Searching And Finding Java in Blu Ray Player
I installed the PowerDVD Software (Cyberlink) with Blu Ray support. Blue Ray uses Java (the BD-J) for the rendering of menues and movie control. I was just curious and searched for Java in the installation folder. You will find the Jars and Zip-File in the [installation]\CyberLink\PowerDVD\NavFilter folder. Blu Ray comes with public API and SDK - so it should be possible to build a application as well. Some programming resources are already available - at the last JavaONE was available in the booth. So if you are a Java programmer and have to decide between Blu Ray and HD-DVD, it should be obvious what to choose. If you are not a Java programmer - just choose Blu Ray :-). You can find release dates for movies here. However some concerts e.g.: Pink Floyd / David Gilmour, and AC/DC are already available (some of the essentials bands for an average Java developer :-)).
Hallo Herr Bien,
es heisst Bluray und nicht Blue Ray.

I thought Blue-ray was the right naming. But you are (probably) right - blueray is used as well.

he means blu[e]ray.
I am also wondering why there is no 'e' in the correct spelled name (patents?).

Oh I see of course. I just checked wikipedia and found blu-ray and wondered about the comment. Of course my spelling is incorrect.
It looks like blue, the logo is blue, but the ray are just blu and not blue.
Fisch -> sorry for the confusion - my fault...

I looks good for Blu-ray as Warner decided to support it exclusively.
