An Oracle blog about Java Technology

Sound bites from Silicon Valley - EclipseCon

Guest Author



Another week, another Java conference. EclipseCon was held earlier this week in Santa Clara and one of the highlights was the joint IBM/Oracle keynote with Oracle's Mark Reinhold and IBM's John Duimovich discussing the future of Java (7, 8 and 9) and common work in the OpenJDK project.



EclipseCon 2011

Other than the rather good press coverage, here are some not-so-random tidbits :

• Reinhold: "Twitter did not exist when last major JDK release shipped (2006)" (oracletechnet)

"Java 7 release date still July 28 2011" (ianskerrett)

• Duimovich of IBM: "IBM joined OpenJDK to drive innovation, collaboration, compatibility" (oracletechnet)

"The pace of innovation in the Java platform is going to get a lot better" (Mike Milinkovich)

Other JavaEE-related content included Sahoo's and Arun's "Developing OSGi-enabled Java EE Applications with GlassFish" tutorial (with full description and screencast), an update on Dali for Java EE 6, a session on the intersection between JPA, JAXB and JAX-RS and more.
