The way in which communication is handled within a cloud native application has changed over the past few years. Kubernetes has become the de facto platform infrastructure, and inter-service communication is now handled via a service mesh. This session will explore how to integrate the open source Ambassador Kubernetes API gateway and the Consul Connect service mesh into your Java apps.
