Running an application typically involves multiple processes whether that's just an application server and database or multiple service implementations in a microservice architecture. Docker Compose provides a quick and easy mechanism to build, deploy, and run your application, whether locally on your system for development purposes or on a platform such as Docker Datacenter for production.
The series of videos in this post will show you how to build and run production Docker images for WAS traditional and IBM HTTP server.
A fun demonstration of how to build microservices with Liberty using throw-back text adventure game Game On! and a remote-controlled car that takes photos.
When running Java applications in a cloud, the supporting runtime needs to fit the cloud environment. WebSphere Liberty, with its small runtime size, low memory footprint and fast startup time, is the only Java application server that was designed from the ground up to be a cloud runtime.
In this article I will explain how to use the Liberty app accelerator to create a new Java application that is deployed on to the cloud and uses one of the Watson services.
In this tutorial you will learn how to install OpenShift Origin V3 and deploy multiple instances of WebSphere Liberty that contain your applications. You will use OpenShift to host your Liberty server, which is in the form of a Docker image.
A modern application server for hosting Java EE and OSGi applications during development, test, and production.
- Starts and stops quickly, typically in a few seconds.
- Requires little memory and disk space.
- Simple to configure with an XML file. Include only the capabilities required by your applications.
- Responds dynamically to application updates and server configuration changes.
- Built using IBM technologies and open source software packages from organizations such as Apache, Eclipse, and OW2.
