JavaOne 2007 in San Francisco is almost upon us (May 8 - 11). It is again shaping up to packed with information and exciting events including some new things like the "Day 0" CommunityOne event on May 7 (see below for more info).

This being year 1 of Java ME open source we have worked especially hard to expand the Java ME footprint at JavaOne to include as much relevant and interesting mobile and embedded content, expertise, and events as possible and to give you a chance to mix and mingle with the community and catch up with all the things going on in the Java ME space.

Since JavaOne is so big it is easy to miss out on something or overlook an interesting event or talk. I thought it would be useful to collect all the various bits and pieces related to Java ME and the Mobile & Embedded Community and create a "Java ME Guide to JavaOne 2007" for overview and quick reference.

Please be aware that, as with any such event, all information is subject to last minute changes. I've tried to include all relevant URLs so be sure to check those before the event to make sure you're up-to-date.

Also, please leave comments or email me if you have changes or additions to this guide. I will try to continuously update it to make sure it provides the latest information.

Enjoy JavaOne 2007. Hope to see you there!
