6:00-7:00: 55 New Features in Java 7
This talk is on 55 new features in Java 7 you (probably) didn't hear about in an ignite format of one per minute. No stopping, no going back....Questions, sure but only if time remains (otherwise save for later).
7:00-7:30: Food, Soda and Networking
We are grateful to TekSystems for their continued sponsorship of the Food and Soda!
7:30-9:00: Introduction to JavaFX 2.0
JavaFX is the next step in the evolution of Java as a rich client platform and is designed to provide a lightweight, hardware-accelerated Java UI platform for enterprise client applications. The latest release, JavaFX 2.0, represents a significant shift from previous releases. Developers can now create JavaFX applications completely in the Java programming language with a fresh new set of API libraries. There are a number of new features being introduced in JavaFX 2.0 such as Java Swing integration, web content integration, a hardware accelerated graphics pipeline and new UI controls library.
