OpenJDK

Episode 39. RedHat + IBM are now one, and Amazon introduces a new Java Flavor (Corretto)

Oh my! It’s an interesting month in the Java space. IBM just acquired RedHat, and we are just wondering what does that mean for the Java Ecosystem. We don our pundit hats and try to see the different perspective on what that does to their redundant Projects (Openliberty and Wildfly). Also, RedHat is the official maintainer of the OpenJDK 8 branch… What would happen now? (or in the near future) under IBM’s stewardship?

We also jumped into Amazon introducing another OpenJDK flavor, and wonder what does it mean for the (now growing) OpenJDK alternatives. Is it fragmenting? Or growing? What is Amazon’s purpose on its OpenJDK flavor of Corretto?

In all, an incredibly intersting episode. Make sure not to miss this one!

Episode 37. JDK 11 is out! Java Licensing Model is changing! Linus gives an apology

Extra Extra! If you work in Java you gotta take a break from all other news, and listen to this episode! Java is changing its pricing model, and with that comes a lot of new consequences. You can still get it for free, but you gotta know what you’re getting into (Move to OpenJDK!). In another news, Redis is changing is BSD licensing (while usually free, now comes with a ton a caveats for cloud hosts). Lastly, Linus Torvald (the only one who’s a bigger curmudgeon than @michaelminella) has decided to apologize to those that had to endure his rants! Our industry is changing, and is moving forward!
