Working together with Duke Award winner and Java Champion Fabiane Nardon and the also Duke Award Winner and NetBeans Dream Team member Sven Reimers I have presented talks that discusses the Future Java Developer, the most recent ones in JavaOne Brasil and JFokus. Admittedly, we are not particularly visionaries, and our "future" is pretty grounded on experience today. Although during...

I had originally planned to write a blog post per day during JavaOne 2010. That being my first JavaOne I was of course completely unprepared for the hectic routine of sessions, meetings, parties and more sessions. I wrote blog posts in the first two days and disappeared ever since.
I am alive, well, and back to Brazil. I had a terrific time in San Francisco where I got to meet a lot of...

Thoughts on the first day
There was a lot happening at day 1. The amount of simultaneous activity can be dazzling at times and I felt i needed a good nights rest in order to digest the enormous amount of information fed into my brain yesterday.
I am writing this post from the Mason Street tent and the vibe around here is electrifying. Its hard to remember as one goes about the day-to-day development activities that there...
For anybody interested, we are giving a talk about repositories and content management in general on Thursday 12:30 at Hilton SF, Yosemite B. Session ID is S314239.
Feel free to drop by and ask also for Magnolia related questions should you have any. We have reserved some time also after the presentation should there be the need.
Why did JavaFX 1.x divide the Java community so much? How does the new 2.0 roadmap fit into the current (and future) landscape of RIAs? Is Paul the Octopus on Twitter? Some or none of these questions may be answered in this blog post.
The biggest announcement - and the biggest surprise for many - of JavaOne 2010 was certainly Oracle's new plans for JavaFX 2.0... or, should we say, Swing 2.0?
I mentioned during my BOF at JavaOne a new component that is close to ready for moving into SwingX: JXScrollMap.
Part of the way that SwingX works is that members first join the incubator project. Members contribute ideas to the incubator, flesh them out, and eventually bring them into SwingX. The incubator contains lots of stuff from really mature ideas to things that aren't. Some of the ideas...

Putting our heads in the sand is not a good development strategy.
My first session this moring at JavaOne was Deploying Java Applications on the Web. It was quite good as it covered some of the newer techniques that have been added to the latest 1.6_x updates. As with any good session, I walked away with some knowledge that I hadn't entered with, but what struck me the most was the legacy of JavaFX. While JavaFX was mentioned (in passing once...
