Oracle Calls for JavaOne Papers

by Charles Humble on Feb 15, 2010 |

When Oracle announced its intention to take over Sun Microsystems last year rumour was rife that 2009 would be the last JavaOne. Many developers and journalists assumed that Oracle would fold JavaOne into its Oracle OpenWorld conference much as it did with BEA World when it purchased BEA in 2008. Indeed Tim Bray, then director of Web technologies at Sun Microsystems, tweeted at last year's conference "press room consensus: This is the last JavaOne".

For this year at least, however, whilst Oracle has decided to run the conference alongside Oracle OpenWorld, it remains a separate event. The dates are September 19-23, 2010 and according to the submissions website

This year, the conference curriculum is going back to its roots -- 100% Java technology and the related ecosystem.

The website also notes that the selection criteria will focus on selecting speakers who have subject matter expertise and speaking ability.

Speakers can submit to one of the following tracks:

  1. Core Java Platform
  2. Java SE and Desktop Java
  3. Java EE and Java for Enterprise Applications
  4. JavaFX and Rich User Experience
  5. Java ME and Mobile
  6. Java for Devices, Card, and TV
  7. The Java Frontier

The closing date for submissions is March 14, 2010.

For the first time Oracle is also intending to take JavaOne global with events planned in India and China.

100% Java excludes important topics by Paulo Merson


This year, the conference curriculum is going back to its roots -- 100% Java technology and the related ecosystem.

My first impression is that a 100% Java JavaOne is unfortunate. One of the great things about JavaOne was that you could attend talks about software architecture, cloud computing, SOA (including web services with .NET), Agile, UML, TDD, usability, etc.
