J4K is an industry leading conference that combines the best of open source and middleware communities for developing applications on Kubernetes.

  • Learn about the latest Java innovations on Kubernetes from industry and community leaders
  • Get hands-on experience by participating in workshops and labs
  • Network with colleagues and community members and learn how to contribute to open source projects that optimize Java applications on Kubernetes

Join us October 6 for the following sessions:

Modernizing critical Java workloads to cloud-native on Kubernetes
Wed. Oct 6, 2021, 3:00 PM – 3:35 PM 
Speakers: Dana Price and Len Theivendra
There is tremendous value in our enterprises’ legacy Java applications.  When we modernize these applications, our options range from rewriting them from scratch to simply extending them to take advantage of new services.  Moving to containers and Kubernetes, there is an opportunity to adopt a more cloud-native Java runtime and agile DevOps processes.  One valuable modernization is the independent, agile delivery of the multiple microservices that may be present in our monolithic applications.  Join us to explore an AI-powered method for refactoring a monolithic application into ideal partitions based upon runtime observation of the interactions between its classes.

Exploring Event-Driven Messaging in a Hybrid Cloud Environment
Wed Oct 6, 3:45 PM – 4:20 PM
Speaker: Mary Grygleski
Building systems around an event-driven architecture can greatly enhance the efficiency of communications among its disparate components, especially in today’s modern computing environment, which may be a private, public, multi, or hybrid cloud. In this session, we will look at a hybrid cloud application that runs on multiple cloud platforms and leverages smart containerized microservices built with Open Liberty and MicroProfile Messaging, which utilizes Kafka as its messaging platform. Messages will be produced on a different cloud platform (Azure) with the consumer fetching these messages asynchronously as it runs on another cloud platform (IBM Cloud). We will demo the deployment and event subscription of the message consumer using OpenShift in real time. 

Landscape of MicroProfile and Jakarta EE Tools
Wed Oct 6, 5:15 PM – 5:50 PM
Speakers: Kathryn Kodama and YK Chang
Yes, I want to build my Java applications with MicroProfile and Jakarta EE. Then, do I have to build everything from scratch? Are there tools that will make coding my application easier? Join us as we answer these questions, demonstrate the tools in action, and talk about what’s coming next.
