JavaEE 7 has been officially released and the Java Spotlight Podcast has been supporting this major release by featuring almost every API change, both major and minor, for the last 11 months. There are fifteen Java Spotlight Podcast feature interviews with the JCP specification leads from Oracle, Red Hat, and IBM in a relaxed question and answer format.
Java EE 7, the standard in community-driven enterprise software, is now available.
Introduced in Java EE 6, CDI is clearly a key API to standardize dependency injection in enterprise Java. A lot of the work related to CDI in Java EE now involves treating CDI as an effective mechanism for unifying the Java EE component model and aligning others specs around it to make for a more cohesive platform.
Robust facilities for management and monitoring is one of the most significant ways GlassFish shines as compared to most open source Java EE application servers. Indeed as a former independent consultant, I have personally seen multiple cases where customers chose GlassFish over other options for this very reason. Folks in operations are usually particularly pleasantly surprised to learn that an open source application server could be so friendly to them (although clearly application servers like WebLogic shine even brighter in this area).
The Java API for WebSocket (JSR 356) is one of the key parts of Java EE 7. It allows Java developers to write Java HTML5/WebSocket applications with a simple, fluent, high-level API, both on the client and the server-side. With the official Java EE 7 launch looming there's already a flurry of great articles on topics like JSR 356.
