JavaOne

We, at Sun Microsystems, have been working with Microsoft for past several months on achieving interoperability between Java EE and .NET technologies. Web Services Interoperability Technology (WSIT, a.k.a Project Tango) is Sun's Web services interoperability portal and provides all information on that effort. Earlier yesterday, we gave a demonstration of our work so far in JavaOne 2006 keynote....

I never thought it would happen. After all, I dismissed the idea of an open source Java platform once already. However, I've heard the message twice in the same number of days, once yesterday at NetBeans Day and again this morning in the JavaOne General Session. I didn't believe it yesterday. After all, it's possible I just misunderstood. However, after this morning I can't deny it any longer....

In a previous post, I talked about how the people who run the conference were planning on having a new way to schedule and attend talks at JavaOne this year. Well, first day is mostly done, and I think we've gotten a pretty good idea of how it's working. My evaluation is "could be better". I've yet to see the first 3 slides of ANY talk that I've attended - and I was registered for all...

It is only natural that from year to year different themes are emphasized at JavaOne. This year the slogan seems to be "For Everything that Matters". In the Sun General Session this morning Jonathan Schwartz and others placed an emphasis on "things that matter". Things that are important to Sun and the Java Community which it supports; and things that are important to the Java Community that...

I attended the JavaOne Alumni "Fireside Chat" last night. Even though I've been an alumni for many years, this was the first time I've been able to make this and found it very interesting. Here are some rough notes I took to give you a little flavor for the discussion. JavaOne Alumni Fireside Chat, Monday May 15th, 5:30-7:00pm James Gosling, Hal Stern, Graham Hamilton, Jeff Jackson, Larry...

Nice music. No network. Blog as if there was one... Every year they don't start this on time, and every year I show up on time anyway. Every year they do something interesting with the music. Sometimes more interesting than music, but this year definitely not. World fusion (isn't all music these days?). Ah, the lights dim, time (one assumes) to see the promo intro. Yup, promo intro....

I spent part of yesterday afternoon at the java.net booth, helping set up for podcasting the mini-talks, which start today at 11. The booth arrangement is really nice this year: on one side, we have the kiosks for signage, literature, and computers, which allow community leads and project owners to show their stuff and meet with people. At the opposite side is the screen, speakers and podium for...

Happy NetBeans Day. Yesterday was Mother's day. I sent my mother a card. Today is NetBeans Day. I could not find any NetBeans Day cards anywhere. I think Hallmark might want to look into this. The first session hosted by Jonathan Schwartz at Net Beans Day was filled to capacity so much so that I could not get in. There were two rooms available and it would have been nice (and more comfortable...

Fast Facts Approximately 800 people in attendance Over 10 million NetBeans downloads Over 30,000 NetBeans CDs shipped worldwide More than 100 partners support NetBeans with plugins, active development, etc. JBoss and AMD are new members Subversion support Arriving in San Francisco early Sunday morning, I knew it wouldn't be long until I was neck deep in Java technology. I relaxed Sunday,...

It's Net Bean Day Eve. JavaOne is upon us once more and I am looking forward to a week of learning, connecting with my fellow engineers, and hopefully being amazed on occasion. On Saturday I attended the java.net Community Leaders Meeting. Once a year just before JavaOne the leaders of various communities on java.net get together to discuss various ways in which to make java.net a better place...

If you're going to be at JavaOne and you have a copy of my book JavaServer Faces in Action, stop by the DigitalGuru bookstore on Thursday at 11:00AM. I'll be signing copies of the book and I'll be happy to chat about the book, JSF, and development in general. And, if you don't have a copy, don't worry -- you can buy one at the book store :-).

As I mentioned yesterday on my other blog,I have just confirmed with the folks at the Thirsty Bear that we can have our annual JavaOne Bloggers Gathering there. So... Event: JavaOne Bloggers' Social Venue Thirsty Bear Brewing Company Date & Time 5:30pm-7pm, Tuesday, May 16 2006 Registration: Please register!

JavaOne is right around the corner, next week to be precise. If you are going, I encourage you to check out one (or both) of the technical sessions/BOFs related to Java Security: TS-1238: Secure Coding Antipatterns: Avoiding Vulnerabilities. This session covers some common programming mistakes that can lead to security issues. More important, it shows you how to avoid them. We combed through...

One nice thing about being around this stuff forever: You end up on all the interesting committees. I'm on the JavaOne Program Committee, which helps decide the content at JavaOne. Every year at JavaOne, we have the same problems - some talks are in big rooms, and you can hear the crickets chirp. Others are in medium (600 capacity) rooms, and there are people sitting on the floor - or worse,...

Sitting here in the middle of the Mohave (I work remotely from Las Vegas) I'm starting to feel the beginning of a heat swell that will ultimately climb in June into the 110s. That's one of the reasons I'm looking forward to arriving at JavaOne and enjoying San Francisco's supercool breezes (O.K., it's damn cold). Another thing I'm looking forward to is picking up interesting quotes from some of...

In the past, you could create an online schedule for JavaOne and attend those planned sessions...or not. You had the flexibility to attend what you planned or to go with the flow. And you were never completely turned away from a session. Sure, you might not get to see the session in the original room. Sometimes if you showed up a little late and the session was full, some nice person would direct...

No JavaOne for me this year, and this will be first time in my professional career where I won't be wandering the caverns of Moscone and once again furitlessly searching for the Esplanade, Room 301 and the speaker ready room. I guess it means one less bean bag will be occupied. All signs seem to be pointing to a coming out party for Java EE 5, the nascent efforts of which, I recall very well back...

JavaOne is 6 weeks away and I can see the momentum building up within Sun for the slideware, demoware, machines etc. As it gets closer, everything starts revolving around JavaOne. I've been involved with Project Tango since it's inception and here is the list of related technical sessions and BoFs that will be presented: Session # Title Speakers Location TS - 5540 Making Javaâ„¢...

JavaOne comes around again...in May this year. The track category "Cool Stuff" promises to be innovative and eye-opening. You can check out the planned Cool Stuff sessions. Personally, I'm fascinated by what's going on in Java ME (or J2ME). So, the robotics sessions get high marks from me: Javaâ„¢ Technology in an Intelligent Swarm of Heterogeneous Lego Robots Hacking Vex Robotics by Adding a...

Today's the last day to get the early bird alumni discount. So, I went over to http://java.sun.com/javaone/sf/registration.jsp to register. Problem 1: The price for a pass with the alumni discount is $1495. However, when you go through the registration process, it quotes you $1595 and asks for your credit card info. I called up the hotline, and the attendent told me that you put your CC info...
