National Treasure should have been hidden using Java Card

After a stressful month of JavaOne, I am on vacation :) for a week and enjoying watching movies, and, Playing Super Mario Galaxy on Wii. The good thing about this vacation is - my wife has NO vacation, and, she is working :). My 52"" HD TV is all mine for this week, no competition. 

Just watched National Treasure 2 - Book of Secrets. I wonder if Java Card was used to hide these treasures, would the team be able to break it without having the Card? I should be saying IMPOSSIBLE, because ....................... I am working on Java Card ;-)

What the team might be doing? Let me guess .............. Create a card with just the gold contacts, connect wires to iPhone (?), and, just open the door by turning the iPhone. Its Hollywood, anything is possible. If you have seen the movie, you know what I am talking about. See how Riley hacks into buckingham palace :) -- Is it really that simple?

JavaOne 2008 Recap (3)

On Friday May 9th, JC3Bot contest was played in James Gosling's keynote. The two robots were played from two Java Card 3.0 Prototype cards. Winner was declared right there and he got the PS3 :). Laurent from Gemalto is there in the picture along with 2 final contestants, and, the other person is well known to every one :)

 

This was a great thing. Congratulations and Thanks to all Sun employees who worked on the Java Card 3.0 Reference Implementation, and preparing materials for Java One, and, all Gemalto team for making the prototype cards available for the attendees.

JavaOne 2008 Recap (2)

I gave a Technical Session in JavaOne with my colleague Bela Gangal, and, Eric VĂ©tillard of Trusted Labs. This is my first ever session in my life :). I guess we did fine. We demonstrated NetBeans plug-in at the end of the session.

 Me speaking

There were mostly JavaEE people. A few who knows Java Card. I think all the sessions will be available on the net very soon along with audio. If interested what Java Card 3 is all about, don;t forget to check out the material for "TS5940 Getting Started with Java Card 3.0 Platform".
 

JavaOne 2008 Recap (1)

It was really a hectic week. Didn't get time to blog while JavaOne is going on. Had to go to Mascone Center 2 days before JavaOne started :( to do the final round of testing. All the hard work is paid off. It definitely was a success event for Java Card 3. There was enough crowd participating in JC3Bot contest.

I am sure that the idea of Running Web Application from the card definitely raised some interest. If you missed this event, please go and check http://java.sun.com/javacard/contest page to download the Java Card Development kit. Hurry, it won;t be available after few days. This release is special for JavaOne event.
