Eberhard Wolff explains his assertion that "Java application servers are dead". He describes application server deployment and monitoring model complexities and WAR and EAR deployment format deficits. In turn he promotes simpler and more standard compliant alternatives based on language agnostic tool stacks, while also acknowledging valid non-technical reasons that can prevent their adoption.
Understanding how Java 8 lambdas capture state can help programmers create more efficient and elegant designs. Todd Montgomery discusses his findings in this space and also unveils Aeron, a new open source messaging library for enabling communication between high volume, low latency applications.
