It doesn't suit Reza Rahman to physically attend the JUG and we are still looking for a new location so in light of that we thought it would make sense to have him do a virtual talk for us.

We will likely use Youtube Live Stream/Hangouts or something equivalent. Instructions to join will be sent out prior to the meeting.

Reza will be speaking on "Down-to-Earth Microservices with Java EE"



Microservices seems to have become the new kid of the buzzword block in our ever colorful industry. In this session we will explore what microservices really mean within the relatively well established context of distributed computing/SOA, when they make sense and how to develop them using the lightweight, simple, productive Java EE programming model.

We'll explore microservices using a simple but representative example using Java EE. You'll see how the Java EE programming model and APIs like JAX-RS, WebSocket, JSON-P, Bean Validation, CDI, JPA, EJB 3, JMS 2 and JTA aligns with the concept of microservices.

It may or may not surprise you to learn in the end that you already know more about microservices than you realize and that it is an architectural style that does not really require you to learn an entirely new tool set beyond the ones you already have. You might even see that Java EE is a particularly powerful and elegant tool set for developing microservices.
