 Java on FreeBSD in Heavy Production

 The name Trish Lynch is not unknown in BSD circles. Trish has been 
 around since the mid-1990's doing advocacy and some small development, 
 but what Trish is known for is deploying BSD into companies that have 
 networks in disrepair or otherwise strained to the limits using Linux, 
 and turning them into works of gold. First doing this at VA 
 Linux/Andover.Net, Trish is known for putting BSD firewalls in front of 
 Slashdot, a well-known and heavily trafficked Linux news site, later on, 
 Trish won an Emmy Award by using FreeBSD in a high performance network 
 designed to handle millions of viewers for interactive television at 
 ABC's Enhanced TV. These days, Trish is deploying FreeBSD boxes with 
 java on them to multiplex video and voice at the 4th largest private 
 Instant Message infrastructure, Paltalk.

 Trish will explain how Java can be a useful and stable environment on 
 FreeBSD, as well as the particulars that go into deploying Java in such 
 a highly stressed, highly attacked environment. Trish will also show 
 where the pitfalls and idiosyncrasies with FreeBSD's java lie, and how 
 to get the most of the FreeBSD/Java production environment.
