I'll be snapping some pix later today on the floor so you can get a flavor of the proceedings.
As you have no doubt heard, Oracle has released Technology Previews of Oracle JDeveloper 11g and OC4J 11g, as well as a Developer Kit for Spring. (See this page for all downloads etc.) Great for getting started with Spring.
For those of you who like prognosticating about product strategy, Oracle also "unveiled" its vision (mixed-metaphor alert) for next-generation middleware, which is best described in this new white paper - the key aspect here being the Spring-like Service Component Architecture (SCA), which is designed to let architects focus on "assembling" composite applications through the representation of business logics as reusable components. In this model, entire services are abstracted as objects, vastly simplifying the design of SOA.
Thomas Kurian is finishing up his keynote and will certainly provide more details on this.
