    • Technology

An airhacks.fm conversation with Simon Martinelli (@simas_ch) about:

gaming and BASIC programming with C64,
reading a Markt and Technik book about C64 programming,
building a volleyball tournament application with C64,
writing a Visual Basic application for track and field competition,
MS Access applications were maintained by business people,
maintaining an application for 30 years,
no love for Eclipse RCP,
Swiss Railways implemented the train disposition system with Eclipse RCP,
a disruptive keynote for Swiss Railways,
starting with COBOL on mainframe and IMS,
mixing COBOL and assembler for performance,
serverless programming with COBOL,
COBOL security mechanism is nice,
mainframe is virtualized and similar to docker,
mainframe jobs are like docker containers,
database and business logic are not distributed on AS 400,
running as much as possible on a single machine could become a best practice,
helping to solve the "year 2000 problem",
WebSphere with TopLink, Oracle, MQ Series and Swing,
the transition from mainframes to WebSphere,
replacing MQ Series with Apache Kafka,
from "in-memory" remoting to EJB-remoting,
using Eclipse SWT for performance reasons,
Swing Application Framework was never released,
the SWT's problem was OSGi,
GlassFish was introduced as a lightweight alternative to WebSphere,
Java EE 5 was an lightweight alternative,
working together on QLB,
the forgotten NetBeans contribution,
teaching at the University of Bern,
Eclipse's maven integration is still mediocre,
heavy IntelliJ,
focussing on JBoss performance and OR-mapping,
JBoss vs. GlassFish at the University,
killer use cases for Camel,
transforming EDI into XML,
pointless ESBs,
shared deployments on JBoss were problematic,
Vaadin flow with web components,
generating Vaadin frontend on-the-fly,
vaadin generates Web Components / Custom Elements for the frontend,
exposing metadata via REST,
