JavaOne 2008 Wrapup


JavaOne 2008 is finally over ... 9th consecutive one for me and extremely busy as always!
And now let me talk about my formal speaking engagements (including the slides):
  • JavaU Bonus Evening Course on GlassFish Application Server - Shreedhar and I delivered a Bonus Evening Course on GlassFish in JavaU. We talked about GlassFish in depth - general overview, concepts, Metro Web services, dynamic languages support, high availability/clustering and lots of other details. The slides for the course are available here.

    Read more details in Shreedhar's Writeup.
  • GlassFish Unconference - Vivek and I led the "Scripting in GlassFish" session @ GlassFish Unconference and then I led the "Web services" session. It was very free-form forum, basically answering questions/clarifications from the participants and seeking feedback on our direction.

    It was great to know that people love Metro support in NetBeans and are some are using the IDE for that reason only.
  • Scripting in GlassFish (BOF 5111) - Vivek and I presented on "Scripting in GlassFish"and explained the support for different dynamic languages such as Ruby/Rails, Groovy/Grails, Python/Django on GlassFish. This preso showed bunch of demos including GlassFish v3 gem installation and deployment (screencast coming soon), GlassFish v3 Update Center, Rails Development/Deployment options, Groovy/Grails and Python/Django deployment. The slides are available here.

    You can find the latest information about support for different dynamic languages on glassfish-scripting.dev.java.net.
  • Lab 4530: Building Rich Web Applications with jMaki - Doris and I delivered Lab 4530: Building Rich Web Applications with jMaki. If you could not attend JavaOne, then you can follow the instructions at your own pace and download the entire lab.

    The complete material for all JavaOne 2008 Hands-on-Labs is available here. The material is pretty comprehensive and of high quality. I highly recommend refering to this material for sharpening your skills.
  • Tic Tac Tac @ General Session Keynote - I presented "Tic Tac Toe Demo" at General Session Keynote on Tuesday afternoon. This demo was a multi-player game developed in multiple scripting languages (Ruby, Groovy and Python) and their associated Web frameworks (Rails, Grails and Django) and all deployed on GlassFish v3 TP2. The main idea was to showcase multi-lingual support on GlassFish v3 and still able to use GlassFish features such as GlassFish Comet to push the events to browser. The entire source code for the demo will be released shortly and I'll announce the availability.

    You can watch the entire video here (starting at approx 1:10 into it). Hope you enjoy the War Games-esque look-and-feel. It was a keynote demo Hat-trick for me (jMaki/Phobos @ 2007, .NET Interoperability @ 2006. I'm happy to be labeled as "GlassFish Guy" :)
And then of course I met lots of others at the booth, in hallway/sessions/parties and elsewhere. I've taken few action items for generating new blogs/screencasts and they'll appear shortly on this blog.

I took lots of pictures through out the event and posted them regularly. They are all available here. A consolidated album is inlined:



Hope you had a great JavaOne and we were able to share our current roadmap and future plans with you successfully.
