At that time it was OpenEJB and later became TomEE. Jon worked on numerous features including EJB 3.1 compliance, OpenEJB Eclipse Plug-in, early Tomcat 7 integration (that became the basis for TomEE) and the first version of the TomEE Arquillian adapter. Over the years he contributed technical write-ups to JAX Magazine and the Tomitribe blog. Jon is a speaker at local JUGs, JAX London and ApacheCon.
Microprofile is a new platform definition that optimizes Enterprise Java for a microservices architecture and delivers application portability across multiple runtimes. You can use a subset of the Java EE spec to develop Microprofile applications, with JAX-RS, CDI and JSON-P. Now you need to make it highly available and scalable across a large number of machines. The session will feature a live coding demo where we will turn this Microprofile application, into a fully clustered application using a CDI extension and producers to integrate Hazelcast as a JCache provider. Finally, to show you how light it is, we will run the entire cluster in a set up of Raspberry PI's.
Moderator Ken Finnigan is joined by special guests for this panel session delving into Eclipse MicroProfile.
Eclipse MicroProfile is bridging the gap between Enterprise Java and Microservices, fostered through open collaboration of the Enterprise Java community. Though still being in its infancy, great strides have been taken already with many more to follow.
The panel will briefly cover what has been achieved in the first year since inception, and also cover upcoming releases and proposals being worked on in the community. Most of the BOF will be our panel answering questions from you, the community, about where Eclipse MicroProfile is heading and general discussion of ideas that the community considers important for Eclipse MicroProfile.
