Installed Java 2 SDK 1.5 Beta 2

I today installed the latest beta of the new “Java 2 Version 5″ SDK on my laptop. I also received my copy of Java 1.5 Tiger A Developer’s Notebook by Brett McLaughlin and David Flangan, just released by O’Reilly. So I’m all set for some serious playtime.

Interview with Rod Johnson

Rod Johnson talks about lightweight containers, IoC (dependency injection), Spring, AOP, EJB and Java 1.5. The interview was recorded at this year’s TSS symposium. I’ve just gotten Rod’s new book (see also the review blogged yesterday) and this interview has gotten me all excited to dive in.
