Pop the champagne! We just released JDOM 1.0.
Man this feels good. I'm gonna go out with some friends to party tonight, then heading to FOO Camp for the weekend. Ahh. A great moment in life.
I'm surprised how much fun I've had reading (and writing) the Java.net weblogs today. JavaOne always has five things going on at once, and people's blog entries let me experience vicariously some of the four things I didn't choose. The whole thing reminds me of those "Day in the Life" books. It's great fun to have a whole set of bloggers concentrating on the same event.
For the first technical session I tried to see Doug Lea talk about concurrency utilities. He's the guy behind the famed util.concurrent library and a good speaker to boot. But when I got there, the doors were shut with a sign "Session Full". Even when someone left they wouldn't let anyone new in. So I wandered by the JavaServer Faces talk.
InfoWorld just published an article on how Java.net and the JCP might interact, and my name appears in the first sentence! Boy when you see that you hold your breath and hope the reporter got things right. You never know what crazy things you might find attributed to you. Happily, Bob McMillan usually gets the facts right, and he did pretty well here.
