No Fluff Just Stuff

Episode 30. On Meltdowns, Payara, and the state of Java EE (with Eclipse’s Executive Director Mike Milinkovich)

What an eventful time for being a Software developer. We got a Meltdown, and a Spectre in our field to begin with, and we also have some interesting news brewing from Payara. But most importantly we secured an interview with no other than Eclipse Foundation’s own Executive Director Mike Milinkovich! He takes us into an inner tour of what’s going on with JavaEE (and the handoff between Oracle and the Eclipse Foundation). We talked on all topics EE, including namespaces, future names, clarifications on what is being open sourced and the relevancy of the JCP in today’s climate. In all, even if you think you don’t use Java EE (hint…you are probably using specs that are surviving under the EE umbrella…Json much?) you should take a listen!
