This will be my last post from JavaOne this year–I’m headed back home. But that doesn’t mean that the rest of the JBoss crew is. They’re here through Friday to bring you more packed mini-sessions at the Pavilion booth and a few more technical sessions.
Here’s the schedule for the rest of the week and another personal recommendation.
Don’t forget to pre-register for these on the JavaOne site. I learned my lesson yesterday morning when I nearly missed Gavin’s session!
Burr Sutter and Max Katz (Exadel) – TS-7479 – Open Source Development Tools for the Java™ Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE Platform), Web 2.0, and SOA – Thursday, May 8 4:10-5:10pm and Friday, May 9, 2:50-3:50pm
Kevin Conner, Mark Little and Keith Babo (Sun Microsystems, Inc) – BOF-5846 – Developing Service-Oriented Architecture Applications with OSGi – Thursday, May 8 6:30-7:30pm
Mark Little will also be on the panel for “PAN-5188 Open Standards for SOA and Java Technology” to participate in a discussion about Software Component Architecture.

The use of JBoss Application Platform including JBoss Rules, jBPM and JBoss Messaging, were leveraged to implement the CEP Architecture and earned the client an extra $20M over the course of five years.
I missed giving you a recommendation yesterday, so I’ll make up for it today with a really good one. If you’re staying an extra day or two to see the city, try San Francisco’s Ghost Hunt. I’ve done ghost walks in about ten cities, and it’s a fun way to get the history of a place in a little bit different format from your average tour. I did San Francisco’s for the first time on Sunday, and it was one of the best I’ve tried.
Have a great rest of the week, and have a safe trip home!
