That Oracle will continue to host JavaOne, the huge conference built around that popular language, came as a relief to thousands of Java proponents.
Oracle execs said JavaOne will be “co-located” with the huge Oracle OpenWorld show in San Francisco next September.
The next question is: How and where?
OOW already takes up every square inch of the various Moscone Center complex. The conference already closes off Howard Street to add additional real estate and spills over into local hotels.. Channel meetings for example, happen offsite at the Hilton (or was it the Hyatt?) Given Oracle’ s news that it’s taking the biggest and best Sun customers direct, perhaps the channel players who survive that putsch will meet on Alcatraz?
