After the initial hype, Java seems to have settled down to real accomplishments. And with the recent announcement of Jini, Sun has extended the Java idea in interesting and possibly exciting ways. At the UUASC April meeting, Erik Smith, a Senior Java Technologist with Sun's Javasoft unit, will present a Java update and roadmap. He will tell us about Sun's plans for Java in the consumer arena, embedded applications, and Jini.
Erik's slide presentation is available here.
