No JavaOne for me this year, but all signs point to a coming out party for Java EE 5, the nascent efforts I recall very well back in SCA-14.
No JavaOne for me this year, and this will be first time in my professional career where I won't be wandering the caverns of Moscone and once again furitlessly searching for the Esplanade, Room 301 and the speaker ready room. I guess it means one less bean bag will be occupied.
All signs seem to be pointing to a coming out party for Java EE 5 , the nascent efforts of which, I recall very well back in SCA-14 in Sun's Santa Clara campus. I am sure the Glassfish team are planning lots of activities, so I'd would probably check here , for the latest goings on.
Already various bloggers are giving their perspectives on various JavaOne milestones - Bill Roth does a good job at capturing some of the highlights I remember. For this years milestones, announcements and general goings on, I will be watching very closely from not too far away. Happily, already the rumor mill is in full force - Will Sun Open Source Java? Is AOP truley dead? Etc etc.
JavaOne remains the number one gathering of Sun/Javasoft-alumni and current Sun folks. I'm sorry I will miss you all, but I trust you all remember how to tear up in the StarLight lounge .
