JVM Language Summit inspiration


It's hard to believe that the JVM Language Summit is only a year old, and the recent second iteration appears to have been a great success.

Hopefully soon you'll be able to watch the talks online, like last year's, but in the meantime all the talk materials are online, and there are some home video style vignettes here. For a concise written summary, take a look at these short summaries of day one, day two, and day three. All the LOLs and OMGs are archived here. Organizer and JSR 292 lead John Rose was inspired by the Greats, even as sartorial inspiration was reportedly in shorter supply.

As you will hear on the Java Posse, language success comes with great responsibility: Noop take heed. This new language (No-awp) for the JVM (or the idea of one) was introduced; the dust is still settling as to whether this year's Fan is going to storm the developer world, or just its own coffee cup.

Hi Danny,

I have a JavaFX related idea I'd like to run by you. What would it take to make JavaFX Script(the language) be the next-gen replacement for JSF/JSP in the JEE stack? Before you say absolutely not, think about: It's a declarative language which is what JSF/JSP are, but much, much nicer at that since it does not use that ugly, painful on the eyes XML markup syntax that the others are based on. And on top of that you get all the great features that come with the language: the power, the expressiveness, the binding, the ease with which you can mix logic/functional code. Features that JSF/JSP would really die for, and the reason why you see all these web frameworks in conjunction with any JSP/F based apps. Plus JavaFX Script is already open source, so no problem there. What do you think?
