JavaOne

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...

Java's 10th birthday celebration from the JavaOne keynote. (click for other sizes)

UPDATE: 6/28/2005 This project was just awarded the Duke's Choice Award by James Gosling, Scott McNealy, and the Java technology leadership team. At JavaOne, java.net is hosting some interesting mini-talks in their pavillion booth. The NetBEAMS project (not to be confused with the IDE) places wired and wireless sensors throughout San Francisco Bay that report back temperature, pressure, salinity...

Neeraj and I put together a Wiki page with a List of TS and BOFs that are directly related to projects in the WS and XML community at Java.Net We meant to push this out over the weekend but things have been piling up, in the typical JavaOne fashion. Monday is almost over but hopefully this will still be useful for Tue-Thu.    - Enjoy! Tags: JavaOne

Day one has come to a close. Though there are about 14,000 15,000 people attending the event, it is still pretty easy to simply bump into old acquaintances. Even before entering the Moscone Center, while standing in the alumni line, Greg Wonderly spotted me and said hello. Greg is well known in the Jini community and an all-around good guy. While wandering around on the show floor I nearly ran...

For my fifth session of Day One, I attended TS-2670, otherwise known as Twelve Reasons to Use NetBeans. The presenters were Tim Cramer (Director of NetBeans engineering), Inyoung Cho (Java Technology evangelist), Tim Boudreau (NetBeans staff engineer and evangelist), and Charles Ditzel (from the Sun Partner Technology Office). Tim C. started the session by describing the momentum NetBeans has had...

The most I'd heard of groovy is what Dion said at the 2005 Server Side Java Symposium. There he said it was a bit backwards to have a JSR for a scripting language before it was more fully fleshed out. Something about a cart and a horse. Anyway, after atttending this talk I can see things seem to be progressing nicely, and I don't know if I agree with Dion's assesment, though I can see where he...

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......
