Interview series with JAX DevOps speakers — Part 3

Microservices in Java: Yay or nay?

Is Java ideal for microservices development? Should companies continue to invest resources in this direction? We invited seven JAX DevOps speakers to weigh in on the microservices hype, Java’s place in all this and what’s happening in the container world.

Interview with Quentin Adam, CEO of Clever Cloud | DevOpsCon 2017

Token-based authentication in microservices: “You are locking the defenders out of the castle”

Microservices are all the rage now but this doesn’t mean they are a silver bullet. When you go down the microservices path you should expect to encounter several problems. JAXenter editor Gabriela Motroc caught up with Quentin Adam, CEO of Clever Cloud to talk about how tokens fit into the microservices ecosystem, when and why it’s better to transform a monolith into microservices and more.

Why transforming monoliths into a myriad of independent microservices is a good idea

Containers, microservices and the power of modern IT

Containers and microservices are powerful tools for solving many of the problems we face with modern tech. In this article, Dale Vecchio explains why you should seriously consider switching from a monolith to a microservice.

Interview with Jesper Richter-Reichhelm

Machine Learning as a microservice in a Docker container on a Kubernetes cluster — say what?

It is always fascinating to see the versatile ways in which machine learning can be used. At Outfittery, algorithms help the experts select the most suitable outfits for customers — quite literally. In an interview at W-JAX 2017 in Munich, Jesper Richter-Reichhelm, CTO at Outfittery GmbH, explains how the company uses machine learning and which frameworks they use. He also tells us who makes better suggestions — human beings or machines.

Eclipse microservices and service discovery

Discover service discovery, an essential part of microservice architecture becomes necessary when we start using containers and container orchestration mechanisms. In this article, Urban Malc and Matjaz B. Juric describe the most important scenarios for service discovery, as well as service discovery support in the KumuluzEE microservice framework.

Interview with Kai Tödter

Microservices are more than just a hype

Microservices may be a trendy architecture style right now, but they’re a flexible, yet solid foundation for software. In this interview, JAX London speaker Kai Tödter describes some of the advantages and disadvantages of microservices. Plus, he explains why cloud computing is a natural support for a microservices architecture.

Making it micro

Microservices demand a micro approach to integration

More and more organizations are turning to microservices. But microservices need an integrated approach, otherwise it might fail. In this article, Mifan Careem explains why integration microservices are a more flexible approach to microservices architecture.
