User Has It Right! ....

Kristian Waagan (of Sun's Java DB development team) has really given Java DB (Sun's distribution of Apache / Derby) a new life of its own when it comes to handling CLOBs, starting with Java DB 10.5.

Check out this thread

Note the following testimony from David Goulden:

The performance improvements with CLOBs are dramatic. I created a record with a CLOB containing about 10 million characters using derby 10.4. The following query took over 6(!) minutes:

       SELECT CONTENT FROM MESSAGES WHERE ID = 1

(CONTENT is the CLOB column.)

I then installed derby 10.5 and did a soft upgrade. The same query now takes less than three seconds!

JavaDB 10.5.1.1

Now, a new release of Apache/Derby is out.

Francois Orsini has a more detailed note on this. It is great to see that many of the features listed are developed by our small but amazing team of Java DB engineers.

(See my previous post about this cauldron where Java DB is forged!)

Soccer {Football} after JavaOne

Some members of Java DB Team take a break from soccer (JavaOne 2006)

If you're at JavaOne this week and do not leave San Francisco before Friday night, consider joining me and a few others (from Brazil, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, France, etc.) to play some soccer {football} near the Golden Gate Bridge. It is a great way to have everything you've seen and learned at JavaOne sink in!

I've posted the logistics information on my java.net blog. 

(The above picture originally appeared here.)

Blog Entries on JavaOne 2007

At java.net, I will be compiling some blog entries in anticipation of JavaOne 2007 and following the conference (mostly from the pavilion floor).

For a database related topic, you might want to check out Francois Orsini's "Enabling Offline Web Applications with Java DB," where he previews his upcoming JavaOne talk with Zimbra's Kevin Henrikson.

Not Just About Diamonds

JavaPolis 2006 proves that Antwerp is not just about the diamond, the ruby, other jewels or gems. It is also about Java and the Java Community. As a starter, you may want to check out Francois Orsini's Hands-on JavaDB (Apache Derby) Lab.

For more, including on the recent, generally-available release of JDK 6, see here

JavaOne 2006, Day 0

I'll be doing most of my JavaOne 2006 related blogging at java.net.

Most recently, I'm pointing to an informal BoF event focused on Apache / Derby.

12 Days to JavaOne

At the time I write this, only 12 days are left to JavaOne 2006. (I've also blogged about it, here, in anticipation.)

Getting active and browsing through the forums seems like a good way to see what concerns people in each of the large categories of Java technologies.
