ provide extensive tooling for Java EE 6. This hands-on lab builds a complete end-to-end application using all different technologies of Java EE 6 with NetBeans. You'll learn the tips and tricks to be more effective in your development and deployment cycles. And you'll also learn how to monitor your Java EE 6 applications more effectively. A quick preview of Eclipse and IntelliJ tooling will also be shown.
