More Java podcasting for your listening pleasure

So, we're about a week away from podcasting the last of the community corner mini-talks we recorded in the booth at JavaOne 2007. But don't worry, there's new stuff coming up, which I'll announce in this space as soon as it's ready (why yes, I am going to be spending the next few days recording in Skype and editing my tail off in Soundtrack; thanks for asking).

For now, our latest JavaOne Community Corner Podcast is

j1-2k7-mtT13: Legacy Integration Components Under Open JBI Components From a Partner by Fred Aabedi. In his abstract, he writes, "JBI is a specification for the integration, it provides a standard for building integration projects, just as EJB provides a standard for transactional projects. One of our open source partners who has contributed several JBI binding components is here to present their views about JBI and JBI components. We think that for JBI to have broad acceptance there must be a way first of all to build bridges with existing application and services. "

The Java Today section begins with another with a new Java podcast for you to check out. JavaWorld is kicking off a podcast series with Chet Haase on maximizing Swing and Java 2D. In this first episode, Daniel Steinberg interviews Chet about rich client development using Swing and Java 2D. Listen in as Chet, a Sun Microsystems client architect, makes the case for Java desktop applications, tackles the big issues facing Swing developers, and talks about the near future of Java development on the client side. And, of course, Filthy Rich Clients.

JSR-301, the Portlet Bridge Specification for JSF, is now in its second early draft review. This JSR defines the semantics of a JSR 168/JSR 286 portlet that proxies for JSF artifacts. Currently several open-source projects JSF/Portlet bridge functionality, and differ too much to offer interoperability. The purpose of this specification is to standardize the behavior of these bridge implementations to ensure true interoperability for JSF artifacts. The review closes on September 10.

Over at The Aquarium, Arun Gupta reports on a Windows Service for GlassFish: "GlassFish can be
installed on a variety of platforms - Solaris Sparc, Solaris X86, Windows,
Linux, and MacOS. The installer of the Sun's distribution of GlassFish -
Sun Java
System Application Server
can create a Windows Service but
that installer is not part of the GlassFish distro,
so Ryan created a
simple command to do it."
