GlassFish swimming to CommunityOne North (April 15th), and a beer meetup

CommunityOne North is happening tomorrow is Oslo, Norway. A single day (free of charge and totally sold out) really packed with many sessions on many different topics (as in any good C1 conference). Simon Phipps (Sun) and Håkon Wium Lie (Opera) are the two keynote speakers.

GlassFish and Java EE are well represented with sessions on GlassFish v3, migrating to and writing with Java EE 5, a session on Sailfin by Ericsson, Hudson for performance testing, and more.

Whether or not you are attending the conference (and if you're not attending the MamaMia musical) on Wednesday evening and are at all interested in GlassFish, you should consider coming to the GlassFish Meet-Up at Hard-Rock Café (map) from 4:30pm-6:pm.

CommunityOne Olso - April 15th 2009 - Call for Papers

The CommunityOne conference is said to be heading East to New York (March 18 - 19, 2009) and West to San Francisco (June 1 - 3, 2009), so I'm not sure what direction it's heading when going to Olso...
Update: the site is online (has been a little while in fact):

So there it is : CommunityOne Oslo is happening on April 15th 2009 and the call for papers is open. Simply a 150-word (max) abstract to The keynote speaker will be Ian Murdock, now Vice President of Cloud Computing Strategy at Sun.

Suggested topics include :
• Development and deployment in the cloud and virtualization
• Social networks and Web 2.0 trends
• RIAs, scripting, and tools
• Dynamic languages, databases, and Web and application servers
• Open-source projects, business models, and trends
• And more

I understand this will be held in the heart of Oslo in a very nice place and that there will be a (social) GlassFish get together at some point in the day.

JavaZone 2008

Just like last year, I'll be attending and presenting at Oslo's JavaZone conference in less than two weeks. My presentation is called "Dynamic languages and frameworks in an enterprise application server world - an approach with GlassFish v3".

I'll describe the reasons why one would want to run dynamic languages and associated frameworks on top of an application server and describe several approaches to implement this. I'll illustrate this for JRuby On Rails, Groovy and more using the forthcoming GlassFish v3 Prelude release (scheduled for next month). If you're interested in the Java side of GlassFish v3 (fast startup, dynamic loading or services, etc...), I think you'll get something out of it too. The talk is the first one on the first day, competing with 3 Norwegian talks and Erich Gamma himself. Wish me luck!

Here's an early list of the talks I'd like to attend (as always, I'll attend 50% max):
• RESTful Web Services with Spring (JSR311 or not?)
• Qi4j - a new approach to old problems (never heard Rickard present)
• Project Hydrazine: JavaFX Open Cloud Computing Platform (had no time to look into this since J1)
• Quercus (the list of PHP apps it runs is very impressive)
• Taking Apache Camel for a Ride (OpenESB has a service engine for Camel)
• Spring == XML, XML == sucks therefore Spring == sucks? (will the content live up to the catchy title?)
• Real-world OpenESB, best practices and experiences (There's always something to learn from real-world experiences)
• Scala? Ruby? Erlang? Python! (no matter how many dynamic languages we support on GlassFish v3, there'll be more to look at)
• Zero Turnaround in Java Development
• What's new and cool in Portlet 2.0 (Julien just left JBoss to join eXo)
• How Can Amazon EC2 Benefit from the Elastic Grid Solution? (I don't care what Gartner says, cloud computing can be real today)
• Panel: Alternative and Emerging Languages

Swimming to Oslo (JavaZone)

The JavaZone conference (sounds like it is sold out) is coming up quickly next week in Oslo, Norway. I'll be presenting on GlassFish (very last session on the second day), covering the very-soon-to-be-released version 2 as well as a bit of GlassFish v3. I'll try to throw in several demos to make this as lively as possible.

My previous trip to Oslo was a very nice first experience in Norway. I hope this one is as enjoyable with the added benefit of meeting some colleagues and friends attending some great sessions. Here's my "short" list:

•  Quick and easy profiling with integrated tools - Gregg Sporar, Jaroslav Bachorik and Jiri Sedlacek
•  Farewell to the application server: The server container anti-pattern and how to avoid it - Johannes Brodwall
•  Building scalable, reliable, secure, RESTful services - Dan Diephouse
•  POJO Scalability and Large Workloads with Terracotta - Jonas Bonér
•  Choosing the right framework for your web-application - Alexander Snaps
•  The Top 10 Ways to Botch Enterprise Java Application Scalability and Reliability - Cameron Purdy
•  The Hundred Kilobytes Kernel - Rikard Thulin and Ferid Sabanovic
•  JavaPosse, live! - Tor Norbye, Dick Wall and Carl Quinn
•  Building Enterprise Applications with JavaServer Faces, Spring, and JPA - Kito D. Mann
•  JRuby on Rails - Aslak Hellesøy
•  Java Persistence 2.0 – What’s New - Linda DeMichiel
•  Apache Tuscany - Building SOA Solutions With The Service Component Architecture - Simon Laws
•  Contract-Aware Web Service Development - Ryan Heaton
•  Aspect Oriented SOA: Injecting Aspects into Composite Applications using OpenESB - Jason Baragry
•  "To be announced" - Ted Neward (always entertaining)
•  Ruby Tooling, State of The Art - Tor Norbye

Some pretty hard calls to make in perspective!

Oslo for a day

After participating in the Paris Sun Tech Days, I flew to Oslo, Norway for a day to deliver a talk on GlassFish. This was part of an Open Source Day set up by the local Sun people. Lots of people showed up and some talks included interesting use-cases using projects such as OpenESB.

This was my first time in Norway so I thought I'd gather and share a few notes/thoughts:
•  The airport is a bit far away, but the express train is very convenient.
•  I'm amazed at the number of 7-Eleven, Burger King and McDonalds shops. More than cafes in Paris it seems.
•  I arrived late but still decided to have a short walk downtown, very pleasant. It's the kind of city where walking is "natural".
•  (really not Oslo-related) but why does every desk in a hotel room has to have a glass cover? Elegant but very mouse unfriendly :)
•  Norwegian TV is a mix of English and Norwegian. I understand having 8 millions inhabitants doesn't justify dubbing all movies and series like in other countries. Still, Norway seems to have a strong national identity and language (with no need for a "cultural exceptionalism").
•  Ground floor is called the 1st floor just like in most East-European countries.
•  Speakers are offered flowers after their talk, another "Slavic/Nordic" tradition I guess.
•  No power plug adapter needed for me (good, I really didn't think of taking one with me).

I'm looking forward to staying longer more next time around. Maybe JavaZone?
