In March we ran a developer update in London which focused on Sun's Java Technology, JavaFX, NetBeans IDE, GlassFish, OpenSolaris and Sun Studio. The keynote presentation was given by James Gosling - "The Father of Java" which talked about Java - Where we're heading....
In addition to James there were presentations from Simon Ritter on JavaFX and an update on Java SE 7, as well as Steve Elliott talking about Java EE and the server side
So if you want to hear the views of the Father of Java, or get more detail on JavaFX, Java EE or Java SE you can look at all the videos of the presentations here. You can also get details of the current JavaFX Coding Challenge.

Sun is a founding member of the Internet Protocol for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance that was declared as one of Time magazine’s "Best Inventions of 2008"!!
What is the IPSO Alliance?
It is a group of high-tech companies, both vendors and users who
endorse the use of existing Internet Protocol (IP) protocols for connecting
'smart' objects and delivering information to and from those objects.
The aim of the Alliance is to
create a better understanding of IP and include understanding the industries
and markets where IP-based Smart Objects can have an effective role in growth
and organizing services.
What are “Smart Objects?
To quote…“Smart Objects are (any) objects in the physical world that - typically with the help of embedded devices - transmit information about their condition or environment (e.g., temperature, light, motion, health status) to locations where the information can be analyzed, correlated with other data and acted upon. Applications range from automated and energy-efficient homes and office buildings, factory equipment maintenance and asset tracking to hospital patient monitoring and safety and compliance assurance.”
Essentially a smart object can include any device/ anything that is network addressable.
