B. JD Case Studies: A 20-minute case study presented by Oracle, customers, partners, developers, and/or user group members. We suggest allocating 5 minutes for a Q&A period within that timeframe.

  •   Presentation Summary*: For evaluation only; this is an additional description of your proposal to help the reviewers better understand your submission.
  •   Experience Level*: Identifies the knowledge level of the targeted attendee. General Tips
  •   Session titles should be descriptive of the content and use common keywords. Write an abstract that is easy to read and describes the value of the presentation. An example of a useful title is: Five techniques to improve your Java server logging. An example of an uninformative and vague title: Java GC and You.
