JavaOne 2014 Day Four Notes

Posted by edburns on October 28, 2014 at 1:35 PM PDT

With all of my formal JavaOne conference obligations satisfied, day four was dedicated to listening. Another day, another hotel. The community keynote had a little bit of everything and was in the San Francisco Marriott, bringing to four the total number of separate buildings I had to visit for JavaOne.

Note there won't be @Inject support for this as it is not referring to a specific typed artifact.

Enjoy!
