Applied Domain-Driven Design Blueprints for Jakarta EE

Applied Domain-Driven Design Blueprints for Jakarta EE

Domain-Driven Design (DDD) is an architectural approach that strongly focuses on materializing the business domain in enterprise software through disciplined object-oriented analysis. This session demonstrates first-hand how DDD can be elegantly implemented using Jakarta EE via an open source project named Cargo Tracker.

Cargo Tracker maps DDD concepts like entities, value objects, aggregates and repositories to Jakarta EE code examples in a realistic application. We will also see how DDD concepts like the bounded context are invaluable to designing pragmatic microservices.

    The Cargo Tracker Project • J2EE popularized the idea of

    server-side architectures • J2EE Blue Prints (aka “Java Pet Store”) • J2EE Blue Prints had profound impact, but not without it’s problems • Many of the paradigms are alive and well even today • Encumbered by the immaturity of the technology/industry • Domain-Driven Design (DDD) emphasizes a return to the roots of object oriented analysis and design • Java EE’s lightweight programming model fits DDD philosophy well • The Cargo Tracker project completes the circle Blue Prints Reborn

    Summary • DDD great architectural blueprint for server-side applications •

    Java EE very natural fit for DDD • Cargo Tracker great place to get started with DDD and Java EE
