Modern Java EE Design Patterns
Modern Java EE Design Patterns

With the ascent of DevOps, microservices, containers, and cloud-based development platforms, the gap between state-of-the-art solutions and the technology that enterprises typically support has greatly increased. But as Markus Eisele explains in this O'Reilly report, some enterprises are now looking to bridge that gap by building microservice-based architectures on top of Java EE. Can it be done? Is it even a good idea? Eisele thoroughly explores the possibility and provides savvy advice for enterprises that want to move ahead. The issue is complex: Java EE wasn't built with the distributed application approach in mind, but rather as one monolithic server runtime or cluster hosting many different applications. If you're part of an enterprise development team investigating the use of microservices with Java EE, this book will help you: - Understand the challenges of starting a greenfield development vs tearing apart an existing brownfield application into services; - Examine your b ...
