The JavaOne 2014 Rock Stars are Here!

The JavaOne team just announced the Rock Star speakers for JavaOne 2014. Not very surprisingly Java EE had a strong showing. That's very significant as the Rock Stars are based on attendee ratings. I am extremely humbled to join the very fortunate ranks this year. Having an insider view of JavaOne, I know exactly how selective JavaOne really is (it is by far the most selective Java conference in the world). For that reason to me every speaker at JavaOne is a star on their own...

JavaOne 2014: A Small Step in the Right Direction?

JavaOne 2014 San Francisco was held September 28 – October 2. I think this was a particularly good year for JavaOne in many ways and it's certainly been a privilege to try to do justice to the crucial role of Java EE track lead (a role I took on for the first time this year). I'd like to share my thoughts, observations and experiences at JavaOne 2014 from that perspective. We did a few things differently this year that seemed to have paid off fairly well. Besides helping...

MVC 1.0 (JSR 371) at JavaOne

In the early days... well... just a few weeks ago, the idea was to standardise MVC under the JAX-RS umbrella.  At that time, we didn't think to submit a JavaOne proposal for a dedicated MVC session. But since then, a lot of things has happened and MVC has now its own JSR (see here for some background).   Fortunately, we were able to squeeze, the the JavaOne schedule, a dedicated MVC 1.0 BoF. This BoF will be hosted by Manfred Riem who is leading this new specification with...
