• Several Short Talks

    Start Time:

    May 7, 2014 11:00 PM

    The upcoming NEJUG meeting on May 8 will sport a collection of 30 minute talks on a range of topics, as described below. This is a departure from our regular one Lightning Talk (about 10 minutes) plus a Main Presentation (of about 90 minutes). The evening's schedule is set up to cover a wide range of relevant and interesting topics for our members and we expect this format to become a regular once- or twice-a-year occurance.


    The first two talks, regarding Java 8, are set up to compliment each other, first with a broad overview and then with a focused review of the new time/date API. After the break, we will follow up on last month's CORS Lightning Talk with a more in-depth presentation, and then finish up with an advance discussion of how the functional language mechanism of monads can be applied to Java (including how Java significantly limits how much of the monad concept can be "imported").


    Java 8 - Six Months into the New World (by Kyle) - In March 2014, Java 8 was released to the world after more than 3 year of development. A number of exciting new features were added to the language and a few notable changes were made to the JVM that every Java developer will want to be aware of. In this presentation I'll guide you through what's new and will provide brief demonstrations of how Java 8 will enable you to write cleaner code that your colleagues and future self will appreciate.


    Java 8 - The New Date and Time API (by Sualeh) - We will briefly go over what is wrong in the current Java date and time support. Then we will clarify date and time concepts, and show how the new Java 8 Date and Time API makes working with dates and times much better.


    CORS (by Mahesh) - With  ever increasing demand for rich, distributed and dynamic content  by Web Applications, W3C concepts like CORS (Cross Origin Resource Sharing)  and Web Sockets are enabling such dynamic content access/delivery possible by applications.  Right off the shelf, most application servers and API do not provide necessary HTTP Filters for enabling CORS communications.  In this session we will look at  real world applications for CORS and how to enable CORS for your Java Enterprise Servers  for allowing  business applications/data/API accessible using CORS requests by Web Browsers.


    Monads in Java (by Morgan) - After explaining what monads are, this talk will explore what parts can be implemented within the Java language and how even that limited use can simplify several types of coding problems.

    MeetUp Registration: Creating Resilient Micro-Services.

    The foundation of Application Resiliency is often found in the application code where Fault Tolerance is baked into the application at the time of designing and coding….

    This presentation starts with building resiliency ground-up by baking the basic crucial patterns into the application. Resiliency4j provides the out of the box integration with Spring Boot, a defacto standard micro-service framework.

    The patterns discussed include:

    • Rate Limiter
    • Retry
    • Bulkhead
    • Circuit Breaker
    • Timeouts
    • Distilling Java Containers

    Three evolutionary ecosystems work well together: Java, Containers, and Kubernetes. Past versions of Java were never designed to be "container aware." This has led some to stray from the JVM to consider other shiny languages for Containers.

    But wait, let’s discover what Java 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 (…) has done to get our applications into efficiently distilled containers that pack nicely into Kubernetes.
