Who is this presentation for?

  • Developers and architects

Prerequisite knowledge

  • Basic programming experience

What you'll learn

  • Understand why JEE and related technologies are very well suited to building data processing systems
  • Learn how to design and implement a scalable and resilient system of loosely coupled data processing tasks


Big data processing, microservices, and cloud-native technology are a match made in computing heaven, enabling microservices to be used to build a flexible, scalable, and distributed system of loosely coupled data processing tasks, called data services.

Mario-Leander Reimer explores key JEE technologies that can be used to build JEE-powered data services and walks you through implementing the individual data processing tasks of a simplified showcase application. You’ll then deploy and orchestrate the individual data services using OpenShift, illustrating the scalability of the overall processing pipeline. The context and content is taken from a real-world project for a major German car manufacturer, implementing a microservices-based processing pipeline that uses car-related event data (sensor data, traffic events, and other real-time data) for a traffic information management and route optimization system.
