After that it was time for the JavaOne Technical General Session (Tuesday, 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm) with Roberto Chinnici and Mark Reinhold.
Mark gave a very entertaining overview about Java since the beginning and showed some details about whats floating around the internet these days and is know as Plan B. Oracle is commited to Java. They are delivering 7 and 8 in early 2011 and late 2012. Seems as if we are finally back on something we can call a release cycle.
After that it was Robertos stage. He talked about Java EE 6. To be honest .. stuff that is a year old now. But again, he surprised us with some future insights about Java EE. Arun Gupta joined the stage and showed his great Twitter Java EE 6 demo.
The next thing to do was to attend fellow ACED Björn and Thorsten's Session about SOA and whatever. I promised to be there and it was quite entertaining. All this was followed by a great community evening where I had the pleasure to chat with Sebastian Meyen from the German Java-Magazin. That was nice.
