Dismiss the myth square

Java was created in 1995 and despite being over 25 years old, it’s still one of the most popular and widely used programming languages in the world. Due to its longevity – many myths around Java (now Jakarta EE) have circulated. In our “Dismiss the Myths” webinar series, we discuss these common myths and show you the programming language is still relevant, keeps up with the changes in the IT world, and that there is a future in Jakarta EE.

List of Sessions

Is Java EE Outdated and Dead? (16th June)

In this myth-busting webinar, Steve Millidge (founder of Payara), will show you why Java EE is not old, outdated, or dead. Find out:

  • What is Jakarta EE and how does it relate to Java EE?

  • The future plans for Jakarta EE and why you should use it

  • New features available in Jakarta EE

  • The core profile

  • How MicroProfile works with Jakarta EE to modernize your application development

If you’ve been hearing that Java EE is outdated – come to this webinar to see why that’s not true and how you can continue using your existing Java EE development skills to modernize your application development.

Are Java EE Application Servers Heavy (23rd June)

In this myth-busting webinar, Steve Millidge (founder of Payara), will show you that Java EE application servers are not resource-heavy or slow.  Watch live demonstrations of application servers that show it’s possible to have a small footprint and low resource usage in Jakarta EE runtimes. In this webinar:

  • See a new Jakarta EE (Java EE) runtime that allows for single jar deployment

  • Watch a demo of a small start up/small footprint Jakarta EE runtime

  • See a Jakarta EE application server that is not fat or heavy with high resource usage

If you’ve been hearing that Java EE application servers are all resource hogs and slow to start up  – come to this webinar to see why that’s not true and how you can continue using your existing Java EE development skills to modernize your application development.

Is Java EE Cloud-Native? (30 June)

In this myth-busting webinar, Steve Millidge (founder of Payara), will show you that Java EE IS cloud-native and can handle microservices and containers in the cloud. In this webinar, learn:

  • What is Cloud-Native?

  • How Jakarta EE (Java EE) applications run securely in the cloud

  • Why you should build applications, not runtimes

  • Watch a demo of Jakarta EE on Cloud

  • Watch a demo of scaling through Payara Micro in containers

  • How to keep your runtime easily up-to-date

  • Learn about an upcoming project, Payara Cloud, that separates the deployment from the runtime to make running Jakarta EE applications on the cloud even easier

If you’ve been hearing that Java EE is not cloud-native or it’s difficult to get your Java EE applications running in the cloud – come to this webinar to see why that’s not true and how you can continue using your existing Java EE development skills to modernize your application development.

Can Java EE do Microservices? (7 July)

In this myth-busting webinar, Steve Millidge (founder of Payara), will show you that Java EE can do microservices. In this webinar, learn:

  • What are microservices?

  • How JAX-RS API makes it easy to develop applications that use the REST architecture

  • Deployment models for microservices

  • How to use MicroProfile with Jakarta EE

  • 12 factor apps with Jakarta EE

If you’ve been hearing that Java EE is only for monolithic architecture – come to this webinar to see why that’s not true and how you can continue using your existing Java EE development skills to modernize your application development with microservices.

Do Java EE Standards Matter? (14 July)

In this myth-busting webinar, Steve Millidge (founder of Payara), will show you why standards like Java EE (Jakarta EE) are beneficial.  In this webinar, learn:

  • How standards help with vendor neutrality and why that is important

  • How standards help drive competition (and why that’s good for you)

  • How standards help you develop future proof applications

  • How a working group offers the opportunity to shape the future of the industry

If you’ve been thinking standards like Jakarta EE don’t matter, this webinar will show you how having standards gives you the opportunity to develop future proof applications, among other benefits.

Is the Java EE Deployment Model Out of Date? (21st July)

In this myth-busting webinar, Steve Millidge (founder of Payara), will show you why the Java EE (Jakarta EE) deployment model is not old fashioned or out of date.  In this webinar, learn:

  • Benefits of using thin wars over fat jars

    • Do you know what’s in your Spring fat jar?

    • Do you know who’s tracking security issues with Spring?

  • Security benefits of patched runtimes

  • Advantages of building container images to build applications, not infrastructure messaging

If you think you have to switch to Spring for a modern deployment model, this webinar will show you how the Jakarta EE deployment model using thin wars allows you to modernize your application development.
