Java technology enthusiasts don't get much more enthusiastic than Andrew Glover. The developer, author, speaker, and entrepreneur has been a prolific developerWorks contributor for years, and his Java development 2.0 series has drawn raves for the way it documents the evolution of Java tools and technologies. This week's installment introduces you to Gretty, a lightweight framework for building web services that capitalizes on Groovy and Grape's dependency management. But Andrew's passion for the subject goes beyond the written word. In his Java podcast series (now in its third season), he engages with some of the leading minds in the technical community; this week, Red Hat's Dan Allen explains how the Arquillian framework can make integration testing a whole lot easier.
It's technology aficionados like Andrew who help make developerWorks such an authoritative resource for the IT community -- heck, I wouldn't mind interviewing him. My first question: When do you sleep?
Until next week,
John Swanson and the developerWorks editorial team
