Sun General Session  
Sorry about the lack of posts yesterday; my hand started cramping up fiercely, and I stopped taking notes on the cellphone, switching to pen-and-paper. Will try to post those notes eventually.

Project Squak: a running application as an object, can be easily tranfered. Runs on bare metal.

Nice Gui Builder in experimental NetBeans. Looks more like XCode. LAF aware. Snap to component constraints as opposed to snap-to-pixels. Codename Matisse. XML data source bindings.

NetBeams. Scalable sensor network.

"It's IMPORTANT that you don't care about real-time: you shouldn't have to." Boeng ScanEagle drones built on RTSJ. Working with open university programs. Information code is separate from flight controls, easily replaceable. Automated pilot code: remote control just says "I want to see that", drone takes care of piloting, positioning for optimal viewing, camera angles... 40 lbs. 1 gallon of fuel good for 40 hours.
