Hello Friends,
Are there any good podcasts for java? I listen to java posse and swampcast and I am not very happy with either of them. They usually discuss topics like OpenJDK or interviews with Pandora programmers that add no value to my knowledge. Are there podcasts that discuss more about things like AJAX, Groovy, Ruby on Rails etc. and what are the core concepts behind it?

Note that of the three things you list as being part of your ideal "podcast for Java", only one of them is related at all to Java! Maybe you're looking for a podcast for web development in general, instead?

Doesn't matter what I am asking is for podcasts that are basically related to Java development. For eg. podcasts that answer questions like:

How is SOAP different from REST?
What is JSF?
New Features in Java EE 5?(I know this is a pretty old topic)

rather than:
Interview with the CTO of OpenX
Couple of developers discussing their daily lives
Discussing licensing options for OpenJDK.

I find it generally a much better use of my time to read articles about a topic than to listen to audio covering the same - it takes much less time. The topics you mention in particular have been covered to the n-th degree in freely available online articles, so I doubt that many people would see value in making podcasts about them.
