On October 21st, the CT JUG lead by Ryan Cuprak helds its first ever Java Conference. The conference was a very good success and I think met an important need for the large number of Java developers in the greater Connecticut area.
I gave my Java EE 6 preview talk, as well as my brand new talk about integrating EJB 3 and Spring 2.5. Both talks were very well received and the EJB 3/Spring 2.5 integration talk generated a lot of lively discussion. Since the talk, a number of people asked for the source code for the very hand-on talk. It is downloadable from the CT JUG website here.
There were a number of other excellent talks given at the conference. Doug Clark from Oracle spoke on Coherence support for their open source JPA implementations (TopLink, EclipseLink) and Rossen Stoyanchev from SpringSource talked about Spring 2.5 as well as 3.0. JUG leader Ryan Cuprak himself gave a Seam talk to a full-house crowd.
