    JavaOne 2014 | Sep 28 – Oct 2, 2014 | San Francisco

    October 2nd, 2014



    Welcome on board: Andres Almiray, Dierk König, Hendrik Ebbers, Ixchel Ruiz and Michael Heinrichs. Our featured speakers will soon be seated in the plane on their way to San Francisco. Their luggage includes 16 talks for JavaOne 2014 – three more than last year. Right now all five are busy with their final preparations.

    What can you look forward to? Check out our talk overview below or take a look at our speakers’ promotional videos.

    And by the way: Andres Almiray will again be leading the JavaOne Hackergarten (last year Codegarten). The name is the only thing that has changed – as before it is a community event with open-source philosophy.

    JavaOne Final Remarks

    October 8th, 2012

    JavaOne 2012 was sursprisingly good. The keynotes were mostly down to earth, less show than in earlier years. Compared to the first 10 years of JavaOne there were again considerably less attendants (remember the > 20000 attendants in 2001?). However, Java is definitely back on track after a bumpy ride during the last years of Sun Microsystems and after the takeover by Oracle. I do not expect many innovations in the Java world, it’s a mature ecosystem and rather needs a careful evolution.

    JavaFX was very prominent in the desktop tracks. Version 2 is definitely the right approach for replacing Swing and provides a highly capable desktop UI toolkit. There were a number of impressive demos showing off what can be achieved with JavaFX. In the mobile realm Java has lost the race, though. I cannot imagine how Java ME can ever compete against iOS and Android. Hence, Oracle is focusing on the embedded domain with Java ME, which is a smart move. The enterprise backend is definitely Java’s stronghold. It is so well entrenched that investment protection is the most important constraint with any changes or additions to Java EE.

    Maybe I was just lucky, but most of the presentations I attended were above average. It rarely got boring, and an occasional lack of presentation skills was usually compensated by strong technical content. Only the conference venue was not up to my expectations (same complaint as two years ago). Most presentations took place in the Hilton hotel which is a maze and the rooms are not well suited for a conference (there is a reason why most of the rooms are named * ballroom). The Moscone convention center would be far better (as in earlier years of the JavaOne) but Oracle requires it now for the way more crowded Oracle OpenWorld.
