In this interview, Bert Ertman discusses when and why companies should consider a microservices architecture. He offers three main considerations before switching to microservices.
In Strategy keynote, you will learn how to create the future with Java from leading Oracle experts in the Java development organization. They will showcase how Java is driving developer innovation, revolutionizing application development, and improving application services for IoT, enterprise architectures, and cloud computing.
In the Technical keynote, the architects of Java 8 will give you their insights into this revolutionary release, and start to reveal what is coming in Java 9, Java 10, and beyond.
A new article by Björn Müller, now up on otn/java, titled “Why, Where, and How JavaFX Makes Sense” incisively explores the intricacies of when, where, and how JavaFX is a good technology fit.
“Our experience proves that implementing an employee desktop front end with native technology is a valid approach and that JavaFX is a good fit.
* JavaFX is available on the leading desktop operating systems (Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X)
* Although it has gone through some painful changes, its evolution proves its vendor’s level of commitment.
* As the successor to Swing, it is being used by an increasing number of Java developers. Regardless of its future, it will benefit from a strong developer community.
* Compared to Swing, it provides a clear and clean architecture and features many enhancements: styling, event management, transitions, scene graph—to name a few.
* It provides the possibility of developing up-to-date user interfaces with animations, multitouch, and the like.
* It is based on a clear and clean language: Java.
* It provides all the professional Java tooling required to debug, analyze, profile, and log a client application.
* It enables a simple app-like installation on the client side, without any prerequisites.”
Müller provides a nuanced discussion of the kinds of architecture in which JavaFX should be embedded, its uses with JavaServer Faces, and reports on his own experiences using JavaFX.
