A quick note:
The Java Spotlight Podcast Episode 5 was posted last Friday: An interview with Bruno Souza and Fabiane Nardon, Brazilian Java Champions on the Brazilian open source scene, the Open JDK Manifesto, and JavaOne 2010.
After a bit of a hiatus from the 92 episodes of the Java Mobility Podcast, Roger Brinkley and I are back at it again! And as part of the broader Java Evangelism team at Oracle we’re upleveling the scope of the podcast to encompass the whole breath of Java, including Java EE, SE, ME, JavaFX, and more.
We’re keeping the popular format of the show – news, a feature segment or interview, and “What’s Cool” but we’re increasing the depth of the news section by adding a revolving cast of Java All-Stars – folks from the evangelist team and others at Oracle who specialize on specific technology areas and can add their unique knowledge and insight.
The first 2 episodes are already live:
An Interview with Mark Reinhold, Chief Java Architect, Java Platform Group on the future of Java SE.
An Interview with Steve Harris, Senior VP of Application Server Development on the Java Enterprise Edition, Glassfish, and integrating Sun into Oracle.
Joining us every week is a changing panel of Java All Stars such as Dalibor Topic (Java free and open source software ambassador), Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine (Java EE Evangelist), and others.
I hope you like the new show. And we have a great line-up of topics and interviews in the pipeline for the next couple of shows already … So, stay tuned!
Apple has recently announced that it would prefer if someone else were to continue the development of the JDK for Mac OS X. As Apple’s own JDK is mature and well-integrated, we would love to see Apple contributing the source code of the existing JDK for Mac OS X to the OpenJDK BSD Port project (http://openjdk.java.net/projects/bsd-port).

Here’s today’s breaking news:
Here’s a link to the The Aquarium, with more references and reactions.
Update: More context by Bob Sutor

And if you’re into Rich Internet Applications, check out Stephen Chin’s JavaOne Expert RIA Track.
As posted before I will be doing at least two sessions this year. Just wanted to alert you so reserve your spot via the JavaOne Schedule Builder as rooms are smaller this year and may fill up quickly:
- S314178: Beyond Smartphones: Rich Applications and Services for the Mobile Masses (Monday, 11:30 am, Hilton Yosemite B)
- S314184: Java Mobile & Embedded Community: Meetup and What’s New (Tuesday, 6:00 pm, Hilton Yosemite C)
I am currently putting the finishing touches on a new webinar titled “Advanced User Interfaces for Mass-Market Phones with LWUIT”. The webinar content will roughly parallel my LWUIT article published a few weeks ago, but with additional information on LWUIT 1.4, more coding demos, and a live Q & A session.
So mark your calendars for September 16. I will follow up with more information and the webinar link here on this blog once I have the details.
Just some interesting links I stumbled over during the last two weeks or so:
Osvaldo Pinali Doederlein: “Android = Java”
Andreas Constantinou: “Is Android Evil?”
Jason Hiner: “The dirty little secret about Google Android”
Wall Street Journal: “Google and the Search for the Future”
James Gosling: “Some more comments …”
I’ve been busy lately with various preparations for JavaOne. But I managed to find some cycles and write an article on LWUIT 1.3 and some of the new features now available in the open source repository, such as the new UI controls, the HTML component, and more. Code included!
“Rich Applications for Billions of Devices: What’s New in LWUIT?” is now posted on SDN, java.sun.com, and java.net.
