Running Java Microservices on Docker

October 11, 2017


Many companies are choosing to move their enterprise applications to microservices running on Docker containers. In this presentation, Robert will discuss why this strategy is appealing. He’ll discuss how this architecture compares to legacy enterprise architectures. He’ll also talk about deploying container based microservices to AWS and useful technologies for managing cloud based containers.

Robert will demonstrate how to run a java-based Microservice in a Docker container. He will provide instructions prior to the meeting if participants would like to follow along with the demonstration.
