David remotely sat down with Julia Boes, Senior Member of Technical Staff in Dublin, to discuss the Simple Web Server (SWS). The SWS, introduced in JDK 18, is a minimal web server that serves static files. It comes with a command-line tool and an API. In this episode, Julia explains why another web server might be useful. She explains its goals, its features, who it is for but also what it is not!. She then goes over the command-line tool, its API, etc.

In this episode, David remotely sat down with Brent Christian to discuss Finalization and the effort to gradually deprecate this now outdated, brittle, and complex mechanism from the platform. After covering some of the finalization weaknesses, Brent discusses the alternatives to properly deal with resources, i.e. try with resources and the Cleaner API. He then continues with JEP 421 which will be part of JDK 18 and some potential subsequent steps.
