JavaOne 2009 - two hands on lab accepted

That's great news (at least for me). They accepted two of two proposals for hands-on lab that I submitted. That's the best result that I've ever achieved ;) If you are curious what happened to your proposals for sessions or BOFs then please note that this are hands-on labs(HOL). The HOLs proposals can be submitted only by SUNs employees and the acceptance process is little bit different than in case of sessions and BOFs. I'm looking forward if any of the sessions that we submitted will be accepted too.

The proposals:
  • Save Your Time : Build Quickly Apps With RCP - (Lukas Hasik, Jiri Rechtacek) - In this hands-on lab we will show you how you can easily port an existing Swing application into an application based on NetBeans RCP/Platform. Then we will enhance existing functionality of the application with set of features that would be hard to implement on your own but are provided by the platform. The result of the session will be cool professionally-looking and easily extensible application that demonstrates the main APIs of the NetBeans Platform.
  • Touch your application! - Building slick, touch-enabled UI for Java ME - (Lukas Hasik, Karol Harezlak) - During this hand-on lab participants will learn about challenges and problems in every day UI development for Java ME for touch screen based devices. This hand-on lab will also explain architecture the Rich SVG UI widgets. The Rich SVG UI touch enabled library helps to speed up process of designing slick and modern UI for touch screen devices. During this hand-on lab we are going to discuss most common scenarios for this type of UI development illustrated by source code examples as well as UI screen shots and schemas. At the end of the hands-on lab the attendees can take the application home in their phones. As the Rich SVG UI widgets supports also devices without touch screen the application will work on most of the devices with SVG API for J2ME(JSR226).

There is lot of work on these HOLs as they are bright new ones based on latest features in NetBeans IDE. Another thing is if there will be money for the trip to California.

Congratulations, that's really great news, looking forward to those HOLs!

Thanks Toni. And congratulations, your HOL with Geertjan was accepted too, afaik. The topic looks interesting - "Adding Some Oomph to Java VisualVM"

Yeah, Geertjan informed that it was accepted. That's great, since it's another NB Platform related topic :-).
