JavaONE has more or less started with the NetBeans Developers day. The room was packed with around 400 developers attending the pre-JavaOne kickoff event.
The different demo's we received during the keynote covered a subversion plugin, Spring mobile development environment, jackpot (analyzer tool) and 3 puzzles from Joshua Bloch and Neal Gafter.
But the most news worthy session was the short talk of Suns new CEO Jonathan Schwartz and Richard Green.
They played a Q&A session and the first question Jonathan Schwartz asked "Will you open source Java?" and the answer,
after some jokes related to the no-nonsense question, Mr Green replied "Why Not?".... interesting
Probably we'll get more info on this potential move later during JavaOne.
