Ed Burns JavaOne 2005 Day Three Notes

Posted by edburns on June 30, 2005 at 2:27 AM PDT

My goodness it's late. JavaOne will do that to you. I can't let a
conference day pass without writing at least something of the day.

Here's a testamonial to the power of having a large part of the Java
community present at JavaOne. At href="http://weblogs.java.net/blog/edburns/archive/2005/06/ed_burns_javaon_1.html">Java
Licensee Day I sat on a panel to be grilled by the licensees and
Barry Coleman from ATG mentioned that payroll processing company href="http://www.adp.com">ADP is using JSF for at least some of
their revenue generating apps. Apparently ATG uses ADP for their
payroll processing. Anyhow, I thought that was great and when someone
(Doug) asked me about commercial JSF deployments at the smackdown today,
I mentioned that ADP was a big commmercial user. It just so happens
that one of the people that worked on it, Jon Cochran, was in the
audience and introduced himself to me after the talk. Very cool!

Regarding the smackdown in general. First I want to say thanks to
Kevin Osborn for moderating and to Jim Driscoll for recommending him.
My main goal for this session was to entertain the audience and Kevin
really made the session very fun. Also thanks to the panelists for
being such good sports and playing along. I hope it was informative for
people. I'd love to hear comments. I think it turned out pretty well,
everyone defended their turf nicely, but I thought JSF came out on top
(DING!) Seriously, though it was great to share with the audience some
insight into the differences between the frameworks.
