My previous "State of Java" posts highlighted JUG-AFRICA and the JCP's new openness. In this post, I talk about the new cooperation between JUGs and the JCP, which is exemplified by the Adopt-a-JSR initiative.
Looking at Java's history, both the JCP and Java User Groups have been around for a very long time. Yet, active engagement between the two has only started to happen now. Why is this the...

Now that all of the general JavaOne excitement has died down, it's time to share my favorite part of the week - our annual community leaders meeting, which we held on October 1.
This meeting was a fresh start for us in a lot of ways - for the first time we had active participation from both the Kenai team (which builds and manages the forge side of the site) and Cognisync (which builds and...

It's that time of year again. I've got a few last minute things to pack and then I'm headed off to Oracle HQ to pick up my badge, the airport to pick up my trusty sidekick, Tonya, and then on to the Hilton in Union Square. Officially, JavaOne doesn't start until Sunday, and a lot of people won't get here until Monday. For us, it starts tonight. Kevin Farnham, our editor,...

Beyond being merely a computer programming language, Java is the most widely used software platform in the entire world. There is a large number of various software solutions that were developed using this technology. Without many people being aware, Java is present in our daily lives in embedded technologies like blue-ray discs and a countless number of sites on the internet that...

Today I did something unusual - I drove to the office. One of the really nice things about my job is that I can work from home. The Java.net Infrastructure and Kenai teams are scattered across the U.S. (and one in Canada), and our users are all over the planet, so there's really no reason for me to go sit in a cube all day to answer email and have conference calls.

On the road again. Thursday night I attended GreenJUG in Greenville, South Carolina to see Arun Gupta's EE6 presentation. I've known Arun for a while now, but I've always been working a booth or doing Java.net business while he was speaking, so this is my first time seeing him in action.
He started with a quick review of the history of Java releases and what the "themes" were for each. Then he...

It's hard to know the exact numbers, but I'll venture a guess that well over half of the JSF sites that exist in the world are running Oracle's Mojarra implementation of the JSF spec. Did you know that this implemention is the first large part of JavaEE (then J2EE) to be open-sourced, way back in 2004? As with any decent open source project, we have public continuous integration, a public...

Per the recommendation of Arun Gupta and Imre Oßwald, I used a web voting platform to determine the winner, and here it is.
I would have uploaded it to the Official Homepage...
