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

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 using something that the cool kids use like Mongo? It Got you covered man! (or Woman!)

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

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 and scratched your head, then definitively take a listen!



A Big Thanks to LaunchDarkly for sponsoring our podcast! Feature flagging is easy, feature flag management is hard. What LaunchDarkly has done is essentially take a system like Google or Facebook has made in-house and bring this to the masses. With features like percentage rollouts, audit logging, and flag statuses, teams have complete control over features at scale. When you effectively separate business logic from code, you can build better software, faster without the risk

Episode 61. Let's go retro with JaxB/Xml/XSD and Soap! (JSR-222)

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! And how you can make JAXB, oh well, "behave!".
