In my evening hours I had the chance to talk to Jeff Genender (@jgenender) which resulted in a new episode of my developer interviews. We talked about all things Apache and integration, and also a bit about Java EE, microservices, and what today’s customers want from a modern architecture.

Jeff has over 23 years of software architecture, team lead, and development experience in multiple industries. He is a frequent speaker events like TheServerSide Symposium, JavaZone, Java In Action, JavaOne, JFokus, and numerous Java User Groups on topics pertaining to Enterprise Service Bus (ESBs), Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), and application servers.
Jeff is an active committer and Project Management Committee (PMC) member for Apache ServiceMix, CXF, Geronimo, a committer on OpenEJB and Mina, and author of several very popular Mojo (Maven plugins). He is the author of Enterprise Java Servlets (Addison Wesley Longman, 2001), co – author of Professional Apache Geronimo (2006, Wiley), and co-author of Professional Apache Tomcat (2007, Wiley).

As usual, time to grab a coffee, lean back, and listen! Thank you Jeff, for taking the time.
