First Day of JavaOne

The first day of JavaOne was pretty exciting. Sun made a number of announcements during the keynote, a few that interested me including:
Also, during the technical session there were some demos of NASA's World Wind project which were quite impressive.

On a personal note, what is now JavaFX Script was formerly called F3 and was developed by Chris Oliver who I worked with at SeeBeyond. I had the opportunity to review much of his early work with F3 and actually had a hand in the naming of it (he called it Form Follows Function and I suggested F\^3 or F-cubed which became F3) so I'm a bit sad to see the name lost but very excited to see what he has done getting more exposure. Do take a look as I think you'll see that it does simplify UI development in Java.

All in all, a pretty good day!
