It's alive! After several months of rumors predicting its death, JavaOne has risen from the grave and is set to debut once again in September. Oracle President Charles Phillips made the announcement at the Oracle-Sun webcast this afternoon. JavaOne 2010 will be co-located with Oracle Develop and take place at the same time as Oracle OpenWorld, which is scheduled for Sept. 19-23 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco. This will be a little different from previous JavaOne conferences, which were held in late spring or early summer. The venue however, will be the same as always.
JavaOne will continue to be a separate event and it will focus solely on Java technology, the community, and the ecosystem - not products. Phillips said that Oracle plans to expand JavaOne into new countries including China, India, Brazil, and Russia. The OpenWorld website and last year's JavaOne site haven't posted this updated information yet, but the details will likely appear on one of those sites in due time. The Open Call for Papers will be soon. We'll have to wait and see if the same members of the Java community come out to support JavaOne now that Oracle owns the event. DZone will continue to cover this story as more details become available.
Are you happy to hear JavaOne isn't dead? What are you excited or concerned about regarding JavaOne 2010?
