Glassfish v3

Glassfish V3 session was led by Jerome Dochez. Glassfish has a groundbreaking architecture based on IoC, modules and maven 2. Goal of v3 is to break v2 apart into modules. Jerome gave us a demo of v3 which, WOW, starts in less then 700 ms. v3 uses modules and you load what you need. In this demo on html pages can be served(web-apps). So how do we do this ??? Module Subsystem : HK2 It fits in 50Kb : Hundred Kilobytes Kernel 4 containers today (web-app, php, phobos, ruby) It is embeddable. It is so small that it could run in a cell phone. Available today in preview.

AJAX performance on IE vs Firefox

Presenter was Dave Johnson from Nitobi www.nitobi.com He brought up some interesting performance notes for AJAX. Note for IE (Better to worse performance) HTML SOAP XML JSON FIrefox (Better to worse performance/Interesting its reverse of IE) JSON XML SOAP HTML Firefox tends to outperform IE from Dave's presentation.

Linux vs Solaris

Ian Murdock was the presenter for the Linux vs. Solaris session. Great insigh. He has been brought on board by Sun to make Solaris more compatible with Linux end user. Some of Ian' points... Installation Solaris must support the devices developers use. That would be laptops. Laptops can be the most difficult due to the extreme differences in hardware. User environment The Linux user cannot find their favorite tools like GNU. The start bar is the wrong place. The user environments needs to be more familiar for the Linix user. Compatibility Universes let you select the tools you want to use(ie. GNU tools). Solaris could accomplish this easily with zones. Packaging How to get more stuff. Downloading new applications via apt-get is easy with Linux. Sun needs to bring the same ease to Solaris. One of Linux's biggest minus is backwards compatibility accordling to Ian. Solaris guarantees backwards compatibility.

Community One Opening Session

Tim O'reilly hosted the opening session today at CommunityOne. CommunityOne is about expanding the open source community. Tim's presentation hit on topics such as it is no longer about "Intel inside". It is more like "data inside". With the emergence of web 2.0 technologies, todays web is all about bringing communities together. But it is about harnessing the power of the data that these users bring together. Tim brought a panel together that included Rich Green, Ian Murdock and Tim Bray. They discussed various topics including compensation for participants in projects in the open source community. CommunityOne hosts a variety of sessions topics that includes Ajax, Netbeans, JRuby, Glassfish and OpenSolaris/Ubuntu/Nexenta.

Wow this place has become dusty...

Look for some updates this week from JavaOne and CommunityOne. I am dusting off this place for hopefully some cool news from the west coast.
