Develop microservice-based applications in Java EE with MicroProfile and OpenShift
Building on Red Hat Application Development I: Programming in Java EE (JB183), the introductory course for Java EE application development, Red Hat Application Development II: Implementing Microservice Architectures (JB283) emphasizes learning architectural principles and implementing microservices in Java EE, primarily based on MicroProfile with WildFly Swarm and OpenShift.
You will build on Java EE application development fundamentals and focus on how to develop, monitor, test, and deploy modern microservices applications. Many enterprises are looking for a way to take advantage of cloud-native architectures, but many do not know the best way to go about it. These enterprises have monolithic applications written in Java Enterprise Edition (JEE).
- This course is designed for Java developers.
- Attend Red Hat Application Development I: Programming in Java EE (JB183) or demonstrate equivalent experience
- Be proficient in using an integrated development environment such as Red Hat®Developer Studio or Eclipse
- Experience with Maven is recommended, but not required
Impact on the organization
Many organizations are struggling with how to make the move from monolithic applications to applications based on microservices, as well as how to reorganize their development paradigm to reap the benefits of microservice development in a DevOps economy. In particular, many organizations are invested in Java programming frameworks and Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform. This course exposes you to the Wildfly Swarm runtime for streamlined deployment on OpenShift clusters.
