High-Performance Java Microservices

Microservices have taken over as the preferred way to architect new enterprise systems. This is ideal for cloud deployments, giving maximum flexibility and the ability to dynamically scale different parts of the application independently. However, designing systems this way, even when using Java as the platform, is not without its challenges. Performance of microservices will have a significant impact on how successful an application is.

In this session, we’ll explore the challenges for Java-based microservices and explain solutions that will give you faster, more scalable applications. At the end you’ll have a clear picture of how to plan your next high-performance cloud-based application.

Getting the Most from Modern Java

Since JDK 9, there has been a release of the core Java platform every six months.  This has led to more features being delivered more quickly in Java than ever before in its 25-year history.

In this workshop, we'll explore the new features in modern Java development.  Specifically, from the Java language we'll cover:

  • Local variable type inference
  • Switch expressions
  • Text blocks
  • Records
  • Pattern matching for instanceof
  • Sealed classes

We'll also look at the important changes to the JVM and core class libraries that continue to make Java the most popular programming language on the planet
