Containerizing Java EE 8 Apps Using Docker and Kubernetes [Video]

More Information
  • Package, distribute, and run applications in Docker containers
  • Install and configure containerized Java EE application servers
  • Deploy enterprise applications as Kubernetes pods, deployments, and services
  • Leverage Kubernetes' production-readiness
  • Configure containerized and orchestrated applications
  • Realize persistence in cluster environments
  • Access orchestrated external systems
  • Troubleshoot containers and orchestration environments

Some enterprise developers might wonder whether the Java EE platform is eligible for realizing modern, containerized enterprise applications that run in cloud offerings. A lot of enterprises migrate their runtime environments to platforms that are based on Docker and Kubernetes.

Container technologies, in combination with orchestration, provide significant advantages in the way companies deploy and operate their enterprise software.

This raises the question: Are enterprise applications developed with Java EE eligible for these technologies; if so, how can this transition be accomplished?

This course will show you how it is possible to develop Java EE 8 applications that run in containers. We will see why Java EE specifically is a natural fit for containers.

This course starts with practical ways on how you can use Docker in Java EE 8 and how to troubleshoot containers. You will run Java EE in containers. This course will also teach you how to configure containerized applications. Also you will orchestrate containers using Kubernetes.

By the end of the course, you will be able to Integrate Java EE applications into Kubernetes.
