JavaOne Conference-Day 1

This morning's general session was such an amazing kick-off for this year's JavaOne. Jonathan Schwartz the president of Sun Microsystems gave a remarkable speech on how Java began to conquer mobile world and became a must-have for every mobile user.

It is interesting to know, apart from the vast invasion of Java virtual machine in every desktop, Java has significantly transformed itself into an essential part of every mobile device so that companies like Symbian, Microsoft and Palm desperately attempt to stay updated with the latest modifications in JME in order to well adapt and achieve the best performance.

He then called James Gosling the founder of JAVA programming language and Scott McNealy the former president of Sun Microsystems up on stage. It was so fascinating to see these three geniuses together, who have undoubtedly changed the way the world evolves.
