At next week's DEVOXX conference, Henrik Ståhl and Cameron Purdy will be interviewed live. In case you don't recognize the names: Henrik Ståhl is a Senior Director of Product Management at Oracle, overseeing planning and strategy for the Java Platform; Cameron Purdy is Vice President of Development at Oracle, responsible for the Java EE platform, web server and application server products.
If you were going to be at DEVOXX, what question(s) might you want to ask Henrik and/or Cameron?
