We began our week of JavaOne coverage this morning with some of the information shared during the CommunityOne General Session. Now that the day is winding to an end, we have some additional information to pass along on Sun's first-ever CommunityOne event. Outside of the CommunityOne General Session, other tracks throughout the day were on NetBeans, GlassFish, OpenJDK for mobile & embedded environments, OpenSolaris, Web 2.0, Startup Camp, RedMonk's un-conference, and the discussion of Linux versus Solaris.

The NetBeans portion of CommunityOne had run all day and consisted of featuring the advantages and possibilities for this integrated development environment. Brought into the spotlight were the productivity benefits of using NetBeans no matter the Java technology -- Java SE, Java EE, or Java ME -- along with NetBeans providing similar advantages to more programming languages than just Java. While Sun's CommunityOne conference is new, this was the fourth annual NetBeans Software Day taking place during the week of JavaOne and was once again hosted by James Gosling, the father of the Java programming language.

Compared to Java and other Sun technologies, GlassFish is relatively young with the first version coming out merely a year ago. The second version of GlassFish is currently in beta and is nearly completed with a number of new additions. The highlights of GlassFish 2.0 are new dynamic clustering, load balancing and fail-over, and the new JAX-WS 2.1 stack. The GlassFish related sessions running today at CommunityOne were Getting Started and What's New in GlassFish v2, GlassFish in Real Life, GlassFish Partner Ecosystem, and GlassFish Future: v3 and Identity Services with OpenDS, OpenSSO. When it comes to OpenJDK for mobile and embedded environments, the sessions were entitled: Six Month Report: Projects and Progress in OpenJDK and Mobile & Embedded Communities, Getting Started in the OpenJDK and Mobile & Embedded Communities, How to Open Source a Widely Adopted Technology in 6 Months or Less, and OpenJDK and Mobile & Embedded Fishbowl.
