Lightweight Java EE for <Buzzword> Services

Java EE is not a hype. It is a well known player since 1999 – a quite long time but Java EE is just about to come off age.

“Modern” developers create micro or nano services, they use “state of the art” and “lightweight” frameworks. But when is a service micro or nano? When is a framework lightweight? How does Java EE fit in this modern world of software development?

In my opinion Java EE is a perfect choice for writing micro or nano services. In this talk I try to prove my statement. Live on stage I write two services with RESTful JSON APIs with only a few lines of code which communicate with each other and run the services using a local Docker cloud where you can see how these can be scaled up and down to manage fluctuating loads. Coding, building, deploying, scaling: fast and efficient!

To fully understand this talk the attendees should have basic knowledge of Java.
