We, my self and Manoj, have had a revised version of the Asynchronous Web Service paper we presented last year to be accepted at JavaOne 2009. Got to look at whether I can get travel approval in this economic climate though otherwise Manoj will be presenting on his tod. Hopefully I can get some time to catch up with some friends while I am there.
Busy fixing bugs in JDeveloper at the moment. In case you are interested we have a special song we sing when fixing bugs and it sounds a bit like this. (Requires an install of iTunes, possibly a mac, this might also work.).
