This podcast talks about how to program in Java; not your tipical system.out.println("Hello world"), but more like real issues, such as O/R setups, threading, getting certain components on the screen or troubleshooting tips and tricks in general. The format is as a podcast so that you can subscribe to it, and then take it with you and listen to it on your way to work (or on your way home), and learn a little bit more (or reinforce what you knew) from it.

Episode 77. Sql or NoSql, To Normalize or to Not Normalize... that (STILL) is the question

10/23/2018
More
So you may have thought about using NoSQL or a Document Database for taking care of you needs. But do you know why that might be not be a good (or a pretty bad idea?). Or you may have a Database that have been running fine, but it seems that you can't work with it anymore? (Is it time to move to NoSql? Would it help?). We dive into the "Why" would you choose Databases vs NoSQL Data Stores, or when to ditch your MongoDB and actually come back to MySQL. In our current time of "WebScale" and...

It's coming! If you have been using Oracle Java 8, you should know that starting on January 2019 we will have to get an oracle license for running Oracle's JDK in production. OR, if you want to keep using Oracle Java (or OpenJDK) for free, and still receive security updates, then you gotta move to 11! In this episode we have no other than @DrDeprecator itself giving us a tour on what are the less-known changes (and goodies) that are coming when upgrading from 8 to 11. We go through most of...

2/11/2018

It was both the most anticipated and (one of the) most controversial features in Java 9. What's the bruhaha all about? What is Jigsaw (or the Java Platform Module System)? What does it bring? Can I use it? And if so, why would I use it? All these questions are answered as we dive into the history of JSR-376 (it has been years in the making). And since Jigsaw is so big, there might be a two-parter for us! So stay tuned! We thank DataDogHQ for sponsoring this podcast episode Don't...

Episode 66. Ok, how about consuming Rest services

8/15/2017

So we talked about how to create a rest service (using things like Apache CXF and Spring MVC), but sometimes, we actually need to consume these rest services. Luckily within the Java ecosystem there is a lot of way to skin that cat, and in today's episode we at least cover 4 ways of doing so (including my favorite of the day, Feign). Come take a listen as we dive into Appache HttpComponents, Apache CXF with JaxRS, Spring RestTemplate and Netflix Feign on this fully-loaded episode. Don't...

Episode 65. Oh my gosh, we missed CACHING! (what a cache miss!)

7/5/2017

What a strange omission, of all the concepts, one that all of us should always have is Caching. We have used it (and most likely we have been burned by it). Come and take a listen on how to correctly (or at least not as incorrectly) think about caching, finding out your "game plan", and using JSR-107, or Hazelcast, or Apache Ignite or Spring. LRU? Time-based? How much memory? Long distribution tails? cacheable keys? All concepts that you should ask before creating/using a cache! Don't...

Episode 63. JCR (Java Content Repository) It is a Document Database before Document Databases were cool!

2/16/2017
More
The Java Content Repository (JSR-170 and JSR-283) have been around for a while. For those who don't know it's an actual way of managing content (or assets, or text, or images, or a catalog). Its use can be almost anything, and yet, we didn't know we had it! The best part? It's a JSR so not just that there are different, compatible implementations, but the underlying storage can be changed in a jiffy. Want to store as files in the filesystem, done. How about a Database? also done. How about...

Episode 62. Hm, what's the best to travel this holiday? on Apache CAMEL, of course!

1/5/2017

So let's talk about one of (if not the) largest, and most interesting framework hosted at Apache. Camel is essentially an implementation of the Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) book (which is a mandatory read for the serious dev!). It has so many contributions (and connections) that there is almost no popular system that it can't connect to. In this episode we dive into the reasoning and "spirit" of Camel, to make sense on how to use it. If you ever used Camel, or have run into camel...

It's not the "cool kid" anymore, but it sure is everywhere! If you ever generated an xml file from a java class (or have created a java class from a definition) you have been using Jaxb! And if you have used for some time, you can see that Jaxb sometimes works, and other times...well. Come take a listen and understand what's happening under the covers!

So you have heard about it, and probably ran into it already. Docker is a super cool tech that let us create / manage and deploy applications (It is really what would come out if Devs and Ops decided to have a kid). Come hear how you can too master the art of Docker, and more importantly why is it so "accepted" and revered. A Big Thanks to LaunchDarkly for sponsoring our podcast!

Yeah, today Streams might seem like old news, but you know what? It's worth revisiting and discovering what we didn't know from before. In this episode, Bob, Michael, and I come back to revisit Streams and share what was good, bad (and evil) of them. Including some great trivia on default implementations (a weird Java 8 feature). If you have started to use streams, but not sure if they make sense, or if you are about to dive into them, take a listen! The perspective is great! Don't forget...
