Episode 83. Hey! Your app needs its yearly HealthCheck as well!

5/9/2019
More
You got your new project, it's a brand new service, and is ready to go! But... have you done a health check endpoint for your app? In this day and age of microservices with auto-remediation and auto-scaling, having a well-behaved, functioning health-check is very important since it dictates when to evict, scale up (or down) your service. And the great news is, that for the "bigger" frameworks (like Spring or Microprofile) the work is almost done for us! With Spring Boot Actuator and...

Episode 44. A new Soap Opera! Starring Elastic and Amazon (A story of ElasticSearch Open Distro)

4/29/2019
More
Oh my, we take a break for a month, and things happen! We start with the news of the day (JDK 12 is General Availability, so go and download it today!). F5 buys NginX which brings more consolidation in the web appliance/software space, and there is a new Continuous Delivery Foundation! (What does it means for all of us devopsy folks) Then we dive into some interesting developments in ElasticSearch! You might have been using it, and even contributed to it, but may have not realized that some...

Episode 43. JCP: Hold my (white) Wine. The JCP welcomes the competition of Eclipse Foundation on spec creation + A recap on Reactive. Ah, DevNexus 2019! One of the better conferences to attend in the U.S. We ended up running our yearly offheap show in there with special guests Heather VanCura, and Ben Hale! We went through the deep questions on the role of JCP (now that Eclipse Foundation Spec Process is in town), and Heather replied that the JCP is agile, knows what they've been doing for a...

Episode 42. Move over JCP! There's a new Specs Maintaining Organization in town with Eclipse Foundation Spec Process. Oh goody, this episode is special in many ways! First, I got to travel to Chicago, and meet in-person with our usual suspects. We went to the bar where everything started, and we recorded our 42th episode in-person! (very Douglas Adams). But aside from the reminiscing, we actually got the Executive Director of The Eclipse Foundation to go on the record on what's happening...

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

2/2/2019
More
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 We thank DataDogHQ for sponsoring this podcast episode DO follow us on twitter...

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

1/2/2019
More
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. We thank DataDogHQ for sponsoring this...

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

12/3/2018
More
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...

We then take a detour and check on Jakarta EE (how is it doing on Eclipse). After we dive into the Snyk report (what are people running on the JVM). Lastly, the Chicago Java Users Group is running for a seat at the Java Community Process (JCP) table! Do vote for them as we like them a lot! We thank DataDogHQ for sponsoring this podcast...

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.

So another company made the exclusive trillion dollar club (AAPL). We also have Jakarta EE Election Results! (We presume there was no Russian Interference...yet ;). Hear what it means with the new leadership, and who is conspicuously absent from the table. For IDE Buffs, we dived into both Eclipse and Netbeans releases (Eclipse Photon, and Netbeans 9)... so geeks rejoice! Lastly we take a tour on the current Docker Image landscape and what companies are doing for Java in that space. Also,...

Oh my, there are so much news going on. Starting with a weird string concat bug in Java 9 and 10. We also see that Serializable is going to be removed (and hopefully there is an alternative for it), and we also dive into the ethics of Google as it turns down military contracts they are uncomfortable with. We also see Mission Control being open sourced and explore what that means (an opportunity for growth or a death knell for the product?). Lastly we dive into a bit of a news where Oracle...

We then take a detour onto Mesosphere raising $125 million (and talk about if all these valuations feel right?) to then see Cambridge Analytica disbanded.
