Oracle Open World 2010 Latin America was kick started this morning by Oracle’s President Mark Hurd. Later Adam Messinger‘s (Vice President in Fusion Middleware group at Oracle) keynote started JavaOne Brazil and gave a status update on the Java platform. In his talk, Staffan showed a demo of JRockit Mission Control. TIM (a local Brazilian telecom company) showed how they are using Java to serve multi-million users in Brazil. Java FX super fast rendering capabilities were shown in a video. I showed how a multi-instance GlassFish 3.1 cluster can be easily created using web-based administration console. The steps to reproduce the demo are explained in the video below:
I accidentally left my tweetdeck open before the demo machines were locked and so tweets were popping all through out the demo. The attendees seem to had a good laugh at that
The three Technical General Sessions by Danny Coward, Jerome Dochez, and Greg Bollela dig deeper into Java SE, Java EE, and Mobile/Embedded platforms. Jerome’s talk showed a typical 3-tier application that allows the user to monitor twitter trends for pre-defined hashtags. More details about the application and downloadable code are available here.
And now day 1 pictures from Oracle Open World, Oracle Develop, and JavaOne 2010 in Brazil …
Come by and meet us at the Java EE 6 booth in the JavaOne exhibitor floor. I reached little bit late to the OTN party but the place was totally rocking with the community.
This is Brazil so here is a sample of “booth models” at the exhibitor floor …
This is not meant to offend anybody but just to show culutral shift obvious due to the geography. And yes, I took permissions from each of the models before taking their picture
Here is another fun activity performed on the exhibitor floor:
I enjoyed meeting Vinicius Senger, Yara Senger, Daniel deOliveira, Sven Reimers, Eduardo Lima, and several other Java community members.
And finally the evolving photo album so far:
