In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

IBM Exec Slams Sun's JavaOne/SunNetwork Merger Plans
"If Sun Network merges in with JavaOne, will we all just be participants in a Sun infomercial?" asks Sutor

    "JavaOne was supposed to be an industry event where any Java vendor or user who wishes to attend can do so and be part of the Java community. There they can represent their own interests or learn about what the rest of the industry or the Java Community Process is doing, but it is not supposed to be a lot of people there to support and further Sun. We're there to support and further Java."

    That, anyway, is the view of IBM's Director of WebSphere Foundation Software as well as its Web services and SOA efforts, Bob Sutor.

    "I was rather disturbed by some news reports a couple of weeks ago that said that Sun is considering merging its Sun Network conference in with JavaOne 2005," Sutor wrote last week in an impassioned blog. "If Sun Network merges in with JavaOne, will we all just be participants in a Sun infomercial?"

    "Why would vendors pay the very hefty sponsorship fees to help Sun marketing?" Sutor wondered, out loud. "I'm not delusional in thinking that JavaOne isn't important to the Sun marketing organization and I know they spend a lot of money on it, so they get the right to be very visible. They even get to have keynotes where they bash other sponsors."

    "That said, they walk a fine line between keeping the focus on Java vs. Sun. Merging Sun Network with JavaOne would completely cross over the line toward making this an explicitly Sun event. At that point it becomes a lot less interesting as a community get-together."

    Sutor was careful to note that he believed the Java community will keep growing and growing. ("The sheer number of specs on JDocs shows the health of the Java world beyond the offical Java Community Process.) And he reiterated that IBM is firmly behind helping Java grow and grow into new areas.

    But on the matter of converging the two events, he was adamant. It is not a good idea. Sutor made a plea as follows:

    "This is my request to Sun: keep the community JavaOne and Sun-specific Sun Network conferences separate. From what I've read, Sun has not made a final decision. I urge you to err on the side of the community on this one."

    In contrast to we will all just be participants in one big IBM infomercial? ROFL!

    Who was it now that suggested the new slogan for JavaOne, fitting in nicely with Sun's other "Network" taglines, should be "JavaOne: The Network Is The Conference"

    I was quite surprised that Nokia spend most of its precious JavaOne keynote time to pitch the upcoming JSR 232 rather than their existing developer platforms and development tools.

    One thing J1 clearly reflected this time round was the buoyant state of wireless development - there were tons of related sessions and BOFs. In five years time, according to some, everyone will either be a "mobile developer" or they'll be out of a job and JavaOne seemed to take that on board this year.
