JavaOne is over now, a week of strong networking and some news from the Java Universe and its business. I need to wait more one hour to my boarding time, so I guess it is a good moment to a draft of topics I can remember after the last night at the Chieftain:
Pervasive JavaFX: this was the technology of this JavaOne, it was quoted in almost all sessions I attended. A young technology (miles to...
