DevNation Tech Talks are hosted by the Red Hat technologists who create our products. These sessions include real solutions plus code and sample projects to help you get started. In this talk, you’ll learn about using Java with containers from Markus Eisele and Burr Sutter.
Java in 2019 was predicted to be business as usual by many. New Java releases came out as planned, AdoptOpenJDK became the main trustful source of binaries, and Oracle fought for the trademark again by preventing the use of
javax as a namespace.
Yes, everything looked like it would be a silent year for Java, but one thing seems obvious. Java's popularity is not gaining any more traction. New language features keep it up-to-date but people are getting more selective when it comes to implementation choices—especially in the age of containers and cloud infrastructure.
This talk walks you through the why and how of Java in containers. We will cover image size, and development and deployment processes.
