After a three year hiatus I am once again in attendance at Java One. I am having the same problem this year that I had in years past. So many technologies, so little time. For a computer geek like myself, however, it's a great problem to have. I have decided at least to attend all the Jini technical sessions and BOFs. I used to work in the Jini group. It's great to catch up on what's new and...

There' s a free event for the Java Communities on Tuesday night too - 6-9pm in the Argent hotel, Metro 3 room. I gather there will be free food and drink to be consumed in the company of community representatives from each of the Java communities (, JXTA, Jini and the JCP who I gather are the hosts) and that everyone is welcome.

Got a Java blog? Come to the joint Java blogging community informal meet-up next Monday. Details at the Atlassian site, please blog that you're coming & trackback to

FYI, I have accepted a new position at Nokia running developer technical services and consultation for the Americas. More details are available from my personal blog. I intend to continue blogging wireless Java related tidbits on as time permits, including resuming my monthly wireless highlights entries in the not too distant future. And if you're going to be at JavaOne, please consider...

I've been going through the published slides from the JavaOne presentations, and I've already extracted the majority of the performance tips (here and here ). But there are other sessions that are interesting too, and one of those is on programming puzzlers. This is a really fun session, but if you (like me) didn't get to attend you don't have to miss out. The slides at

Monday Immediately after arriving to my hotel, I was wisked away to the top-secret war room where many of us set up the first pieces of Javapedia. In the evening I had dinner with the jGuru folks, including Tom Burns, John Mitchell, Alex Chaffee, and Ian Mcfarland (along with some others, please forgive me for leaving you out - let me know who I missed). My friends Jonathan Simon...

This is a long blog (apologies, etc.) It turns out to be very difficult to blog at JavaOne. For me the main barrier is the lack of easy wireless acess in the General Session room, which I would like to see fixed for next year (I'm probably not alone). Wonder if its even possible to provide public wireless on a sufficient scale for the 15,000 or so people who watch the keynotes live? Well, the...

Java One proves technology can be funny. The Scott McNealy keynote is always a highlight of Java One. This year, at Java One 2003, it was that stole the show, and a lot of laughs. Following the McNealy keynote, Jonathan Schwartz, EVP of Software for Sun Microsystems, took the stage and brought up several partners for demos. I believe we will be talking about the

JavaOne is still going on for a few more hours, so a show wrap-up may be premature. But I have to leave early, so it's time to summarize my experience, at least. This was my sixth JavaOne. I wasn't quite sure what to expect this year; I was afraid the conference would be a lot smaller, and that the energy might be low. I'm glad to say it was great. I heard from two sources that the...

After a fun week in San Francisco for JavaOne, there's a group of us, including fellow bloggers Jason Hunter, Glenn Vanderburg, and Mike Clark are heading on to the next Java conference on the schedule: The Wisconsin Java Software Symposium, part of the No Fluff Just Stuff conference series. It'll be interesting to make the shift from the big conference where there's lots of people that...

It is amazing what you can learn between the hours of 6:30 p.m. and 7:20 a.m. There is a lot of very valuable information that I wish Sun would capture at JavaOne and make it available through the same process as they do the presentations. I noticed alot of open slots for presentations on Friday. Whats up with that? There were a lot of good BOF's that would have benefitted the audience....

Scott McNealy suggested, in his keynote this morning, that we replace the word "java" with "sex". What a great thing! Here are some links to get you started: I won't even begin to try all the various fun permutations that can be had with this one, but I'm sure the comments section will be quite interesting!

Rewinding back to JavaOne2000, a few of us on the Swing team put together a session called "WebAwareWare" (forgive us, this predated "Web Services" as a household name). In the session we built a rich client version of a little web application called "Blogger", written by a couple guys at Pyra Software. When I first learned of "blogging", my first...

I've found that one of my favorite places is the exhibitor floor. I've found that a lot of the information in sessions I'm able to find online or in books, but when it comes to rapidly learning about what's going on, nothing seems to beat the pavilion floor. (Exhibitor list). My first tip of the show to any and all exhibitors - if you make a "business integration solution," good luck. There...

One of the surprising things about JavaOne for me this year is the amount of talk about Ant. Not the normal "Ant is cool" buzz that I hear (and which still amazes me), but a different kind of talk. There's talk of experimentation and trying out new things. And it all seems to be focusing on how to alleviate the burden that the decision to use XML as the Ant configuration format has...

Follow up to the scripting languages JSR-223... I must emphasize my dissatisfaction with the web-only nature of the scripting language support initiative. One of the biggest issues I have with JSP is that it is intimately tied to the HTTP request and response. Velocity comes to the rescue (and I'm sure there are other alternatives - please add them to the comments below). Once upon a time the...

The first conference I attended after getting my TiBook last year was O'Reilly's Open Source Convention, and I was amazed to see more Macs than any other kind of laptop there. JavaOne is a slightly different group of folks, of course, and I don't think Macs dominate here. But they're in the running. You see them everywhere you look, being used by attendees and presenters. James Gosling is...

Well, as I mentioned before, there's some weird scheduling going on. I got up this morning expecting to go to a couple of performance talks but both of them overflowed in a big way. What a waste! Once again I'll suggest that Sun should make these sessions available online for free.

I've been anticipating this reaction. It was inevitable. But we're not blogging JavaOne because we're being told to. I, at least, am doing so because I'm here, it's fun, and -- most importantly -- I think is important, and I'd like to help it get off to a good start. Communities are built by the inhabitants. You can't just decide to go build a thriving, vital community. But that...

I went to Joshua Bloch's and Neal Gafter's More Programming Puzzlers session. It was fantastic! I won't embarrass myself with how many of the ten puzzlers I got wrong. One piece of advice Bloch gave was to "copy-and-paste" declarations to avoid issues with mis-overridden methods like this:     public class Name {        public boolean equals(...
