Free Java Meeting

Let's meet in Brussels

The next meeting of the Free/Libre Open Source Software Java developers will take place in Brussels during [http://www.fosdem.org FOSDEM], February 23 and 24 in Brussels, Belgium.

In the past several years there were two main events around libre java for the GNU/Linux platform. The Fosdem "Escape the Java Trap" event organized by the GNU Classpath community, coordinating technical issues around implementing core libraries, compilers, tools and free runtimes. And "DevJam", a GNU/Linux distro packaging conference organized by Debian, but meant as a cross-distribution coordination meeting to set common guidelines for packaging java programs and libraries.

The goals of the Free Java Meeting will be:

  • Clearing OpenJDK encumbrances
  • Increasing Java Ubiquity: working together across projects and platforms
  • Improve the distro packaging guidelines (filesystem layout, packaging inter-dependencies, browser integration, developer guidelines, etc.) used across GNU/Linux distributions for java libraries and programs.

Welcome to the Free Java Meeting

Welcome and introduction to the projects, people and themes that make up the Free Java Meeting at Fosdem.

After welcoming and introducing the people and projects in the room various people from GNU Classpath, OpenJDK and Sun will look back on the past year and try to look into the future. There will also be a short presentation on the OpenJDK Community Innovator's Challenge.

Mobile Java

Take your freedom to the max! Make your Free Java mobile.

What if you want to scale up or down your VM or class library. Is it easy to switch between completely different "full" and "small" versions of the core class libraries? How do you make a VM as flexible as possible to adopt to the available resources and core classes? What has the Mobile and Embedded community been up to this last year?

VM Rumble, Porting and Architectures

There are lots of runtimes able to execute your java byte code. But which one is the best, coolest, smartest, easiest portable or just simply the most fun?

Various virtual machine hackers will each give a short presentation on what makes their runtime special and fun to work with. What cool things they have been doing this last year. What are their plans for next year. What can other runtimes learn from their experiences. And how can YOU help! The session will end with a general VM discussion.

Distro Rumble

So which GNU/Linux distribution integrates java packages best? Find out during this distro shootout!

How do the various GNU/Linux distributions integrate java based libraries and applications into their packaging systems. How can we improve cross-distro packaging guidelines (filesystem layout, packaging inter-dependencies, browser integration, developer guidelines, etc.) used across GNU/Linux distributions for java libraries and programs?

The Free Java Factory

OpenJDK and ?IcedTea, how are they made and how do you test them?

In the factory there will be discussions about functional testing and quality, an overview of the work of the client team and an overview of the transformation process that turns openjdk/hotspot into icedtea with some spicy applet, liveconnect and webstart support.

Cool Stuff

Lots of examples of cool work in progress.

Real hackers show their work, how they do their work and where it takes Free Java next. Examples are gstreamer integration, graphics through the framebuffer, jnode a full os in java, ?NetBeans for ?HotSpot hacking and Jalimo bringing Free Java to maemo and openmoko devices.

Java: Freedom, Compatibility and Community

How to combine the holy trinity of Free Java? Freedom, Compatibility and Community.

Java is Free! Now how do we keep it that way? How do we measure compatibity? What about this mysterious and non-free JCK? What is the future of the JCP process? Where does the community come in and how can you help?
