PastedGraphic 4Just a reminder: This event is tomorrow (Oct 22nd) – still time to register!  

Hear from Oracle, Volkswagen, Eurotech, Bosch, and Telit about Internet of Things benefits, challenges, and solutions – and, of course, the role Java Embedded plays in IoT.

Find more on my previous post.

Just wanted to direct your attention to Oracle’s Internet of Things (IoT) home page at oracle.com/iot. This is continuously being updated and is a great entry-point resource featuring:

  • Overview into Oracle’s IoT strategy and platform
  • Webcasts, Videos, Reports, and White Papers
  • Additional resources, articles, podcasts and more
  • Links to related content on Oracle.com and Oracle Technology Network (OTN)

While you’re there, check out the short video on the left “The Internet of Things: Managing the Complexity”

steve-harris.jpg Check out this interview with Steve Harris, Oracle’s Senior VP of Application Server Development, on Java in general and it’s role at Oracle, adapting to change, the JCP, Java ME and Java ME.next, Java EE 6, Glassfish, and cloud computing.

Nothing here should be shockingly new – it has been broadcast before in a number of ways, but the interview is a compact summary of Oracle’s current vision for Java.

OTN-TechCast.pngAjay Patel is Oracle’s VP of Product Development for Application Grid Products – and my boss ;-)

Tune in to watch a special OTN TechCast Live tomorrow, Tue Feb 15 @ 10 am PST and hear Ajay talk about the changes that have come to Java and Oracle since the Sun acquisition 12 months ago.

Just some interesting links I stumbled over during the last two weeks or so:

Al Hilwa: “Q & A: What’s Oracle-Google Lawsuit All About?”

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 …”

Just a quick note: Here is an interesting piece by Kay Glahn (ex-spec lead for JSR-249/MSA2) about Oracle’s vision for Java, in particular in the mobile and embedded space.

UPDATES:

I was tied up in meetings most of the day yesterday so part 3 of the news round-up comes a day late … apologies.

Today, I’d like to summarize the highlights around developer communities and developer engagement under the Oracle+Sun announcements. I am mainly referring to “Overview and Frequently Asked Questions for the Developer Community” published on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN), but I will be including additional information I have collected in the past few days.

Summary points:

  • Oracle has a long history of engaging with developers on many levels and this history will continue with respect to Sun’s developer communities
  • The Oracle Technology Network (OTN) is one of the industry’s largest developer communities for both Oracle technologies as well as other industry-standard technologies such as Java and Linux. It is similar to the Sun Developer Network (SDN) in that it binds together the technical end-user community as well as Oracle developers and managers.
  • OTN features events, news, blogs, articles, wikis, discussions/forums, webcasts, downloads, FAQs, and more across a wide range of technology aspects, including databases, middleware, developer tools, enterprise management, and applications. Specifically for Java, check out the Java Developer Center.
  • Many of Sun’s developer sites and communities will remain unchanged in the near future: The Sun Developer Network (SDN), java.sun.com, java.net, BigAdmin, NetBeans.org, and others continue to operate normally. Some may be redesigned and integrated into OTN in the future in communication with the developer community.
  • Oracle enthusiastically supports Sun’s user groups such as the Java User Groups (JUGs), OpenSolaris User Groups, Java Champions, and other Sun-related user groups and has already started to reach out to these groups.
  • Oracle will also continue the tradition of Java evangelists committed to developer outreach, events, and programs.
  • Oracle will continue to invest in the Sun Academic Initiative (SAI) and Java Education and Development Initiative (JEDI) as well as in student communities generally, although the programs may be modified somewhat or migrated over to the Oracle Academy. More details to be provided as they become available.
  • Certification programs for Sun technologies: Oracle is committed to provide comprehensive training and certification programs in Sun technologies and will honor exam vouchers purchased through Sun.

JavaOne 2010:

As reported before JavaOne 2010 will be co-located with Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco in the week of September 19. The call for papers (CFP) will go out shortly.

Sign up for the Oracle Developer Network (OTN):

Your SDN account will not be automatically migrated over to OTN. Sign up for a free account. Also, OTN features a number of regular publications such as the Java-related Dev2Dev Newsletter. Find more information here.

Cheers,

UPDATES:

This is part 2 of the Oracle+Sun News Round-Up. You can find part 1 here. Part 3 comes tomorrow.

Today I focus on the Oracle’s Java Developer Tools Strategy Webcast with Ted Farrell, Chief Architect and Senior Vice President of Tools and Middleware at Oracle.

Talking points in the webcast:

  • Oracle’s motto is “Productivity with Choice”, meaning developers can pick the environment and tools they want – Oracle supports these choices of implementation technologies, development styles, platforms and databases, and IDEs
  • Oracle’s main Java development tools today are JDeveloper / Oracle ADF as well as Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse
  • NetBeans will be offered as additional choice in the developer tools suite, complementing JDeveloper and Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and leveraging functionality between these tools
  • Hudson, Sun’s Continuous Integration Server, will move forward with increased investment and continue to be offered
  • Zembly has been discontinued by Sun in Nov 2009
  • Kenai is Sun’s hosted collaboration server. Oracle plans to discontinue the public interface of Kenai at this time and bring Kenai back in-house, add features, and leverage it for internal projects. Kenai may be brought back as a public offering later if appropriate.
  • NetBeans aims to be the best Java IDE, and will focus on Java and JavaFX technologies for EE, SE, and ME/mobile Java, as well as the NetBeans platform
  • Oracle will turn to and invest in the NetBeans community for additional features such as dynamic languages, plug-ins, etc.
  • NetBeans.org stays the same – the place for participation, plug-ins, platform, dialog, support, etc.
  • No short-term changes planned to NetBeans Partner Programs
  • Licensing/support/maintainance: No licenses will change. NB 6.7 and earlier follows Sun support policy. NB 6.8 follows Oracle support policies – better policy with more choices
  • New collaboration resource: Oracle Technology Network (OTN), and specifically the Java Technology Center, featuring events, news, blogs, articles, discussions/forums, webcasts, downloads, FAQs, and more
  • Events: Oracle OpenWorld/Develop, OTN Developer Days, user group events, and more. See the OTN site.
  • JavaOne: Continues as open community event for Java, co-located with Oracle Open World in San Francisco (Sep 19-23, 2010), plus taking JavaOne on the road to Brazil, Russia, India, China

That wraps up Ted’s webcast. Part 3 of the Oracle+Sun: Java News Round-Up follows tomorrow.

Cheers,

– Terrence
