JavaPolis 2007 - Day 5

Already a bit worn out the last day @ JavaPolis 2007 began. Since the exhibition area was already closed down yesterday evening the crowd got together in even less space for breakfast, but that was ok.

First talk today was given by David Anderson about a kanban approach to software development. It is indeed a quite interesting approach but does not seem to work for all projects. Nevertheless you should check out his website and look for more informations about this.

Following this was a presentation about Java2D and 3D in high performance systems. Frank Suyken gave showed a couple of very amazing demonstrations based on JOGL and Java2D and gave away a couple of tricks how to make your own applications faster, ranging from GC to OpenGL.

After lunch there was a talk called "OSGi - The future of Java" given by Peter Kriens. He made some interesting points about actual problems concerning classloader and hiding implementations inside Java. On the other hand he seemed to insist that OSGi is the only true solution to this problem (ok he may be a bit biased). Nevertheless it was really interesting and will be stuff for a lot of discussions.

The last final presentation I attended was about "Unitils" from Flip Neven. Some quite innovative ideas how to make testing with databases more lightweight, but I will have to find out if this approach scales for large projects as well. But a few of the ideas are definitely worth considering.

It is a bit sad that JavaPolis 2007 is already over - would be nice if there could have been some gathering this late afternoon before anyone went of to catch their flights, trains or whatever.
