Tracks for Call for Papers

Check the tracks eligible for the call for papers below. Details on specific session content and how to plan your personal JavaOne learning experience is coming soon.

Core Java Platform
The Java platform is stronger than ever, with the Java language's continued growth and formidable position as the world's #1 development language. This success depends on relentless pursuit of innovation and tuning at the very core of the Java family of technologies. The Core Java Platform track covers material fundamental to all uses and variants of the Java platform, including topics ranging from the latest developments in Java Virtual Machines, deep technical explanations in areas such as security and networking, and enhancements that allow dynamic programming languages to drive Java platform adoption.

JavaFX and Rich User Experiences
The way in which users interact with technology has evolved dramatically in the last several years. It's no longer enough to think of an application's user interface as a thin layer of graphical presentation bolted on as an afterthought. Application designers must consider user experience in a much more holistic way, spanning multiple device types, media types, and situation types across time, leveraging consistency across them yet exploiting the unique potential of each one. JavaFX, one of the newest and most exciting Java technologies, is a response to–as well as a driver of the ever-expanding richness of user interfaces imagined by application designers and demanded by application users. This track covers the latest developments and practices for building rich, immersive, and powerful user experiences using JavaFX and other Java technologies across multiple hardware platforms and form factors.

Java EE, Web Services, and the Cloud
Whether you use only the seasoned features of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) or its cutting-edge additions, this track is for you. It combines up-to-date coverage of a wide variety of enterprise Java topics, from the mature areas of Web application development, persistence, security, and transactions to the more recent common practices of dependency injection and continuous integration. This track also addresses some of the forthcoming and compelling interests of the Java EE platform, such as modularity, enterprise caching, Web sockets, and internet identity, as well as the latest and greatest vision and practices related to Web services, SOAP, REST, JAX-WS, JAX-RS, cloud architectures and deployment, and many other service-related topics.

Java ME, Java Embedded, and Java Card
Mobile phones, smart cards, embedded environments, and intelligent devices are some of the most pervasive manifestations of Java technology in everyday life. Advances in Java technology continue to drive and support expanding application capabilities by providing an ideal platform for developing mobile, embedded, and M2M solutions targeting a wide range of businesses such as industrial automation, smart metering, healthcare, robotics, and telematics. This track is devoted to Java technology as the ultimate platform for mobile and embedded device computing.

Java Embedded for Business
For many years, computer scientists have imagined a world where most physical objects interact with each other and the people to which they are interconnected. But for the most part, this concept of "an internet of things" has been more dream than reality. From the enterprise business world to the consumer arena, smart grids/meters, industrial automation, home gateways, automotive telematics, and context-aware healthcare devices all help inform decisions that drive value for businesses and consumers. In this track, business leaders and decision-makers learn how to use Java embedded technologies to start realizing immediate value through a deeper, better understanding of how their products are built, shipped, deployed, and consumed. Sessions in this track demonstrate how Java embedded technologies and solutions offer compelling business value and a focused path forward to business efficiency and agility. Attendees will gain a better understanding how Java embedded technology delivers a secure, optimized environment ideal for driving their businesses forward.
