The 2006 version of the JavaOne Conference finished its run with a number of Calls to Action aimed at Java developers.

As about 14,000 attendees departed this year’s JavaOne Conference, they were encouraged to join projects and get involved with open source efforts.

With around 5 million Java developers around the globe, the proponents of JavaOne suggested the community join the Java Community Process Program, the Sun Developer Network, and also the Java Net collaboration site.

They also would like to see more Java developers in the NetBeans community trying out projects like Profiler, Mobility, and Matisse. Those and the Sun Java Studio Creator represent just a few of the Java projects in the open source community.

The conference wrapup article by Jon Byous also summarized sessions from some of the major tech firms supporting Java:

BEA’s general session included their Blended Strategy approach to enterprise development and new opportunities in Session Initiation Protocol (SIP), Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), and EJB 3.0.

Oracle’s general session told attendees about key technologies they see as vital to the Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm: JavaServer Faces (JSF) for building user interfaces; Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (EJB 3.0) for building business logic; and Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) for mapping business process flow. They also talked tools and offerings, pledging to provide a variety of free tool offerings.

The IBM general session showed us ways to hit projected software delivery dates with precision and quality the Eclipse way.

Attendees at the Motorola general session learned of Motorola’s new MOTODEV developer program, designed to build a broad business and developer ecosystem that will speed the pace of innovation while creating new business channels and revenue streams. They really want to make it easer for you to make better, broadly compatible mobile applications and more money from them.


After they get home, attendees who wish to check out the Presentation PDFs can do so online. For instance, the Java Persistence API session presented by Sun and Oracle may be downloaded in its 65-page full-color glory.

Sessions held later in the conference that are not available yet for download, and will be available, should be online by mid-June.
