Tour through the history of middleware from old architectures to cloud-native middleware microservices leveraging Docker, Kubernetes, Cloudfoundry.
Microservices are the next step after SOA: Services implement a limited set of functions. Services are developed, deployed and scaled independently. Continuous Delivery automates deployments. This way you get shorter time to results and increased flexibility. Containers improve these even more offering a very lightweight and flexible deployment option.
In the middleware world, you use concepts and tools such as an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), Complex Event Processing (CEP), Business Process Management (BPM) or API Gateways. Many people still think about complex, heavyweight central brokers. However, Microservices and containers are relevant not just for custom self-developed applications, but they are also a key requirement to make the middleware world more flexible, agile and automated.
This session focuses on live coding to demonstrate how to develop, deploy and operate cloud-native microservices in the middleware world. The live demos leverage frameworks and tools such as Docker, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, Consul, Spring Cloud Config, Eureka and Hystrix.
