Java and Oracle, One Year Later

It's been just over a year since Oracle closed the deal to purchase Sun. With that in mind, the forthcoming Oracle Technology Network (OTN) TechCast "Java and Oracle, One Year Later," is aptly named. It is scheduled for 10 am (Pacific Time) on Tuesday, February 15, 2011. Ajay Patel, VP of Product Development for Application Grid Products, presents a "special live conversation" regarding "changes that have come to Java and Oracle since the Sun acquisition."

Additional information on this TechCast can be found online, but I also received an e-mail message with additional details on this TechCast. The e-mail message adds more details on what will be discussed:
  • "Highlights, challenges and what we learned over the past year"
  • "The Future of Java and its importance to Oracle and the community"
  • "Oracle’s Application Grid product portfolio today"
The e-mail message states that Justin Kestelyn (Director of OTN) will also be involved and that "attendees" will be able to ask questions. There is encouragement to register even if the currently scheduled time does not work "so we can send you the replay information."

Two posts from The Java Source blogs (Tori Wieldt's TechCast Live: "Java and Oracle, One Year Later" Replay Now Available and Jacob Lehrbaum's On-demand Replay: Java and Oracle, One Year Later) announce the availability of this telecast for on-demand replay. Both posts embed the video directly. The Lerhbaum post summarizes the topics discussed in the telecast while the Wieldt post includes quotes in text transcribed from the telecast by Terrence Barr, who also embeds the video and includes his transcription in his own TechCast recap: "Java and Oracle, One Year Later".
