Empirical evidence for a lack of Sun-favoritism in the JavaOne talk selection process.
The annual ritual of JavaOne paper submissions and reviews has come
to an end. Some are chosen, many more are not. Even though I’ve been
on the review team for the “Next Generation Web” track for
the past three years, only one of the five talks I submitted was
accepted, and I bet you can guess which one.
A tale of two platforms: mixing Java EE and Yahoo!
Blueprints Widgets on mobile device applications. (Submitted
with Yara Senger of Globalcode)
Secrets of the Rock Star programmers
You call that full stack? First class JavaEE and
JavaFX integration (Submitted with Robert Ekstein of Sun)
Social Networking with JavaServer Faces 2.0, Portlet
2.0, and Ajax Push (Submitted with Neil Griffin of
A complete Tour Of the JavaServer Faces 2.0 Platform
(Submitted with Roger Kitain of Sun)
I'm writing this blog not to complain about the selections, but to
illustrate the impartiality of the review team when it comes to Sun or
non-Sun submissions. So, if your submission wasn’t accepted
either, take heart! There are plenty of other conferences around.
Consider JAOO, Jazoon, Devoxx, JSFOne, and many more. As for my one
accepted talk, Roger and I will try our best to make it new, exciting,
