HK2, multi-purpose kernel

Eduardo already covered GlassFish presence and commitment from Oracle in this post but I'd like to emphasize the HK2 part to point out that with this kernel now making its way into WebLogic, it's the only micro-kernel used in more than one application server. In fact HK2 is now used in the leading Open Source application server as well as in the leading commercial application server. More details on HK2 and how it's used in WebLogic were discussed in "HK2: Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle GlassFish Server, and Beyond" (S319438).

6uN: le nouveau petit nom du "consumer JRE" en route pour JavaFX

Si vous avez entendu parler de JavaFX, vous n'avez peut-être pas entendu parler du "consumer JRE". Dans tous les cas, il faut désormais parler de "Java SE 6 Update N" pour ce pré-requis pour JavaFX qui couvre un outil de déploiement, un kernel, un quick-starter, un mécanisme de mise à jour, un nouveau look-and-feel (Nimbus) et plus encore. Le premier build est disponible ici. Plus de détails sur le blog de l'architecte Client Java: Chet Haase

Même si JavaFX a besoin de ces améliorations pour fournir une meilleure expérience à l'utilisateur, 6uN sera bénéfique pour Swing et tout autre application coté client.

Consumer JRE

Being quite concentrated this year at JavaOne on server-side and GlassFish content, I did not attend Ethan's talk on the Consumer JRE (né Java Browser Edition and aka Java Kernel). Some time ago I had written down my thoughts on how doable and needed I thought this was (and I wasn't all that positive I must say). Now with JavaFX around the corner, this is becoming a high priority and a quick chat with Chet Haase has me more positive about the possible size improvements.

The numbers are now as follows: entire JRE (Java 6) is under 11Mb. HelloWorld requires a 2Mb download. Notepad, Swing Set, and LimeWire translate to something between 3 and 4 Mb downloads. The improvements over what I had measured as due to dynamic libraries (dll, so) optimizations (I had only looked at rt.jar which is only responsible for half the JRE size) or even removal while some others are relative and due to JDK 6 bundling more stuff than 5.0 which I did the review for (JAX-WS is the most obvious example).

Results coming to a JRE near you as soon as for 6.0 update 2.
