The JavaOne Content Catalog is live and full of hundreds of great sessions, which, admittedly, can seem a bit overwhelming. With so many sessions, where do you start looking? Well, the best place to start is with an understanding of the tracks being offered at this year’s conference. Each track tackles a different side of the Java technologies, and this is the fourth post in a series explaining the different tracks featured at this year’s JavaOne conference and what each track has to offer. Last week, we looked at the Emerging Languages track. Today, let’s look at the Java, DevOps, and the Cloud track and a few featured sessions.
On this track, Antoine Chambille from Quartet Financial Systems and Amir Javanshir from Oracle will be presenting “Operating a 16-Terabyte JVM. . .and Living to Tell the Tale.” Though the typical limit set on the JVM by most people peaks out at about 100GB, Antoine and Amir will tell you how they got it to work with 16TB of memory using an M6-32 SPARC’s 384 cores to run a large credit risk use case. Also offered on the Java, DevOps, and the Cloud track is “Writing Microservices in Java: Best Practices and Common Mistakes” by Derek Ashmore from the STA Group. Attend this session to learn how to make more resilient and supportable microservices by learning tips and tricks and how to avoid common mistakes. All examples in this session will be shown in Java.
In cloud technologies, Mark Heckler from Oracle and Jose Pereda from Gluon are hosting “Autonomous Vehicles: Build Cloud-Connected Robots with Java.” See off-the-shelf components become a robotic vehicle, and then learn to use Java Embedded and JavaFX to integrate sensors, add autonomous capability, and add monitoring capability to your Android or iOS device by using the cloud. At the end of the session, you’ll hear about the presenters’ current work with these technologies and where they are headed.
