will be presenting the
features and its software development kit. Livescribe is inviting developers to build innovative, paper-based
computing applications to make the Pulse smartpen even smarter. The Livescribe
will provide a suite of tools and services for users, casual developers and professional developers to create,
publish, share and sell their applications. Members will have access to developer tools, technical documentation,
sample code, forums and technical support.
Introduction to Livescribe Pen and Platform

Discussion of Developer Program and Tools Roadmap
Pulse Pen PC Emulator Tool (First Time Presentation!)
With proper mark-up/logic separation, a POJO data model, and a refreshing lack of XML,
makes developing web-apps simple and enjoyable again. Swap the boilerplate, complex debugging and brittle code for
powerful, reusable components written with plain Java and HTML.
Centralized Access Control that the Business Understands and the Developers Trust
Access Control is a complex problem that most companies could do better. Requirements are typically unclear, out
dated and poorly communicated. Implementations are often ad hoc and inconsistent. As a result, security suffers.
This is going to be a discussion about how the new Enterprise Security API (
) Access Control module by the Open Web Application Security Project (
) can help software teams make their code (new or existing) more secure in less time. The ESAPI license is suitable
for commercial, non-commercial and government projects. The next version is set to be released soon, so you�ll be
getting a sneak peak at the code that makes it work and I�ll be asking for your input on some open questions. If
we have some extra time, we can talk about other ESAPI features.

allows users to start application software for the Java Platform directly from the Internet using a web browser.
Programmers often speak of the
Java Network Launching Protocol
(JNLP) interchangeably with the term "Web Start". The JNLP protocol, defined with an XML schema, specifies how to
launch Java Web Start applications. JNLP consists of a set of rules defining how exactly to implement the launching
mechanism. JNLP files include information such as the location of the JAR package file and the name of the main
class for the application, in addition to any other parameters for the program. A properly configured browser passes
JNLP files to a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) which in turn downloads the application onto the user's machine and
starts executing it. The development of JNLP took place under the Java Community Process as
Writing web apps today is a tedious and error-prone process. Developers can spend 90% of their time working around
components can be difficult and fragile.

front-end applications in the Java programming language.
Performance Tuning with Cheap Drink and Poor Tools!
Kirk is giving an instructional presentation on Java performance tuning.
About Kirk Pepperdine
Kirk's career began in Biochemical Engineering, where he applied his researching skills in attaching computers to
sheep and cats, synthesising radio-active tylenol and developing separation techniques using High Performance Liquid
Chromatography for Ottawa University and the National Research Council of Canada. Subsequently, he became employed
by the Canadian Department of Defense. Kirk admits that his work at the DoD involved programming Cray supercomputers
as well as other Unix systems, but he refuses or is unable to divulge the exact nature of the applications in the
department other than that they involved databases and high performance systems. After the DoD, Kirk
consulted as an analyst at Florida Power & Light, then moved on to join GemStone Systems as a senior consultant.
He is currently an independent consultant, and also an editor at TheServerSide.com. Kirk has been heavily
involved in the performance aspects of applications since the start of his career, and has tuned applications
involving a variety of languages from Cray Assembler, through C, Smalltalk and on to Java. Kirk has focused on Java
since 1996. Kirk co-authored ANT Developer's Handbook, which was published in 2002.
