EOS Interview — Open Source and Middleware

Filed under
Interviews

JEREMY GEELAN: We're here with Pierre Fricke, director of product management at JBoss, at LinuxWorld in Boston. JBoss has made about 77 announcements and it's only day two, and there's some other stuff we must get onto. Thank you for joining us Pierre.

PIERRE FRICKE: Thank you, Jeremy. It's been exciting to be at LinuxWorld.

GEELAN: You guys, announcements every half minute.

FRICKE: There's a lot going on in open source in middleware, so let me take you through a couple of the announcements we've made. Last week we had a couple of interesting announcements. We announced JBoss Messaging - and it's 1.0. It's a first release of refactoring JBoss MQ to be a high-performance messaging core that can support high-end SOA and high-end ESB scenarios.

GEELAN: That's quite a shift, quite an innovation.

FRICKE: It's interesting because it's modular. There's a messaging core and then we have protocol façades. The first protocol façade is JMS, but we can support other messaging protocols so it makes it flexible. There are some people who don't want to use JMS and they may want to use something else. We will enable those kinds of protocols. We're excited about that because this is going to be the foundation for Enterprise Service Bus later in the year. We also announced the community release for JBoss Web server.

No one should have to use proprietary software to communicate with their government

The Free Software Foundation (FSF) submitted a comment to the U.S. Copyright Office calling for a method to submit comments that do not require the use of proprietary JavaScript. Proprietary JavaScript is a threat to all users on the Web. When minified, the code can hide all sorts of nasty items, like spyware and other security risks. Savvy users can protect themselves by blocking scripts in their browser, or by installing the LibreJS browser extension and avoiding sites that require proprietary JavaScript in order to function. But some sites are harder to avoid than others. This is particularly the case when the site is required for citizens to communicate or interact with their own government. If no free alternative means are provided, then users can be blocked from participating in the democratic process. Read more
