After a long hiatus, the GlassFish Podcast is back with an episode on Metro Web Services. This interview with Harold Carr, the architect for Metro gets into Web Services interop with .Net WCF 3.0 and 3.5, what the uses cases are for secure, reliable and transactional Web Services, the tooling experience, how OpenESB uses Metro, performance, and more. If you’re expecting a REST vs. WS-\* discussion, we didn’t get into that rat whole, sorry ;)
On the practical recording and editing details, I tried to remove the noise (we had the choice between planes taking off and the cafeteria being cleaned up). The end result is a bit metallic and still have annoying noises here and there, but it’s clearly better than the previous episodes (interviews from Jazoon) which were recorded from a laptop from the first row of a cinema theater.
Expect more episodes soon as the upcoming Devoxx conference should be an opportunity to do more interviews. Also feel free to suggest topics you’d like to see covered.
