#Java #developer #cloud #environment #EE #MicroProfile #SpringBoot #OpenJ9 #Computer #Chapter

Are you a Java developer or Open Liberty user who is interested in improving your application's performance for the cloud environment?

In this talk, we will share insights about running Java EE, MicroProfile, and SpringBoot applications to quantify how well your application will perform with Open Liberty and OpenJ9 in different scenarios. We will discuss the cutting-edge advancements in the Eclipse OpenJ9 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) which is a core component of OpenJDK with OpenJ9. We will also talk about features that are important for cross platform performance as well as platform specific exploitation of the latest hardware features on Intel and other platforms.
