SAKONNET SPONSORS 2006 RIO JAVA SUMMIT

ETRM SOFTWARE PROVIDER DEMONSTRATES ITS COMMITMENT TO JAVA PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE

Rio de Janeiro, 3 April, 2006 - Sakonnet Technology, the leading provider of Java-based energy trading and risk management software, has announced it will be the primary sponsor of the Rio Java Summit for the second year in a row. The event is organised by the Rio de Janeiro Java Users Group (RioJUG, http://riojug.org) and will take place on May 6th 2006.

Speakers will include leading Java experts, including Scott Ambler and Gavin King. Scott is a senior consultant with Ambysoft Inc. and author of several books on effective software development. He is the thought leader behind The Agile Data Method, Agile Model Driven Development (AMDD), the Enterprise Unified Process (EUP), and the Full Lifecycle Object-Oriented Testing (FLOOT) method.

Gavin King founded the Hibernate project, the leading persistence solution for Java. He is an active member of the JSR-220 expert group, and contributed heavily to the design of EJB 3.0. With Christian Bauer, he was author of Hibernate in Action. Gavin works for JBoss, Inc, a technology partner company of Sakonnet's.

Alarik Myrin, Sakonnet's Chief Technology Officer, who will also be speaking at the summit, said: "The Java community in Rio where Sakonnet has one of its three offices, is expanding rapidly, partly owing to the excellence of university computer science departments in Rio and elsewhere in Brazil. This event will be a great opportunity to discuss advanced development and automated testing methods, and so expand the community's understanding of what can be achieved with Java."
