Steve Citron-Pousty just posted about a whole new section of the ESRI Developer Network devoted to Java. I think EDN got off to a slow start while everyone got geared up to support it, but now it seems to be flying along with tons of new features. I have to admit I feel a little left out as this is as close to ESRI Java as I have ever gotten (beyond ordering MO Java and EDN for my programmers). If you thought ESRI was ignoring Java for .NET the moves that have happened over the past few weeks prove otherwise.
