Brief Summary of JavaOne 2008 KeyNote TechnologiesBy Angsuman Chakraborty, Gaea News Network
Tuesday, May 6, 2008
The keynote was centered around JavaFX, Sun’s solution for creating rich interactive internet applications with immersive user interface. Sun’s value proposition is ubiquitousness of JavaFX on mobile platform and internet enabled devices.
In any case it is an extremely cool technology which was well demonstrated with the multiple simultaneous HD video rendering example. I only concern will be Sun’s ability to convert people away from existing solutions.
Project Hydrazine (or Project Destination, make up your mind already!) is a “end-to-end platform architecture that enables connectivity and orchestration of multiple services provided by operators and third parties in order to deliver personalized and contextually-based services. Project Destination with Java technology enables developers to rapidly create new services for all the multiple Java-enabled devices already prevalent in the market.”
