JavaOne

(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...

A clue for the folks who run this conference: When I run into someone I've met at last year's JavaOne, what's the first thing I want from the conference badge? Let me give you a hint: it isn't to see whether they have the same X-Ray of a cell phone that every other attendee has. This may come as a surprise, but trust me on this. I want to know their freakin' name. I'm particularly bad at...

The JWSDP community at Java.Net is building the production-quality WS and XML stack for Project GlassFish. This Java.Net community is also the main mechanism to increase the usefulness of this stack for the developer community at large. Kohsuke, Kirill and I are hosting a BOF (9646) on the community tomorrow, Wednesday, at 7:30pm on Moscone Hall E 133. We only have 50 minutes, so I will be...

Tuesday's keynote was hosted by Scott McNealy. I was fortunate enough to be able to work at Sun for over 3 years in the Jini group prior to getting a call from my friends at Verocel and moving there. I always enjoyed Scott's town meetings in the Burlington (Massachusetts) campus. His easy and irreverent style works for me. A couple of things stood out at this general session. First as the...

It 's been a couple of years since I've felt this kind of excitement at JavaOne. Wow what a great response to the announcement the Sun is open sourcing it's application server. Jim Driscoll, Amy Roh and I presented at the GlassFish BOF Monday evening to a standing room only crowd. Here are some highlights of that presentation. GlassFish is Sun's application server under the CDDL license (...

Amazon notes Very similar to eBay's talk yesterday. You can join an amazon associate program and get money based on sales you send to Amazon. It would be interesting to compare the richness of the APIs at eBay and Amazon. 80% of their WS calls are REST, 20% SOAP. These two talks make it clear that Web Services have passed the tipping point for adoption. Good thing there is such good support...

Despite a last minute change of time, and a change of room, we packed the room to discuss Project GlassFish last night... I presented a brief overview of our project, along with Carla Mott and Amy Roh. We intend to make our slides available from the GlassFish site after the conference. After the presentation, we had about a 30 minutes for discussion. And what a discussion - the attendees...

John Gage mentions that all the badges are RFID tagged. Talked about some of the things that can be done with this data. Who went to the most sessions? What session had the most attendees? Talked about SeeBeyond acquisition, which just transacted this morning. SeeBeyond is an integration company. Competes with TIBCO. I think this buy does give Sun a competitive position in integration for...

Yesterday I reported that there seemed to be more attendees this year ... which does still seem to be the case today. But I'm hedging now, because there was no official announcement (at least none that I heard) regarding attendance, which is rather unusual for a JavaOne, in my experience. Usually some announcement is made in terms of attendance. Not so this year. Interesting ... The...

The CDDL License has been talked about quite a bit since Sun submitted it to the OSI (the independant body that validates Open Source licenses). At it's heart, it's basicly just the Mozilla Public license (in use for things like Firefox), with some bugfixes. For a really good description of the process Sun used in coming up with the CDDL for OpenSolaris, check out Claire Giordano's Blog on CDDL...

174 Technical Sessions 158 Birds-Of-Feather 44 Hands-on Labs 8000-10000 people in the room 2000 in the overflow room 250,000 on the web Moscone Center, Jun 27th, 2005, 9:00am As always, John Gage (Sun's Chief Researcher and Science Office Director) started out with statistics and always a pleasure to hear him. Well, the last one is mine :) Here is a front-page article about the various...

Tuesday will be another day full of presentations at JavaOne'05, but I want to highlight two that are based on projects in our Java WS and XML Community. A full list of all the TS and BOFs related to our community is listed here First TS-3477; at 1:30pm, in Moscone Center/Hall E 134, Kohsuke, Doug and Rajiv will talk about the new iStack implementation that supports JAX-WS 2.0 and JAXB 2.0....

On behalf of a friend: When you leave a BOF early, can you please close the door quietly? It seems basic courtesy to those left behind. As a counter-courtesy, maybe speakers at BOFs where there is no amplification could repeat questions? Next: Which fork do you use to skewer an ignorant speaker?

The old optimism is still here in San Francisco. Sure we've heard it all before: the huge HUGE "opportunity" in mobile, the "renewed commitments" with other big players like IBM, and "the really interesting things", as Gosling calls them, that Sun's customers are doing with Java... but still, we can't help ourselves from suspending disbelief and getting swept away once again by the enthusiasm....

Always a lot of great information at the keynote. Lot's of talk about Sun's many new and (in some cases) improved tools. I must admit, I was drooling over the Sun Ultra 20 Workstation for only 29.95 a month (nobody said when the payments would end). Didn't manage to get a piece of the Java's birthday cake but it looked good. The march of the computer languages never stops. It appears that there...
