JBoss World kicked off earlier this evening (Monday, June 12) with a cocktail reception at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.
Version 5.0 of the NetBeans IDE has great support for version 8 of the
Sun Java System Application Server (SJS AS). But what if you are using version 7
of SJS AS? The IDE can still do plenty for you, including debugging. For the
test shown below, I used the 2004Q2UR4 release of SJS AS 7.1.
The BOF went well. There were about 300 people who showed up, which is pretty good
considering that the
After Dark party was going on.
The idea behind this presentation
is that when you want to debug a memory leak there are two techniques you can use:
walking the heap and instrumentation.
Closing Day Keynote
This was the Scott McNealy and James Gosling show. And I think even people
who hate Sun (and there are people who feel that way) would agree that it
was pretty entertaining. A full recap is here.
Scott made jokes about how his life has
improved now that he is no longer the CEO.
I slept late and skipped the IBM keynote presentation. I wanted to go, but
I had to get some rest. My BOF was scheduled for 8:30 that evening and
I didn't want to be yawning as I was doing it. As it turns out, the "IBM
Keynote" was really an "Eclipse keynote." More details
This will be quick.
The opening keynote was from Oracle. Thomas Kurian, along with several of his employees who did demos. All in all reasonably impressive. But I could not help but notice that the first demo was done with Eclipse and the subsequent demos were done with JDeveloper. The first demo involved creating entities from a database for a Java EE 5 application.
I try stick to serious stuff in this blog. Things that I think
can be helpful to folks who are doing software development,
especially if they are using the NetBeans IDE or building on top
of the NetBeans Platform.
