Java Gets Cloudy

Most of the books I've seen so far about cloud computing are full of advice, "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" about cloud concepts and architecture, security recommendations, and policy compliance, but are not much in the "how" department. Of course, there are multiple perspectives from which to view the cloud -- end user, IaaS or PaaS provider, services broker, and, of course, developers. So, how do you actually build "cloud applications"? And what programming languages and APIs should developers use to build them? Well, there are some answers available.

Recently published is Code in the Cloud: Programming the Google App Engine, by Mark C. Chu-Carroll of Google. He starts his book with cloud programming examples written in Python, but then jumps to Java and the Google Web Toolkit, a very useful set of Java class libraries and widgets that generate fast JavaScript-based Web applications.

But that's not all; JCP, the caretakers of the Java technical standards, recently approved the Java EE 7 Platform Java Specification Request which will enable Java EE applications to support the multi-tenant and elastic features required for cloud computing solutions. Oracle's developers and customers, along with those of IBM, Red Hat, and even SAP, are pleased to see the continuing evolution and support of Java technology into "the Cloud".

Hmmm..."Write Once, Run in the Cloud" has a nice ring to it, don't you think?

About

The purpose of this blog is to highlight and to explore general issues around "Cloud Computing" -- its benefits, risks, and component technologies -- and how they are evolving. I'll also periodically comment (of course!) on Oracle's Cloud Computing capabilities, resources, and cloud-related events. -- Harry J Foxwell, PhD, Principal Consultant for Cloud Computing, Oracle Public Sector HW
