JavaOne

Am I misremembering, or previous conferences didn't have BOFs overlapping with After Dark activities? In any case, attendence to our BOF was very sparse (although those that came were quite engaged) and attendance was equally weak for the other BOFs I checked. And I don't blame attendees to want to take a break in the evening of Day 3... I would consider not scheduling any BOFs during After...

Just thought I'd post this actual picture (taken by my pal Duncan Davidson) of the biggest butterfly in the world. If you see one of these babies flittering around JavaOne, you'd better get out your .NET.

Just looking at some of the off-branded tschatskes from JavaOne. Some of them are pretty clever and show a distinct sense of humor. For instance: Opens up to reveal... Gosh I hope nobody gets fired over this one. Shows a human side to Sun Marketing...:-) Here are a couple of other fun posts on the same topic...I was amused to see a blog on the same topic by David Delabassee's on blogs.sun....

Monday First, a couple of quick hits - EJB 3.0 support seems to clocking along - TopLink will support EJB 3.0 (sept/oct final?). Other vendors seem to be moving in the same direction. Based on the EJB 3.0 talks so far, it looks like some of the concerns from last year (e.g. annotations aren't the end-all-be-all, splitting the spec up to be more manageable) are now folded in. Still feels like a...

In addition to working on Project GlassFish, as a manager at Sun I get assigned all kinds of fun projects. For the first time ever this year, I was involved in planning the Web and XML track at JavaOne. Wow, that was fun - we had so many good submissions this year, it was hard to choose, but fun too. One part wasn't fun - scheduling. Not the part you're probably thinking of - the timing of the...

I knew MTOM support was already implemented in recent JAXB 2.0 builds but I had missed that the full integration with JAX-WS 2.0 was also working. I just talked with Rajiv and he tells me that last night Simon and Rags got it working between the Indigo Beta RC and the JAX-WS 2.0 EA2 released last week. I hope I won't jinx by talking about it, but Simon and Rags will demo it during their session...

JavaOne Online (mentorware.net) has posted this announcement: AnnouncementThe 2005 JavaOne conference multimedia technical sessions, will be availablefor free to Sun Developer Network (SDN) members.

I'm renewing my passport. The process is pretty easy: you send your old passport, along with a couple of new pictures and a completed form (plus $60) to some place in Pennsylvania and, at least in theory, you get back a new one. Filling out the form was the sticky point with me. I got to the point where it said hair color and I began to write brown out of habit. I then glanced at the pictures...

I must confess that the tendency for vendors to consider their conference sponsorship a down-payment on holding an audience hostage has finally taken its toll. I just had to get away... Picture taken by Duncan Davidson and hosted here Lucky for me, my friends at O'Reilly (yes, I know I'm a groupie) are holding the Where 2.0 conference today and tomorrow, just a few blocks away from JavaOne. Yes...

I admit it: I really like Jini. I have had a strong Jini bias since first learning about it, which was, to my reckoning, right before it was officially released in 1999. The first record I have that mentions Jini is dated mid-January of that year – a few weeks before the actual release of the first official download of the Jini protocols. I remember, when I first understood what it was about...

"Every person here is special." -- John Gage, Chief Researcher of the Science Office, Sun Micrososystems "Java Loves You!" -- oversized walking coffee mug outside convention center Aside from the nice warm fuzzy feelings from these and other statements made during the first day at JavaOne, Sun also announced that they have made up with IBM. To prove it, Jonathan Schwartz showed a video...

There is another side of Java One that alot of people don't get to see. It's the behind the scenes stuff that goes into the production of the keynotes, presentations, and the overall event. In particular there was a person that we were all supposed to meet and see, named Alissa Anderegg. I got to meet her and work with her and here's what you missed. There was supposed to be a Jeopardy-style...

You can see my trend line for blog entries is going down. No excuses. Here is a summary post of the rest of day two at JavaOne 2005. This was the most interesting day for me, with many Faces talks and meetings planned. The morning was packed. After the Amazon talk, I went straight to the Wicket talk, where I ran into Howard. Here are the quick notes from Wicket. Miko talks about meeting Jon...

JavaOne talks are full of numbers... 1 billion JavaCards, 550 worldwide Java user groups, 912 members of the JCP, 28 J2EE compliant app servers, 45,000 Java applications for cell phones, 78% of handsets shipping in 2005 are Java-enablied, and on and on. So I thought I'd offer up a few other random metrics that might mean something. Or nothing. Non-technical stats: * Number of people waiting in...

I really enjoyed the morning keynote today. Scott McNealy described "the digital divide" and how Sun is helping to bridge the gap. He talked about all the efforts to apply Java technology around world (both from within and outside of Sun) to improve quality of life in such areas as education and health care. By providing great opportunities for people outside the company to participate and...

(click on any of these for larger sizes) Behold... Java (tm). The larger rooms have styrofoam 3D logos, most of them lit from two sides with two different colors. Our programming language deserves such splendor! Feeding the 5,000! The waiter (see larger sizes) is somehow totally unimpressed with Java. Jason Hunter demonstrates why XQuery is better than an enormous dead tree. Did you know...

Bruno Souza (pictured) and Eitan Suez introduce "Juggy" at the java.net booth on Monday at JavaOne 2005. So, no titillating thoughts allowed, welcome Juggy! For more info: https://jugs.dev.java.net The Brazilian Java users group has over 7,000 members! Go Brasil!

How many of you have downloaded some code from the web, and been unable to use it because of 1) no meaningful comments in the code and 2) no other documentation such as useful examples? One of my senior project student teams struggled to use a poorly-documented AI engine downloaded from the web and finally gave up and wrote their own. Not exactly the kind of re-use of which Java code should be...

Sitting in Scott McNealy's keynote next to two Sun lawyers, Cliff Allen and Matt Marquis. Usually you don't get to see lawyers at JavaOne, but today is special for Cliff and Matt, because they worked like dogs for the SeeBeyond acquisition, which was announced today. Makes me think about how many people are behind each minute at a big event like this. Cliff and Matt's moment of fame lasted...

In Monday afternoon's General Session, BEA chief technology officer Mark Carges announced two new initiatives from BEA. Carges outlined BEA's strategy to develop "the industry's first J2EE application environment that is designed to fully support all major open source frameworks". The new tools designed by BEA will allow developers to use their favorite open source framework - such as Apache...
