Optimize your applications to the max with Jakarta EE and MicroProfile

Track: JakartaEE
Abstract
When using complementary tools for optimal utilization in containers and scalable infrastructures, you can achieve optimal value when developing and running enterprise software. Jakarta EE’s mechanics and application server runtimes are perfect tools for achieving this goal, especially when complemented with MicroProfile. This applies whether you are building monoliths, microservices, or anything in between. Attendees will learn how to optimally build, run and deploy such enterprise applications. Therefore, the session will show little application code, but focus on the concepts, tools, and configurations that are applicable. I will also compare some key concepts with competitors like Spring Framework to emphasize the benefits and downsides.
