Java News from Tuesday, July 4, 2006

CMP has posted the call for abstracts for Software Development 2007 West. The conference takes place March 19 - 23, 2007 in Santa Clara. Once again I'll be chairing the XML track. As well as the usual C++, Java, .NET, Security, Modeling & Design tracks. this year adds a complete track devoted to Ruby, and another track on web development. The latter is sort of a catch-all for AJAX, Web 2.0, PHP, JavaScript and and other web tech that isn't already addressed in one of the existing tracks. Submissions are due by August 11.

Polarion Software has posted the fourth release candidate of Subversive 1.0, a pure Java, open source Eclipse plug-in that provides Subversion integration. It's based on JavaSVN. Besides bug fixes, this RCcan make a tag or branch for multiple projects at once and adds commit templates. Pure Java is a nice touch, but right now Subclipse seems to do everything I need, and I don't feel a compelling need to switch.
