Three common pitfalls in microservice integration and how to avoid them
Integrating microservices and taming distributed systems is hard. In this talk, Bernd Rucker will present three challenges he's observed in real-life projects and discuss how to avoid them. 1. Communication is complex. With everything being distributed failures are normal so you need sophisticated failure handling strategies (e.g. stateful retry). 2. Asynchronicity requires you to handle timeouts. This is not only about milliseconds, systems get much more resilient when you can wait for minutes, hours or even longer. 3. Distributed transactions cannot simply be delegated to protocols like XA. So you need to solve the requirement to retain consistency in case of failures. Bio: Bernd Rucker has 15+ years in software development, helping automate highly scalable core workflows at global companies including T-Mobile, Lufthansa and Zalando. He is a co-founder and developer advocate of Camunda, an open source software company reinventing workflow automation. He co-authored "Real-Life BPMN," a popular book about workflow modeling and automation, now in its fifth edition and available in English, German and Spanish. He is currently focused on new workflow automation paradigms that fit into modern architectures around distributed systems, microservices, domain-driven design, event-driven architecture and reactive systems.

What we're about

This is a social networking group for NYC area Java developers, managers, recruiters, basically anyone with an interest in Java technologies. We feature technical presentations. Feel free to bring a presentation, a demo, flyers, make an announcement or ask questions. We usually adjourn to a nearby bar afterwards

The NYC Java Study Groups JUG is the sponsor of the NYC Java Meetup and it's traditional monthly general meetings (for over 22 years) and the NYC Java Monthly Meetup are now one in the same. Study groups include: the Java Mobile study group (featuring the open source project) as well as Java certification, Design Patterns / JEE (study groups on hiatus if interested contact organizer) To learn more visit:
