This year, the JavaLand Conference

is taking place for the sixth time, from March 19 to 21 at the amusement park Phantasialand. The grand community reunion, on this occasion with amusement park panache, again offers the ideal environment for sharing knowledge and networking. Visitors can expect numerous lectures by top speakers, interactive community activities and a whole lot of fun!

And we’re right in the middle of it! Come to our booth 310 and learn more about us, who we are and what we do. Oh, and we’ll be having fun, too: help our little robot steer through our obstacle course as fast as you can. You don’t control the robot directly, however, but rather program it using components on an iPad. Once you have managed it, you’ll have the chance to win one of 3 robots.

But we’re not just there for fun. Indeed, we are also contributing to talks in the top-class program:

Web-APIs: Das ultimative Handbuch (Simon Skoczylas)

As a web developer, you get to use different Web APIs every day. Often these are the commonly known APIs, such as Document Object Model (DOM), DOM Event API, Fetch API or Geolocation API. This creates a kind of comfort zone that you rarely leave. At the same time, the Web provides many additional less or little known APIs. For example, do you already know Web Speech API, Web Bluetooth API, Server Timing API, Battery Status API or Credential Management API?

These and other APIs are part of the talk that aims to help web developers leave their comfort zone. Since the presentation covers a great deal of APIs, the audience can select at the beginning of the talk which APIs are presented in detail.

Was macht Java auf dem Client? (Hendrik Ebbers)

As in previous years, we would like to discuss with you innovations in client-side Java development. Having talked about the removal of JavaFX from the JDK in recent years and informing you about the discontinuation of Java WebStart last year, there will be many new points concerning client-side Java development in 2019.

Java WebStart ist tot - Wie geht es nun weiter? (Hendrik Ebbers)

With Java 11, Oracle has removed Java WebStart from their JDK/JRE. Although WebStart is certainly an outdated technology, it is still used by many companies and Java projects. This presentation shows different ways and approaches to maintain an existing WebStart project in the future or to successfully migrate to a new Java deployment technology. In addition to different distribution and deployment approaches, we will also look here at how we can build a native application directly from our Java client.

Panel: Zukunft Java

A panel discussion following the presentation “Zukunft Java”.

Participants: Wolfgang Weigend, Simon Ritter, Michael Page
Chaired by: Hendrik Ebbers

Dou you also think that we should get to know each other?
