4/3/2003 - Key3Media Events, Inc. and Sun Microsystems, Inc. announced an extensive content program for JavaOne, Sun's 2003 Worldwide Java Developer Conference event. The 2003 JavaOne conference will take place June 10-13, 2003, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California.

This year's conference continues with the JavaOne tradition of driving greater community interaction and advanced technology content for developers of the Java technology than any conference in the industry today. The topics, forums and sessions available to conference attendees will provide Java developers the opportunity to understand and apply the next generation of Java technology for mobility, Web Services and enterprise development. In addition to its Java University program, the conference schedule will focus on the following eight topics, which include more than 200 technical sessions and will feature speakers that are the true innovators in the Java community.

Java Core Technology (25 sessions, 24 BOFs)
Attendees will discover what is up-and-coming for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition (J2SE), the premier platform for development of Internet and Intranet applications. The areas of language, libraries, performance, memory management, tools, security, and more will be featured in sessions taught by Java technology engineers, licensees and partners.

Java Technology in Mobility (38 sessions, 31 BOFs)
As Java technology for mobile devices and embedded systems has reached a significant point in its evolution, industry specialists will provide a detailed overview of the latest changes and updates in MIDP 2.0, Java 2 Platform, Micro Edition (J2ME) Personal Profile and J2ME Personal Basis Profile, and Java Card 2.2 technologies. Advanced programming techniques for addressing the unique characteristics of modern mobile clients will also be explored.

Core Enterprise (34 sessions, 24 BOFs)
Attendees will learn how to become more productive and valuable to the enterprise using Java technology-based server-side component architecture, focusing on business logic rather than system level programming. Experts will discuss, in detail, the latest innovations in Enterprise JavaBeans technology, Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC) software, the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform, Connector Architecture, J2EE application servers, performance tuning, design patterns, and application compatibility. Special topics for discussion include Extreme Programming in the J2EE platform and real-world industry case studies.

Java Technology in the Web Tier (16 sessions, 20 BOFs)
Technologies and methodologies for the development of dynamic and engaging Web content using the Java 2 Platform is the focus of discussion in these topic sessions. Attendees will gain knowledge into the utilization of cutting edge XML and Java technologies for Web application development, while receiving all the benefits of the Java 2 Platform, including ease of use, portability, performance, reusability and security. Session topics covered include presentation layer, XML, Web services, dynamic graphics, scalability and performance.

Web Services (29 sessions, 18 BOFs)
Java technology-based API's and programming models applicable for developing Web services and how to effectively use them will be covered in-depth. Attendees will learn how to build Web services based on synchronous or asynchronous styles of messaging, how to assemble multiple Web services into business process flows, and how to successfully integrate Web services with existing legacy applications.

Java Technology on the Desktop (17 sessions, 14 BOFs)
This topic, a must-attend for desktop Java technology developers ranging from novice to advanced expertise, will cover GUI and graphics-related technologies that support Java applets and applications. Attendees will learn what is happening in the Java Foundation Classes technology ("JFC/Swing"), AWT, 2D, Globalization, and Accessibility, and receive the latest updates on Java technology support in the latest wave of new browsers using Java Plug-in tools. Critical deployment technologies and media-related topics will also be covered, as well as the benefits of deploying Java technology-based applications to the desktop using Java Network Launching Protocol and API (JSR-56) and Java Web Start software.

Java Technology Products and Success Stories (28 sessions, 22 BOFs)
This exciting topic will feature Java technology products from leading vendors, including those who can help developers improve their own projects, as well as in-depth technical investigations of success stories directly from developers and organizations using Java technology.

Advanced Networking Technologies (20 sessions, 17 BOFs)
A variety of advanced networking technologies, including Jini, "Project JXTA", JAIN, and OSS/J will be featured within this topic. Attendees will discover how to create distributed systems that can automatically adjust to accommodate changes to the set of components that compose them for improved business processes and create new market opportunities.

Media registration for the Conference will open in April. In the interim, please contact Kimberly Heaney at with any questions or requests. General Conference Attendees can now register at
