Sun Systems Management Demo

Steve Stelting has a great note over at the Sun Connection blog about the demo his team constructed to show off our management products in a booth at JavaOne.  I got to see the demo during the show, and it was quite impressive.  Steve's posting includes a bunch of screen shots so you can get an idea what it looked like.  JavaOne is really a developer show (not focused on SysAdmins), but the demo does show how these products fit into a development life cycle and the booth got a large amount of traffic.  You should go check it out.

Finished Up JavaOne

Well, I'm all finished up with JavaOne for this year.  It's still going strong, but I've had to get back to work.  Being focused on Admins and not Developers means I can't spend the whole week up in San Fracisco playing at the show.  However, it's always great to see old friends.

 

Aside from my friend Duke, I got to see a number of folks from the JDK and NetBeans teams where I spent my early career at Sun.  It was especially good to see a bunch of folks from my old Java Performance team.  It seems like they're still doing great.  I got to see a bunch of the NetBeans folks, but I seem to have missed seeing my friend Trung (the NetBeans architect and one of Sun's newest Distinguished Engineers).

While it was good to see all the things going on at JavaOne, I did manage to get some real work done this week.  Oren and I had some good meetings with analysts, and in particular a fun conversation with some of the guys from RedMonk about our coming Systems Management and Connected Systems functionality.  These guys (and Oren!) are all into Twitter.  I haven't figured that out yet, but perhaps I'll have to try it to keep up with the Joneses.

I think this will be a great year for Java, so I'm looking forward to next year's J1.

JavaOne One Minute Video

A super-quick, mini, video tour of JavaOne.  Complete with cameo appearances from a few folks on the Sysnet team. With all the new real time Java work, there is a lot of push here on robotics (very cool).  There is also a complete Sun Black Box and Java on the client is back in a big way with JavaFX.  One of the best JavaOne conferences I've attended in years!

For those of you who could make it to the show, enjoy!
