So, one of the big news from JavaOne is the death of JavaFX Script. Very bad news. A few people think it's good since Oracle will better focus resources, but it sounds as they are reasoning in the past. Over are times of the Java steward being in lack of resources, as it happened in the last Sun years. In the past, Sun dismissed a project mostly when they couldn't afford it; now Oracle dismisses...
I was preparing a short post about that, but I've run into an InfoWorld comparison of the fourth major IDEs, so I can just quote it (emphasis is mine): When Oracle acquired Sun earlier this year, there was considerable concern in the Java community regarding the fate of NetBeans. ... NetBeans' fate appeared so uncertain, we postponed this roundup until we could get a definitive word about the...
Well, this morning I delivered my talk and, as usual, now I'm more relaxed. Things tried really to go wrong as my power plug adapter (that I've been using until this morning in the hotel) refused to work (hey, it's just a mechanical thing! No computer inside!) and the battery of my laptop wasn't charged enough to live until the end of the talk. Big thanks to Carlos Sanchez, that lent me a Mac...
One day after the splash, I must say that the "distributed venue" approach for JavaOne is showing a number of pitfalls; the most important one being the time you waste moving back and forth. Consider that walking from the Hilton or the Parc 55 to Moscone (e.g. for following a keynote) takes about 20 minutes. If you have to move twice back and forth, that's more than one hour spent walking. In...
Today is the big day (well, actually the introductory keynotes have been held yesterday evening) and I was eager to splash into the atmosphere of the new JavaOne. First, there is a JavaOne. Many owls predicted that Oracle meant the death of JavaOne. It's clearly wrong, at least for the first year, even though the conference is co-located with the Oracle World. Now, the first impression that you...
Ok, sure, now everybody is focused on the upcoming JavaOne... but after the week in San Francisco, the usual carousel of conferences will go on. blueBill Mobile for Android is getting close to be feature-complete with the addition of fact sheets, including images. It sports a nice RDF-based model implemented upon OpenSesame and I'll be discussing its architecture at a new european event, Soft...
Well, "Tidalwave projects" might sound pretentious, given that the corporate is just me... but it sounds better than "Fabrizio's projects" ;-) I suppose 4/5 people could ask me about their state at J1 and to save time I'm recapping the information here. First, my talk at J1. It's "Efficient Development of Large NetBeans Platform Applications with Maven", code S314363, scheduled on Wed 22, 11:30,...
