For cloud-native applications, Kubernetes and Istio deliver a lot of key functionality out of the box which works generically for microservices, no matter in which language they have been implemented, and independent from the application logic. However, some cloud-native functionality cannot be covered by orchestration frameworks and service meshes. Instead, it needs to be handled in the business logic of the microservices, for example application-specific failover functionality, metrics and fine-grained authorization.

In this session, we will demonstrate how to build microservices with Java EE and Eclipse MicroProfile and how to run and operate them on Kubernetes and Istio. MicroProfile also comes with convenience functionality that you typically need when developing microservices, for example invocations and implementations of REST APIs including their documentation. Attend this session to see how we walk you through a scalable and resilient sample application that can be run in your local Kubernetes environment or on any other Kubernetes cluster.
