JavaOne is still going on for a few more hours, so a show wrap-up may be premature. But I have to leave early, so it's time to summarize my experience, at least.

I remember being at JavaOne in 1999 (I think) when I first heard the terms "J2SE", "J2EE", and "J2ME". I understood the reasoning for such a move, but at the same time I hoped they wouldn't go too far with the distinction.
