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
I never thought it would happen, and although it hasn't yet, Sun's EVP of Software Rich Green announced that Sun would release the Java platform to the open source community.
Looking back at how well the new schedule system worked out, after a full day of use.
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...
Notes from Monday night's Alumni Fireside chat...
Un-live blogging the opening keynote
What the java.net booth has that most booths and sessions don't: sofas, mini-talks, and a power-strip.
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...
NetBeans Day is a big hit, drawing a standing room only crowd.
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 :-).
In case you missed it on my other blog, here's the low-down.
For those attending JavaOne next week, there are a couple of sessions related to Java Security that you may want to check out.
This year, they'll be doing things a bit differently for attending talks - no more getting shut out of a talk you're dying to go to... But it means you have to plan ahead.
Thinking about quotable quotes from Java conferences past and future
Schedule Builder is a new tool for planning your sessions at JavaOne.
No JavaOne for me this year, but all signs point to a coming out party for Java EE 5, the nascent efforts I recall very well back in SCA-14.
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:
JavaOne comes around again...in May this year. The track category "Cool Stuff" promises to be innovative and eye-opening.
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...
