The Liberty runtime is moving from a quarterly to a four-week release cycle. As a result, the buildpack will release new functions and fixes quicker. Users of the Liberty for Java buildpack will notice a few changes to the Liberty versions packaged with the buildpack.
In cloud-native Java applications, multiple microservices are running behind the application. If you have hundreds of services, how do you debug an individual request as it travels throughout a distributed system? Save your SREs headaches by enabling proper distributed tracing. Java MicroProfile's OpenTracing specifications makes it easier.
What’s involved in the migration of your traditional WebSphere apps to those based on WebSphere Liberty in the cloud? In this Think 2019 hands-on lab, you’ll learn how the IBM Cloud Transformation Advisor (included with IBM Cloud Private) can streamline migrations by scanning your app’s binaries, identifying compatibility issues, and generating required artifacts like the Kubernetes-required manifest.
Did you know that Open Liberty is a great match for your Spring Boot applications? But after you have this nicely packaged application, how do you deploy it into Pivotal environments? Whether its Pivotal Application Service (PAS) or Pivotal Container Service (PKS), Liberty has got you covered. This blog post walks through your options for each environment.
Small errors can propagate into large problems (especially in a microservice architecture in a distributed systems environment) if you don't plan for fault tolerance! This final entry compares and contrasts the Spring Boot and MicroProfile approaches to handle the inevitable.
In this blog series, we cover how to handle scalability for Liberty’s MicroProfile-based microservices, focusing on externalizing configuration, security, and fault tolerance. In this second entry in the series, you'll learn how to secure the REST APIs using MicroProfile JWT Propagation.
You want to have confidence in your cloud-based deployment of WebSphere Liberty on Kubernetes. Developers want an environment that's ready to go, administrators want an infrastructure that's trusted. Who wants to be in the business of stitching together component layers and then verifying they're compatible with each other? With IBM Cloud Paks, rely on a trusted and tested release with key components verified as a set.
To help us effectively implement REST, powerful languages like Java provide a vast library of convenient tools to use. Today's blog will highlight two features, MicroProfile's Rest Client 1.0 and JSON-B, and how to build them into your Java EE microservice application to help you achieve the benefits of cloud-based application performance, scalability, and simplicity.
