A very good presentation full of lots of little demos. Clearly shows that developers have a variety of choices for development tools and utilities on the OS X platform. The turnout was great; Esplanade 304 room was practically full. So, kudos for Apple and for their support of Java, and to the speaker for the great presentation. I've been running OS X on a TiBook for a little over six...
TS-2312 introduces the idea of combining jsp/jstl with xslt transformations to produce dynamic apps that target different markup languages, such as wml, html (why didn't they mention xul? i find it a shame that so far most people have blissfully ignored xul, a very powerful markup language for describing user interfaces..). so this Model 2X is the idea of pipelining processes (similar to...
i'm sitting and listening to the TS-1560 technical session on the ws-i basic profile. we're looking at a diagram of a sample application: consumers pulling goods from a retailer shelf, in turn triggering the retailer to pull inventory items from a warehouse. inventory levels reaching a minimum threshold then signal manufacturers to increase production of a specific item to replenish...
While awaiting the keynote on Wednesday morning, looking around me I noticed only a few yards away James Gosling having a conversation with a few friends, Tim O'Reilly standing maybe 2-3 yards away from him holding a separate discussion.

javaone to me has become more than attending a marathon of sessions from dusk to dawn. it's a forum for meeting with one's peer face to face, for discussions and exchange of information. i was pleasantly surprised to find out that finding someone among the crowd this year is not as difficult as it used to be. i'd say the size of the conference (though still quite large) is definitely more...
Java Server Faces was highlighted in one of the keynote demos Monday morning. i had the feeling the technical session on JSF would be crowded. i didn't realize it would be full. is this a testament to the fact that web-based development is still very popular today? i ran into a friend (Keiron McKammon) on my way to hall E134. JavaOne this year feels a little more personal. So, about JSF.. i...
apologies for the late start. imho java.net is a great idea whose time has come. i'm excited to be a part of the java.net effort and to have been invited to blog alongside friends and acquaintances whom i greatly admire. in a nutshell: java.net reflects the words of tim o'reilly in this morning's keynote speech: it is an effort to bring in the voices and opinions of folks outside of sun. the...
