Attendees at the 2004 JavaOne conference described their vision of the future of Java on a whiteboard.

JavaOne is an annual conference inaugurated in 1996 by Sun Microsystems to discuss Java technologies, primarily among Java developers. JavaOne is held in San Francisco, California typically running from Monday to Thursday. Technical sessions on a variety of topics are held during the day. In the evening, Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions are held. BOF sessions allow people to focus in on a particular aspect of Java technology.

Access to the technical sessions, keynote presentations, exhibits and BOF sessions requires a conference pass which usually costs between $1795 to $1995 USD.

In 1999, the conference played host to an event called the Hackathon, a challenge set by John Gage. Attendees were to write a program in Java for the new Palm V using the infrared port to communicate with other Palm users and register the device on the Internet.

During the 2008 conference, 67 Moscone Center staff members and three attendees were sickened by an outbreak of norovirus.[1]

JavaOne 2010, the first conference to be run after the acquisition of Sun by Oracle Corporation, was held September 19-23, concurrently with Oracle OpenWorld. This was the first year that the conference was not held at Moscone Center, instead hosted at three hotels on nearby Mason Street, one block of which was closed and covered with a tent, which formed part of the conference venue. JavaOne 2011 was held October 2-6, in the same venue configuration as in 2010.


In 2007, an associated one-day event, CommunityOne, was initiated, for the broader free and open-source developer community. In 2008, the second annual CommunityOne event was held on May 5.

In 2009, CommunityOne expanded to New York City (CommunityOne East, March 18-19) and to Oslo, Norway (CommunityOne North, April 15). The third annual CommunityOne in San Francisco took place from June 1-3, 2009, at Moscone Center.

Tracks included:

  • Cloud Platforms – Development and deployment in the cloud.
  • Social and Collaborative Platforms – Social networks and Web 2.0 trends.
  • RIAs and Scripting – Rich Internet Applications, scripting and tools.
  • Web Platforms – Dynamic languages, databases, and Web servers.

CommunityOne was discontinued after the acquisition of Sun by Oracle.
