Theft-Proof Java EE – Securing Your Java EE Enterprise Applications

An overview about the holistic approach to application security
├średev is just a couple of days away, and I was invited to give two presentations. One of them is about my favorite topic: Security and Java EE. It is designed to fulfill two goals. On the one side to introduce the typical Java EE developer to the overall application security process and main objectives. But also to look at the details about what Java EE has to offer when it comes to typical requirements. (more...)

Red Hat JBoss Engineers about Java EE, Container, Microservices and Testing

A lot of preparations went into this one and it has been given some times before, but this is actually the first time that Rafael and I get a (more...)

Deploying Java EE Microservices on OpenShift

I blogged about the simple JAX-RS microservice with WildFly Swarm yesterday. You learned how to build a so called "fat-jar" with Maven and also used the Maven Docker plugin to dockerize our microservice and run it locally on Docker Machine. This was a nice way to test things locally. What was missing so far is to put this into production. Let's look what there is to do to run yesterdays example on OpenShift Origin.

A WildFly Swarm JAX-RS Microservice in a Docker Container

Everybody is talking about microservices these days. And there are plenty of opinions and ideas and very few examples about how to apply those principles on an enterprise level. One thing is for sure, even at conferences just a couple of days ago, I rarely found anyone who was running a Docker container in production. At least a reasonable amount of hands went up when I asked about first experiences and if someone had played (more...)
