Oracle Open World / Java One 2010 Brazil Day 1 Trip Report
Oracle Open World 2010 Latin America was kick started this morning by Oracle's President href="http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/Executives/mark-hurd-170533.html">Mark Hurd. Later href="http://www.oracle.com/br/javaonedevelop/en/javaone-keynotes-en-179737-ptb.html">Adam Messinger's (Vice President in Fusion Middleware group at Oracle) keynote started JavaOne Brazil and gave a status update on the Java platform. In his talk, Staffan showed a demo of JRockit Mission Control. TIM (a local Brazilian telecom company) showed how they are using Java to serve multi-million users in Brazil. Java FX super fast rendering capabilities were shown in a video. I showed how a multi-instance GlassFish 3.1 cluster can be easily created using web-based administration console. The steps to reproduce the demo are explained in the video below:
I accidentally left my tweetdeck open before the demo machines were locked and so tweets were popping all through out the demo. The attendees seem to had a good laugh at that :-)
The three Technical General Sessions by Danny Coward, Jerome Dochez, and Greg Bollela dig deeper into Java SE, Java EE, and Mobile/Embedded platforms. Jerome's talk showed a typical 3-tier application that allows the user to monitor twitter trends for pre-defined hashtags. More details about the application and downloadable code are href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/java_ee_6_twitter_demo">available here.
This is not meant to offend anybody but just to show culutral shift obvious due to the geography. And yes, I took permissions from each of the models before taking their picture :-)
Here is another fun activity performed on the exhibitor floor:
Looking forward to href="http://blogs.sun.com/arungupta/entry/java_ee_6_glassfish_javaone">Java EE & GlassFish sessions tomorrow and day after.
