Open Java EE and Eclipse MicroProfile - A New Java Landscape

Session details
Session Type: 
Experience level: 

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).

Hi Kevin,

could you give a little more details on what you are going to cover in your talk?

Christian, I have updated the abstract with a bit more detail.  And, I tried to explain the difference between this session and Emily's presentation (which will be more demo-driven).  Hope this helps!  Thanks for your interest in Open EE and MicroProfile!
