Lightweight Java in the Cloud

Java SE is ideal for building lightweight microservices, and such services are increasingly being deployed to the cloud. Cloud platforms are attractive deployment targets for Java applications, due to their high availability, affordability, ease of management and access to services such as object storage, messaging and databases.

And when well-architected Java cloud applications typically exhibit several desirable qualities such as portability, updatability, configurability, composability, and scalability. This session explores the anatomy of a typical Java SE cloud application, the architectural impact of running on a cloud platform, and design patterns used to achieve the various desirable “-ilities” as well as frameworks that simplify development.
