    Java.net Structure and Community

    Java.net is both a meeting place for the community of developers working with Java technologies and a source repository for projects using Java technologies. This talk will describe the structure of the site, provided by O'Reilly Media and CollabNet; the different communities with various forms of governance; and give some examples of projects in development on java.net.

    Second Presentation:

    JBuilder Extensibility & Support for Agile Development

    The JBuilder team's goal is to help developers write Java code more quickly and safely. To that end, JBuilder has great support built-in for unit-testing and refactoring, including an extensible support for refactoring any xml-based deployment descriptors. Realizing that each shop does things slightly differently, JBuilder has long offered the opentool api that allows developers to extend and modify JBuilder in a simple, straightforward way. This presentation will look at JBuilder's features that support agile development as well as an overview of building opentools to extend JBuilder.
