Community Corner 2009 Podcasts Being Published

Posted by editor on June 29, 2009 at 7:16 AM PDT

The first of many Community Corner podcasts that were recorded at JavaOne 2009 has been released: the Java Tools SQE Roundtable. Now that I've got the process of producing and publishing the podcasts down pat, I intend to produce and post the remaining podcasts as quickly as I can over the coming week or so.

In each of my daily blogs, I'll announce which podcasts have been newly published. In addition, I am going re-review each podcast once they are published, and write some commentary to provide a written overview or outline of what's discussed in the podcast.

Right now you can listen to the Java Tools SQE Roundtable, in which Java Tools Community Leaders Toni Epple and Fabiane Nardon speak with members of the SQE (Software Quality Environment) project team.

The following podcasts will be available soon (see the Community Corner 2009 Podcast Schedule for an overview of what these talks were about):

  • Lambdaj project - Mario Fusco
  • SwingLabs - Jan Haderka and Alex Potochkin
  • PUJ, a JUG Contest - Felipe Gaúcho
  • Prague OSUG - Pavel Suk and Jakub Podlesak
  • Robitics and Education - Brian Jenkins and Bruce Boyes
  • OpenSolaris - James Liu
  • and MarkMail - Clark Richey
  • JUG Leadership: Lessons Learned - Matt Stine
  • Distributed Collaboration project - Dragutin Petkovic
  • JavaFX Q&A - Josh Marinacci
  • ATM Object-Oriented Design and Implementation Case Study - Paul Dietel
  • Greenfood and Robotics for Educators - Bruce Boyes and Ian Utting
  • JCP roundtable - Max Lanfranconi
  • Project Darkstar - Owen Kellett
  • JavaEE - Adam Bien

So, as I close this blog post, we've got one podcast published, and there are 15 more to go. Sounds like I've got a lot of work ahead of me!

So here is full, public acknowledgment of a major issue with the site:'s performance has been sliding for a long time, and lately has been abysmal.

In the Forums, jmartinloi has a questions regarding Specifiying Address / Interface for cluster node communication: "Hi folks, Is it possible to specify the interface or IP address used for cluster node communication? In our data centers, we use eth0 as our management network (backups, monitoring, etc) and eth1 and higher for everything else. The problem I'm seeing is that when non-DAS nodes are advertising their locations to one another, they are doing so through eth0, which has a very restrictive set of firewall (iptables) rules for traffic. eth1 is open to the network segment that each of the cluster nodes belong to. When I disable iptables and effectively open up eth0, the nodes communicate properly and the cluster works. When I enable iptables, it fails again. To sum it up..."

And yena would like to know How to force behavior updates in off-screen mode?: "Dear all, I'm trying to integrate J3D with JLoox, and I need to do off-screen rendering into an image which I can then copy into the drawing. This already works, but I have noticed that the behaviors are not updated. I searched the net, and found that AutoOffscreenCanvas3D should enable behavior calculation, but then the renderOffScreenBuffer fails. I've tried to create subclass of Canvas3D that implements AutoOffScreenCanvas3D. Although the renderer seems to be running (using isRendererRunning()), I don't detect any postSwap events, and the getOffscreenBuffer method returns a black image. What am I doing wrong? ..."
