In the first part of this review (the JavaEE6 back-end) I tested a small application which is a JSON REST service to be used as back-end for a JavaFX front-end. My conclusion for now is that JavaEE6 has a lot of new features which makes it a lot easier to use Java EE without extra libraries like Spring, Seam or Resteasy. I was able to make a back-end application which was noticeable fast with a low overhead in bandwidth and CPU usage.
In a search for the current best technology platform I am building a small real-world application for personal use in different languages and frameworks. First up is Java EE 6 and JavaFX 1.3.
I think this review can be helpful for others as well. If you just want to see the implementation you can skip the functional and technical requirements. If you are interested in the application and want to help creating the new version; please send me a reply:-).
