Perhaps you’ve heard of the JCP (Java Community Process) before, but in case you don’t follow what is happening with Java standards, the JCP is the body that defines ALL Java standards. Here’s a few facts about the it:
- The JCP defined Java standards through Java Specification Requests (JSRs), which deliver a written specification, reference implementation and acceptance tests to validate other implementations
- JSRs are headed by the Specification Lead and discussed in an Expert Group (EG)
- Then, the JCP Executive Committee (JCP EC) approves the creation and release of JSRs as well as whether they can be bundled into Java EE, Java SE or Java ME distributions.
Now here’s the kicker – JCP membership is open and FREE to all individuals.

JavaOne 2012 was truly great. Better than any other conference for us this year. And last year. Here are 8 reasons why this JavaOne rocked, and what we did:
1. We gave three talks by renowned Java experts…
I was brainstorming in the shower the other day, and I thought “Eureka!” – I need to bootstrap and test my Java app on a dynamic cluster with 800 Tomcat servers right now! Then, breakfast.
Obviously, every now and then you need to build a dynamic cluster of 800 Tomcat machines and then run some tests. Oh, wait, you don’t? Well, lets say you do. Provisioning your machines on the cloud for testing is a great way to “exercise” your app and work on:
- Warming up: Bootstrap a clean slate, install the software, run your tests
- Checking your Processes: Smoke testing for deploying the app to production
- Ensuring success: Checking load handling before launching the application to real clientelle
- Leaving nothing behind: After you’ve got all green lights, shut it all down and watch it disappear
NB: here are some things we hope we don’t do now, or ever in the future, with your contact information:
- Send you stuff you don’t want, and didn’t ask for
- Contact you more often than you’d like
- Use your data in any unethical or naughty way (and if it happens, please tell us!)
- Use it to zombie-out on the brains of your children (joke!)
So if this is happening, it helps to tell us so we can correct it! You can write me directly at email@example.com.
When ZeroTurnaround asks you for your contact details, it’s not to ruin your life with spam, viruses or offers for cheap medication. We ask for your contact info in exchange for free software licenses, product registrations and research/report/tutorial downloads so that we can better understand what you’re looking for, and to keep away other stuff you aren’t interested in.
Why do you want my contact details?
I want to reveal a secret about how Marketing works at ZeroTurnaround: We have good intentions at heart. See, this is a picture of me trying to do a pull-up on the left. Do I look like a guy who might abuse your data? Thank you for not answering that.
My question for you: Is it appropriate to ask for your contact details in exchange for a free software license, product download, or an industry report? (tell us in the embedded survey below!)
No we don’t, but we do have a new look! We are more than pleased to announce the launch of our much improved website, blog and overall company look. While our old website was getting the job done, rest its soul (now residing in last version afterlife), we hope you will enjoy the new color scheme, videos, and most importantly, enhanced NAVIGATION…
GeekOut 2012 grew nearly 2x from the previous year, and this meant adding a second day to the event with two tracks to serve the 250+ Java fans that gathered in Tallinn, Estonia. We had 11 speakers on the roster, including Oleg Anastasyev (Odnoklassniki), Ed Burns (Oracle), Hans Dockter (Gradleware), Michael Hunger (Neo4j), Jevgeni Kabanov (ZeroTurnaround), Mike Keith (Oracle), Joonas Lehtinen (Vaadin), Matthew McCullough (GitHub), Kirk Pepperdine (Kodewerk), Ken Sipe (Trexin Consulting) and Jaroslav Tulach (Oracle).
Welcome to GeekOut 2012!

Although 5.0.1 was planned initially as a minor/bugfix release, we managed to put in a lot of nice features that missed the train for the JRebel 5.0 release in June. So what’s on the plate?Read more
When you are a Java startup company that makes only two products (the award-winning Java solutions JRebel and LiveRebel), you sometimes feel like giving a little back to the community. ZeroTurnaround has excellent engineers with 5 years of hacking experience in Java, and we can now see a great opportunity (and also the necessity, given Estonia’s diminutive size and Java developer resource pool) to provide some knowledge, tips and tricks to Java enthusiasts in a university course called “Java Fundamentals”.Read more
For most companies, a customer who does not openly complain about poor features or customer service can be considered a success. Indeed, when your toothpaste does its job correctly, do you write to Colgate congratulating them and wishing them well? No.Read more
