JavaOne

"The multicore challenge" is the challenge to developers of software products to write code that effectively utilizes modern multi-core / multi-processor computers. Two years ago, I wondered if the multicore challenge was still relevant. In part, I was thinking about how applications were moving from the desktop into the cloud. So, if the apps people are running are running in a browser, does it...

When I first heard that Oracle planned to start having JavaOnes on continents other than North America, I thought that was an excellent idea. This coming Tuesday through Thursday, the second JavaOne Latin America will take place in São Paulo, Brazil. The "Quick Links" box on the JavaOne Latin America site interestingly has Java Users Group as the second item. Clicking that brings you to a page...

I was fortunate to be able to attend JavaOne this year. There I perceived a new energy, focus, and momentum within the Java community that hasn't been evident in many years. So, at JavaOne, I decided to write a series of blog posts describing what I was seeing. There's a lot to write about, and I'd like to give each element the coverage it deserves, so you can expect this to be a rather long...

My previous post (Is Java Really Losing Popularity Among Developers?) elicited a voluminous and varied response, particularly on reddit (489 comments as I write this), and also in the comments posted on the blog itself. In this post I'll touch on a few of the comments, talk a bit more about what TIOBE plots might actually mean, and return to JavaOne 2011 (which I think has great significance as...

The results of our recent poll that overlapped JavaOne 2011 indicate that news from JavaOne 2011 related to Java 8, JavaFX, and Java EE was considered most significant by the developers who chose to vote in the poll. A total of 50 votes were cast, with the following results: The most important news from JavaOne 2011 will be / was related to: 34% (17 votes) - Java 8 4% (2 votes) - Non-Java...

It's clear that I'm not the only one who considers JavaOne 2011 to have been momentous in many ways. If you weren't there (and, of course, that means more than 99.9% of Java developers), or if you were there and missed more than you saw (was anything else possible?), you can (re-)experience some of the key technical sessions by visiting the JavaOne 2011 section on Parleys.com. During the...

The very last thing JUG-AFRICA founder Max Bonbhel did at JavaOne 2011 was to spend a few moments with me chatting about Java User Groups in Africa and the unique problems they, and African developers in general, face. Despite the obstacles, growth of the Java community in Africa is surging. Check out the video: Immediately after that last scene, Max was literally running to where he had...

The end of JavaOne 2011 is approaching. Yes, officially only 2 days of a 4 day conference have been completed -- but it feels like most of the headline news has already broken. Then also, some of us have been here since late last week (the java.net Community Leads meeting was on Saturday, Oracle ACEs had events before that, etc.). Today is my last full day at JavaOne, I'll be printing my...

Tuesday morning at JavaOne, I spoke with London Java Community leader Martijn Verburg about the LJC's decision to seek a position on the JCP's Executive Committee, the JCP.next (JSR 348) effort, the outlook for JUGs and the JCP, JavaOne, Java, ... all this in under 3 minutes! Check out the Oracle Media Network for more JavaOne 2011 videos (click on the "Newest" tab). More Java One News...

If you regularly visit java.net's Java news tab, you'll be accustomed to seeing blog posts by Dustin Marx featured there. Dustin is here at JavaOne 2011, and he's putting together an excellent collection of what this year's JavaOne is all about (in its core aspects) on his blog, Inspired by Actual Events. As I write this, Dustin has already posted 13 JavaOne 2011 entries (several of which I've...

The blur phase of JavaOne 2011 has started for me. I quickly realized this morning how brief 30 minutes between sessions is, when during that time I want to check out the best JavaOne related blog posts on java.net and elsewhere, update the java.net site, and post some blogs of my own. It's simply not possible. That said, JavaOne 2011 thus far is very interesting, very good, in my opinion. I...

You may have noticed that our java.net home page suddenly looks different: the centerpiece is a long column of JavaOne-related blog posts. This is a java.net JavaOne tradition that dates back I don't know exactly how far -- but I have the feeling it was in place for at least several JavaOne's that preceded my first as java.net editor (2009). With JavaOne 2011 rapidly accelerating into full...

With JavaOne 2011 imminent, we have a new java.net poll that provides you the opportunity to predict what the most important news from JavaOne will be (if you vote beforehand), or voice your opinion on what the most important news was (if you vote after the conference ends). The poll options were selected with reference to the description of Monday morning's JavaOne Technical Keynote. So, what...

The JavaOne and Oracle Develop Registration page includes some basic information about blogger passes. Unlike recent years, blogger passes to JavaOne will not be availble through java.net. Instead, if you'd like a blogger pass, you'll need to follow the registration procedure listed on the page. The listed requirements for getting a blogger pass for JavaOne / Oracle Develop don't include the...

The java.net community will be busy through late Friday afternoon, on the final day of JavaOne 2009, with three more JavaOne technical sessions: 1:30 PM, Matt Warman et al. (jfrets project): PAN-5388: Making Music with the Javaâ„¢ Programming Language - Musicians and software developers are kindred spirits. Developing algorithms and implementing them seems to be quite similar to developing a...

I've compiled the following schedule of JavaOne technical sessions, BOFs, and ancillary events where members of the java.net community will be presenting during JavaOne week. This schedule does not include the java.net Community Corner events that will be taking place at the java.net booth in the JavaOne Pavillion. Here's the current java.net community's JavaOne week presentations schedule...

The Java.net Spotlight area in the right column of the front page is being used to highlight JavaOne related news as the conference proceeds. Here's what has been spotlighted thus far: Sid just published a schedule of OpenSSO events during JavaOne week: "Join us Sunday May 31st, for OpenSSO Community Day at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. It's our 'unconference' before the main conference...

I'd like to write a blog and/or post a schedule of presentations, panel sessions, and BOFs that will be given/led by members of the java.net community. If you're a member of the Java.net community (for example, you lead or participate in a java.net project or a java.net community) and you'll be giving a technical session, participating on a panel, or leading a BOF, leave a comment below, and I...

There is a definite increase in the number of people expressing, as Terrence Barr has, that JavaOne 2009 is "approaching too fast." I'm certainly feeling that way, finding myself starting to look at BART information on getting from San Francisco International Airport to my hotel, studying the Community Corner schedule and researching the people who will be speaking or providing one-on-one...

This is the first edition of a new column I'll be writing each weekend titled "java.net: the Week in Review." In the column, I'll present all of the previous week's Java Today news items, a selection of java.net blog posts, polls, and spotlights. I'll organize the presentation by categorizing the featured news items, so if, for example, your interest is JavaEE and GlassFish, you'll be...
