In terms of the technical session our current thinking is we would like to describe the REST style (grounded in the Resource Oriented Architecture terminology), how it connects to the JAX-RS API, and how you code to that API in a series of logical steps (for example the Resource Oriented Architecture properties) to build an example. I think this would be better than lots of talk (cue hand waving) followed by a 5 to 10 minute demo. Intermixing these three things is a tricky balancing act but i think its worth the effort to better communicate about JAX-RS. We need to choose an example, if you have any ideas on what you would like to see, write a comment or send me some email.
In terms of the BOF i deliberately made the abstract "loose" and would like to drive the content based on feedback before or at the BOF. We can come up with some pre-prepared slides on the Jersey architecture, additional features, JAX-RS, and some demos but i would really like things driven by what developers want to see. So again if you have any ideas/requests write a comment or send me some email.
I have also been invited to present at Jazoon08 (and very much enjoyed Jazoon07 last year). I suspect we are going to reuse a lot of material that was prepared for JavaOne :-) but we will endeavor to improve it based on feedback we receive.
