- ‘Usability in APIs and Languages’ – presented by Stephen Colebourne, JSR-310 specification lead, Sun Java Champion and Project lead at Joda.org
As an industry we seem to be able to solve complex technical problems, yet we sometimes struggle to deliver high usability with the end result. This talk will explore API and programming language usability, and how we should demand usability from authors and from ourselves.
- Globals - The free database from InterSystems, presented by Iran Hutchinson, Java Product Manager, InterSystems
What makes a successful commercial database software company give away its core database technology for free? Better yet, why would this company pay you to build applications on this free to deploy product and contribute to its open source API? Simply put, InterSystems believe it is the best technology around, especially for NoSQL applications. Come and see the code, get the free product that powers thousands of applications today, and get the details on the new monthly development competition. Help us build a thriving developer community around this exciting new technology - Globals.
- ‘Introduction to BIRT 2.6’ – presented by Jason Weathersby, BIRT Evangelist at Actuate Corporation, member of the Eclipse Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) Project Management Committee (PMC).
This presentation introduces the Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project , a powerful reporting framework that is part of the open source Eclipse initiative. Using BIRT, Java developers can incorporate reports into their applications without the need for time-consuming custom code, or they can build on and extend BIRT to provide valuable reporting services for their applications and products.
This session details the components that make up the BIRT project and how to get started with the BIRT designer, to produce high quality interactive reports. This session will consist of a minimal PowerPoint and a series of live demonstrations that will illustrate how to get the most out of BIRT.
Java developers looking to include reporting in there Java/J2EE applications can learn about:
• BIRT Overview and Architecture
• BIRT Designer Features
• Charting Features
• Drill Through and Interactivity
• Grouping and Aggregating data
• Multiple Data sources and Joined Data Sets
• Importing Style Sheets
• Server-side scripting
