In this session, Simone Bordet examines the HTTP 2.0 protocol and explores what it takes to write HTTP 2.0 applications in the Java platform, what plans there are to support it in JDK 9 and which Servlet Containers are already offering HTTP 2.0 support.
HTTP/2 is supposed to be the next big thing for the web, after the overwhelming success of HTTP/1. We talked to JAX 2016 speaker Simone Bordet about the HTTP/2 protocol, what is the status of its specification, what features does it offer over HTTP/1, and how websites can benefit from it.
Reactive Programming and observables are really powerful and go beyond what promises offer. They provide key features like laziness and the ability to cancel them. This allows you to add robustness into Angular 2 applications especially at the level of HTTP to finely control what is executed.
What performance impact does the Varnish API have when used with fast web servers? CTO and founder Per Buer explains the execution and outcome of the Varnish performance test.
Web obesity is becoming an epidemic. Websites have increased about 25 percent from a year ago, with today’s site averaging 2,162 KB. In the past five years, websites have grown 208 percent. If the web obesity epidemic continues, there is no telling what will happen.
For all the great strides that IT is taking to bring us to better futures faster, it turns out that everything we need to know about high-performance system architecture can be learned from the history of urban Paris.
The ninth major release of the Java EE server WildFly is nearing completion. Highlights include intelligent load balancing, HTTP2 and SPDY support and a new offline CLI mode.
Optimising HTTP can be tricky. And that’s where SPDY comes in. Designed to reduce latency and increase security, Google’s web protocol can nicely fill the holes of HTTP.
A new API management tool is promising 20,000 API calls per second in a lightweight first release that’s optimised for mobile and IoT. Varnish CTO Per Buer walks us through version 1.0 of the Varnish API Engine.
Google has released as open source a framework for HTTP/2 called gRPC, which handles remote procedure calls (RPC) between servers and clients, such as browsers or mobile apps. The gRPC framework powers most of Google’s services today.
The Web is still based on HTTP 1.1 – and thus on a log of the last millennium. It’s high time that the system introduced in 1999 got a major overhaul, which is rumoured to be on the way with the almost-ready HTTP/2.
CEO Gus Robertson gives JAX the full story on the reverse proxy server with serious ambitions.
