October: Java Tidbits

Malcolm Lett on Velai Threads

Malcolm will tell us about Velai Threads for Java, an open source framework that removes the need for boilerplate when creating multi-threaded code. Malcolm will explain why it's probably the easiest to use framework for implementation of "tasks" - even easier than Java's standard Future and Executor API.

Bruce Chapman on Java 7 diagnostics

Bruce discusses a patch for JDK7 to make stack trace line numbers more accurate for nested method invocations, such as fluent APIs and builder pattern. You might spot some code using what could be the most fluent swing layout manager on the planet.

Simon van der Sluis on Spring Data

A brief introduction to Mongo DB. Simon will explain the key concepts that you need to understand in order work with a document store as opposed to a relational DB. He will also show a little of the Spring-Data project and how easy it makes accessing Mongo DB, plus the differences that those who are used to Hibernate can expect.

Speaker: Malcolm Lett

Malcolm completed his MSc at Waikato University in Machine Vision in 2006, but he left that all behind so that he could earn a living in the IT industry. He is now an independent contractor providing development services in the J2EE space. In his spare time he likes dreaming up solutions like an old fashioned hacker.

Speaker: Bruce Chapman

Bruce Chapman has been developing in Java since 1998, predominantly building telecommunication systems. Bruce was a member of the JSR 269 (annotation processing) expert group, and currently serves on JSR 334 (Coin language changes) expert group. His interest is primarily in the SE space but has also worked on ME and EE projects.

Speaker: Simon van der Sluis

Simon has been developing web and DB java applications for the last 10 years or so, the last 5 five years at Energy Intellect. Before that he had various roles at a company that designed Digital Microwave Radios. Outside of being a nerd I'm a keen mountain biker.
