Practical Cloud-Native Java Development with MicroProfile

For the past six months, I’ve had the privilege to work with some amazing co-authors (Emily Jiang, John Alcorn, David Chan and Alasdair Nottingham) and a super-supportive publisher (Packt) to produce the definitive guide to Java Cloud-native development.

So, what’s in it? My co-authors and I don’t like fluff – it’s titled Practical for a reason. The book takes a deep dive into MicroProfile technologies – this include some of the technologies that MP “borrowed” from Jakarta (REST, CDI, JSON-P/B) as well as the original MicroProfile technologies like Rest Client, Config, Fault Tolerance, Metrics, etc. and some of the standalone MP technologies like GraphQL and LRA. But this book isn’t a textbook – there are practical examples with a real-world application at the core.

We also cover deployment strategies like how to run and test your application in open source servers like Open Liberty – then deploy in Docker and Kubernetes. All of the examples in the book are available in GitHub.

So, where can I get it? I’m glad you asked! It’s available for pre-sale on Amazon and Packt. It’s scheduled to release in September, 2021.

Anything else you can tell me about it? You bet! I plan to post some excerpts from the book on this site in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!
