Java EE is the killer platform for development of UI APIs. In this code driven session at Voxxed Days Bucharest, Adam Bien codes and compares Angular 2, React JS, Polymer and plain JavaScript approaches to implement SPAs with RESTful microservice backend running on docker. We then caught up with Adam right after and asked him […]

By Martijn van Dongen. Serverless is considered the successor to containers. And while it’s heavily promoted as the next great thing, it’s not the best fit for every use case. Understanding the pitfalls and disadvantages of serverless will make it much easier to identify use cases that are a good fit. This post offers some technology […]

This blog has explained the following concepts for serverless applications so far: Serverless FaaS with AWS Lambda and Java AWS IoT Button, Lambda and Couchbase The third blog in serverless series will explain how to create a simple microservice using Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda and Couchbase. Read previous blogs for more context on AWS Lambda. Amazon API Gateway […]

Amazon Web Services introduced Serverless Application Model, or SAM, a couple of months ago. It defines simplified syntax for expressing serverless resources. SAM extends AWS CloudFormation to add support for API Gateway, AWS Lambda and Amazon DynamoDB. This blog will show how to create a simple microservice using SAM. Of course, we’ll use Couchbase instead of DynamoDB! This […]

What is Serverless Architecture? Serverless architecture runs custom code in ephemeral containers that are fully managed by a 3rd party. The custom code is typically a small part of a complete application. It is also called as function. This gives another name for serverless architecture as Function as a Service (FaaS). The container is ephemeral because it may only last for […]

Serverless architecture is rising in popularity, in a happy union that joins business needs and pay-as-you-go services with a break from excess configuration on the technical side. Last week we revisited AWS Lambda. This week we look at IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk. OpenWhisk is open source OpenWhisk is an event-driven open source platform for developers. The code can be […]

Serverless platforms are coming: care less about the infrastructure and more about the code. At Devoxx UK 2016, Ryan Cuprak of Dassault Systemes spoke to Voxxed’s Arun Gupta on serverless architecture using Amazon Lambda before his presentation. How is this ‘lambda’ different? It’s quite a bit different. It’s actually serverless coding in the cloud. So you deploy your […]

Amazon Lambda Amazon Lambda is shaking-up Java server-side development. Now you can write services in the cloud without having to think about app servers or containers. This is revolutionary. This session will cover Amazon Lambda and some of the other services that will reduce the amount of code and infrastructure you have to write and maintain. […]
