Developers and engineers are constantly looking for ways to update and modernize their Java-based applications. Containers are the most popular tool for packaging and deploying applications across different environments — so why not just containerize your Java apps? Unfortunately, the solution isn’t always simple: Moving to containers can lead to errors and outages, when the Java Virtual Machine doesn’t understand what it means to run in containers.

Join us on May 15, 2018, and learn best practices to modernize your Java-based applications. You’ll learn how containers affect JVM-based applications and what solutions are available.

You will learn:

  • What containers are and how they’re built
  • The challenges of containerizing JVM-based applications
  • How Java 9 and 10 have improved the JVM’s understanding of containers, and the work that still needs to be done
  • Best practices for avoiding common pitfalls associated with containerizing JVM-based applications
