Abstract: Java in 2019 was predicted to be business as usual by many. We saw new Java releases coming out as planned, AdoptOpenJDK becoming the main trustful source of binaries, and Oracle fighting for the trademark again by preventing the use of javax as namespace. Everything looked like it would be a silent year for Java, but one thing is 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 talk about image size and development and deployment processes.
