  • Poor Presentation

    by Rex Sheridan,

    I am a fan of Spring Integration. I think both of the presenters have proven themselves fully capable from what I have seen from their interactions in the various related communities. While I applaud them for their hard work, I feel like this presentation was scattered and didn't do justice to the good design of the project. The interaction between Josh and Oleg was obviously strained and not well thought out. It felt like they were trying to present a nebulous concept they did not fully comprehend. Yet, I know from other postings they have made that they fully understand what is going on. I think that communication problems (with which I constantly struggle) are emblematic of our industry and I hope that we can right ourselves. I long for the renaissance man of our industry to show us how it is done.

  • Any Performance Benchmarks?

    It would be very helpful to know some performance benchmarks.
