So far today the most interesting talk I've been to is the one on RFID techonology by Sun. They've built it on Jini and Rio, which itself is built on Jini, and they have an impresive platform for dong stuff with RFID applications. The match is good because these systems require customization and smarts at the edge of the network, where the data is gathered, because otherwise too much data would...
I was surprised and REALLY delighted to see a full crowd in a good-sized room attending a JavaOne Jini session. Be still my heart...
... wherein we start gearing up for the upcoming (or incoming) JavaOne conference and wonder how each year the same things can be new, over and over again ...
I think I see the economy growing.

So why provide a JDBC RowSet co-bundle for the Java Web Services Pack 1.4 ? Many of you have contacted us with various questions on how to use the standard RowSet definitions and reference implementations that we have provided as part of JSR-114.
The JWSDP 1.4 was announced a month ago, but it is now finally out! It includes what I mentioned then, and a few other goodies too!

June has been a banner month for open source debuts.
I was pretty impressed with some of the UI stuff I saw at the keynote this morning. Thought I'd share some thoughts...
We introduced the concept at JavaOne'03, and now we're taking the JDesktop Network Component (JDNC) project open source on javadesktop just in time for JavaOne'04.
After several years of internal development, Sun felt it was time to open our kimono and share the source code of the official Reference Implementation for JavaServer(TM) Faces technology with the world. In this blog, I welcome you to the project, share the development model we have used to bring the project to its present state, and give some insight into where we want to go in the future.
J2EE developers who have not downloaded the the Java Application Verification Kit for the Enterprise
should do so and incorporate it into their normal development process.
