"Evolving the Java Platform"
The kind folks at Software Development Times asked me to write
an article on
the future directions for the Java platform. This has now
their May 15th edition as
Evolving the Java Platform.
This includes some thoughts on the planned directions
for Mustang, Dolphin, and J2EE 5.0.
They also broke out a separate short article on
Increasing Transparency: Project Peabody
which discusses some of the things we are doing to
simplify J2SE licensing and encourage community
contributions into Mustang.
We'll be talking in more detail about all these topics (and
a lot more) at JavaOne 2005,
June 27-30 in San Francisco.
