I spent the day today at JavaOne in the City, where DTrace was featured prominently in the morning keynote: JohnnyL described DTrace in the abstract, and drew a (surprisingly large!) round of applause when he announced that DTrace now supports Java. He then called Adam on stage to do a demo,
the most remarkable aspect of which is that it was actually DTrace and not the canned, gussied-up gimcrack that normally passes for a keynote demo. In fact, this demo was so tangibly real, Adam has blogged the scripts from the demo. With these scripts, you can now give Adam’s keynote in the comfort of your own home!
In other JavaOne news, Adam, Stephen and I are going to be leading the charge at an OpenSolaris BOF tonight at 7:30pm at the San Francisco Marriot in Golden Gate B1. With the IBM announcement today supporting Solaris, with the new super-fast, super-cheap Solaris Opteron workstation, and with new Solaris technologies like DTrace and Zones, Solaris has never been more attractive to the Java developer; swing by our BOF to see what all the fuss is about!
