Java EE is currently going through its biggest change in a decade as it moves to an open foundation. If this works out well it will accelerate the platform's evolution towards microservices through the work started in the Eclipse MicroProfile a year ago. The MicroProfile initiative was formed to inject new pace and innovation into the enterprise Java landscape and is having the desired impact. This session will describe the technologies defined in MicroProfile, how we expect them to define the next version of Java EE, and how to take advantage of them with WebSphere.
Note that this session is tightly coupled with session "Resilient Java Microservices with Eclipse MicroProfile". We'll focus on the background and supporting information in this "Enterprise Java Landscape" session, with more live demo coding examples in the follow-on session (using Open Liberty and MicroProfile 1.2).
