WebSphere Liberty: Developing Java EE applications for the cloud

Share this post:

How do you develop Java EE applications for Bluemix?

Is this happening to you? You’re familiar with some of the traditional on-premise Java EE application servers (like traditional IBM WebSphere Application Server, WebLogic, JBoss, and so on), and now your organization is transitioning to the cloud. But the as-a-service versions of your platforms are similar-to-but-not-entirely-the-same-as what you’re used to, and the cloud models are so dynamic that you’re never sure what builds to use, or what features will work, or even what to call things (Is it a profile? Is it a server?).

If you’re finding this to-the-cloud learning curve frustrating, help is here. And you’re looking at it.

This is the beginning of a series of blog posts created to help flatten that learning curve by quickly getting you to the information you need that can be challenging to find. It’ll help you make the journey from traditional WebSphere Application Server, to WebSphere Liberty, and ultimately to IBM Bluemix. Some of this you’ll already know–skip those parts. Use the rest of these posts to become familiar with these three aspects:

The first two series are useful to all Liberty developers, while the third one applies specifically to those using Bluemix. To follow the entire series, search on the #websphere-liberty-series tag.
