JavaOne India (Hyderabad) Is Under Way!
As I write this, JavaOne and Oracle Develop is getting under way in Hyderabad, India. The conference, located at the Hyderabad International Convention Center, will run for two days. The conference agenda shows something I've not seen before at a conference: Tea Break (from 10:45 to 11:30 AM, and again from 4:00 to 4:30 PM). JavaOne and Oracle Develop are clearly organized with awareness of local customs!
Looking further into the schedule, the JavaOne Keynote (on Tuesday) is titled "Java Strategy and Directions" (presented by Nandini Ramani and Param Singh). The conference gives attention to a broad spectrum of Java/JVM technologies, with sessions on JavaFX 2.0, JDK 7, Java ME, Java EE 6, etc. Tuesday afternoon features a JavaOne Technical Keynote, with presentations on "Java SE: The Road Ahead" (Simon Ritter), "Java EE: The Evolution of the Java Platform" (Arun Gupta), and "Java ME and Embedded: A Fresh Look at the Future" (Terrence Barr). Additional Day 1 sessions include a look at Java NIO.2 in JDK 7, and sessions on JAX-RS, LWUIT, JPA 2.0, Garbage Collection, ...
Wednesday's sessions include coverage of NetBeans IDE 7, HTML5, scalability, Project Coin, Java EE 6 in the cloud, Java in embedded and TV devices, GlassFish 3.1, Servlet 3.0, Java Server Faces 2.0, the JCP, JavaCard, Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI), and more.
In a recent java.net poll, a fair share of people indicated that they consider the regional JavaOnes to be a great innovation. I certainly agree with that, myself.
I wanted to check out Twitter to see what people are tweeting from JavaOne Hyderabad. Unfortunately, for me Twitter is basically down right now (I get only a page header). Does the start of JavaOne and Oracle Develop India have anything to do with this? I wonder...

Smartphones get a lot of attention these days, but feature phones running Java ME outsell smartphones by a 5x-10x margin and have an installed based measured in the billions, not millions. So, as an application developer or ISV, if you are going for the big markets, Java ME really needs to be part of your platform story...

I’ve chosen the following methods...
