JavaOne

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. TS-3396 EJB 3.0 Specification (Linda DeMichiel) Linda is JSR 220(EJB 3.0) spec lead and she covered EJB 3.0...

View 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 Tango Microsoft Web Services...

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. Here is another article published on ZDNet Japan covering Project Tango and how it 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 “gold” at the Friday morning keynote in which James Gosling called them onstage for the white-knuckle last go around the track. The contestants wrote hard real-time code to read the sensors on the track and set the track voltage, in order to try to get the car around...

At the Friday morning keynote, 5/19/06, James Gosling talked with Sun Distinguished Engineer Greg Bollella about Real-Time Specification for Java (RTSJ). “Greg was the original spec lead for JSR 1 where I was one of the worker bees,” remarked Gosling. The big news is that Sun Java Real-Time System 2.0 is in the pipeline and supports new platforms – in particular real-time garbage collection...

Brian Chess's JavaOne talk (TS-1660, "Twelve Javaâ„¢ Technology Security Traps and How to Avoid Them") was a great, fun, interactive presentation that you can play at home. View the slides and at each code sample, try to name the security risk, then move to the next slide to see the answer. This is relevant for all developers. Security is something we should adopt into our code from the...

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...

So, as I've mentioned too often, I'm on the Program Committee for JavaOne. One thing we'll do is have a Lessons Learned meeting, and I want to be ready - so I thought I'd throw out my ideas for what worked and what didn't, and ask for a little help in working on my list. Here's your chance to kvetch with me! First, what worked: I thought the talks pretty much rocked. Now, prehaps I'm a...

One of my lessons-learned from JavaOne is the importance of choosing the right data access. I try to preach using the right tool for the right job and didn't realize that in my mind I had made Hibernate the choice for all data access. Two talks by Cameron Purdy helped me expose my inner-hypocrisy. TS-1402,"Essential Lessons of Distributed Caching" Details | Slides TS-5397,"The Top 10 Ways to...

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...

On Tuesday, at the very end of the JavaOne 2006 Technical Keynote, we demonstrated Project Phobos for the first time in front of an external (i.e. non-Sun) audience. The reception was very warm, as confirmed by a number of great conversations we've since had with conference attendees. Project Phobos is investigating the use of scripting languages in the Java web tier. Currently, we are focused on...

Jan Stola, Tomas Pavek, and Scott Violet discussed the motivations behind the latest graphical user interface builder available in NetBeans. The NetBeans GUI Builder, once labeled Matisse, is available in NetBeans version 5 and later. Previous GUI builders forced you to understand layout managers, which are the underlying objects that control how and where GUI components are positioned within...

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 Bill Shannon and I used 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. Among the future directions were some of the initial ideas for Java SE 7 (Dolphin) and new language technologies including Visual Basic for the Java Platform (Project...

I'm afraid castle is closed for good. So, the advice below the line, below, was worthless ;-) I walked to an Algerian cafe two blocks lower at Leavevworth and Geary. Cafe Grain D'or. ------ Bad Advice Follows: For Barcelona vs Arsenal, to take place @ 11:45 today, a colleague recommends: Edinburgh Castle at 950 Geary Street -- that's about 10-15 minutes walk from the Moscone.

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...

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...
