Oracle

Episode 45. Apache Roadshow in da HOUSE! Oracle says “NO!” to Javax, and A look at Diversity and Inclusion within Apache and Beyond

Oh snap! so The Apache Roadshow just happened, and we armed our own Bob with all our podcasting equipment, unload him at the roadshow, gave him a couple of beers, and turned the mics on! Recorded live from the bar we go into the interesting news (Java 13 is EA now), to the unfathomable (Jakara EE can’t update, change, or enhance the “javax” space), to a great discussion with Gris Cuevas on D&I.

In all, the collective Jakarta EE community jaws dropped once we heard that Oracle would not permit the evolution of the Javax package space. What does it mean for the community? What are the steps to evolve? Should we band-aid it, or just rip it off and move to the new space? Oh boy, and if you don’t think that this will affect you since you don’t use Java EE, let us mention…JAX-B, or JAX-RS…. or Java EE Security, or JSP.. or websockets… all of these are rolled into Java EE.

So take a listen as we navigate this new and perilous world of Jakarta EE, while we also explore, what Apache, Google and others are doing to better our industry’s D & I. In all, an episode to not miss!

Episode 41. Oracle payment equality woes. MongoDB and Amazon Spat. And beware of Cloud Lock-in!

Oh my, we start by going over the current Oracle Women Pay Lawsuit (really Oracle?) and we dive into the big spat MongoDB and Amazon are having about their cloud licensing (Amazon is winning). What does it mean for other open source contenders? Did Mongo needed to protect its product as it did? Was it worth it? We explore these and more repercussions as Jeff Bezos executes on its cloud lock-in strategy

Episode 40. Oh What a Year…Hystrix is gone, Eclipse can now do specs, and we just toast for 2018.

That’s it folks, we say goodbye to an interesting 2018, where we look back at release trains (we started on Java 9, now we are at 11), mergers (Microsoft + Github, and IBM + Redhat) and past conferences (JavaOne is no more).

And after that we put our gipsy hats and gaze into the future. Will the Train Release keep delivering? And is the OpenJDK in risk of fragmenting (more)? We speculate and keep the punditry going for the last closer of an episode.

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!

So it’s our anual JavaOne Debrief. After landing at the conference we got to take a look at what’s brewing behind Oracle. With our special guest @edburns we dive into the big Red plans for EE, the answer from Oracle on Lambdas (hey everyone is jumping into that train), and more.

Episode 24. Nothing like Sweet Home Chicago. A GoTo Conference episode with Georges Saab, Ed Burns, James Weaver and Dean Wampler

You read that right! We were invited to GoTo Chicago to record Java OffHeap live! And we went into it with gusto, first talking with Georges Saab (@gsaab) and Ed Burns (@edburns) on the Future of Java, and then diving in with James Weaver (@javaFXpert) and Dean Wampler (@deanwampler) 2on the current Java News, including microservices and javascript. A big episode, but worth listening to!

Episode 20. It’s the End of the Year! Let’s recap! and Oh noes, seems some FUD is coming our way from the Register?!

So the end of 2016 is upon us! And as such we should take a little time to reflect on what a year we had. Of course, before diving into that we gotta talk about the infamous article by the Register telling us Oracle is coming to charge us for Java (gasp!) by using some misworded (or misleading) headlines.

Also, Gartner is telling us that there are no Java EE Application Servers? True/false? We talk about it and let you decide!

Lastly we go into those conferences that we are going to try to make it this year, including a live performance at DevNexus!. If you happen to go in Feb, come and join us there!

Episode 16. CMS removed? Oracle Rebooting Java EE? Is Lagom finally 1.0?

In this episode we talk about the changing landscape of Java. Oracle apparently is rebooting JavaEE! But what does that mean? especially with Microprofile.io efforts? Also, Oracle is planning to “remove” CMS on a future version of Java. Is G1 really ready for prime-time? How is it possible for one organization to “remove” code? And Lagom finally made it to 1.0, even though we’re not sure if it really make any difference (it seems more documentation than anything else).
Come take a listen as your favorite curmudgeons talk about Java!

Episode 15. Change is in the air? Is Oracle really letting Java EE die? The EE Guardians’ Petition and More

“Legacy is coming”, is the call of those that are Guarding Java EE. The Java EE Guardians started a Change.org petition (and I Signed it) to get Oracle to re-engage in the Java EE space. Are there alternatives? What is plan B? Can the community take over? Is it even feasible without fragmenting? Is this all happening because of the Cloud? Some of these questions were asked in the public forum of the Java Community Process. So many questions, and very little answers from Oracle. Take a listen as we explore the different on-the-record responses, what are the possible outcomes and how the community can get involved.

Episode 14. of Googlacle, Superheroes (and EE Guardians), Oracle Stewardship, and Larry Elison’s comfy chair

Oh goodness! There is so much news going on now! Google and Oracle are on round 4 of their lawsuit, and while these giants battle it in Court, it seems that Oracle is stopping investing in Java Development! What does this mean for Java? Is it the end of rapid release lifecycles? Is EE losing too much steam? And just like in the movies, when everything seems dire, a new hero (sort-of) forms. The Java EE Guardians splash the scene! for Truth…Justice…and The Ameri…oh wait, no, that’s Superman. The Guardians are all about convincing Oracle that leaving EE is a bad idea. Would they succeed? Let’s hear what the opinion in the room is about these group of spirited developed banded with a purpose.
