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!

"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.

Change.org Petition to get Oracle involved in Java EE again

Java Community Process Executive Committee Minutes June 14, 2016

 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.

Java EE 8, What is the Current Status: Case Study for Completed Work Since Late 2015 (Josh Juneau)

JCP Membership Instructions 

 

Apr 15, 2016

Do you know that Java can evolve right? Do you ever wonder how that happens behind the scenes? Well, we had a great opportunity to talk to the person that coordinates all that magic from the underside, and discuss, albeit briefly what we feel is great and not-so-great within the JCP. We also get to hear first-hand how changes are happening. Who really controls a change in Java (JSR)? how is leadership transition handled?, and what can we do about it. All questions raised by the most vested host we have (Michael), so take a listen!

Also, what do we do with conferences that have great technical content, but controversial speakers? Is it right to attend? or is it one of those "Knowledge is neither good or bad"? LambdaConf lost support from its sponsors for allowing a very controversial speaker purely on technical merit, whereas StrangeLoop decided to go the safe route and ban him from the conference. Who was right?

There has been a re-christening! Typesafe is no more, and now is Lightbend! And it comes with a new Microservice Framework Lagom.

Also in other news, IBM both announces layoffs, and also comes back and sues groupon for infringing on its patents. What could it all mean?

And Microsoft building Sql Server on Linux? Xamarin acquired by Microsoft? This is a very different Microsoft now! What gives?

Oracle lost another evangelist. Reza Rahman, the Java Evangelist for Glassfish and Java EE left! Is Oracle cutting back on their Java EE Investment? Or even in their Java investment?

What does David Hasselhoff, aliens, vampires, nuclear weapons and Itunes have in common? They are all part of the OffHeap episode of DevNexus.

Join us in this hour (and half) long show where we talk with Markus Eisele(@myfear), and Daniel Hinojosa(@dhinojosa) on far-reaching (and not-so far-reaching) topics like the first time we went, oh-sh!t when deploying to production, or the Tech Economy Outlook. We poll our DevNexus audience about copyrights, apis, type of developers, JCP, and on dead/alive/zombie technologies (GWT, we're watching you). Take a listen to one of the funniest episodes of Java OffHeap

Holy smokes Batman! Google is going to be using OpenJDK for its Android OS? How did that happen? and what does that mean for Java. Is Google simply avoiding further headache in the future from its Oracle lawsuit? Or is this a smart play where Google wins with Android where they get to standarized (goodbye Samsung customization?). Take a listen to see what is going to happen (or what we think is going to happen anyways!)

What are the end-of-year news for Java? What was on-target, and what fell through the cracks? Take a listen where we walk down memory lane and see what were the big hits (and misses) of Java in 2015.

Also, let's talk about Computer Science and Education. What road do you take to get there? CS Degree? Certifications? Bootcamps? Nothing? Is it important? Hear these three opinionated people on what they value most for becoming a developer.

So we made it to the promised land! The biggest Java Conference in the U.S. (we snuck in) and dedicated our podcast to Java's 20th birthday, and also render tribute to the iconic Java Posse. Back in 2010 they made a series of predictions on what the Year 2015 would bring. Apparently they weren't that off! We also discussed how Java is still relevant (very much so, thank you), and what's on our crowd tech radar.

Big Shakeup this month. Oracle had dismissed a number of Java evangelist positions, and there is no official response from Oracle. Also, java.net is no more! What does it mean? Is it the end of Java as we know it? We really don't know but that doesn't stop us from playing out what could happen!

Computer Science and Kids! Is it important? Are we doing enough? or too much? Take a listen to get the different perspectives on education and programming!

So we go and wake up with the news that Oracles Security Chief didn't like people discovering vulnerabilities on its product (say that again?), then we follow on the new fad covering towns (First it was SAP, then Cloud, to Agile, and now is all about Reactive).

This podcast is special because we have of first guest, Josh Long! @starbuxman. Hailing us on Skype, he talks to us about what's going on with Java within the great Wall of China. We also dive into being Cloud-ready, and what does it mean to remove Unsafe from Java 9

Get ready to be lawyered-up. It's coming! Oracle v Google is not going to be heard by the Supreme Court, and while that might not spell "Doom" just yet, it's fast approaching the reality that APIs are on the verge of copy-right-a-bi-li-ty (that's too many slashes, just for emphasis).

Then we dive into what everyone seems to be consulting on, presenting on, it's the buzzword of the moment, the superstar, the Britney Spears (or Katie Perry) of today. Of course, we are talking of Micro-services. We go and discuss the perspective from many different points of view (from the performance guy to the independent to the small and large shops) and try to figure out is it fad? or is just something we always knew with a different name. So come take a listen!

So as soon as we clicked the Record button, there were news of the Obama administration asking the Supreme Court to not take the Oracle V Google case. That's news. Like big news. We discussed, and left you a nicely typed doc in the shownotes to forward to your congressional representative. Also, someone (Typesafe) is going to the Secretary-of-state and asking for a Name-Change form, just that they are not sure what to fill in just yet. Then we take a skip into the new things happening in the JCP, talk about what works, what can be improved and we end with sharing the story of a language that just happen to turn 20 this past month!

Ooof, we start this podcast with the news that Microsoft is coming to our turf and is introducing their core .net libraries for Mac and Linux. We then dive into this theory of JS being the Bytecode of the web (Java Webstart, you tried). Then we got called "old", as in Cobol old (getoffmyLawn!) to finally talk about Groovy, Grails and what does it mean when a project loses its "home". Always entertaining, with a lot of opinions abound!

The Maiden Voyage of the Off-Heap, as they venture outside of their Java world, and take a look at what's happening Around Java (not just inside). We start by swinging with the Heavy-Hitters and talk about Oracle Vs Google, The values of Tech Interviews, and the End-Of-Life of Java 7 (is it?). Come take a listen to the Coolest Java Technical News podcast out there (we might be biased though).
