I drove back to the NOLA the other weekend and found myself listening to a good bit of podcasts along the way - mainly from the Java Posse and developerWorks. More than one seemed to question the longevity of Java. Both IBM and the Java Posse have some great dialog on the subject:
The takeaway ... Java and the Java language are not always synonymous. The legacy of Java is likely to be ensured by the JVM rather than the language, which may simply evolve with the community in various forms such as Groovy, Jython, or perhaps JRuby.[Read More]

There's an interesting pitfall that new Quickr 8 for Domino customers encounter when migrating from QuickPlace to Quickr. The My QuickPlaces portlet is not compatible with Quickr 8. IBM has withdrawn support for My QuickPlaces in Quickr 8. So your new Portal 6.1 server will have the option to install My QuickPlaces, it just won't be supported with your new Quickr 8 for Domino server. Or that accelerator package that gets you Quickr because it's bundled ... you'll need to use the My Places portlet to integrate the Portal and Quickr world. The My Places portlet kinda fills the niche, but only slightly. My Places simply gives you a list of place - no more my tasks, pages, search, etc. Quickr 8.5 is planned to provide a new portlet to integrate better Quickr 8 for Domino and Portal. Until then, you can force the experience via RSS feeds, Web Clipping portlets, duct tape, or the always fun weekend project - build your own portlet.[Read More]
