Petstore using Java EE 6 ? Almost!

Posted by: on Jun 12, 2012 | No Comments

Antonio Goncalves, a Java Champion, JUG leader, and a well-known author, has started building a Petstore-like application using Java EE 6. The complete end-to-end sample application will build a eCommerce website and follows the Java EE 6 design principles of simple and easy-to-use to its core. Its using several technologies from the platform such as JPA 2.0, CDI 1.0, Bean Validation 1.0, EJB Lite 3.1, JSF 2.0, and JAX-RS 1.1.

The two goals of the project are:

• use Java EE 6 and just Java EE 6 : no external framework or dependency
• make it simple : no complex business algorithm

The application works with GlassFish and JBoss today and there are plans to add support for TomEE.

Download the source code from github.com/agoncal/agoncal-application-petstore-ee6. And feel free to fork if you want to use a fancy toolkit as the front-end or show some nicer back-end integration.
