JavaOne 2007 - "In Case You Missed Last Year!"
I'm beginning to wonder if there's going to be anything exciting this year, or if it's going to be a series of repeat sessions from last year? JEE 5 was exciting, but many of the new innovations and JSRs are intelligently waiting on baited breath for what's coming in JSE 7-- closures and properties? Innovations like that can dramatically change the way APIs are presented, the same thing happened with JSE 5 and annotations. Unfortunately some of our favorite specs (*cough* JSF *cough*) never jumped on the annotation bandwagon with a pure maintenance release for JEE 5. I'd like to see some ramp up in the JCP before JavaOne-- maybe have JSE 7 'finalize' its feature set so the stagnant JCP can pick up in activity again.
