I had a chance to spend two weeks in China last month. Needless to say this was a very interesting trip. I spent time in Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. I was there with a group teaching about our products, talking standards, visiting customers, and going over SOA related concepts and technologies such as Federated Portals.
I have been on the road in the past few weeks - talking with people about Portal Federation and WSRP (Documentum/EMC conference in Montreal, Business Objects conference in Dallas, my brother's wedding in Houston - lots of techies there).
Now I am back in Boulder catching up on things.
Ok this is not a Java or a Web Services entry... I know, I am sorry.
The public draft of WSRP 1.0 Primer is now available for review and comments:
You have until October 2nd to provide feedback to the TC group:
In the past few months we have seen several names in the Java space moving to Google and I don't think they are going to be working on search technologies alone. Given some of the names, such as Joshua Block, Neal Gafter, Cedric Beust, and Adam Bosworth among others, I would guess that Google is doing some research or exploration into service platforms.
Finally... JSR 94 got to the final stage.
This was the first JSR I had a chance to participate and I can tell you that it was a lot of work.
Just got back from NY. It is always good to be back in the big city. The food was great...If you are ever in the city for a few days you should try Beppe.
