JavaOne 2014 is a wrap!

Posted by mriem on October 3, 2014 at 12:12 PM PDT

I had a great time at JavaOne this year. I met up with a lot of old friends, made a number of new friends, but above all learned a lot. And I am excited to start hacking on both the JSF and the MVC specifications!

JavaOne 2014 Day Zero Notes

Posted by edburns on September 28, 2014 at 5:39 PM PDT

I estimate that this is my 15th or 16th JavaOne. I started in 1998 or 1999 and missed 2003 due to the birth of my first son. Aside from that, I haven't missed one since. I consider myself very blessed to have taken a small part in such a long and fun ride.

MVC 1.0 JSR is on its way!

Posted by mriem on September 25, 2014 at 12:07 AM PDT

The ballot for MVC 1.0 has passed and we have approval. So now it is time to move forward with EG formation and from there it is off to work!

Since we are a new JSR we do not have all our infrastructure setup yet.

Please be patient we will get everything setup soon.

Note as I am attending JavaOne it might not happen until after JavaOne ;)
