Ok, folks.  So many things happened in the past week that we needed to get an episode out to talk about them. Not that Eric or me have any line into correct reasoning behind anything, but we wanted to talk, so here it is:  our Cats-and-Dogs episode!

We have several debates raging in Java-land right now, between the "Spring is a legacy framework" bruhaha, the movement to OpenJDK by IBM, and Apple's deprecation of the OS X JDK.  We attempt to take no side, but we also leave no stone unturned (or is that Tern unstoned) in our efforts to open up debate on these topics...

Interview with Mark Fisher - SpringSource, a division of VMWare on Spring Integration

Mark Fisher is an engineer at SpringSource, a division of VMWare, who leads the Spring Integration project.  He is a Spring consultant, contributor to the core framework, and works on projects such as Spring Flex Integration and the Spring AQMP project.  A long time member of SpringSource, back to the Interface21 days, Mark has deep roots in what makes Spring tick.

  • How Mark got involved in the Spring Framework
  • An overview of Spring Integration
  • Discussion of version 2.0 features, including a number of new adapters, additional patterns, enhancements brought with Spring 3.0 and more

Mark is also working on Spring Integration In Action for Manning, which should be released early next year.  He will be doing three talks at SpringOne in Chicago next week, covering Spring Integration,

Do you know why you're binding those HQL parameters? Want to make the simplest AppEngine application in Groovy? How about learning about why you're such a bad programmer (that includes all of us, according to the post).

All this and more in today's Developer News for Thursday October 7, 2010.

Have a great week!  - Ken and Eric.
