If you're thinking about attending the JSF Summit this December, now is the time to act.
We're less than two months away from the 2nd annual JSF Summit conference, co-sponsored by JSFCentral and the No Fluff Just Stuff Symposiums. The conference will take place December 1st-4th in warm, sunny Orlando, FL.
On September 1st, I'll be hosting a one day online seminar about JavaServer Faces 2.0. The seminar will consist of lectures but will also have labs.
The seminar is geared towards people who are already familiar with JSF and want to get details on what's in the new release.
First, I want to say I'm extremely excited about JSF 2.0, and I think it's a major leap forward for the framework.
That being said, there's one thing that's been bugging me for a while: no built-in support for conversation scope.
In case you hadn't heard, Apache Shale is moving to the Apache Attic. What is the Apache Attic? It's a new project, started last year. It's where other projects go to die.
So, the big news today is that Oracle is buying Sun. This is definitely the biggest thing to happen to Java since it's original release (not to mention the rest of Sun's portfolio). Overall, I believe Java is in pretty good hands. Oracle has bet their entire non-database business on Java.
If you're about to start a JSF project, or feel like you need a better grounding in the fundamentals of JSF, now is the time.
The TSS Java Symposium will be held once again in fun-loving Las Vegas at the Caesars Palace. This year, there are four excellent tracks: SOA, Architecture, Languages, Tools & Techniques, and Frameworks.
I'm speaking at two new conferences this year -- EclipseWorld and ApacheCon. Well, I suppose these conferences aren't new -- just new to me :-). I'll be presenting about Spring and JSF at both conferences, and Scripting with JSF at EclipseWorld.
EclipseWorld takes place this week, from October 28-30 in Reston, VA.
