It's time to start your JavaOne planning, especially if you're involved in a Java-net project and you'd like to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about your project in a Community Corner Podcast... also:
Java Today: Community Corner Podcasts at JavaOne, Flex and Spring Integration Refcard Released, and Transaction Strategies Based on Java Transaction Models;
Featured Podcast: Java Mobility Podcast 75: Daniel Green on kids and computers;
Weblogs: Weather on SunTechDays in Russia, Plug-in any Ruby/Rack based framework to GlassFish, and SOAP Message Security with Password Derived Keys;
Forums: the LWUIT project's branching and ports philosphy, Getting a list of all active ServletSessions, and Glassfish process crashing: what are the recommended next steps?
It's time to start your JavaOne  planning, especially if you're involved in a Java-net project  and you'd like to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about your project in a Community Corner Podcast . These podcasts will be replacing the mini-talks that have taken place at past JavaOne conferences.
If you have a project you want to talk about email your Community Leader with your idea, a link to your people page, a brief abstract, preferred recording times, and if your prefer to be interviewed or do a slide deck presentation. NOTE: "presentations" will be made in a recording booth with only the host as an audience, but we will record the location of your slide deck in the beginning of the recording so listeners can follow along.
You can view the current Community Corner Podcast Schedule  and select your preferred time slots. Recording times will be on a first-come first-served basis, so if you'd like to talk about your project in a podcast, now is a good time to get started.
I'm really looking forward to my first JavaOne ! I plan to see all of the Community Corner podcasts. I may even host a few!
Anyway, we're all very busy -- but the truth is that JavaOne will be upon us much sooner than we think. So, now is the time to take advantage of the opportunity to organize and submit your proposal for a JavaOne Community Corner Podcast .
The latest Java Mobility Podcast  is
Java Mobility Podcast 75: Daniel Green on kids and computers , in which Daniel Green from Sun Microsystems talks about computers in education, getting kids excited, and computer clubs on thumb drives.
In Java Today , Sonya Barry announces the details about the upcoming Community Corner Podcasts at JavaOne : "Will you be at JavaOne? Do you have something to talk about? Submit a proposal for a podcast! The Community Corner 2009 wiki  is up now! It's got a full explanation of the shift from mini-talks to podcasts, as well as the complete instructions for signing up. You can also view the latest Podcast Schedule .
James Sugrue interviews the authors of a new refcard in Flex and Spring Integration Refcard Released: Meet The Authors : "Today we release the Flex & Spring Integration Refcard, which is now available to download . I asked the authors, James Ward and Jon Rose, a little bit more about integrating both technologies, as well as getting their views on the future of RIAs and whether JavaFX can fit it's place alongside Flex."
And Dave West covers the current state of Java transactions in Transaction Strategies Based on Java Transaction Models : "The concept of a transaction is essential to assure data integrity and consistency. A complete understanding of transactions requires familiarity with basics, models, and strategies... The Java platform supports three transaction models: Local Transaction model, Programmatic Transaction model, and Declarative Transaction model."
In today's Weblogs , Sergey Malenkov writes in his post Weather on SunTechDays  about the JavaFX applications seminar he'll be co-leading at this week's Sun Techdays in St. Petersburg, Russia : "I'm going to participate in it and hold the "Developing Innovative Multimedia JavaFX Applications" seminar together with my colleague. I'll be talking about accessing the web services and deploying applications. My presentation will be based on the WeatherWidget sample that was slightly refactored. So, what kind of weather to expect on the conference?"
Vivek Pandey writes about how to Plug-in any Ruby/Rack based framework to GlassFish : "GlassFish gem as well as GlassFish v3 supports Rack. Rack provides an interface to plugin a Ruby web framework with a web sever. Similar to Python WSGI. This means that any ruby based framework that can talk Rack can be simply deployed on GlassFish."
And, Kumar Jayanti describes SOAP Message Security with Password Derived Keys : "With Latest Metro 2.0 bits you can now try signing and encrypting SOAP Messages using the WSS 1.1 Password Derived Keys Feature. This is useful incase one does not want to use Certificates or Kerberos tokens etc..."
The current java.net Poll , which will end on Friday, asks "Are you more likely to use a library or framework if it comes bundled for your IDE or build tool?"
In today's Forums ,
Shai Almog explains the LWUIT project's branching and ports philosophy : "We don't open branches for a reason. We are already maintaining several ports and every branch will demand additional maintainance which will require resources we can't afford. I did tag the change to allow you guys to work against an older version until we get the code right. Furthermore, keeping a branch will provide no benefit since the main advantage of LWUIT is the one API for all."
Wolfram Rittmeyerasks for assistance form the community in Re: Getting a list of all active ServeltSessions? : "Hi Guys, We're woprking on a very interactive app. As such the code handling one user sometimes needs to be aware of the state of other users in the system. Is there a proper servlet way to do this? Logically info on a user's state belonsg in his or her session, but I cant find a way to read that from a servlet being executed on behalf of a different user."
Marina Vatkina responds to the question Re: Glassfish process crashing. What are the recommended next steps? : "Are you using JPA in your database access? If yes, which implementation do you use? If you use JPA, check if caching is involved. If yes, look at tweaking caching size and strategies.Regards, -marina."
