Java at Oracle Open World
By octav on Oct 01, 2009
Oracle Open World is approaching fast and the Java team is signed up to present a few sessions and give a few demos. There are a few new highlights since Java One (June '09). First of all the Java Store, while still in beta, is completely redesigned. Second the Authoring Tool for JavaFX seems to be ready for the Early Access program. You'll also see JavaFX on a few handheld devices, also on a TV.
If you end up attending the Oracle Develop portion of the conference, I highly recommend the "Intro to JavaFX ..." session by Richard Bair and Stuart Marks. You'll get to meet the cool folks that are building this extension of the platform, get some details on the upcoming release of the platform, the obligatory demos, etc.
