If you'll be in the San Francisco area during JavaOne week, and you're interesting in attending some of JavaOne, but don't want to pay for the entire conference, consider purchasing a JavaOne / Oracle Develop Discover pass. The base Discover pass costs just $75 and provides you with entry into the keynote addresses, the exhibition halls , the Mason Street Tent (where I'll be spending quite a lot of time), Oracle Mix, and more. If you'd like to attend a few sessions, consider the Discover Plus pass, which provides your choice of three OpenWorld or JavaOne / Oracle Develop sessions and some other extras, for $695.
Note that these prices are the pre-conference prices -- you need to purchase your Discover pass by September 18 to get these rates. If you purchase your pass at the conference, the cost will be $125 for the Discover pass, and $795 for the Discover Plus pass.
The Mason Street Tent will be in part a gathering center for the Java community. As java.net Community Manager Sonya Barry recently reported , the tent will be the center of java.net activity at JavaOne. Though I'll be attending quite a lot of sessions, when I'm not attending a session, you'll usually find me in the tent (probably writing a blog about the last session I attended, or chatting with the community, or writing a blog about one of those chats). Java User Group leaders are expected to be setting up shop near the java.net area, and the Oracle Technology Network will also be in the area. The OTN will be featuring a full schedule of interviews and talks with key members of the Java and broader open source communities as part of its Oracle Technology Network Live program.
You can get a sneak preview of JavaOne, including what's going to be in the tent, this coming Tuesday, September 7, at 10 AM, Pacific Time, in a special edition of Justin Kestelyn's TechCast Live . See the details in the JavaOne Conference Blog's post JavaOne Preview on TechCast Live! (Tues., Sept. 7, 10am PT) .
Still having doubts? Well, as Sonya notes, java.net will be located right next to the coffee and beer -- so that should guarantee we'll see you, right?
But, seriously, if you'd like to attend just some of JavaOne, do consider purchasing a JavaOne / Oracle Develop Discover pass. With everything that's going to be going on in the tent, in the exhibition halls, and at the keynotes, how can you go wrong for just $75 (or $695 to be able to attend 3 sessions)?
In the Aquarium, Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine announces a New GlassFish 3.1 Screencast: Application-scoped resources :
This short screencast demonstrates the new application-scoped resources feature available starting with Milestone 4 of GlassFish 3.1 (the demo used promoted build #17). Such resources are bound to a module (war, ear, ejb) and as such they are created on deploy and destroyed when the module is undeployed. They are defined in a file called
glassfish-resources.xml (schema-constrained ) and shipped with the archive...
