Yes, there will be a JavaOne this year.
During Oracle's "Oracle + Sun Strategy Update" talk at the
company's conference center in Redwood Shores, Calif.,
Oracle President Charles Phillips announced that JavaOne would be held Sept. 19
to 23 in San Francisco.
JavaOne is the largest annual convention for Java developers, previously put
on by Sun Microsystems and now by Oracle. The event has been going on since
Phillips said the annual JavaOne event will be co-located with the annual Oracle OpenWorld
However, JavaOne will continue to be its own event.
In addition, he said Oracle will extend JavaOne into new countries,
When Oracle announced its plans to acquire Sun
for $7.4 billion last April,
Java developers began to speculate about whether or not JavaOne 2009 would be
the last for the long-running event. But Phillips said Oracle is committed to
investing in the Java platform and continuing to support Java developers.
JavaOne, traditionally a late spring or early summer event, will now be a
fall event. As both JavaOne and Oracle OpenWorld tend to draw huge crowds,
prospective attendees ought to book early.
