The in-depth sessions focus on using Java to build world-class enterprise applications. Session topics include Jini in the Enterprise, XML in the Java 2 Platform, Portable Data Access in Distributed Enterprise Applications, and Design Considerations: Migrating from Client Server Applications to e-business Application. Presenters are Java professionals who have been intimately involved in the development of the Java language and complex Java applications. Presenter bios are available online.

"This conference program delves deep into the brave new world of complex, enterprise-wide Java development," said Joseph McIntyre, director of O'Reilly's conference operations. "Our conference committee has designed tutorial and presentation tracks geared exclusively to hands-on enterprise application developers. This will be the most technical conference a java programmer can attend this year."
