I thought it would be interesting to post what kind of session and BOF I am planning to attend during JavaOne 2005 next week.
There are indeed interesting trends going on, and needless to say I don't really want to hear that the EJB (3) XML deployment descriptors are back or that kind of things. Instead, AOP, Annotations and distributed architectures will get my interest.
