  2. I respect Dr. Kabutz a ton, but I refuse to download Real Player just to view this...that company has just put too much crap on my computers in the past. Sorry. http://www.javaspecialists.co.za/
  3. No transcript?[ Go to top ]

    Is there no text transcript available?
  4. The transcript tab is at the top right of the tech talk console, next to the Question Index.
  5. BTW, the transcript looks as if it's been generated by speech recognition - there are some blatant errors in it (like "the loop" instead of "Zulu", "legs" instead of "LET", "equal Smith" instead of "equals method" and many others). Quite funny to read in fact.

    Just goes to prove - I need to work on my diction ... ;-) I noticed a few mistakes as well, but could not bear to look at the entire interview. You know what it is like when you see yourself on a video ... Heinz
  7. Excellent![ Go to top ]

    An excellent interview. Thanks Heinz and TheServerSide for giving respectively providing it. Fantastic! My opinion concerning Java 5 is more uninhibited positive. I migrated a really big Java client framework application plus own software distribution to Tiger pretty directly after the release and was thrilled. Already the stability and performance was worth upgrading to it. Our users were very thankful. After a direct competitor we had been the second going to Tiger in our sector. On special details and features we could be more differentiated concerning pros and cons. Additionally we had some trouble with a new regression bug, a memory leak in a core class. I fixed it and provided a patch for our own framework. Some other internals changed that were not mentioned in any release document and I had to code an own bootstrap loader for supporting different older VM platforms which loaded the newer one....but altogether the pros outweighed the cons dramatically. BTW: Germans do indeed have some sort of april fool humour. :) Michael, Java User Group Cologne Leader http://huettermann.net http://jugcologne.org

    If you're using Windows try Real Alternative (http://www.free-codecs.com/download/Real_Alternative.htm) - it works most of the time without the (numerous!) annoyances of the "real" Real Player. Cheers, Peter
