Interop event in the Bay Area
This event aimed primarily at architects and CIOs is something that I have been helping pull together. It is scheduled for Tues., Jan 31st at the Network Meeting Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The event has a nominal fee and although you should not expect to see code and API level details, it should be an interesting forum to hear from the vendors and more importantly from the users when the rubber meets the road.
The main challenges of enterprise integration such as management and identity is expected to be covered in greater length.
You should also expect to get a sneak peek for more interoperabilty support in Glassfish at this event. Some of the support, such as early bits for ws-addressing is available today.
