Apache TomEE is the Java EE 6 Web Profile certified version of Apache Tomcat and combines the simplicity of Tomcat with the power of Java EE. In this JAXConf 2013 presentation David Blevins starts off by introducing TomEE and shows how Tomcat applications leveraging Java EE technologies can become simpler and lighter with a Java EE 6 certified solution built right on Tomcat. David then focuses on showcasing some of the details, including latest advancements, testing techniques like Arquillian, clustering features and production considerations.

Following on from yesterday’s tutorial, Jonathan Gallimore details how to test your TomEE application with Arquillian
The latest framework release is all about education, easing developers into the world of JBoss and Java EE 6 technologies
The world of Arquillian gets another new component – this time linking up for Spring Framework testing
Its our opinion that Testing is Development; were not doing our job as programmers if we cannot ensure that our code is working as advertised. To that end, CDI has been a tremendous step forward for Java EE as a simplified POJO-based component model. Of course, CDI beans become such only within the context of a CDI Container, and that infers both starting a server and deploying into it. Until now, that work has been the responsibility of the developer; with the introduction of the Arquillian testing framework, these concerns can safely be put aside.
Two fresh new projects helping each other out – the Arquillian team demonstrate the JRebel extension to massively reduces redeploys.
The cutting edge JBoss testing platform gets its final release, signalling its intentions for the future.
The latest issue of Java Tech Journal is now available! This month is all about CDI.
JBoss have been busy. Public betas available for EAP 6, Tools and Developer Studio 5
The JBoss test platform has had a little green droid expansion. More details within.
Google App Engine (GAE) is among the most popular cloud application platforms today, offering decent service at a low price point or even for free. Unfortunately, however, its Java environment is also fairly restrictive. This session presents several tips and tricks on how to use top Java EE specs CDI, JPA, JSF2, and Bean Validation, for instance within GAEs restrictive sandbox while still benefi ting from the highly scalable environment it provides and maintaining portability to other Java EE containers. It demonstrates how CDI can be used to abstract from GAEs services and how state-of-the-art testing frameworks such as ShrinkWrap and Arquillian can be made to work with a GAE application.
