Java EE Monolith to Cloud-Ready Architecture: Lessons from the Drools/jBPM Ecosystem

Java EE Monolith to Cloud-Ready Architecture: Lessons from the Drools/jBPM Ecosystem

We’ve heard a lot of hype about microservices and why we all should embrace them and design our software as suites of independently deployable services. However, it is common sense that there is a significant trade-off between this architectural style and effectively splitting existing monoliths. This session shows how the Java EE programming model significantly enables decoupling monoliths; how to distribute this programming model in a cloud-ready environment; the challenges related to this migration in the Drools/jBPM ecosystem; and how and why Red Hat has to redesign its cluster technology, file systems, CDI event distribution, web stack, and Maven as microservices.
