JavaOne

It started with a bang: loud rock music that set the mood. It ended with a reception where there was ample laughing, talking, and general celebrating. With over 550 attendees, NetBeans Day 2005 was a huge success! The program started with Hideya Kawahara talking about and demoing Project Looking Glass. You might be wondering how Looking Glass is connected to NetBeans. Well, a lot of the code...

My large frame does not like airline seats. At about 6 foot 8, my head towers over the back of the seat making the typical Iowa-to-Nevada nap most people enjoy on a cross-country flight like this impossible for me. Still, the hours of uninterrupted time (no phones, no email, no IM) means I can have a chance to catch up on what's new in the Java world. So, before getting on the airplane I thought...

We started at 8AM with a breakfast cooked on the spot - thanks to Flip! All day we have been hearing from java.net community leaders and organizers about what works (and what doesn't) in their various communities and projects. I've learned alot but it's like 'sipping from a firehose'. For example, there are some great Eclipse tutorials in the Java tools incubator. There is a new Java user group...

While planning out my JavaOne 2005 attendence schedule I thought it would be a good idea to highlight the sessions that are relevant to JavaServer Faces. Here's a day-by-day breakdown. There are 20 such sessions! Monday, 27 June 2005 JSF and Creator in John Loiacano's Keynote, 8:30am. I'm at the JSF presentation at the java.net booth in the JavaOne Pavillion, 2:30pm. I'm in the booth...

Tomorrow marks the start of the tenth JavaOne. Having attended every single JavaOne, it's a little disorienting (disturbing?) to think that it's now a decade old. It looks like the advice for this period includes such pearls of wisdom as "the 10-year-old is very social," and "this may be a relatively calm period," and that the ten-year-old "is concerned about rules." At first blush, the question...

On Tuesday June 28 the JDK Community will be hosting a Community Meet and Greet at 6:00 at the Argent Hotel in San Francisco. Over pizza and a drink, chat with community leaders, researchers, and contributors about how you can get involved in fixing bugs, contributing features, and making the Java Platform better than ever. For more information about the event see the JDK Community Meet and...

We are living interesting times. We recently saw NetBeans rise to quickly catch up with Eclipse. And as we'll all learn on Sunday, during NetBeans Day, NetBeans even outmatches Eclipse in some area. I have been using Project Matisse for a few days and for the first time ever I actually want to use a GUI builder. Exciting tool, exciting day! The real fun will begin on Monday at the Moscone Center...

Details of the track is at http://java.sun.com/javaone/sf/interoperability.jsp with a kickoff session featuring high profile speakers from both Sun and Microsoft as featured in Graham's blog. http://weblogs.java.net/blog/kgh/archive/2005/06/ibm_microsoft_a_1.html The track is aimed to discuss mostly current solutions with some insights into future. Will be great to hear from developers about...

JavaOne is Jun 27 - 30. Wow, that's next week and just few more hours before the show begins. I'll let John Gage keep track of the exact number of hours and provide interesting statistics to wake up the crowd at 8:30am in the morning. A quick preview of the conference is available here. Tracks have been reorganized to better align with developer needs. For instance, Tools is an altogether...

Arun Gupta's Blog a few days back referenced joint Sun/Microsoft sessions at JavaOne. Clearly, interoperability between Java and .NET is of some interest to developers of all persuasions. But as a veteran of the first J2EE vs. .NET Smackdown in Tulsa (April, 2002), I must admit that the thought of an entire track at JavaOne, fully supported by both Sun and the Redmond Giant, is sometimes a...

More details about Microsoft participation in JavaOne 2005 are now available. There is a full track dedicated to "Interoperability (Java and .NET)". To view the list of sessions, just select the track name. Currently there are 6 sessions and 2 BoFs in this track and The ServerSide post talks about some of them. I'm a co-speaker with Sameer Tyagi on BOF 9911: Practical Interoperability Between...

Here is what Scott McNealy said in a announcement on new identity specifications with Microsoft yesterday ... -- quote -- McNealy noted that Microsoft will now be a sponsor of Sun's JavaOne conference this year. ``Who would have thought that Microsoft would be a sponsor of our JavaOne conference?'' he said. -- quote -- Check out the complete article in 5/14's Mercury News. Here is a quote from...

As I (and many others) have mentioned earlier, the JavaOne call for papers is open. But beware of the dog, I mean the submit button - this year the system has changed and once you click "Submit - Finalize" your submission is final. Although this seems obvious for a "newbie" submitter, it is not for people that have submitted proposals in the previous years, as the old system allowed you to edit...

As Daniel already pointed out, the J1CFP was really late this year - by this time in previous years the submissions should have been already sent. Looks like Sun has an excuse this time though: the submission system has changed and it has now a better looking layout (although it still have some flaws, like automatically creating your username as the pre-@ part of your email). I'm not sure if the...

The title of this blog entry was dreamed up independently and before I read Dion's blog entry "The Network Is The Conference". I agree completely with Dion's entry, yet add that it really is bigger than simply the JavaOne conference. In fact, had we all gotten together in the same time-space without JavaOne going on, many of us might not have even noticed a difference. I am, however, very...

The last technical session I attended was about the role of Java in the Mars Exploration Rover mission. Java played a big part in the processing and display of images sent back to earth by Rover's cameras and sensors. One picture was shown of an object sitting in the middle of a Martian crater that looked suspiciously like a bunny rabbit. For some time the scientists puzzled over what it could it...

At a previous job, we developed a Jini-based system to discover and expose whichever of our services were present on a customer's network. This led to a large Jini federation within the company's network, which led to problems as we hopped firewalls to remote points on the WAN. Complicating the matter was the network admins' all-too-typical Stalinist network policies, preferring to lock down...

Today I attended a very interesting presentation by Kevin MacDonald and Larry Mitchell on the use of Jini Network Technology in RFID applications. Goods are tagged and scanned as they move through the supply chain. Often many scans are performed on the same object, resulting in a very high volume of traffic. Kevin and Larry have found that Jini scales well to meet this challenge. This has been a...

Brian Murphy gave an excellent presentation today on the latest and greatest advances added in the Jini 2 Starter Kit. One of the topics was about security features. There are many assumptions that developers of distributed applications make when first starting out. Peter Deutsch has identified 7 of these fatal assumptions in his now famous Eight Fallacies of Distributed Computing (James Gosling...
