The Java EE 6 platform is developed as JSR 316 under the Java Community Process and is an extreme makeover from the previous versions.<br/><br/> Several new specifications such as Java Server Faces 2.0, Servlet 3.0, Java Persistence API 2.0, and Context and Dependency Injection 1.0 are included in the platform. This adds more power to the platform and yet make it more flexible so that it can be adopted to different flavors of an application. It breaks the "one size fits all" approach with Profiles and improves on the Java EE 5 developer productivity features. It enables extensibility by embracing open source libraries and frameworks such that they are treated as first class citizens of the platform. <br/><br/> All of this is implemented in GlassFish Open Source Edition that provides a light-weight (OSGi-based), modular, and extensible platform for your Web applications. <br/><br/> This session provides an overview of Java EE 6 and GlassFish. Using multiple simple-to-understand samples it explains the value proposition provided by Java EE 6 and demonstrates how powerful apps can be created by writing lesser code.
