My goodness it's late. JavaOne will do that to you. I can't let a conference day pass without writing at least something of the day. Here's a testamonial to the power of having a large part of the Java community present at JavaOne. At Java Licensee Day I sat on a panel to be grilled by the licensees and Barry Coleman from ATG mentioned that payroll processing company ADP is using JSF for at...
You can see my trend line for blog entries is going down. No excuses. Here is a summary post of the rest of day two at JavaOne 2005. This was the most interesting day for me, with many Faces talks and meetings planned. The morning was packed. After the Amazon talk, I went straight to the Wicket talk, where I ran into Howard. Here are the quick notes from Wicket. Miko talks about meeting Jon...
Amazon notes Very similar to eBay's talk yesterday. You can join an amazon associate program and get money based on sales you send to Amazon. It would be interesting to compare the richness of the APIs at eBay and Amazon. 80% of their WS calls are REST, 20% SOAP. These two talks make it clear that Web Services have passed the tipping point for adoption. Good thing there is such good support...
John Gage mentions that all the badges are RFID tagged. Talked about some of the things that can be done with this data. Who went to the most sessions? What session had the most attendees? Talked about SeeBeyond acquisition, which just transacted this morning. SeeBeyond is an integration company. Competes with TIBCO. I think this buy does give Sun a competitive position in integration for...
Show how to use Ebay to make money for yourself. Ebay opportunity: more efficient way to buy/sell. Obvious value proposition you already know about. Emphasis on making money makes it feel a bit like an amway pitch, but in the end they did show some code and how to use their APIs. Ebay developers are a massive driver of innovation. selling apps category specific apps Motors, boating,...
The most I'd heard of groovy is what Dion said at the 2005 Server Side Java Symposium. There he said it was a bit backwards to have a JSR for a scripting language before it was more fully fleshed out. Something about a cart and a horse. Anyway, after atttending this talk I can see things seem to be progressing nicely, and I don't know if I agree with Dion's assesment, though I can see where he...
Live band, Magnetic Poetry, during the walk in stage. It was a great idea to have them play. Very slick opening video with hip looking actor talking about how great java is, 10 years, changing the face of the computer industry. Presonally, these hyper-slick videos are a bit offputting to me, but the point of what it was saying is true: java has done pretty well since its inception. I also...
Attending Java Licensee Day is one of many benefits of being a full Java Licensee. Attendees get an advance peak at the Roadmap for Java Technology and access to the people helping to create it. My personal role in this last point was to participate in the Ask the Experts panel along with Rajiv Mordani, Ken Drachnick, Roberto Chinicci, Eduardo Pellegri-Llopart, Bill Shannon, Paul Sterk, and one...
While planning out my JavaOne 2005 attendence schedule I thought it would be a good idea to highlight the sessions that are relevant to JavaServer Faces. Here's a day-by-day breakdown. There are 20 such sessions! Monday, 27 June 2005 JSF and Creator in John Loiacano's Keynote, 8:30am. I'm at the JSF presentation at the java.net booth in the JavaOne Pavillion, 2:30pm. I'm in the booth...
I'm pleased to report that we finally have annonced the terms of the Java Distribution License (JDL) as it applies to the Sun JavaServer Faces Reference Implementation, and to JavaServer Faces implementations at large. It is now possible to electronically accept the JavaServer Faces JDL and produce official, compliant implementations of JavaServer Faces technology. The JDL also covers fee-based...
