JavaOne 2008

I spent last week at JavaOne in San Francisco. Although there were many interesting sessions, I found it even more interesting to be at the Java DB booth and talk to users and fellow developers who popped by. The general impression was that the users were very happy with Java DB/Apache Derby, especially that it was so easy to get it up and working. Not surprisingly, the most frequently requested feature was support for LIMIT and OFFSET in SQL. (Yes, I did tell them about the ROW_NUMBER function, but because of the current limitations of the implementation and the more verbose syntax, it didn't quite match what they wanted.)

Also, many of our new colleagues from MySQL visited us at the Java DB booth. The picture below shows Geir Høydalsvik (left) welcoming Mårten Mickos to the Java DB team. Mårten, we're still waiting for your first patch! :)
