Hot off the presses!

JAX Magazine December – featuring DataFX, TomEE and some Scala goodness

Chris Mayer

The final issue of the year has arrived! Consider it an early Christmas present.

It’s the end of a long year for the Java developer community, but a prosperous one.

There were highs (the rise of JVM languages) and lows (delays of important Java moves, albeit rightly)

Hopefully, your own developing year was a prosperous one too – no matter which language you were coding in. We at JAX Magazine reflect back on the year that was in our annual review of the hottest topics that shook the core of the developer world.

With the days to Christmas counting down (or the move to Git if you’re an Eclipse member), now is the perfect time to sit back, relax and flick through one of our three wise tutorials for this month:

  • Jessica Kerr brings forth Scala concepts that you can use in your regular Java world. Once you do, you’ll never go back.
  • Jonathan Gallimore gives us the gift of TomEE and how to get started with it.
  • Johan Vos introduces us to DataFX, the new JavaFX project making it easier to integrate data sources with the RIA technology

We also catch up with London’s Basho team to talk about their NoSQL solution Riak and why it’s an alternative you ought to consider.

With your interest suitably piqued, grab your early Christmas gift now and download the latest JAX Magazine as a PDF, on the App Store or on Google Play.

Happy Holidays!
