    Speaker: Venkat Subramaniam

    Java is a language in evolution. There are a handful of language changes in Java 9 and 10 plus several JDK changes in 9, 10, 11, and 12. Some of these changes are significant in that they allow us to do things more effectively than before. The difference can be anywhere from reducing code to avoiding errors that come from verbosity. In this presentation we will explore the language changes first. Then we will visit the additions to the JDK. Along the way we will also look at a few things that have been removed from Java as well.

    Any chance this will be recorded ? I’ve registered but there is a small chance that I won’t be able to make it in time

    Where can I find the recording of this meeting? I looked at vimeo.com/nejug, but could find no recent postings there at all.

    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.
