Taking a little break from the conference to recharge, I took a walk this morning on the Embarcadero (down by the Bay), and lo and behold -- ran across "Red's Java House". After breathing, living, and sleeping everything Java for 3 days -- I thought it was humorous, and took a picture of it: I continued along, and ran into the "Java House"... Java is everywhere! ;-) (Looked like a cool...
I attended the session TS-8434: Ajax Push (a.k.a. Comet) with Java Business Integration (JBI) this afternoon. Here's a report... The room was very packed and there was a long line of people (including me) waiting in the 'standby line' to get in. Overall the talk was pretty good. I thought the speaker did a good job laying things out and explaining them. The "Demo" he did was *very* difficult...
In what has to be the most photographed item at JavaOne this year.. there is a Blackbox inside the JavaOne Pavilion at the Moscone Center. Project Blackbox is a virtualized datacenter available in a shipping container, and it's presence here is part of a Worldwide tour. It's certainly a sight to see. They're giving tours of the inside... but you'll have to wade through the people taking...

Project Caroline is a hosting platform designed to support SaaS providers in the development and delivery of dynamically scalable Internet-based services. The key idea around the platform is to present a pool of distributed compute, storage, and...
John Gage (as tradition dictates) did his usual great job opening the conference, and handed off to Rich Green to run the show. Rich had executives from Ericsson, NASDAQ, Sony, etc join him on stage for announcements and tales on how they're using Java. Some notes from the announcements: * NetBeans active users are up 92% NetBeans 6.0 preview is out: includes dynamic scripting with Java,...
I'm really looking forward to the opening keynote tomorrow, and getting this year's conference started. It's been great already running into many familiar faces (some of which you only see once a year at JavaOne) around the Moscone Center and San Francisco. Tuesday's schedule is packed with a lot of cool potential talks. Tough choices have to be made on which ones you're going to go to... here...
In or around San Francisco this evening? Interested in distributed computing, Jini, or just having a pint? ;-) In what seems to be turning into an 'annual' gathering at the Thirsty Bear Brewing Company... we'll be having an informal Meetup to kick off JavaOne week. The Jini Community has undergone a lot of change in the last year plus, and there are interesting times ahead. JavaSpaces...
