My second full day started with me waking up and realising that I was supposed to meet my friend Tejas Joshi (co-author of the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Handbook) at the station in 20 minutes! Needless to say I didn’t make it, but then I felt better later when I found out he had caught the wrong shuttle bus and ended up at the airport instead of the BART!
The morning was spent in the Authors Seminar arranged to give authors a whirlwind tour of Oracle Product updates and strategy plans. It was useful to see what was happening in areas I knew little or nothing about. In the afternoon I wandered around Java One, a very different show to OpenWorld with much more bleeding edge stuff and just plain blue sky thinking. Of course who couldn’t love a show with a full size Duke wondering around and available for photographs.
Attended a presentation on a highly available Weblogic JMS environment wich did a great job of laying out to architect a highly available solution.
Dinner with customers and then collapsed exhausted into bed!
