Technical expert and author Jim Scott offers a candid look at the transition of architectures from monolithic through microservices, containers and potentially serverless computing in this exclusive extract from his latest book.
If you need an easier way to build microservices, you should give Helidon, a new open source Java microservices framework from Oracle, a try. We talked to Dmitry Kornilov, Helidon Project Lead about what’s under its hood and who should give it a try. In short, “if you’re a Java developer and you’re writing microservices, Helidon is a great choice”.
With its 2.0 release, Linkerd introduces the ‘service sidecar’ while keeping all the service mesh handy characteristics of running across an entire cluster to provide platform-wide telemetry, security, and reliability. Let’s take a closer look at the latest release and what’s in it for us!
What if we told you that you don’t have to create microservices with Java EE anymore? Meet Project Helidon, a set of Java libraries for writing microservices. This new project from Oracle currently supports two programming models: Helidon MP and SE. Let’s have a closer look at it!
Beat the heat with Cool Store, an open source offering from Vietnam-devs. This containerized polyglot microservices application allows novice developers to wire up small microservices into a larger app.
Istio 101: “The future of the service mesh is one which operates in symbiosis with technologies like Knative and Apache Whisk”
Istio is gaining a lot of attention especially now that 1.0 is here. But does it have what it takes to become the de facto service mesh for Kubernetes? If you ask Brian ‘Redbeard’ Harrington, Product Manager for Istio at Red Hat, the answer is yes. “With Istio, the deployment is straightforward and the integration with Kubernetes is top notch. It feels as if it should have been there all along.”
Many of the known public web APIs claim to be RESTful but, in reality, many APIs do not fulfill an important element of REST: Hypermedia as the Engine of Application State (HATEOAS). In this session from JAX London 2017, Kai Tödter gives an introduction into this topic and provides concrete examples on why RESTful Hypermedia APIs are useful.
The shift in application development focus has led to the development of new data handling products to support changing business application development requirements. In this article, Sean Bowen explains why the Pub/Sub model is a natural fit for a microservice architecture and why traditional messaging solutions need to change.
The release cycle for Java EE is quite long, so how can enterprises take advantage of recent trends like microservices? While Eclipse MicroProfile was designed to solve this issue, there are still some gaps. Raymond Augé explains how developers can build their own open source Eclipse MicroProfile with OSGi.
Designed from the ground up for microservices, Micronaut is a framework for lightweight and reactive development on the JVM. In this article, Sergio del Amo and Ralf D. Müller explain how Micronaut’s minimal footprint can help speed up your microservices implementation.
What is Eclipse MicroProfile and what does it have to offer to the community of Java developers? Join Emily Jiang as she offers us an introduction to Eclipse MicroProfile and its goals.
The results of the Jakarta EE community survey revealed that cloud-native development is a top requirement in the platform’s evolution, alongside the need for a faster pace of innovation on the Jakarta EE platform. Users’ wish has been granted! The Eclipse Foundation unveiled the new open source governance model and a “cloud-native Java” path for Jakarta EE.
We are excited about Jussi Nummelin’s session at JAX DevOps this week! In this interview, we talked about the advantages of geographically distributed microservices and we got a sneak peek at what we should expect to learn during his session.
IBM recently introduced a new development environment; Microclimate is designed to provide a common development framework so that microservices can work together regardless of who created them. We talked with John Duimovich, IBM Distinguished Engineer and Java CTO, about Microclimate’s key features, what’s under its hood and why developers should give it a try.
