In the Java ecosystem, we have historically been enamored by the concept of the “Application Server,” the runtime engine that not only gave us portable APIs (e.g. JMS, JAX-RS, JSF, EJB) but also gave us critical runtime infrastructure for things like farm deployments, configuration, load-balancing, fail-over, distributed management and monitoring.
In this session, we are going to demonstrate how Kubernetes and OpenShift give you the critical runtime infrastructure you need for JVM-based applications whether they be Java EE, Spring, MicroProfile, Vert.x, Kotlin, etc. because in a cloud-native world, your APIs can be whatever best fit your project’s requirements.
