News: Tech Talk: Geir Magnusson on Apache Harmony and Apache Geronimo

  1. Geronimo, Apache's open source application server, focuses on more than just building a certified implementation of J2EE 1.4. Geronimo also involves performance, scalability and operational management. In this tech talk, Geir Magnusson, vice president of products for Gluecode software, talks about the future of the multi-functional Geronimo along with Apache's open source JVM project, Harmony. Topics included are:

    - How Geronimo compares to Apache Avalon
    - What sets Apache's open source license apart from others
    - The requirements that passing the TCK demands
    - How Harmony compares to some of Sun's open source projects
    - What Gluecode does as part of the open source project
    - The relationship between Geronimo and WebSphere

    Watch Geir Magnusson on Apache Harmony and Apache Geronimo.

    Geir will be presenting the Day One morning keynote at TheServerSide Java Symposium on March 23. His presentation, titled " Transforming Enterprise Java into a Commodity," will address what commoditization means for the Java platform and its implications for the vendor and the developer community.

  2. Thank you very much for not posting when the interview was conducted.

    It makes for a much more satisfying user experience when the interviewee has to come onto the forum twelve hours later and apologetically explain which elements of the interview are out of date.

    Every single time.

    Yeah, if not the exact date, at least the millenium would help.
  4. It was recorded sometime in the millenium following January 17 in the year of our Lord 1310.
  5. Very good interview, for both interviewer and Geir.

    One thing in my wish list is: make the priority of Geronimo higher that Harmony. Although there are many J2EE implementations there, but there are many issues there as well. So there is a need for Geronimo. But J2SE is more stable. The need for Geronimo is stronger than the need for another J2SE implementation.

    Thank you. It wasn't very obvious.

    Other aspects were things like performance, that’s always been key from the beginning, scaleability goes along with performance, operational management, sort of trying to shoot for what a Telco Class Server environment should be.

    Does this refer to RAS, or to low latency?
