    Hello. I am looking for someone who knows how to package my .jar using the new JavaFX Packager. I would also like to upload my .jar app to the Mac app store and need assistance in doing that.

    Please see: re the app I need assistance with.

    Thank you,
    Jeff Klamer

    I enjoyed the entire experience. The picnic was a total treat! And, I enjoyed the level of intelligence of the people there. I took part in the video. The first two speakers were a bit technical for me, but I could understand James' talk. It was special to listen to the inventor of Java, and learn about the work he is involved with now.

    last i met, james g. was back @hadoop summit 2010. today he is looking much healthier. i guess, it is due to his moving from land to water w/ plenty of sunshine, in the new position. reminded me of Peter in OfficeSpace movie
