Mike Croft, Payara Support Engineer, will be speaking at the Devoxx Belgium Conference in Antwerp, 7-11 November 2016.
Introducing the MicroProfile
(with David Belvins & Andy Gumbrecht )
MicroProfile is not just a new buzzword. It's a serious collaboration to evolve Enterprise Java in a Microservices world, supported by such companies as Red Hat, IBM, LJC, Payara and Tomitribe. Since its launch in June the MicroProfile collaboration has gained the attention and participation from the wider Enterprise Java community including members of Spring, JUGs and several hundred developers completing the online poll and joining the discussions. Slated as a mix of APIs including CDI, JAX-RS and WebSockets, standards including OAuth 2.0 and JWT, deployment concepts including Uber-Jars, the MicroProfile has quickly morphed based on community feedback. In this this session we’ll explore what started the initiative, what it hopes to achieve, the community discussion and focuses thus far and how to get involved. We’ll detail the final roadmap the MicroProfile 1.0, possibilities for beyond and show what you can do with the MicroProfile today.
A MicroProfile for Micro Services
Back in June Payara joined Red Hat, IBM, Tomitribe and the LJC to announce the MicroProfile - a new collaboration aimed at making a lightweight runtime to power microservice architectures with existing enterprise Java APIs: JAX-RS, CDI and JSON-P.
The release date for the first version is targeted to September, so we should have several implementations of the new profile ready for consumption by Devoxx 2016!
This talk will focus on the Payara implementation, but also talk more generically about the microprofile and have an opportunity for questions about the future of the effort from one of the vendors involved.
Microprofile.io: An open community discussion
(with David Blevins & Heiko Braun)
Microprofile is an open collaboration leveraging the power of the Java community to address the needs of modern Enterprise Java users. Which standards would you want in a microservices profile? What does matter to you?
In this BOF we look at the current state of affairs, the community responses so far and engage in an open discussion about ways to move forward.
