It is hard to be pragmatic without delivering “microservices” on Java EE 7. Microservices are already the default architecture for many focussed Java EE 5+ projects. After introducing the concepts of micro services and pragmatic Java EE 7 architectures on Java 8, I will implement an application live and demonstrate “cloud inspired” deployments on services like docker. Because Java EE 7 applications are skinny and nimble, “micro” does not apply any more. Lets talk about “pico”. Questions are going to be answered in real time. Filmed at Devoxx 2014.
