JavaOne

My favorite heroes of each JavaOne are the Duarte folks. The typical cycle for J1 speakers starts early in the year and there are multiple deadlines through that cycle, but the one deadline that can't be missed is the presentation itself! That means that just before that presentation we all go through the Room 140 - the speaker ready room - to be sure that the presentation looks good, and,...

My goodness it's late. JavaOne will do that to you. I can't let a conference day pass without writing at least something of the day. Here's a testamonial to the power of having a large part of the Java community present at JavaOne. At Java Licensee Day I sat on a panel to be grilled by the licensees and Barry Coleman from ATG mentioned that payroll processing company ADP is using JSF for at...

Java's 10th birthday rock and roll celebration... (click on the pictures for larger sizes) Alex Rodriguez, "Duce" paints a giant Java 10th Birthday Card. Have a cupcake.. See, Java IS cool. Keep bag away from duke.

I was sitting in the java.net booth waiting for the next presentation to begin when the person sitting in the next row turned around and gave me a look of recognition as if he knew me. I was quite certain I had never seen him before. "Hi", I said. "Still going...?", he asked. That was the title of my most recent blog on java.net and I finally understood where we had met before. He introduced...

Day three of JavaONE was a gas. Not because of the keynote, though. As I'm not connected with the mobile phone industry, I confess I spaced through the keynote and used the time to catch up on my mail and plan my day. Wireless access throughout the JavaONE grounds is a tremendous boon. Yes, it would drop me once in a while but for the most part I was able to stay connected and keep up with mail...

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...

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...
