JavaOne BoF Special

A special from our BoF at JavaOne. Rough coverage of the news from JavaOne (or at least the big items), plus some industry news important enough to make it in. Mainly just having a good time and enjoying the fact that people can talk back for once.

If you can make it, please join us for the post JavaOne analysis on Tuesday May 15th at Verisign. You must register to join in the fun (otherwise Verisign won't let you in), but there will be beer, pizza and prizes including one SunSpot pack (3 sunspots) which is an awesome door prize (and about $600ish value as well). To find out more and register, please take a look at

Fully formatted shownotes can always be found at
