Subject Re: Geronimo BOF at ApacheCon : Tuesday, Dec 13, 2005 - 8:30pm
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2005 16:20:19 GMT
Just as an FYI, I believe Bruce and/or Jeff are doing a tutorial on
Geronimo over the weekend, and I'm doing a talk on "J2EE Development
with Apache Geronimo" on Wedensday morning.  So it would be nice to
focus the BOF on things other than basic installation and J2EE

I could do a lightning talk on our experience with Portlets, or the
Management API, or something like that.

We could also spend some time brainstorming on features for the next
release, perhaps.
