3 Must See Talks for Cloud Native Java Developers at EclipseCon 2022

Monday, August 15, 2022 - 14:13 by Serina El Salibi

EclipseCon is the leading conference for developers, architects, and open source business leaders to learn about Eclipse technologies, share best practices, and more.

This year’s event has a Cloud Native Technologies track that covers everything you need to know about developing cloud native applications and microservices.

Some of the talks include: 

Java RPC: A Better Way To gRPC In Java

Speaker: Aleksandar Seovic (Oracle)

Jakarta gRPC aims to do for Java gRPC services what JAX-RS did for REST: it makes them easier to implement, by allowing developers to annotate service classes and methods, and by generating client-side proxies automatically, based on the annotated Java interface. It also allows them to integrate and play nicely with other Jakarta specs, such as CDI and Config, which is something native, proto-based gRPC services do not do very well.

Jakarta EE 10 - Simplicity For Modern & Lightweight Cloud Applications

Speaker: Ivar Grimstad (Eclipse Foundation)

Jakarta EE 10 is packed with new features for simple development of modern, lightweight enterprise Java applications for the Cloud. The new Jakarta EE Core Profile enables developers to develop microservices based on Jakarta EE technologies with runtimes smaller than ever. Jakarta EE Core Profile even makes it possible to compile Jakarta EE applications to native images to reduce the footprint even further.

Microprofile: Current & Future

Speaker: Emily Jiang (IBM)

MicroProfile 5.0 aligns with the latest Jakarta EE release, Jakarta EE 9.1. With this release, you will be able to use jakarta.* namespaces in your applications. Afterwards, MicroProfile 5.1 and 6.0 are in the planning phase. The main focus is Metrics, Telemetry Tracing and Jakarta EE 10 alignment. This session will bring you up to date with the latest release of MicroProfile with a live demo on Open Liberty. Finally, Emily will discuss the future direction of MicroProfile.
