Java EE 7 in Production at Commerzbank

Guest Author

One of the most important things to do at this stage of the life-cycle of Java EE is highlight successful adoption stories at a regular cadence. We have been doing just that for a long time through our adoption stories blog, this humble blog as well as JavaOne. In the past few months celebrated Java EE advocate and Java Champion Adam Bien has been really helping out in this regard as well through his popular blog. One of the recent cases Adam highlighted is production Java EE 7 usage at Commerzbank.

For those unaware, Commerzbank is one of the largest international financial institutions based in Germany. The bank implements a number of applications based on Java EE 7 and AngularJS. The front end AngularJS application communicates securely with the back-end using REST powered by JAX-RS and Java EE 7. Timo, a senior engineer with Commerzbank, noted the simplicity, ease-of-use and productivity offered by Java EE 7. He also noted very lightweight war deployments and lack of any complex application dependencies with Java EE. The team also utilizes Java SE 8, NetBeans and Jenkins. You can read the full details of the adoption story on Adam's blog.

JavaOne 2015 was particularly good in terms of compelling Java EE adoption story sessions. We will share the details of those stories here, including session videos, in the coming weeks and months.

If you have a similarly great Java EE adoption story to share with the community (particularly migration stories from other technologies), please do feel encouraged to reach out. In the spirit of Java EE centric vendor neutrality, what Java EE implementation or tool set you choose does not matter at all and neither does which part of the globe you are in.

    Working at a bank too, I'm wondering which application server they use? We have the limitation to only use products with commercial support available, which makes the range of JEE7 servers to chose from quite small.

    Best Regards,

    From the interview it seems they use a mix of WildFly and JBoss EAP. Quite common for "JBoss shops".
