Monoliths, macroservices, microservices, cloud-native and serverless... Where do we even start? If you are a Java developer, you will likely have to work with one, some, or even all of these deployment approaches. Does this mean learning multiple frameworks, tools and methods? It certainly looks that way, based on the many deployment-specific solutions being proposed to the Java development community.
In this presentation, we will look into these solutions, weighing their strengths and weaknesses. We will also contrast this with one-size-fits-all solutions being offered by modern open-source cloud-native Java runtimes like Open Liberty. Does it have the right technology to compete in microservice and serverless environments - can one runtime really do it all?
