OffHeap 60. JDK 16, Spring Native, Micronaut, Microprofile and GraalVM have new releases! Author tags, And Companies blaming Interns (boo!)
Hey y’all, well, this episode we dive into tons of fun stuff. There are new toys w/JDK 16, Spring Native and Graal. Essentially, it’s a fun time to play with Native and new JDK 16 features (Records are mainstream!).
And in a one-two punch, Spring Native release of 0.9, and Graal news of adopting truffle makes the ideal of adopting native images for your Java builds not far-fetched. It might have still some rough edges, but oh my, for some projects, it went from being painful, to a non-issue. So yeah. Millisecond startup times coming up!
Micronaut is also out with 2.4.0, which we think is actually healthy! (we worried for a second or two). And Microprofile also has a release, with its LRA (and SAGA! pattern). We really wished SAGA was an acronym
In addition some interesting consolidation happening with Crowdstrike buying Humio, and Okta acquiring Auth0. Interesting moves in security and authentication to say the least.
We see how deep SolarWinds go with blaming an intern for their security woes. If that’s your strategy, you already lost at the security game (shame!)
And lastly, oh my, there is an Outlook vulnerability making its rounds. Important enough to hear (and patch!). You don’t want weird inetpub/wwwroot files hanging in your outlook server.
