Key FeaturesUnderstand the principles of modern Java EE and how to realize effective architecturesGain knowledge of how to design enterprise software in the age of automation, Continuous Delivery and Cloud platformsLearn about the reasoning and motivations behind state-of-the-art enterprise Java technology, that focuses on businessBook DescriptionJava EE 8 brings with it a load of features, mainly targeting newer architectures such as microservices, modernized security APIs, and cloud deployments. This book will teach you to design and develop modern, business-oriented applications using Java EE 8. It shows how to structure systems and applications, and how design patterns and Domain Driven Design aspects are realized in the age of Java EE 8. You will learn about the concepts and principles behind Java EE applications, and how to effect communication, persistence, technical and cross-cutting concerns, and asynchronous behavior.This book covers Continuous Delivery, DevOps, infrastructure-as-code, containers, container orchestration technologies, such as Docker and Kubernetes, and why and especially how Java EE fits into this world. It also covers the requirements behind containerized, zero-dependency applications and how modern Java EE application servers support these approaches. You will also learn about automated, fast, and reliable software tests, in different test levels, scopes, and test technologies. This book covers the prerequisites and challenges of distributed systems that lead to microservice, shared-nothing architectures. The challenges and solutions of consistency versus scalability will further lead us to event sourcing, event-driven architectures, and the CQRS principle. This book also includes the nuts and bolts of application performance as well as how to realize resilience, logging, monitoring and tracing in a modern enterprise world. Last but not least the demands of securing enterprise systems are covered.By the end, you will understand the ins and outs of Java EE so that you can make critical design decisions that not only live up to, but also surpass your clients' expectations.What you will learnWhat enterprise software engineers should focus onImplement applications, packages, and components in a modern wayDesign and structure application architecturesDiscover how to realize technical and cross-cutting aspectsGet to grips with containers and container orchestration technologyRealize zero-dependency, 12-factor, and Cloud-native applicationsImplement automated, fast, reliable, and maintainable software testsDiscover distributed system architectures and their requirementsAbout the AuthorSebastian Daschner is a Java freelancer working as a consultant and trainer and is enthusiastic about programming and Java (EE). He participates in the JCP, helping to form future Java EE standards, serving in the JSR 370 and 374 Expert Groups, and collaborating on various open source projects.
