Deploy and update Jakarta EE & MicroProfile applications at light speed with Paketo
Jamie Coleman is a software developer and Advocate for Open Liberty, MicroProfile and Jakarta EE based at IBM’s R&D Laboratory in Hursley, UK. He is a subject matter expert in containerised solutions and takes a keen interest in emerging technologies with experience in Maven, git, Jenkins and microservice architecture. He fell in love with Java at University and has gone on to talk at many conferences about using Java with microservices. He has worked on a wide variety of projects such as modernising CICS mainframe testing infrastructure, creating and automating the creation of Docker images for IBM’s products, contributing to a DevOps pipeline offering and creating web applications for events at the Lab. His recent passion is around raising awareness about energy consumption of technology and discovering ways to help reduce technologies carbon footprint.
More developers are using Polyglot programming models with their application architecture and why should they not use the language that makes sense for a specific task. This is where we introduce Paketo, the open-source tool that enables a developer to automatically detect what language they are using and build a runnable container image with that application and a runtime to run said application.
In this talk we will talk about what Paketo’s goals are, the benefits it can bring and a demo of how to easily get started taking a MicroProfile and Jakarta EE application and deploy it in a container using Paketo with the Open Liberty Runtime.
