Oracle calls for JavaOne papers

Potential presenters have until March 14 to submit their proposals

Oracle has issued a call for papers for a rescheduled JavaOne conference, to be held this year alongside Oracle OpenWorld, Sept. 19-23, in San Francisco.

Potential presenters have until March 14 to submit their proposals.

When Oracle announced that it would acquire Sun Microsystems last year, speculation ran rampant over whether Oracle would continue to have JavaOne, given Oracle's proclivity to minimize the number of conferences it holds.

After acquiring BEA Systems in 2008, for instance, Oracle folded BEA World into its Oracle OpenWorld.

"[P]ress room consensus: This is the last JavaOne," Tim Bray, co-creator of XML and then director of Web technologies at Sun Microsystems, tweeted at the JavaOne 2009 conference, held last June.

Since the conference's inception, JavaOne has been held in San Francisco's Moscone Center. Last year, the convention center blocked off June 22-25 for the 2010 conference, though after the acquisition announcement, Sun balked on calling for papers.

During Jan. 27 webcasts announcing the finalization of the acquisition, however, Oracle officials stated that the company plans to continue supporting the conference, which would be held this year alongside OpenWorld, though kept as a separate event.

"This year, the conference curriculum is going back to its roots --100 [percent] Java technology and the related ecosystems," the Web site for submissions states, noting that the selection criteria will focus on selecting speakers who have subject matter expertise and speaking ability.

Presenters can submit in one of seven tracks: The Java Core Platform, Java SE and Desktop Java, Java EE and Java for Enterprise Applications, JavaFX and Rich User Experience, Java ME and Mobile, the Java Frontier and Java for Devices, Card and TV.

"They do appear to be doing right by the Java development community in wanting to concentrate on the technology and not the [product] pitches," said Navigenics Java developer Dick Wall, a co-host of the JavaPosse podcast, in the recent edition of the audio newscast. Wall had served on three selection committees for prior JavaOnes.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
