Devoxx 2012

Tomorrow, Antwerp will host – for the 11th year in a row – the biggest European Java Developers conference : Devoxx.

This year I will celebrate my 10th Devoxx attendance !  And for the first time I will have the pleasure to host two talks.

On Monday at 18:05 (Room #9), during a “Tools in Action” session, my colleague Abdoul and myself will build, live in front of the audience, a mobile application allowing to take pictures and capture geo localisation information and to send these for publishing on a web site. This demo will be built with open-source frameworks like DoJo and Apache’s Cordova, using IBM’s Worklight development IDE.  The architecture for this demo is depicted here under.

On Wednesday at 16:40 (Room #6), during the Conference, my colleague Eric and myself will demonstrate how IBM Rational Team Concert can be used to manage the lifecycle of a mobile application development, from capturing requirements to tests execution, changes and bugs management etc …

The rest of the time, you will find me on IBM’s booth in the exposition ground floor.

For those not knowing what Devoxx ambiance is, check out this nice video. Devoxx is sold out (again) this year : 3400 attendees from 40 different countries.

JavaFX Client for JAX-RS Tutorial

Last week, during the Devoxx conference, Alexis (Java and GlassFish dude) and Antonio (book author and Paris JUG Leader) gave a Java EE 6 hands-on training session.

They based their labs and samples on the Java EE 6 Tutorial code sample project available on

I modestly contributed to Demo 11, JAX-RS and Jersey.  The demo already included several clients (web based, android,…) and we added a JavaFX application to the set.

You can get the source code from Kenai and experiment with it (this a NetBeans project that should compile just fine with NetBeans 6.9)

Have fun !
