Presentation: "Panel: How does the Open Source trend in Java affect your design and development process?"

Time: Thursday 15:45 - 16:45

Location: Metro 1


When Java 1.0 was released in 1995, closed-source and proprietary software were the norm and the idea of open source was not a common one, being confined primarily to the academic arena. Today open source software is a major force in the marketplace, and the Java language and platform has been one of the primary beneficiaries of this shift.

This panel discussion with several influential leaders of the software development community will discuss and debate the effect of open source upon the Java language, the variety of open source Java projects which are now available for developers to use, and the effect that the drive towards open source has had upon the business models of those who develop products and solutions in Java.
