GlassFish at the Jazoon Conference

The GlassFish Day at Jazoon was really well attended (significantly more than last year) and is now over, so the rest of the conference can now start. This is a good time to go thru the list of GlassFish-related talks at the conference, so here it goes:

James Gosling's Keynote
Roberto on Java EE 6
Jérôme and Ludo on GlassFish v3
Java EE 6 BOF
Hudson talk
Ed's JSF 2.0 presentation
Harold on Metro Web Services
Ludo again, this time on JavaFX+GlassFish v3
Ed on JavaFX+JavaEE

Slides for the GlassFish Day are being posted here.

Jazoon trip report

This wiki page has the agenda and the slides for the presentations given during the GlassFish Day at the Jazoon conference earlier this week. Audio for some of the session should be released on the GlassFish Podcast in the next few weeks.

We had a nice, participating crowd throughout the day. I'd like to thank all the speakers for making their presentation different from the Jazoon one. All the talks had many good questions but I'd say Jersey, Comet/IceFaces, JavaEE, and v3 triggered the most. IceFaces' Ted Goddard did a comprehensive Comet presentation as well as the SailFin demo with a page of all the SIP phones registered updated on the fly. Paul Sandoz had a demo-mostly session on JAX-RS/Jersey that went very well. Roberto Chinnici had a good feedback session on JavaEE. Interestingly OSGi as a developer-exposed API didn't trigger any interest from this crowd.

In Jerome's v3 talk, only 5 people or so had seen a GlassFish v3 demo before. Sometimes we take for granted that most people have seen the various JavaOne keynotes and associated screencasts. Overall 45-minute sessions worked well (thanks to all the speakers for making it work). We stayed on track for the entire day (9am-3pm). Oh and by the way, the conference had great Wifi (worth noting as I never had this at any conference).

Finally some interesting statistics from the participants:
• Half of the attendees were GlassFish users.
• 80% of all the attendees use Java EE 5 (the rest probably can't).
• Top 5 features for GF (ranked): JPA, Rest (Jersey), EJB3, Metro Web Services, Clustering
• Top 3 resources to get information (ranked): Documentation, Forums & mailing lists, TechTips & Articles.

A good keynote (IMHO)

I find Ted Neward to be an impressive guy when it comes to broad, yet deep, software culture (the JavaPosse folks come close seconds only because of Tor's lack of interest for Web Services :). I was particularly impressed with the way he conducted the JavaPolis 2006 interviews. Really good questions and sooo many different topics.

I just got to listen to his Jazoon keynote from this past summer. This is a good one IMO: not a vendor pitch, relatively technical, forward looking, and funny (that of course depends on your sense of humor). The recording doesn't have good sound quality, but I encourage you to listen to Ted talk about the future of languages and why they now matter more than before. The simple answer (hope I'm not spoiling the talk) is that we have a widely used and adopted JVM. Ted even has tips as to how to sell (or not) any new language to your boss.

This talk had me thinking about AIR's ActionScript VM. Yet another VM. Parrott isn't there yet it seems, so can Mozilla, Adobe and others turn their VM into a successful platform?
