It was year 1999 when EJBoss made it’s debut as an alternative opensource J2EE implementation. 15+ years is more than a lifetime in technology terms and yet the JBoss Application Server project, renamed in 2013 into WildFly has managed to thrive and stay relevant by evolving into the Swiss Army Knife of Application Servers.dandreadis
In this talk we are going to look at the latest developments in WildFly and get an introduction to it’s sister project called WildFly Swarm. WildFly provides a robust, modular, lightweight, fully manageable and fast runtime, implementing the complete set of Java EE7 APIs. WildFly Swarm on the other hand gives you the ability to pick and choose only the server parts you need and bundle them with your application to create fat jars easy to deploy as microservices.
Thus with WildFly & WildFly Swarm you get the richness and maturity of Java EE combined with extreme flexibility about your deployment options in traditional setups or dynamic cloud environments.
Who’s said Java EE needs to be boring?
