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
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
Miko talks about meeting Jon...
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
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.

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
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!

JSF and Creator in John Loiacano's Keynote, 8:30am.
I'm at the JSF presentation at the java.net booth in the JavaOne

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
