Abstract: The Java EE 7 platform focuses on Productivity and HTML5.

JMS 2 is undergoing a complete overhaul to align with improvements in the Java language. Long awaited Batch Processing API and Concurrency are now added to build applications using capabilities of the platform itself. Together these APIs allow you to be more productive by simplifying enterprise development. WebSocket attempts to solve the issues and limitations of HTTP for real-time communication. A new API is added to build WebSocket driven applications. Processing JSON structures is inherent in any HTML5 applications and a new API to parse and generate JSON is being added to the platform. JavaServer Faces will add support for creating reusable flows and HTML5-friendly markup. There are several other improvements in this latest version of the platform. The Java EE 7 platform was recently released. This code-driven talk will provide an introduction to the platform.
