A long time ago J2EE and especially application servers were considered to be too bloated and "heavyweight". It could be quite tedious and discouraging for developers to use that technology for developing applications. But since the name change to Java EE that assumption is not true anymore. This session shows the benefits developing against a well-established standard has, what makes a framework "lightweight" and how a lightweight yet comprehensive solution for enterprise application could look like. Most of the time will be spent live-coding and comparing different approaches.
In this session I will explain what makes an enterprise application framework "lightweight" in terms of developer productivity and development processes. I'll compare several approaches in live-coding and I'll show why plain Java EE 7 & Java 8 is one of the most productive solutions. Furthermore I'll show how using Java EE affects a Continuous Delivery pipeline with container technologies.
