The Java EE 5 / SOA workshop at Sun Tech Days Conference in Frankfurt will definetely take place. There are already 22 registered participants - the rooms are big enough, so there should be no problem. I'll try to hack as much samples in real time and answer questions with plain code as possible - otherwise SOA/Java EE 5 could become borring and too esoteric. Theory is important as well - several hundred slides are waiting for you :-). Afterwards we can drink a beer and discuss the remaining questions / problems and ideas. I would like to discuss with you some EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0 and Java EE 6 stuff as well.
