  • Develop Java SE applications using the latest in Java SE technology
  • Incorporate Java major features introduced in versions 17, 16, and 15 into your code

About the Author

Josh Juneau has been developing software and enterprise applications since the early days of Java EE. Application and database development have been his focus since the start of his career. He became an Oracle database administrator and adopted the PL/SQL language for performing administrative tasks and developing applications for the Oracle database. In an effort to build more complex solutions, he began to incorporate Java into his PL/SQL applications and later developed standalone and web applications with Java. Josh wrote his early Java web applications utilizing JDBC and servlets or JSP to work with backend databases. Later, he began to incorporate frameworks into his enterprise solutions, such as Java EE and JBoss Seam. Today, he primarily develops enterprise web solutions utilizing Java EE and other technologies. He also includes the use of alternative languages, such as Jython and Groovy, for some of his projects. Over the years, Josh has dabbled in many different programming languages, including alternative languages for the JVM, in particular. In 2006, Josh began devoting time to the Jython Project as editor and publisher of the Jython Monthly newsletter. In late 2008, he began a podcast dedicated to the Jython programming language. Josh was the lead author for The Definitive Guide to Jython, Oracle PL/SQL Recipes, and Java 7 Recipes, and a solo author of Java EE 7 Recipes and Introducing Java EE 7, which were all published by Apress. He works as an application developer and system analyst at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and he also writes technical articles for Oracle and OTN. He was a member of the JSR 372 and JSR 378 expert groups, and is an active member of the Java Community, helping to lead the Chicago Java User Group’s Adopt-a-JSR effort. When not coding or writing, Josh enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife and five children, especially swimming, fishing, playing ball, and watching movies.

Luciano Manelli earned a PhD in computer science from the IT department, University of Bari-Aldo Moro. His PhD focused on grid computing and formal methods, and he published the results in international publications. Luciano obtained several certificates in the IT sector, and, in 2014, began working for the Port Network Authority of the Ionian Sea–Port of Taranto, after working for 13 years for InfoCamere SCpA. He has worked mainly in the design, analysis, and development of large software systems; research and development; testing; and production with roles of increasing responsibility in several areas over the years. Luciano has developed a great capability to make decisions in a technical and business context and is mainly interested in project management and business process management. In his current position, he deals with port community systems and software innovation. Additionally, he has written several IT books and is a contract professor at the Polytechnic of Bari (foundations of computer science), and at the University of Bari-Aldo Moro (programming for web, computer science, and computer lab).
