ApacheCon US 2008 Session

Stormin' the coffee cup with Apache Harmony

Since it's inception in May 2005, the Apache Harmony project has enjoyed phenomenal progress, such that three years later we have virtual machines, JIT compilers, and over 99% of Java 5 and Java 6 SE APIs complete. Harmony's pluggable, modular architecture supports interoperability between multiple Virtual Machines, and well-defined functional areas of the Java class library can be used in a variety of situations. Learn how Harmony is not just your everyday Java runtime, and a little about the issues that has kept Harmony in the news. This talk will appeal to practitioners and developers with an interest in open source innovation around the Java platform, and includes a demo of Apache Harmony's capabilities.
