Year of the store - Java Store

As usual, the picture tells the story, for more details, read below ...

The Chinese zodiac calls 2009 as the year of the rat. I'll argue that in the tech world it has been the year of the store (Nokia, Samsung, Microsoft, Google, etc.). The Java team has recently released a new UI of the Java Store client. The interface is written in JavaFX and the backend services are running on an Enterprise GlassFish deployment. Folks that want to get a better idea of what the store does and the developer angle (value proposition) should watch this excellent video.

Jeff and I were going to do this a long time ago even before the fruit.
