Episode 52 – JRebel, LiveRebel and OSGi with Jevgeni Kabanov

April 14th, 2012
Jevgeni is a good friend of the Basement Coders, I know one of the reasons I look forward to JavaOne is because I know him and his ZeroTurnaround team will be there. They always have the most rocking booth at JavaOne and instead of it being manned by PR folks, it's the geeks of the company who work it (although Oliver White is awesome too!).

Jevgeni fills us in about the new product releases of JRebel and LiveRebel happening over at ZeroTurnaround and we also discuss the hot-button topic that is OSGi. You see, Jevgeni is a bit outspoken against OSGi, where as our own cast member Jeff Genender is an OSGi fan boi. Me? Well I'm just continually asking myself "OSG-why?" If I can't get a canonical dependency like Hibernate to work with it, what is it's point of existence...

Also Jevgeni mentions GeekOut which is the Estonian Java Developer's June 14-15 2012 which boasts a great line up of speakers. Since it's taking place in Estonia, birthplace of ZeroTurnaround, you know it's gonna be a non-stop geek party as well!

Thanks for the great cast Jevgeni!

Episode 50 – Interview with Josh Long of VMWare – SpringSource

January 29th, 2012
The Spring Framework is the defacto Swiss Army Knife framework for Java. If you know Java, but don't know Spring, you don't *really* know Java. One of the top reasons to use Spring is, although vendor supported, it's open source software. Navigating through the Spring Framework's code base is like seeing how code *should* be written. Design patterns abound, exception handling is taken seriously and the documentation is pretty stellar for open source code.

Josh Long is VMWare's Spring Developer Advocate, he educates developers on the merits of the Spring Framework and gathers feedback, concerns and enhancements that he takes directly to the committers of Spring. In this episode (wow 50!) Josh takes us through the new features to be found in Spring 3.1 (caching, configuration profiles, etc...). Josh was a great guest, and we hope to have him on again sometime!

Episode 49 – Paperless Offices & Java is not the new COBOL

November 30th, 2011
In this episode, Jeff walks us through how he setup his business to be almost completely paperless. He talks about the software, hardware and workflow he uses to accomplish this. Here are a list of software/hardware Jeff and Guillermo use:

Also, we discuss an article I wrote titled: Java is not the new COBOL. As you can imagine, there were people with opinions on both sides of the fence.

Just quick shout out to Dustin from "Inspired by Actual Events" blog for doing a fantastic job of writing up detailed summaries of everything he saw at Java One 2011. Phenomenal job Dustin!
