Architecting Modern Java EE Applications

By: Sebastian Daschner

Overview of this book

Java 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.

Eclipse Enterprise for Java

In September 2017, just before publishing this book, Oracle, the steward of Java EE and the JCP, announced to move the Java EE platform and its standards to an Open Source Foundation, what emerged in Eclipse Enterprise for Java (EE4J). The plans aim to lower the barrier for companies and developers who would like to contribute and to ultimately enable to a more open technology.

However the realization of these plans will look, it's important to mention that the plans include the preservation of the nature of the platform. The approaches and techniques presented in this book will hold true in the future of enterprise Java.

I can repeat my message of what I have said in the past about participation within the JCP. However the manifestation of the standardization process of Enterprise Java looks, I encourage engineers and companies to have a look into Eclipse Enterprise for Java and to participate in defining enterprise standards. The collective knowledge and real...
