This year JavaOne finished and it left lots of information which will be useful for a long time. As I review it I arranged technical sessions related to EJB 3.0 and Java Persistence. Here I write brief introduction and summary of them. There are also links to those presentation files.
Sun and Microsoft on Project Tango at Sun
Developer Network Channel (SDN). SDN caught me and Kirill
at the Microsoft pod in the JavaOne 2006 pavilion
and talked to us about Project
Tango and how developers can have access to this content. If interested in
the content, you can view the video cast from 28:35 through 31:09.
Technorati: Javaone WSIT
Read a brief summary of my talk (TS-5540,
Making Javaâ„¢ Technology-Based/.NET Web Services Interoperability Real) at JavaOne
this year here
by an audience. The slides
were posted earlier.
Technorati: Javaone WSIT
Web Services Interoperability
I posted the list of sessions and labs as part of Project Tango in JavaOne
2006 earlier. It indeed got a lot of attention during
JavaOne this year (see further down). I posted a collection of articles talking
about Sun and Microsoft Web services interoperability effort earlier.

has fully embraced the keywords...
The three top contestants in the 2006 JavaOne Conference Slot Car Racing Programming Challenge got their last chance to win the â€œgoldâ€ at the Friday morning keynote in which James Gosling called them onstage for the white-knuckle last go around the track.
At the JavaOne Conference Friday morning keynote, 5/19/06, James Gosling talked with Sun Distinguished Engineer Greg Bollella about Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ).
versions of my J1 session (TS-5540,
Making Javaâ„¢ Technology-Based/.NET Web Services Interoperability Real) are now
available. The StarOffice version has speaker notes and animation as well.
Brian Chess's JavaOne talk (TS-1660, "Twelve Javaâ„¢ Technology Security Traps and How to Avoid Them") was a fun, interactive presentation that you can play at home.
It's the last day at JavaOne 2006. The Sun General Session just ended. I've still got a full day of technical sessions that I am looking forward to.
Here is brief overview:
Scott McNealy was in rare form in today's general session as he talked about his new post CEO life with a good dose of humor. And as we've all come to expect from Scott he had a top 10 list, this time "The 10 Best Things...
In a little while, we're going to have a meeting to discuss the next JavaOne. While I cringe at the thought, I want to be ready - help me with my list of things that worked and didn't.
One of my lessons-learned from JavaOne is the importance of choosing the right data access.
Grid computing is getting a fair amount of press these days. Some of you may be familiar with Sun Grid and the compute-server project on java.net.
In a technical session today, Van Simmons, Sean Merrit and James Gammill have contributed their own unique grid architecture and coining the term "Flash-Gridding" to describe it.
They claim that grid computing, in general, is too difficult. The idea...
At the JavaOne 2006 Conference we introduced Project Phobos, a lightweight, scripting-friendly, web application environment running on the Java platform.
The NetBeans GUI Builder, once labeled Matisse, is available in NetBeans version 5 and later.
I attended Microsoft JavaOne party
Wednesday night. It was great to meet their developer evangelists (Jas, Nima and
Woody to name a few). I specifically spent some time with Mohammed
Akif who is a member of Microsoft Architecture Editorial Board. He is an
ex-Sun employee and used to be a Senior Java architect and co-authored several
Java books before joining Microsoft. I recommend reading his...
Can you imagine a world in which everyone is wearing medical sensors? Where everyone is downloading 10 megs of medical data per day to some remote database. Where doctors can perform physicals without needing their patients to visit the office and researchers can spot medical trends such as flu outbreaks in real-time? Sound like science-fiction???
Well, of course, it is at the moment, but...
Here are the slides for the JavaOne 2006 Technical Keynote.
These cover the high-level roadmaps for Java SE and EE,
including Java SE 6 (Mustang), the Now and How of Java EE 5,
plus future directions. Please feel free to reuse them!

J1 this year has been interesting. On my way over to the conference I found out that my technical session talk had been changed from "alternate status" to a scheduled time. Unfortuneately the time was Friday afternoon at the same time as my flight out of San Fran. So they cancelled it, but a few hundred of you had already signed up for the talk. I suggested switching to any other tech slot or to a BOF. I ended up with a 9:30pm BOF-timed but still named "technical" section. At the current moment, I'm not sure if I should consider this a talk or not, but I'm pretty sure that you probably won't be there. Here is a summary of what was presented.
The pace has really picked up here at JavaOne. Streams of people going and coming from the rooms, the Pavillion is milling with crowds, but overall everything seems to be running smoothly.
Yesterday was interesting, starting off with the General Session, which hosted a live band, and lots of announcements. The main one was when Rick Green took the stage, and Johnnathon asked, "So when is Sun...
