Java News from Saturday, May 10, 2008

I missed JavaOne this year, but from what I'm reading it doesn't sound like I missed all that much. No Java 7. JavaFX still being pitched as the next big thing. Threads are important. Closures good! Closures bad! Blah. Blah. Blah. Sounds like a repeat of last year's show. Did anything new happen? Maybe Java has grown too large to change significantly in just one year. Should JavaOne be biennial? Or maybe we should just attend every other year. Here's a thought: how about moving Javaone to the East Coast or Europe every other year so even if it's the same story, different people will attend?
