JavaOne

This is the third installment in my summary of the sessions I attended at JavaOne this year. The previous installments covered Java futures and Java programming practice. This one covers concurrency. Once again, the titles here are not always the ones that appear in the conference programme. I tried to undo the mangling that the Trademark Police...

This is the second installment in my summary of the sessions I attended at JavaOne this year. The previous installment covered Java futures. This one covers Java programming practice. Once again, the titles here are not always the ones that appear in the conference programme. I tried to undo the mangling that the Trademark Police typically impose on talk titles, so...

I was at JavaOne again this year, and this time I found time to go to a surprising number of talks. I started writing a summary of them but it grew to about six screenfuls, so I decided to post it in installments. Here's the first installment, covering the talks about Java futures. The titles here are not always the ones that appear in the conference programme...

More adventures at the Pavilion on Day Three of the 2008 JavaOne Conference... Sorry for the delay on getting this up folks... I've been catching up back at my day job too. We have more cool stuff coming though, and it'll be worth the wait... I promise!

There is no word to describe what is JavaOne. If I take a try, I would say that is definitely awesome! It rocks! It is the best geek tourism ever!!! The sessions are great, the speakers are great, the Pavillion is great, the communities, companies, people, all the information, flyers, talks, contests, chats, demos, videos, places, souvenirs, stuff, food, parties, pubs, dinners... the coolest...

JavaOne 2008 is finally over ... 9th consecutive one for me and extremely busy as always! John talked about GlassFish related announcements.

The saddest day at the conference is undoubtly friday, when they pack the pavillion stuff and you perceive that the thing is almost over. For some reasons, however, friday has been one of my most important days at the conference thanks to a long talk with Henry Story, which will have some consequences for blueMarine. Stay tuned. Spent saturday at Muir Woods and Point Reyes, spent sunday on the...

I really enjoy JavaOne, I've been to pretty much every show since the first JavaOne in 1996. This year I think JavaOne was an eye-opener on many levels, the Java ecosystem is very much alive. The pavilion floor was full of vendors, there were lines for the sessions and even back to lines to the restrooms. I met some folks who hadn't been to JavaOne since Java 5 came out so it was great to see...

Hundreds of sessions, thousands of people...and what did I come away with? Lots of t-shirts, plush toys, and more t-shirts. Oh, and 3 main things related to my work: REST, Ruby, and NetBeans. REST -- Want to communicate with web services? You'd better learn something about REST APIs. I can't give a full tutorial here. I hardly know enough myself. But I can give you some info. Give everything an...

This morning, James Gosling gave his traditional keynotes speech, with a series of impressive and entertaining demonstrations. What came across was the vast range of in which Java is being used. From online gaming to 3D graphics on mobile phones, from Smart Cards to particle accelerators at the CERN, from intelligent pens to robotic cars and power stations, Java is being used absolutely...

One of the great things about many applications these days is their open API for end-user additions or extensions or plug-ins. OpenOffice allows you to add your own functionality to the application as well, and you can create those extensions with Java of course. And tools like NetBeans make this easier than you might suspect by providing wizards to help you get started. The OpenOffice API is...

Thursday was an interesting day, but tiring. The third day of a conference always seems to be the roughest in terms of comfort level. One or all of the following is guaranteed to be aching at any given time: Feet: From standing around talking to people or waiting in line Back: From lugging around the asymptotically increasing contents of your backpack Butt: From sitting on those innocent-...

Now I can say, at last, that I'm a JavaOne speaker, really, not only a successful submitter. This year no headache, sore throat, cold, flu, pain in the ass prevented me from performing my talk. Not even the stinking MacBook Pro power supply that broke again a couple of days ago (men, I had to buy the third in two years). There could have been more attendees to my talk, but an agenda change a few...

Earlier this year I decided to renew my commitment to learning something about Java ME. I went so far as to get a RIM Blackberry device when I had the opportunity to update my cell phone. Finding a Blackberry oriented session at JavaOne was just bonus material! I was excited to attend the session. I really wanted to learn how to develop apps for this excellent phone. So I attended the "Developing...
