JAX Magazine: The free PDF magazine powered by JAXenter!
After a prolonged winter break, JAX Magazine is back with a bang this month, with more features, tutorials and interviews to get stuck into. Following heated discussions, we also welcome fellow JAXenter editor Elliot Bentley onboard properly as JAX Magazine co-editor, a logical move which will add an extra voice to the publication. It’s been a winter of discontent within the industry over the turn of the year. Java’s security issues won’t disappear, with patches almost weekly to fix the problem. Meanwhile its steward Oracle faces further criticism over the bundling of ‘crapware’ within the installer. Things could have turned sour over the future of the JVM’s answer to node.js, vert.x, after the project was held up in a dispute between its creator, VMware and Red Hat. Fortunately an open source foundation swooped in to offer help and stability. In this issue of JAX Magazine, we look at the intricacies of open source governance and look at how the Vert.x situation was resolved. We also sat down with the Director of the Eclipse Foundation, Mike Milinkovich to chat about the open source foundation’s last 12 months and what is in store for Kepler. In terms of tutorial content: Sergey Beryozkin explores the use of FIQL to smart search within Apache CXF; New Relic’s Dan Delany hunts in the haystack for application problems Steve Millidge shows us the power of using WebSockets in Glassfish; And finally Torsten Mielke explains how to manage ServiceMix clusters with Fuse Fabric; So what are you waiting for?
