JavaOne

The Age of Participation. That's was the focus of the Jonathan Schwartz keynote this morning. The Age of Participation ... presumably not named for the book by the same name, published in 1995. Is it a coincidence that the title of a decade old book emerged as the theme for the 10 year anniversary of Java? Hmmmm. Okay. So it's a new age. I didn't know. I guess I was supposed to be...

It's the first full day of the JavaOne Conference. Yesterday, I attended and helped out at NetBeans Day. It was a full house, with standing room only for many of the sessions. I'll be uploading photos from the event soon. I also attended Jonathan Schwart's General Session and am watching Graham Hamilton's, Bill Shannon's, and Mark Hapner's Java Platform Update, Roadmaps, and Big Directions...

Look under "Current Promotions" here: Sun Ultra 20 In the keynote at JavaOne this morning, Sun announced they will offer a Sun Ultra 20 Workstation for only $29.95 / month (3 year agreement) with a 90 day return if you don't like it. At the end of the 3 years, you keep the machine. The offer includes Solaris 10, updates, and the Java develoment tools and support. In a recent blog entry I was...

The general session kicking off the conference has finished prompting a seemingly endless stream of attendees flowing into the bag lunch area, each wearing the conference-issued and ubiquitous Java-branded backpack. It seems as though I'm one of the rebels opting to carry my Brenthaven backpack that was specially designed to safely carry my 17" PowerBook. I'm a creature of habit and there is...

JavaOne is underway, with a lenghty Monday morning general session laying out the future of the Java SE and Java EE platforms. I took dutiful notes, for use in a show recap that will appear on ONJava Wednesday night. When it was over, my battery had about a 21% charge. That's when it hit me: there are no power stips in the public areas Last year's JavaOne was generous with the access to power...

Live band, Magnetic Poetry, during the walk in stage. It was a great idea to have them play. Very slick opening video with hip looking actor talking about how great java is, 10 years, changing the face of the computer industry. Presonally, these hyper-slick videos are a bit offputting to me, but the point of what it was saying is true: java has done pretty well since its inception. I also...

As I was leaving Sun a few months ago, I said there were still lots of good Sun people who were working to promote more open source. Today's release of J2EE reference implementation under CDDL is a tribute to the ongoing persistence of J2EE Director of Engineering, Jim Driscoll. A couple of weeks ago I got a call in Bangkok from Jim, who was calling (me as OSI representative) to talk about Sun'...

Okay, already there have been some really funny moments in Jonathan's keynote. In a minute I'll write up the F.O.S.S. bit. But first I must give a nod to the IBM lovefest. Jonathan just played a video where an IBM VP said how much IBM loves Java, even after 10 years. And in conclusion Jonathan said, "So, if you see an IBMer around JavaONE, go ahead and give them a hug"...and then (here's the...

One of the hardest parts of my job at Sun is keeping secrets. Especially when folks start critiquing you. It is quite exciting though, once the secret's out. At JavaOne this morning, Sun's Jonathan Schwartz announced that Sun was Open Sourcing our App Server PE, under the project GlassFish. I'm the manager of that effort, and I'd like to tell you a little about it. First: yes, it's really...

Sun Microsystems has just relased the new Sun Ultra 20 Workstation, a powerful Opteron workstation you can see in action at JavaOne in the Pavilion. We used such a station to run a demo yesterday during NetBeans Day and trust me, this workstation is really powerful. We had some trouble finding the appropriate driver in Solaris 10 for our USB mouse but once we got it up and running, wow. Java...

I was privileged this morning to be the Sun executive doing the morning news call for the world's press at 7:15am here in San Francisco, and thus I had the pleasure of being the one to announce that Sun's implementation of a Java Application Server, Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9.0, is now open source. Totally delighted to see it happen.

Now understand, 2 years ago I wrote a blog about sitting in the front row from the first JavaONE that had blogs (thanks to the launch of java.net :-) ). This year however I'm just one of the regular folks, albiet an Alumni (thanks, Alvina!). So, of course ran into other alum-chums of mine in the morning keynote line...Ken Arnold and Emily Suter. Lookie, there's James! There's Simon Phipps......

It seems, after all, that Glass Fish was much much more than it looked like. Sun indeed released Sun App Server under the CDDL. We now have a new major JEE server available under an Open Source license. We Java developers are blessed, for we got an incredible choice for every kind of tool. Oh but wait, why did I write JEE and not J2EE? Typo? Laziness? None of this, the Java brand now drops the 2...

I generally tend to wake early on travel days with the nagging thought that I need to repack my bags, even though I pretty well packed everything the night before. Yesterday morning was no exception. My alarm was set for 6:30, but it didn't get the chance to go off. Habitually, I unpacked my suitcase, surveyed everything I'd accomplished Saturday night, and repacked again from scratch, and in...

C|Net had a story the other day that spurred a thought I'd not had in a while: where is the Java chip? I had hoped to see some sessions on such a notion in the JavaONE sessions list but no such luck. Here's the teaser clip from that C|Net story: Sources familiar with the company's plans said BEA will announce at the JavaOne trade show that it's working on a version of JRockit--its virtual...

So we begin again. Another JavaOne. The place has certainly calmed down. Which is to be expected. The first JavaOne was at the rush of the .com boom. Everything was new, everyone was doing business with everyone else, new ideas, new possibilities. Every corner hid a new frisson. You felt you could just live off the vibes. By now it's much more staid. After all, Java isn't this amazing...

It's the day before the really big show - JavaOne 2005. I can feel the energy in the air, everyone is excited to see what this year's conference will bring. This year, I was invited to join the java.net Community Leaders in their first ever mind meld, aka the Community Leaders weekend. I spent the weekend at the Sun Microsystems office, listening to lots of really great ideas and meeting the...

The NetBeans Day took place at The Argent Hotel in San Francisco, just a few blocks away from the Moscone center. To make a long story short, it was a great day and it was a huge success. During the opening keynote, we've seen Rick Ross talk about the NetBeans community and the Project Looking Glass team demo us some cool features of their project. The most interesting part of the keynote was the...

Attending Java Licensee Day is one of many benefits of being a full Java Licensee. Attendees get an advance peak at the Roadmap for Java Technology and access to the people helping to create it. My personal role in this last point was to participate in the Ask the Experts panel along with Rajiv Mordani, Ken Drachnick, Roberto Chinicci, Eduardo Pellegri-Llopart, Bill Shannon, Paul Sterk, and one...
