Fat JAR smackdown | DevNation Tech Talk

You've heard of Fat/Uber JARs and are probably building them today. But every time you build one, a tree is chopped down in the forest to power the compute, disk and networking resources needed to deploy it to your production systems. In this session, we'll explore the benefits and costs of Fat JAR packaging and demonstrate various options for slimming your apps and saving those trees using popular frameworks like Wildfly Swarm, Dropwizard, Spring Boot and Eclipse Vert.x.
