Quick blog to inform you that SailFin V1 MS6 is now available.
If you are coming to JavaOne, don't forget to drop by at Hudson's booth inside Java Playground.
The application jVoiceBridge is a software-only audio mixer that handles Voice over IP (VoIP) audio communication and mixing, for tasks such as conference calls, voice chat, speech detection, and audio for 3D virtual environments. Currently it is most commonly known for its use in the Wonderland project, a 3D virtual environment developed by Sun.
I have written this article to give an...
The xmpp-bc and sip-bc projects just released new versions (0.9.1) of their binding components, now with new and improved collaboration capabilities.
Java Business Integration (JBI) focuses on loose coupling and rapid/dynamic application composition. This is as applicable to mobile devices as it is the enterprise space, and JBI is by no means tied down to app servers.
Java Business Integration (JBI) may prove the best environment in which to develop convergent communications applications that (once and for all) integrate the disparate networks (XMPP + SIP).
After Rick Ross, Tim Bray speaked about Java. Very interresting.
Can java + SIP + JMF+ Applets do the same thing as SALT ?
Web Services are catching on fast and furious, but how do these things fit into a SLEE architecture? Is a HTTP resource adapter the answer?
Can the network really become a computer? A description of a simple technique to share, and connect to, objects in other VMs, architecturally as though they are all in the same VM.
Is an "email tax" an attempt to solve the SPAM problem or just profit from it?
Discrete event simulation is not just a way to write academic papers it is a great way to get distributed applications debugged. Java makes writing in-situ simulation envirnments relatively simple.
Portability or Interoperability - What is the big deal and when does it matter? Not a problem until Networks stop working or perform very badly, or when programs cough, choke, and die. Portability and Interoperability seem worlds apart until the 'Network is the Computer' starts to happen, then the lines start to blur.
bytecode re-writing - an evil under-utilized technique?
Sun's Visionary statement of "the Network is the Computer" will eventually happen, but the question is when. Putting political and business issues aside, what are the technical barriers to true Network Computing? Why is programming for Networks so hard? There are many answers, but identifying and prioritizing the barriers, and then overcoming the important barriers with integrated solutions, moves us in the direction of the Network becoming the Computer(...or was that the Computer becoming Network?)
An effort is underway to setup a Communications Services Framework. The framework will provide a set of web services to enable IP telephony deployment and more generally peer-to-peer real-time communication. It will solve the problems encountered when deploying a muli-network IP communications infrastructure.
