I attended JavaTwo, the Java Developer Conference by Sun Microsystems Taiwan in Aug 17 and 18. I met two Sun guys, Matt Thompson and Rima Patel, whose talks were very impressive. Also, I participated in various sesssions, including Design Patterns in Java Library (speaker: jjhou), J2EE Anti-Patterns, New Advances of XML and Web Services 2005, and BeanShell interpreter.
In the meanwhile, In JavaTwo, I presented Free Java Runtimes dedicated to overview of recent great works around Free Java Hackers, and the slides are available here (PDF document). Of course, my slides are written in Traditional Chinese, so that only some developers could understand, but I wish that's still useful.
I am glad to see that some developers took their interest to attend my session, and gave me some feedback. They thought my demo for recent KMM (Kaffe Multimedia Project) and KOE (Kaffe-based Operating Environment) were cool enough as an exciting impression how Free Java Runtimes could be. :-)
However, I am still hacking Kaffe VM for better integration between lightweight AWT implementations and MHP software stack, and I do hope to release some snapshots this year.
