On Sunday evening, Oct. 2, at the JavaOne Open House,
welcomed and celebrated the 2011 Duke's Choice Award winners, all
talented developers who have demonstrated extreme innovation in the
creation of Java-powered applications.
Drum roll: And the winners are...
• Arquillian Project
- The Arquillian project simplifies integration testing for Java-based
applications. It provides an easy mechanism for developers to test
application code inside a remote or embedded container, or by
interacting as a client of the container.
• dooApp - Infiltrea
is an end-to-end solution, built with JavaFX and Java Platform,
Standard Edition (Java SE), designed for green building professionals
whose job is to measure the air tightness of buildings.
• Inductive Automation
- Ignition is a Java-based web application that includes a business
scorecard to integrate different manufacturing machines using a central
web-server. It creates systems that cover the full spectrum between
Human Machine Interface (HMI), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition
(SCADA) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES), enabling rapid project
development and deployment.
• Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) jHome
- A complete home automation API open-source for Glassfish/Java EE,
enabling developers to control anything in their homes such as lamps,
LED lights, and coffee machines.
• JFrog - JFrog's Artifactory
is the world's first binary repository manager. Built with the Content
Repository API for Java (JCR) specification, it is helping to change the
way developers build and manage software modules by delivering high
concurrency and unmatched data integrity.
- JRebel is a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) plug-in that enables Java
developers to instantly see any code change made to an application. It
allows developers to skip the build and redeploy phases and has
prevented 39 million redeploys.
• LMAX - The LMAX Disruptor
is a multi-threaded, open-source concurrent programming framework
designed for high-performance and low-latency transaction processing.
Part of LMAX's Java-based trading platform, the LMAX Disruptor replaces
and outperforms java.util.concurrent.ArrayBlockingQueue by up to 80
• Rockwell Automation
- Rockwell Automation is creating its next generation, Java-enabled HMI
device line of products that will allow for the automated communication
and exchange of data to factory floor lines.
• Sodbeans Project
- The Sodbeans Project is an open-source, NetBeans-based module suite
designed to enhance accessibility for the blind in modern programming
environments. The NetBeans module suite includes a new programming
language designed for ease-of-use, a text-to-speech engine designed to
make NetBeans compatible with screen readers on multiple platforms and a
number of features designed to make programming easier for the blind.
• The Netty Project
- The Netty Project is a Java-based new I/O (NIO) client server
framework that enables quick and easy development of network
applications. It greatly simplifies and streamlines network programming
such as TCP and UDP socket server.
Congratulations to all!
