Apache OFBiz is a suite of business applications flexible enough to be used across any industry. Swapnil Mane tells us some more about what that means, and what’s changed since we did the last OFBiz Feathercast back in 2006.
I’ve been sitting on these interviews for a while due to the busyness of life, and I’ve finally gotten around to editing them and putting together an episode.
At ApacheCon Amsterdam, I was able to get a little more information on XAP, Lokahi, and Tuscany, and those interviews are finally available here. Sorry for the delay on these — life has been a little complicated of late, and David has been pretty much holding Feathercast together on his own.

The Apache Felix project exited the incubation process recently. The project is implementing the OSGi Service Platform (release 4). In order to find out more about this ambitious project I spoke with Richard Hall.
While in Seattle recently, I took the opportunity to talk with Henri Yandell. Henri is one of the newest members of the Apache Software Foundation Board and he talks about his experiences at all levels of the ASF – including some advice for people just getting started.
The OFBiz project has been incubating for some time and while at ApacheCon US 2006 I took the opportunity to talk with J Aaron Farr (one of the projects mentors) about it. Since recording the interview the incubator have voted to graduate OFBiz into a new top level project, so I caught up with Si Chen and David Jones from the project via Skype to get some more information.
