JBoss World 2005 starts tomorrow (Tuesday March 1st).
Tomorrow there’s some interesting sessions that I’ll defintely be attending, in particular ‘POJOs, EJB and AOP’, JBoss Cache, and a session on EJB3.0.
I’ll summarize the sessions I attend tomorrow.
Release Candidate 1 of Hibernate3.0 has been released this week, in time for the JBoss World 2005 conference in Atlanta.
I spoke with Christian Bauer at the JBossWorld Reception this evening, and he is recommending to now move from Hibernate 2.1.x to Hibernate3.0, saying that “it’s 99.9% production ready”.
Features that look particularly interesting:
- Query filters integrted with security permissions
- ability to specify handcoded SQL to replace generated SQL from HQL
- Runtime second level cache browser
Rumours in the market yesterday were that Apple was considering buying out Tivo.
Tivo has a hugely loyal following amongst existing users. The question is though, with cable and satelite companies introducing their own PVR set-top type boxes, could the Apple brand behind Tivo push it further into more homes? Or would Apple use the technology as a jumping point for other home media products – tv.Pod ?
