JavaOne 2011 Wish List

  1. Technical content was great - just keep it - impossible to improve. I attended at JavaOne 2010 as many sessions as possible, there were no product pitches - just good technical content.
  2. Location - don't keep it. Either back to Moscone, or find another cool location (a huge cinema?). Because of Separation of Concerns, Loose coupling to OOW would be great. Some Oracle Develop sessions, however, were really interesting as well.
  3. Appreciation Event was great - I would prefer to attend BoFs. The best BoFs in the past took place during the "After The Dark Event". There should be a choice between party and content.
  4. A "Java Is Cool / Cutting Edge etc." keynote with cool apps, devices, services etc. from the field would be great.
  5. I would appreciate a keynote with Scott McNealy, John Gage, James Gosling, Bill Joy or guys like Bruno Souza - why not together with Larry Ellison :-) JavaOne 2009 keynote worked really well.
  6. Put a Sun logo on the JavaOne t-shirts, e.g.: :-)

BUT: thanks Oracle for organizing JavaONE! I guess it wasn't easy in 2010...


I attended a lot of web service security related sessions at JavaOne 2010 and found all of them (or most) to be astronaut high level product pitches for middleware. I was really disappointed by those sessions because I was expecting to learn specific details about securing JAX-WS and JAX-RS without additional middleware. Next time I'll need to better diversify which sessions I attend instead of attending so many sessions on the same topic. Maybe go with a plan to learn about new things I know nothing about rather than with a particular thing in mind such as web service security.

The atmosphere of the Moscone center used to be electric, but I didn't feel that at the new location. Even though the appreciation event was awesome, I think I'd prefer JavaOne to be held at the Moscone center the week before or week after OOW.

I attended some JAX-RS talks -> they were really good.

JAX-WS was always very high level on slides, and very complicated in code :-)

+1 regarding Moscone,

Hi Adam,

Was on a call with Oracle community reps and the JUG leaders discussing JavaOne. _Nothing_ is finalised yet but Oracle are definitely seriously looking into JavaOne as a separate event from OW and having a new venue/time.

I guess it's watch and wait!
