This is a secondSun ‘s Java Technical Evangelist I meet, and once again it ‘s an extremely knowledgeable, passionate and very pleasant person.
Yesterday, Rima Patel from Sun has visited Princeton JUG and delivered a smashing hit presentation on EJB 3.0 and Java Persistence API. After about two hours of heavy duty technical talk I had to stop her – we were running out of time.
We have some really strong Java developers, and they have bombarded Rima with tons of not so trivial questions – she did not have problems answering them.
I ‘m sure, Sun Microsystems knows some secret that allows them to attract such talented people, technologists and speakers as Rima.
I did not read her last book Mastering EJB 3.0 (available for free download ), but after listening this presentation, I can tell you – go and get it, you can ‘t go wrong. Besides, I can confirm that Sun did a really good job with EJB 3.0 and Java persistence API and I recommend you to stick with them as opposed to trying to figure out which of the 50 available open source frameworks to use.
My big thanks to Aaron Houston from Sun, the program coordinator of Java User Groups and other Java projects for help in putting this presentation together.
Rima has delivered one of the best Java presentations of the year. And I ‘ve seen a lot, trust me on that.
