    Main Talk - Pete Muir - The unified programming model of Java EE 6


    With the introduction of Contextual Dependency Injection and Managed Beans into the Java EE 6 platform, a Java EE developer now has a full complement of facilities to write a Java EE application. But when should CDI be used, and when should introduce EJBs? How can you integrate CDI and EJB into your application? In this session we will walk through a Java EE 6 application build around CDI, and show how we can unobtrusively add EJB services as we need them.


    Pete Muir is a team member for Infinispan (an extremely scalable, highly available data grid platform) and leading the CDI 1.1 spec. Previously Pete was project lead for Seam and Weld (the reference implementation of JSR-299: Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java EE) and represented JBoss on the JSF 2.0 Expert Group. He is a co-founder of Arquillian, a test harness for Java application servers. Pete is currently employed by Red Hat; before working for Red Hat, Pete used and contributed to Seam whilst working for a UK based staffing agency as IT Development Manager.


    Pete has spoken at conferences such as Devoxx, JAX, JBoss World, JSFDays and JavaBlend as well as numerous JUGs. Pete blogs at
