I’m currently at the Oracle HQ at the product briefings and I can tell you that there will be big news, both for Java, and for other Oracle products, such as SOA, BPM, and particularly Cloud (unfortunately I cannot disclose any information due to NDA).
Therefore it makes sense to pay attention to both conferences. For all of you not attending, you can follow the keynotes on YouTube live!
