Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Made it to JavaOne

I arrived in San Francisco at 8:30 this morning, and headed downtown to the Moscone center. I've been sitting in the "General Session" room for the last couple of hours, and there's been some interesting announcements. You can get a Sun Ultra 20 Workstation for $30/month and it comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee. The guy on stage made it sound like a screaming machine, but it was also a Sun sales pitch.

Another announcement is they're dropping the "2" from J2EE and J2SE. Now we're not supposed to say the "J", but rather "Java". Now it's called "Java EE". I think the 2 needed to be dropped, but I think it'll take a while before Java EE has the same ring as J2EE. I can already see folks calling it "Java, eh".

Sounds like something that a Trademark attorney told them to do.

It'll be interesting to see how this affects job postings and resumes. Online job searches will get tougher IMO. Searching for "J2EE" you can pretty much count on for server-side jobs, but I'm not so sure "Java EE" will be quite the same.

Java EE? That stinks. Why not just Java Enterprise and Java Standard -- they seem to roll off the tongue better than Java EE - too many vowels in row. When your abbrevation takes more work to say than what you're abbreviating, maybe you should rethink it.

I just read the announcement on the JavaOne recap on and it sounds like the new naming doesn't take effect until Java SE 6 (you like my use of the new verbage?) gets released. Is that not true? Has it been renamed right now? erik
