From Red Hat
John has been a Java developer for 20 years. During this time he as worked for Sun Microsystems and Oracle as the Java EE and GlassFish Server Product Manager. More recently he has moved to Red Hat where he is a product manager for next-generation platforms like WIldFly Swarm, Vert.x, and the microservices strategy in general. John is also an instructor at UC Irvine Extension.
While there are likely a dozen or more Java-based microservice / cloud native initiatives in the industry, Eclipse MicroProfile provides a platform for Java developers to collaborate and innovate on areas of common interest. This BOF will give a short overview of MicroProfile and how it plans to optimize microservices for Enterprise Java, followed by a short Q&A to answer any clarifying questions, and the remainder of the time spent on collaborating to prioritize features for the next release.
While MicroProfile's first release is founded in Java EE (CDI + JSON-P + JAX-RS), it is not intended to remain a subset of Java EE 7 (or 8). The intent is to collaborate and innovate as a community in the context of a microservices architecture across the 5 (and growing) MicroProfile implementations today. The end goal of MicroProfile is to feed the Java Community Process (JCP) with JSR submissions backed by well-thought-out concepts and even implementations that developers and enterprises can rely on.
Come collaborate with your fellow MicroProfilers to move Enterprise Java microservices forward.
