For more than 20 years, Java has been the main player in the non-Microsoft development landscape, with J2EE and now Java EE the platform of choice for many enterprises. It’s proved resilient, adapting to fresh approaches and new languages, but with the advent of mobile, the Internet of Things and the cloud, many are asking if Java and Java EE are still relevant.
This 55-page e-book gives the answer – a confident, cogently argued ‘yes’.
It covers a wide range of technologies and trends, starting with an overview of the history of Java and J2EE / Java EE. That includes an overview of its successes as well as its shortcomings. It also examines the role of server-oriented architecture, together with DevOps, immutable containers and offers an in-depth look at microservices.
The book then goes into the details of where Java EE meets microservices, along the way answering questions on the development role of JAX-RS, security and API management, but as Mark Little, VP of Engineering at Red Hat, points out in his foreword to the book: “The real jewel in the crown is the chapter on microservices patterns – every architect who is considering microservices will find something of value here and be able to put it to immediate use.”
