Ease of Development is a core driver for much of the work underway in many JSRs - particularily JDBC 4.0. At JavaOne this year we will be talking about some of early draft proposals and I will presenting our ideas, including code examples.
I look forward to seeing many of you at JavaOne 2004, especially at our two talks that will cover JDBC 4.0 and how to maximize how the best performance with your JDBC enabled applications. Our session and BOF should give you an excellent opportunity to learn about the bleeding edge proposals and learn how to maximize your productivity with JDBC. A long time JDBC expert, and a good friend John Goodson from DataDirect Technologies will be joining me at these talks.
In this my first BLOG entry, I wanted to muse quickly on the challenges that face the JDBC developers. As an API that has been around since the early Java days, we are commited to bringing the wealth of language improvements introduced in J2SE 1.5 (Tiger) to benefit all developers. Exciting features such as Generics and Annotations finally give us the tools to take some of the drugery out of day to day JDBC applications.
I have also added the ability to post comments to this posting, so if there are things you'd like to hear about, particularily at our BOF, post a message below or drop me an email.
Until next time...
