    BEA WebLogic Workshop is an integrated development framework that empowers all developers - not just J2EE experts - to rapidly create, test, and deploy enterprise-class applications on the BEA WebLogic Platform. XMLBeans is a brand-new technology that makes it incredibly easy to access and manipulate XML-based data in Java. Come join us for a technical discussion and demo of XMLBeans, as well as a preview of the innovative WebLogic Workshop to learn how developers can efficiently build any application incorporating XML, such as Web services!

    *There will be a special presentation by Patrick Linskey from SolarMetrics focusing on leveraging the benefits of Java Data Objects in a WebLogic managed environment.

    XMLBeans is a breakthrough technology from BEA Systems that makes it incredibly easy for developers to access and manipulate XML-based data in Java. For the first time, developers can improve upon traditional XML API and marshalling approaches to achieve real benefits in productivity, flexibility, and robustness. XMLBeans is based on XML Schema, and incorporates other state-of-the-art technology such as XQuery, to dramatically simplify working with XML in Java. Come see why you may want to never use DOM or SAX ever again!

    BEA WebLogic Workshop provides a unified development platform that enables all developers to easily build and integrate enterprise applications. WebLogic Workshop provides a visual development environment, simplified programming model, and powerful runtime framework that makes J2EE easy by abstracting much of the API-level complexity away from the user. This approach helps empower all developers to build comprehensive, enterprise-class applications while leading to 10x productivity benefits for the entire IT organization.

    Java Data Objects
    Earlier this year, the Java Data Objects (JDO) specification was approved through the JCP in a landslide vote 14-0. The Java Data Objects specification provides a standard way for persisting objects and is showing a great deal of promise by increasing application portability, reducing development cycle time, and improving code quality. Applications written with JDO can be ported seamlessly across any data store without any recompilation or changes at the source level. Developers using JDO are seeing 20-40% decrease in coding effort. Java Data Objects was designed to work well with J2EE application servers like WebLogic and there are specific design patterns on how to use JDO with managed environments.
