The SCOPE Alliance published a new white paper “Mapping Java Platform
Enterprise Edition (Java EE) and SAForum: A NEP Perspective” in support
of SCOPE’s mission of enabling and promoting the availability and
interoperability of open Carrier Grade Base Platforms (CGBP) based on
Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) building blocks.
An emerging requirement of NEPs is the ability to develop and integrate Java
EE technology-based applications into the CGBP. There are no well defined
software architecture nor software interfaces/services that allow Java EE
technology-based applications to be integrated and managed within the same
high availability environment of the CGBP. This paper provides an analysis of
Java EE technology relative to the carrier grade middleware interfaces as
defined by SAForum and presents recommendations on ways to bridge the gap
'Java's always been a RIA platform - before the world really wanted one,'
claimed Sun's CEO Jonathan Schwartz recently, as he reflected on the
reinvention of the Java platform as represented by JavaFX. 'What's a rich
internet application?' Schwartz wrote.
'It depends on your perspective,' he continued, adding 'From mine, it's any
network connected application that persists in front of a user, typically
outside a browser, that can operate when disconnected from the network.'
Writing in his popular industry blog, Schwartz gave a little of the
background to Java's origins:"Early Java ... (more)

Oracle yesterday evening issued the following statement, attributable to Dan
Wall, Latham & Watkins counsel to Oracle:
"We've had a very good dialogue with the Department of Justice and we were
almost able to resolve everything before the Second Request deadline. All
that's left is one narrow issue about the way rights to Java are licensed
that is never going to get in the way of the deal.
I fully expect that the investigation will end soon and not delay the closing
of the deal this summer."
RS Media, a "robo sapien" invented by a fellow named Mark Tilden and
distributed by a company called WowWee, was interviewed at JavaOne 2007 by
SYS-CON.TV founder and host Roger Strukhoff. Despite the interviewer's best
attempts at providing a steady hand and steady conversation, the robot seemed
to crack a bit under the pressure of the hot TV lights and potential
worldwide audience in the billions.
The robot also made an appearance on-stage with Father of Java James Gosling
and Sun's Bernard Travers during the annual "Toy Show" presentation on the
final day of the conference. Da... (more)
