I must admit, apon seeing what I had seen on MX7, I walked in thinking I was going to see some neat gadgets, and pretty much walk out of there thinking 'yeah, it's cool... but I could live without it'.
Ultimatley, I was really wrong. This stuff is cool, and the new stuff could really speed up my productivity. (XML forms for me please!).
So I want to extend a big thank you to Tim for opening my eyes - and it was a pleasure to actually have a good conversation with you this time, as aposed to seeing you from across a conference hall.
Also - Thanks for the pointer to the J2EE Promises white paper. That is definatly going to come in handy in the near future.
