JavaOne

Taking a little break from the conference to recharge, I took a walk this morning on the Embarcadero (down by the Bay), and lo and behold -- ran across "Red's Java House". After breathing, living, and sleeping everything Java for 3 days -- I thought it was humorous, and took a picture of it: I continued along, and ran into the "Java House"... Java is everywhere! ;-) (Looked like a cool...

I attended the session TS-8434: Ajax Push (a.k.a. Comet) with Java Business Integration (JBI) this afternoon. Here's a report... The room was very packed and there was a long line of people (including me) waiting in the 'standby line' to get in. Overall the talk was pretty good. I thought the speaker did a good job laying things out and explaining them. The "Demo" he did was *very* difficult...

Yesterday I attended Brian Goetz' Effective Concurrency For Java and today I went to the companion session Testing Concurrent Java. Both build on topics from Brian's excellent book, Java Concurrency in Practice, which first went on sale one year ago, right here at JavaOne. Listening to these two sessions and chatting with a few folks here at the show, I'm more convinced than ever that...

Have you ever fretted over the difficulty of creating a desktop application with a Swing-based user interface (UI)? Developers have sometimes complained that building Swing applications is just too hard. Sun has taken much of the feedback and has tried to simplify the process of building Swing-based applications on the desktop. The recent simplifications have taken shape as two separate Java...

Every JavaOne bring us numbers. For the mobile universe, the actual numbers are: 2.1 billion Java handsets, 2.5 billion Java Cards, 4 million Blu-Ray devices and 7 million set-top boxes. Wow, that's impressing, but there's something smelling different this year... If I'm not wrong, 2001 was the mobile year at JavaOne. The big focus was the introduction of J2ME to the community. I felt like being...

We presented our technical session earlier today, so now we can finally enjoy the conference - too bad I have to work tomorrow :-( Anyway, I'd like to talk a little bit about our presentation... The room was quite packed (541 seats of 800 available), and the session was kind of fun, besides our problems with the demo. In fact, we took a look on the evaluations after we left, and most of them...

O.K. I've posted about this earlier. Here are some final details. We assume you have some degree of fitness to join this impromptu, unofficial and friendly soccer {football} game. We'll meet on Friday at 5:15 pm in front of Cafe Museo of SF MOMA. (For a map, see here.) That's right across from Moscone Center on Third Street, between Howard and Mission. We will wait until about 5:30 pm to...

Slides for TS-4865 are available here. The demo shown in the preso is available in 3 parts - part 1, part 2 and part 3. This session is repeated again on Friday, 1:30pm. UPDATE: See a review of the session at TheServerSide Interoperability Blog. Technorati: wsit webservices glassfish javaone

In what has to be the most photographed item at JavaOne this year.. there is a Blackbox inside the JavaOne Pavilion at the Moscone Center. Project Blackbox is a virtualized datacenter available in a shipping container, and it's presence here is part of a Worldwide tour. It's certainly a sight to see. They're giving tours of the inside... but you'll have to wade through the people taking...

The JSR claims to be a canonical form a Swing application, but I don't think the JSR team has used many applications. Let's start with the basics, where has this JSR been hiding out? Eclipse Rich Client Program (RCP) has had many of these features for years, and more. The application JSR includes things that are part of a 'typical' application such as (life-cycle, resource, action, task and...

One of the most exciting things at the show this year is that my company, Krugle, announced the beta of an enterprise search appliance for development teams. After all the months of labor, I can finally share our little bundle of joy with the world. :-) In my experience, one of the biggest problems that enterprise developers face every day is finding useful information across the bazillion...

Keaton is a new java.net project for integrating Apple's QTKit with Java. I.e., make it possible for Java developers to leverage the latest Quicktime support (since Apple seems to have abandoned Quicktime for Java) to be able to do cool media applications. The project is looking for developers to join up and help out. The presentation was given by java.net's own Chief Chief, Chris Adamson. I...

After attending the keynote session, and getting ready for the technical keynote demo on JavaScript Everywhere! jMaki on client, Phobos on server, performing the keynote demo (which I think went well) and talking to many of you, alternating between booth #953 and booth #966 in the Pavilion, the day concluded with a Sun-only party at the third floor of W Hotel. Here are some pictures of movers...

Thousand people and the big players talking about the event perspective. The highlights for me were: Java 100% Open Source: finally the great news was published out there - Java is definitely free for use, copy and distribution under GPLv2 Java FX: an impressive version of rich client platform that promises integration between desktop and mobile applications. The rapid application development is...

John Gage kick started JavaOne 2007 this morning. He really explained the essence of JavaOne in 3 words "Don't be shy". Over the next 81 (now 79 hours), there is an ocean of information available in terms of General Sessions, Technical Sessions, Birds-of-Feather, Pavilion, lunch table discussions and many other opportunities to socialize and build the community. He asked every one to...

What is JavaFX? It's a set of Java technologies that will make it easier to develop rich multimedia content on the Java platform. At it's core, it's a new scripting language that runs on desktops and mobile devices. From the JavaOne general session today, we learn this about JavaFX: it's a consumer focused Java technology; it has been designed for high impact consumer markets; it's based on...

Sun is, as everybody knows, struggling to get mindshare around their products. This is especially true as they try to get uptake as they open source more of their stuff -- such as Solaris. Hiring Ian Murdock of Debian fame is a pretty good idea to me. One of the biggest hurdles to (Open) Solaris uptake is the fact that so many things in dealing with Solaris are so annoyingly odd to all the...

Is this really JavaOne? Walking around downtown San Francisco in May wearing a t-shirt and shorts and not freezing to death? Record setting heat must be boiling my brain! I spent most of Monday at the Startup Camp 2 festivities over at the old Argent Hotel. Startup Camp is an open space unconference hosted by Sun and run by the nice folks over at Mass Events Labs. If you've never participated...

As computers go towards ubiquity, common life changes. The masses don't care about the latest Glassfish release or the OpenJDK open-source license. They do care about entertainment tools, fancy devices and smart-cars. That's what changes their lives, in the common sense. Yes, I know all the enterprise stuff and the licensing model impact the way technology is applied and evolves, but now I'm...
