IBM's Delfino shows off Apache Tuscany

In a presentation to several hundred industry developers at the conference, IBM's Jean-Sebastien Delfino showed off version 1.2 of Tuscany.
Tuscany aims to "stitch together" a composite web service which integrates both SCA and SOA, and get rid of the seams between them by using HTML-style annotations and map out the business logic of the service.
SearchSOA.com reports that the Tuscany development has widget functionality, which has added to the SCA process, allowing the service to communicate with the HTML.
Mr Delfino said of the widget: "This is still an SCA component. It still talks to the catalog. You don't need to change the model to speak to the client side."
Also at JavaOne over the last week, singer Neil Young announced a tie up with Java to release the Neil Young Archive - a retrospective of his songs on Blu-ray Java technology.
