Presentation Overview Roadshow - Neal and Josh Talk About Java Calling all Java programming language wizards: this session is for you. Neal and Josh will present a bunch of programming puzzles for your entertainment and enlightenment. Each puzzle consists of a short program illustrating some puzzling behavior, followed by a multiple choice quiz on what the program actually does. The correct answer to each quiz will be revealed, along with whatever lessons it has to teach. We guarantee that you'll learn something new about the Java programming language. Leveraging the Latest Functions of JDBC 3.0 JDBC 3.0 is the next major version of the JDBC specification which includes numerous new features that increase application flexibility, improve performance and scalability, and allow applications to more fully exploit the extended features of all relational backend platforms. In this session, we will describe in detail the new features of the JDBC 3.0 specification and will provide examples of how these features can make a measurable difference inside your organization. Some example discussion points will include new tuning options for connection pools, reusing prepared statements inside connection pools, extended database metadata methods, new datatype support, and new transactional options. About the Presenters Joshua Bloch Joshua Bloch is a Senior Staff Engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he is an architect in the Core Java Platform Group. He is the author of the best-selling book, "Effective Java Programming Language Guide." He designed and implemented the award-winning Java Collections Framework, java.math, and many other parts of the Java platform. Previously, he was a Senior Systems Designer at Transarc Corporation, where he designed and implemented many parts of the Encina distributed transaction processing system. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Carnegie-Mellon University and a B.S. in Computer Science from Columbia University. Neal Gafter Neal Gafter is a Staff Engineer at Sun Microsystems, where he is responsible for maintenance and development of javac (Sun's Java language compiler), the prototype Java "Generics" compiler, and other core Java development tools (javah, javadoc, and javamake). Previously, he developed a Java VM that provides orthogonal persistence, and led Sun's C++ compiler development group. He has held engineering positions at Microtec Research, Texas Instruments, and Xerox. He holds a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Rochester and a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Case Western Reserve University. John Goodson John Goodson is the Vice President of Research and Development for DataDirect. For the last several years, John has been actively involved in the evolution of database connectivity API standards, including serving on the ANSI X3H2.2 CLI committee, the JSR-114 Expert Group, the Expert Panel for the JDBC specification evolution, and as one of only ten active members of the SQL Access Group. His work in this area has helped produce database independent specifications such as ODBC, ADO, and JDBC. He continues to research how XML fits within the data access standards.
